The San Francisco 49ers franchise's starting quarterback, Jimmy Garoppolo, pulled an Aaron Rodgers: R-E-L-A-X. Relax.


On August 19 in the second preseason game on Monday night against the Denver Broncos, 49ers fans were excited the 27-year-old would make his preseason debut.

Garoppolo, who was put on the team's injured reserve list, returned from an ACL injury in a Week 3 loss last season against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Garoppolo played the first three series against the Broncos, and he did not have a strong performance with him going 1-of-6 for zero yards and an interception. Social media let him have it.







In the 49ers' Week 3 preseason victory against the Kansas City Chiefs, Garoppolo was 14-of-20 for 188 yards, no interceptions, and a nice 20-yard touchdown pass to running back Matt Breida.

Social media seems to have changed its tune.








The 49ers held on to beat the Chiefs 27-17.

Despite the first drive stalling on 4th-and-1, the 49ers, led by Garoppolo, scored 13 points through five drives.

The New England Patriots drafted Garoppolo out of Eastern Illinois in the second round of the 2014 draft and planned to groom him to be Tom Brady's successor.

On October 31, 2017, the Patriots traded Garoppolo to the 49ers in exchange for a second-round pick in 2018.

Garoppolo became a fan favorite of the 49ers after winning his first five starts with the team, which included wins over the Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars, both of which made the playoffs.
