New Report Sheds Light on Jimmy Garoppolo Ghosting Niners

Jimmy the Ghost.

Jimmy Garoppolo faces an uncertain future as the Trey Lance era in San Fran has officially begun. Jimmy G waits patiently to be traded to a team that actually wants his particular set of skills. Until then all he can do is prepare for his next job while going to work at one that has plenty of awkward tension. And apparently his trade value in under assault, in some sort of ploy to make it nearly impossible to trade the former Patriots QB.

An unnamed member of the team’s coaching staff in 2018 told Mike Silver of the San Francisco Chronicle this about Garoppolo, via Peter King’s Football Morning in America:

“Once he left that press conference [announcing his new contract] nobody heard from him for weeks and weeks. He didn’t return calls, he didn’t return texts — he basically just vanished. And we were looking at each other going, ‘What just happened?’”

King paints the picture of a man completely removed:

“Garoppolo, who quarterbacked this team to a win over Aaron Rodgers and the top-seeded Packers eight months ago, is a strange sight to behold these days. He works out, throws and rehabs apart from his teammates, most often when they’re inside in meetings. When the other 89 men on the San Francisco roster are practicing outside, Garoppolo is usually inside, or on his way home. I heard he does not have a playbook, does not attend quarterback or team meetings and barely knows new quarterbacks coach Brian Griese.”

So to summarize:  Jimmy is an extremely aloof guy, who clearly marches to the beat of his own drum.

But what people don’t talk enough about is his winning  percentage as a starting QB.  That’s really all that should matter when it comes to his job as a starting QB.

Let Jimmy G go do his thing somewhere else, he definitely could use a change of scenery.
