Jimmy Garoppolo Gets Very Honest About 49ers Future
Jimmy Garoppolo got very honest about his 49ers future this week.
Last Sunday, San Francisco lost Super Bowl 54 to the Kansas City Chiefs.
It was an embarrassing defeat that was largely the result of Garoppolo’s shoddy play and Kyle Shanahan’s conservative play calling.
Now all involved are dealing with the fallout.
There have been calls for the 49ers to get rid of Garoppolo and seek out a new quarterback option, but in all likelihood that cannot happen.
Instead, Garoppolo will simply have to get past his two-interception showing in the Super Bowl and move on.
Speaking to the media this week, the 28-year-old opened up about what was going on his mind right now.
“It sucked. I wouldn’t want to put anyone in my head that Monday morning, just going through all that stuff. But like I said: Special year, special group of guys, no one I’d rather be in a foxhole with than these guys. Just love all of ‘em.” – Jimmy Garoppolo pic.twitter.com/FjlYdRyrdo

“It sucked. I wouldn’t want to put anyone in my head that Monday morning, just going through all that stuff,” he said.
“But like I said: Special year, special group of guys, no one I’d rather be in a foxhole with than these guys. Just love all of ‘em.”
One thing Garoppolo did prove this past season was that he could get past his ACL injury and be a productive game manager.
If he can just build on that and become a more reliable offensive option, Garoppolo could turn into he sort of quarterback everyone hoped he would be when San Francisco originally acquired him.
