Jimmy Garoppolo is “good to go” for training camp


Jimmy Garoppolo went on a media tour Tuesday, promoting Men’s Wearhouse’s annual Suit Drive, which provides gently used professional attire to those re-entering the workplace.

“It allows men and women to make a good first impression,” Garoppolo said in a phone interview. “I think it applies to the whole football mindset of ‘look good, feel good, play good.'”

The good news for 49ers Nation is Garoppolo feels good.

“I really do,” the quarterback said. “The rehab process has gone really well. Knock on wood. We haven’t had any setbacks. OTAs went about as well as I could have hoped for and now for training camp hopefully we’ll be full go with team drills and all that stuff. We’re moving in the right direction. We’ve just got to keep going day by day and keep stacking them together. It’s a long process, but we’ve come this far, so why stop now, right?”

Garoppolo does not expect to start on the physically unable to perform list, planning to be full go on Day One.

“I’m sure hoping so,” Garoppolo said. “The training staff, the coaches, we’ve kind of put together a plan and everything like that. We’ll kind of assess the situation as we get closer to it.”

Garoppolo tore his left anterior cruciate ligament during a Sept. 23 game against the Chiefs. He got one snap in 11-on-11 drills during organized team activities.

But he has no restrictions, cleared to do everything.

“I’m good to go. Finally,” he said.

Garoppolo has worked with quarterback coaches Tom House and Adam Dedeaux this summer and now is getting in work with his receivers in the Bay Area.

“We get a good group of guys, a ton of guys,” Garoppolo said. “It’s encouraging to see that.”

Having missed most of last season, Garoppolo is ready for training camp and ready to show he’s “good to go.”

  1. A far better QB than Aaron Rodgers. Stats and time will prove it, plus he likes his family.

  2. i have been so curious about what he can really do if he played a full season. he seems like the real deal. love to find out one way or the other. flashes of brilliance are not much to go by.

  3. Darryl thinks he’s such a man because he works in a warehouse. Well, big deal! I worked in a warehouse. Men’s Wearhouse. I was a greeter. I’d like to see Darryl greet people. He’d probably make them feel like wimps. Not me, I… “Hello, I’m Michael. Welcome to Men’s Wearhouse. We have a special on khaki pants today.” This is one example.

  4. I’m cautiously optimistic: cautious in that he has yet to start a full (hell even a half) season. Optimistic in that he seems to have all the qualities but the jury is still out.

    Luckily the 49ers can dump him with little cap hit after next season if he fails to take his place as “the guy”.

  5. Football is a bit harder when you don’t have that patriotpriviledge a Jimmy.

    Except for the part about starting games, throwing the ball, completing passes, winning, etc.

  7. 49’rs Nation does not exist – there is only 1 nation, Raider Nation.
    Is this why after years of dominance by the 9ers, the Raiders turned tail and got the hell out of California?

  8. Run ‘n tellit – you heard it here first: The Niners WILL win their Division THIS season. Watch!!!

  9. Garoppolo is massively over rated, this guy has to be the most over hyped QB of the last 10yrs or so. Jimmy G will be broken and on IR by week 8.

    Thank you hawkkiller!, i agree 1000%, this clown started only 7 career games before he signed that massive, lucrative contract & he ruined the pay scale for the up and coming young q.b.’s that need a new contract, O-V-E-R-R-A-T-E-D!!!

  11. This certainly seems like it might be Jimmy’s G’s last chance to stay reasonably healthy, play a full season, and establish himself as a good, productive NFL QB?

  12. Jimmy Garoppolo is “good to go” for training camp…Until he dislocates his pinky toe while walking in the front door of their training facility.
