In bold trade John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan traded to New England a high 2nd round draft choice for Jimmy Garoppolo. Jimmy G finally got his start first as a Niner on December 3 against the Chicago Bears and played well enough to lead the 49ers to a 15-14 win.
Jimmy’s numbers (26/37 for 293 years) were better than expected given the 49ers lack of offensive support and his limited knowledge of the Shanahan playbook. Jimmy was able to get the ball quickly when necessary as well as extend plays with his feet. Most notably is he made Trent Taylor look like several the small but effective receivers on the Patriots.
The future for the Niners and their Faithful is starting to look brighter now that the Niners have new leadership on and off the field.
