SANTA CLARA — The 49ers are 8-0. Here’s what stood out from their latest win.
1. QB Jimmy Garopolo. Bill Walsh used to say the quarterback defines the limit of his offense. Garoppolo certainly defines the limit of Kyle Shanahan’s offense. And until this game, I felt Garoppolo’s limit was limited. Wondered if he could carry the 49ers to victory. But, he did exactly that against the Cardinals. If Garoppolo plays this well every week, the 49ers will have no limit.
2. WR Emmanuel Sanders. Garoppolo is a faith-based passer.
