Jimmy Garoppolo Gets Honest About the Platoon Situation With Trey Lance

San Francisco 49ers Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is currently the QB1 for the Niners. Sort of. He’s also splitting some snaps with Niners rookie Quarterback Trey Lance. It’s a platoon situation, one you normally don’t see in the NFL. Jimmy is doing his best to hide the fact he’s not too happy about the coach’s decision to play Trey and Jimmy.

During the game this past weekend, Garoppolo hugged Trey Lance after he threw a touchdown pass. Fox analyst Mark Sanchez commented:

“Those aren’t easy hugs to give.”

Jimmy was asked about Sanchez hug comment.

“He’s not wrong,” Garoppolo said while laughing slightly, “No, it is what it is type of situation. It’s one of those; we had a good drive, marched down there. Kyle called the package, and he’s the head coach. Whatever he calls, goes. Just one of those things, you can only control what you can control. I’m out there with my boys, making the best of it, having a good time. At the end of the day, we’re playing football, trying to get a win. Whatever it takes. It is what it is, you know?”

Garoppolo elaborated:

“It’s kind of one of those situations where, I know the guys in the locker room. They know me. I know where I stand with them. At the end of the day, that’s what really matters. As long as those guys got my back, I’ve got no problem doing whatever it takes to win. I don’t know, this league is crazy how things happen. You’ve just got to roll with the punches kind of, and let the chips fall as they may that the end. You know, we’ll see where everything is at the end.”

There’s a reason NFL team don’t deploy a two QB system, it generally doesn’t work over a long period of time.

It’s a novelty and one that has proven to work against team comradery.

We will see how long they can keep it going in San Fran.
