Most 49ers fans want to see Jimmy Garoppolo play a maximum of one or two series vs. Broncos

Aug 19, 2019 at 1:53 PM--

Whispers from Denver are saying that Jimmy Garoppolo is likely to see two or three series tonight at Mile High Stadium against the Broncos. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback, as you well know, is making his first in-game appearance since suffering an ACL injury 11 months ago.

Of course, if Garoppolo comes out, leads a scoring drive in his first series, and goes something like 4-of-5 doing so, head coach Kyle Shanahan may just pull his franchise quarterback out of the game. Nothing is certain, yet.

"Want to play him," Shanahan told reporters on Saturday. "A lot has to do with when we watch his film from these two practices, how long we do play all our starters, what O-linemen are available and things like that. I'd like him to get in there for a little bit."

The 49ers will likely play against the Broncos without two starting offensive linemen. Center Weston Richburg remains on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list and definitely won't play. Starting right guard Mike Person suffered a minor left foot injury during Friday's joint practice with the Broncos and could be kept out.

We asked the Niner Faithful how much they feel Garoppolo should play on Monday night. Most voted for two series. Coming in second is one series, and third is three or more series.

At the time of this post, nearly 10 percent of fans believe Garoppolo shouldn't play at all to avoid another injury.

Kyle Shanahan says Jimmy Garoppolo, offense have to play better after 49ers' loss to Cardinals

There's plenty of blame to go around for the 49ers' 24-20 loss to the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, but one place the team will need to find some answers in a hurry is on offense, particularly in the passing game. On the surface, the numbers the 49ers put up through the air on Sunday don't look too bad, with starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo finishing with 259 yards, two touchdowns, zero interceptions, and a 103.0 rating on 19 of 33 passing. But on Sunday there were certainly some inconsistencies in Garoppolo's game, which showed up on third and fourth downs in particular. The 49ers converted just two of 11 third-down opportunities on Sunday, while also falling short on each of their two chances on fourth down. One of Garoppolo's touchdown passes came on a

San Francisco 49ers fans could see a lot of a familiar face this weekend when their favorite team takes on the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium. That's because running back Le'Veon Bell is expected to miss "a couple of weeks," according to Jets head coach Adam Gase. That could mean the 49ers defense facing a healthy dose of Frank Gore, the Bay Area team's all-time leading rusher and a fan favorite. Le'Veon Bell could be out "a couple weeks," per Adam Gase.— Ralph

Peter Schrager of Good Morning Football recently called the San Francisco 49ers one of the most disrespected conference champions in recent memory. With the regular season less than a week away, the disrespect seemingly continues. Not only is Peter King of NBC Sports not picking San Francisco to win the NFC, but he doesn't even envision the team winning its division. King has the 49ers earning the No. 5 seed in the conference and the Seattle Seahawks winning the NFC West. The reason? Quarterbacks. "San Francisco, up by two scores with eight minutes left in the Super Bowl and with so many key guys returning, is a
