Hello 49ers Faithful. It’s official. Jimmy Garoppolo will start Sunday against the Chicago Bears. Kyle Shanahan informed his quarterbacks earlier today.
When C.J. Beathard left Sunday’s game with knee and hip injuries, Garoppolo came in and dazzled. He was in for three plays, but those three plays were a four yard scramble, a nine yard pass to Aldrick Robinson, and a 10-yard TD to Louis Murphy. Like I said, he dazzled.
With Beathard getting beat up week after week and not being 100%, it is no surprise that Shanahan has decided to see what Garoppolo can do. For his career, Garoppolo is 65 of 96 for 708 yards, six touchdowns and no interceptions. Here we go.
On this week’s Talking Touchdowns podcast, TheFootballGirl.com’s Melissa Jacobs joins Steph and I to talk all things Jimmy Garoppolo and the 49ers. It was at the end of the podcast that we got the breaking news that would Garoppolo would start Sunday, so that was good timing.
