Tom Brady Has Message For Jimmy Garoppolo, 49ers
Tom Brady has a message for Jimmy Garoppolo and the 49ers.
That message? Just go win.
This week, the Niners quarterback spoke to reporters about his Hall of Fame ex-teammate and revealed that he received a special text message from him in the lead-up to the Super Bowl.

The text message contained well wishes and a motivational message to get Garoppolo pumped up.
“Yeah he shot me a text, just good luck and everything like that,” Garoppolo said.
“And you know just ‘go handle business,’ you know, wasn’t anything too complicated, just ‘go win.'”
Brady and Garoppolo played together for the first three years of the latter’s career.
Ultimately, in 2017, San Francisco sent a second-round pick to the Patriots in return for Garoppolo.
Garoppolo has started in each and every game for the 49ers this year.
Over the course of his tenure in New England, Garoppolo won two Super Bowl rings as a backup – one at Super Bowl XLIX and the other at Super Bowl LI.
Seeing as Brady obviously played in both of those outings, Garoppolo has obviously never seen any actual playing time in a championship game.
That will all change this Sunday when his Niners squad takes on the Kansas City Chiefs at Super Bowl LIV.
“He would have fun at all these events and everything like that, but when the game would come, he would lock in,” Garoppolo said of Brady.
“Get the game plan down and all that stuff. Anything you can learn from that guy. He is the best to ever do it. I was very privileged to have learned from him.”
Super Bowl LIV takes place in Miami, Florida, on Sunday February 2.
