There’s no team as excited about finishing the season at 6-10 as the San Francisco 49ers.
With Jimmy Garoppolo under center, the Niners have an incredibly bright future.
And General Manager John Lynch has already made it clear that JimmyGQ is his quarterback of the future.
In five starts this season, the 26-year old signal caller tossed for 1,560 yards, seven touchdowns and five interceptions, but the most important stat is San Francisco’s perfect 5-0 record in Garoppolo’s five starts.
Can you imagine what the 6-10 Niners could have done with a full 16-game slate from Garoppolo?
The crazy thing is all Lynch gave up for Garoppolo is a second-round pick, as he acquired Garoppolo from the New England Patriots back in October.
Garoppolo spent three seasons in New England, learning under the great Bill Belichick and Tom Brady. In his two starts last season, Jimmy G went 2-0 with a 113.3 QB rating in six total appearances.
