The 49ers fell to 1-10 at the hands of the Seattle Seahawks at Levi's Stadium on Sunday. It was the 49ers' eighth straight loss to Seattle, dating back to 2014.

It was a one-point game at the half, with the 49ers trailing 7-6. The Seahawks pulled away in the second half, outscoring the 49ers 17-0. Russell Wilson provided most of the offense for Seattle, going 20-of-34 for 228 yards with two touchdowns and an interception to Eric Reid on the game's first play. It was the first time in Wilson's career that he has been intercepted on the first play of a game.

C.J. Beathard got the start for the 49ers and struggled most of the day. He was never able to get comfortable in the pocket, as the fierce Seattle pass rush hit him 13 times and sacked him three times. Beathard finished the day 22-of-38 for 201 yards and an interception. He left the game late after a hit to his knee.

However, the story of this game will undoubtedly be the last sequence.

Jimmy Garoppolo entered the game for Beathard with 1:07 left in the fourth quarter to a rousing ovation. He ran for a first down on his first play and then completed his first two passes.

Garoppolo ended the game with an exclamation point by throwing a 10-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Louis Murphy. He looked poised in the pocket and scrambled to his left before hitting Murphy near the sideline for the touchdown.

Carlos Hyde struggled to get anything going, rushing for 47 yards on 16 carries. He was the 49ers' leading receiver with seven catches. The running game overall never really got going as the 49ers started the game with five punts on their first six possessions and throwing an interception during the other series.

The defense played well in the first half, holding Seattle to seven points but ultimately couldn't stop Wilson from making plays in the second half. They failed to record a sack but hurried Wilson for much of the day. In addition to his interception, Reid led the team in tackles (7). Reuben Foster was second on the team with six.

The 49ers were penalized seven times for 74 yards, including a questionable pass interference penalty against Dontae Johnson late in the third quarter that gave Seattle 1st-and-goal. The Seahawks proceeded to score a touchdown to make it 21-6 and never looked back.

Still, the story of the game will most definitely be Garoppolo. Head coach Kyle Shanahan will have a decision to make on who to start next Sunday in Chicago.

Next game: December 3rd at Chicago (10 a.m. PST)

Florio predicts the 49ers will release Jimmy Garoppolo rather than trade or keep the QB

What will the San Francisco 49ers do with quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo? The simple answer is that the team will retain his services, should a perceived upgrade not present itself. If a perceived upgrade is acquired, then the team will likely try to shop the quarterback. "Most presume he'll be traded," wrote Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk on Tuesday. "But here's the question: If the 49ers don't want to keep Garoppolo at the balance of his current contract, who would trade for the thing?" The New England Patriots would likely welcome back Garoppolo with open arms — for the right price. They have the cap space to absorb his salary.



ESPN predicts Jimmy Garoppolo as the 49ers' starting QB in 2021

ESPN offered a vote of confidence in Jimmy Garoppolo as the San Francisco 49ers' starting quarterback in 2021 — sort of. Insider Field Yates predicted the starting quarterback for each NFL team. Some changes include Deshaun Watson for the Carolina Panthers, Carson Wentz for the Indianapolis Colts, Sam Darnold for the Chicago Bears, and Marcus Mariota for the New England Patriots. Of course, you also have rookies on the list. Yates has Trevor Lawrence with the Jacksonville Jaguars, Justin Fields with the Houston Texans, and Zack Wilson with the New York Jets. While Yates lists Garoppolo as the



'He won't be an elite quarterback': PFF lists 49ers with 'high' QB need due to Jimmy Garoppolo's shortcomings

We have just one sample of a full season with Jimmy Garoppolo as a starter. During that 2019 season, the quarterback led the San Francisco 49ers to 13 regular-season wins and a playoff run ending with a Super Bowl appearance. Outside of that, Garoppolo was a backup in New England and has battled to stay on the field due to injuries in San Francisco. Anthony Treash of Pro Football Focus recently ranked every NFL team's quarterback situation by need. After all, the quarterback can be the most important position on a team, and those that have elite ones can have longer championship windows. The 49ers fell under "high" for quarterback need, which within this ranking means the current starter



Jimmy Garoppolo gets vote of confidence from 49ers legend Patrick Willis

By Kirk Larrabee
Feb 19, 2021

Patrick Willis hasn't lost faith in Jimmy Garoppolo's ability to be the long-term answer at quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, assuming the seventh-year signal-caller can stay healthy and get more help from the defense. Willis weighed in on Garoppolo and other subjects in an interview conducted with Fox News that was published Friday. The 49ers legend reportedly said he thinks his former team should keep Garoppolo in the starting quarterback spot and that Garoppolo will have success if two key conditions are met. "I think they've seen him at his best," Willis is quoted as saying. "Now if they go get him that defense, that same type of defense they
