Jimmy Garoppolo: Knee’s a little sore after low hit, “no place for that” in the game

49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo‘s surgically repaired left knee took a big shot during Sunday’s game, but Garoppolo said there was never a doubt that he’d be staying on the field.

Garoppolo took a helmet to the knee from Saints defensive lineman Malcolm Roach after throwing a pass and appeared to be a fair amount of pain after the play. Garoppolo told reporters after the game that he never considered going to the sideline because he “knew what type of game it was” and that it wasn’t the only hit he took over the course of the 13-0 win.

While he wasn’t seriously hurt, Garoppolo still thought the hit, which was penalized, was something that should be out of the game.

“You’ve got to be smart as players, look out for one another,” Garoppolo said, via 49ersWebzone.com. “There’s no place for that. I’m all right. A little sore but nothing bad.”

Garoppolo finished 26-of-37 for 222 yards and one touchdown, which was a good complement to a defense that has not allowed a point in the second half of any game during their current four-game winning streak.

  1. He’s right. Saints played very dirty in this game. Nothing seems to have changed since their bounty program days.

  2. I’m sorry Jimmy was upset about being hit. However, he was tackled outside of the pocket by a diving player. It was a clean hit. If the saints were playing dirty they would be winning! not the case here!!

  3. Legal hit should have never drawn a flag. He was way outside the tackle box.

    That was one in a number of played they screwed the saints. From the last obviously offsides bosa play to not knowing what a catch is anymore in the league.

    They hosed the saints. I would be more worried about the lack of scoring they did rather than a legal hit. The one td they did have was pure luck.

  4. No team cries more about calls than the Saints. Thought that would end when Peyton left but Allen is taking up the mantle.

    I mean if you ignore the fact Saints got away with a horse collar, 3 facemasks and 10-12 holds uncalled while right in front of refs sure thing. Drake Jackson was legitimately tackled in the backfield going for Dalton and still didn’t get the flag. But yeah they got hosed….

  7. I see Jimmy Glass learned from Tammy Brady.

    Whhahahahahaha

    Everything should be given to me!

    When you’re outside the tackle box there is no low hit.

  8. Saints fans shouldn’t complain about not getting calls. They were gifted a Super Bowl by the league.

  9. Gotta love 49er fans. Don’t know the rules but are aware of the BountyFarce. “When the passer goes outside the pocket area and either continues moving with the ball (without attempting to advance the ball as a runner) or throws while on the run, he loses the protection of the one-step rule provided for in (a) above, and the protection against a low hit provided for in (e) above, but he remains covered by all the other special protections afforded to a passer in the pocket.”
