He was really having a good season.  With that defense, the 49rs could have made a deep playoff run.  

I really wouldn't mind the Colts bringing him in.  

 

How many full seasons has Jimmy G ever played? At some point, the QB who could be on GQ, has to show he can be available as much as he can play QB. 

 

The true question is - are you going to build a team that gives him all the weapons he needs? Or are you going to build an elite D that allows him to make plays only when necessary. 

 

Here is a stat to chew on:

 

Per PFF, Garoppolo is the only QB since 2006 with at least three playoff starts to average fewer than 25 dropbacks per game. Garoppolo is averaging 18.7 dropbacks in his playoff career.

 

This goes to show you that if ever you want Jimmy G to win a game on his arm, you are more likely to be disappointed as Kyle Shanahan has managed Jimmy G's high floor/low ceiling well enough with a stellar run game and the D Lynch has put together.

I'm not saying he would be the savior, but he has been good his entire career.  

47-17 record

67.2 completion %

87 TD's, 42 INT's

Career rating of 99.6

Getting Jimmy G would allow us to bring along a rookie slowly but lots and lots of injury guarantees need to be in place, IMO. The leeway the franchise will get with a rookie, with lowered expectations and time to build for a couple of years might be the better way to go.

So a guy that has was Mr. Irrelevant, Brock Purdy throws two TDs in beating a very good Dolphins team. He had no NFL experience. This while Matt Ryan and the Colts are disgraced on national television. The Colts next win may come against an equally impotent team in the Texans and that will end another season of failures.

I think the common denominator is not in those names. 

 

Anyway, they both have done a good job for the team as needed, but if anyone expects Jimmy G to come to a different team and contribute Ws, they would be disappointed. Not to mention his yearly injuries and the games he misses regularly. But, he'll be a good vet bridge QB though.

If Purdy goes unbeaten over the next 4 games, it would be hard to bench him for Jimmy G even if Jimmy G comes back. It makes the 49ers decision easier to move on from Jimmy G too, IMO. It would be like Jim Harbaugh rolling with Kaepernick all the way to the SB or like Bill Parcells rolled with Jim Hostetler when Phil Simms got injured, and went all the way to SB XXV, winning it.

That's true.. Usually the term "hot hand" is talked about running back committee but for San Francisco, it applies to the QB. Nick Mullens did well in previous years too. 

 

As long as their run game is working, their QB needs to be smart enough to do his best in not making game changing mistakes. Their defense has been amazing to say the least, having not missed any beat at all. Their offensive skill players are much better unit now.
