49ers plan extensive preseason playing time for Jimmy Garoppolo

Jimmy Garoppolo will get a long opportunity to shake off his ugly preseason debut.

Garoppolo, the 49ers quarterback who had a terrible game on Monday night, will get a lot of playing time on Saturday in Kansas City, head coach Kyle Shanahan said today.

Shanahan’s plan is for Garoppolo to play the first half and perhaps even start the third quarter, depending on how the first half goes.

On Monday night in Denver, Garoppolo was a horrific 1-for-6 for 0 yards, with an interception and another pass that should have been intercepted but was blocked. The 49ers’ line didn’t give him much time to pass, and he looked rattled in his first action since tearing his ACL last year.

That torn ACL happened in Kansas City, and Garoppolo will return to the scene of his injury on Saturday, where the 49ers hope he can put both the injury and his previous ugly outing behind him.

  1. What Jimmy G needs is to find his timing. Two of his passes last week where blocked at the line. His picks are cause he is half a second too late. Playing time is what he needs. If he gets hurt again move on. Period.

  2. He needs the extra work because he’s been stinking up the joint. Jimmy’s not hungry anymore.

    Clara is a day late and a dollar long on everything while trying to keep up with the Seahawks


    The team that hasn’t won the division in the last two years and outside of Wilson and Wagner have no names filling positions? Yeah you’re as delusional as you are pathetic.

    As for Jimmy G, he’s pretty much picking up where he left off last season – which is a bad thing. The defense and run game will be what carries the Niners this season.

  4. Tom Brady did not do much in the Super Bowl either. He is supposed to be the greatest of all time. Jared Goff did even worse than Brady in that game. Good pitching can stop good hitting, and a good defense can stop a good offense. Russell Wilson the 35 million dollar man scored only 3 points against a good Minnesota Viking defense. Joe Flacco makes almost as much money as Jimmy G., and did he have a great game against Frisco? Why are people so hard on Jimmy.

  5. I have a hunch that people who put Jimmy G. down are the same people who claim that Colin Kaepernick has NOT been blackballed by the NFL, and that Kap is unemployed simply because he is the worst quarterback who ever started an NFL game. The only connection between Jimmy G and Kap is that both played for Frisco. Some people simply hate the Frisco 49ers and their quarterbacks and head coaches (like Jim Harbaugh). They do not want Frisco to succeed.

  6. He wasn’t good on Monday but things are being blown out of proportion as usual. He had two passes knocked down where he made the right read and throw because the Guard stopped playing and had an unblocked Chubb in his face (yeah I know how that sounds) on the pick. He really only made on poor decision and throw which was the pass that should have been picked out to the right side but was dropped. He’ll be fine.

  7. Let me ask Jimmy G critics. If CJ Beathard (1-9 liftime) a better quarterback than Jimmy G (8-2 lifetime as a starter).

  8. Man, it was brutal to watch. Chubbs was trying to put him back on IR and his Oline seemed ready to oblige….

    He will be out of the league in 2 years. Mark my words.
    It’s more likely that he will be at his old locker in New England in 2 years.

  10. All I have see in a comment or article is the word ‘Frisco’ and I already know the person is clueless about the area and the team that plays there.

  11. If Bill is as ruthless as he is with keeping players and thought Jimmy would be better than Brady he would have traded Brady to the 49ers, there is a reason why Bill didn’t keep him. Beside not being the generational talent the 49ers though he was, the other issues are the overall roster is not that good which is on Lynch (Lynch seems to be headed more towards Millen then Ozzie) and Offensive coaches for the most part have very short shelf lives because the D-coordinators figure out how to beat them and they can’t adjust, Shanahan.

  12. Uh, isn’t it pretty well accepted that any quarterback, even the best ones, when coming back from a ACL struggle the first year? He’s not going to return to form right away, that’s just natural. But I guess overreactions are natural too.

  13. Or… how about we give the Broncos defense some credit instead of making the narrative about Jimmy G being so bad. I think the Broncos defense will be a good unit this year.

  14. The team that hasn’t won the division in the last two years and outside of Wilson and Wagner have no names filling positions? Yeah you’re as delusional as you are pathetic.


    Russell Wilson? The guy who joined Peyton Manning as the only two QB’s in NFL history to throw for 3k yards and 20TDs every season for the first 7 seasons?

    Bobby Wagner? the QB of the defense? The number 1 middle linebacker in all of football?

    Just those two guys alone with no-names around them and Pete as their coach should win 8 games. Expect more this year.

    True, the Seahawks only just made the playoffs last year in a rebuilding year but the Niners were a 6 win team. The niners have been below the Seahawks in every possible way ever since Richard Sherman tipped that Kaepernick pass away in the endzone in the NFCC.

    But those days are long over…Jim left town he was so defeated and Yorked. No point in talking about it now.

    Jimmy has 2 rings and a boat load of cash hes set!
    he contributed ZERO to those 2 rings, he is the most overrated and overpaid player in the history of the NFL.

  16. At least the 49er were smart enough to front load his contract as far as cap hit. while he is one of the top 5 QB’s currently paid, his cap hit is pretty minimal after 2019.

  17. People are saying that Jimmy G. (6-2 as 49er starter) a bust, but nobody is calling CJ Beathard (1-9) or Nick Mullens (3-5) as 49er starter a bust.

    Panic mode. 5-11.

    You are likely correct that will be the Seahawks record this year. Seahawk fans are so accurate about their team!
    They started wearing those 1-2 jerseys well before that became the Seahawks Super Bowl record.

  19. Baker Mayfield was 10/26 for 70 yards in the preseason game against TB. He is a bust. LOL Nevertheless, nobody is going to claim that because he is not Jimmy G or Kap.
