49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo played better than you think in 2019

Sure, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo didn’t close out Super Bowl LIV in the way you’d expect a franchise-elite signal-caller should.

Whether it be his fourth-quarter overthrow intended for now-New Orleans Saints wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders, a couple of painful interceptions or some missed targets, Garoppolo was far from perfect in the biggest game of his career.

So, considering the attention given to the Super Bowl, it’s no surprise the Niners’ loss with Jimmy G at the helm prompted all kinds of discussion San Francisco should seek a replacement this offseason, ranging from quarterbacks Tom Brady, Kirk Cousins and now, even the former Carolina Panthers star, Cam Newton.
