49ers’ Jimmy Garoppolo jumps seven spots in’s QB Index

Sep 20, 2019 at 2:46 PM--

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo's performance against the Cincinnati Bengals made national analysts take notice. After a somewhat uninspiring performance during Week 1 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Garoppolo threw for 296 yards with three touchdowns, an interception, and a passer rating of 131.0.

It was Garoppolo's highest passer rating with the 49ers and his highest since September 18, 2016, against Miami Dolphins as a member of the New England Patriots. analysts were among those who took notice. Garoppolo found himself up seven spots from last week in the site's QB Index, landing at No. 16.

Dan Parr of wrote the following of Garoppolo:

"Are we witnessing the beginning of the Jimmy G ascent the 49ers have long been waiting for? Garoppolo did have an ugly pick early vs. the Bengals on Sunday, but he bounced back to have his best game as a Niner. The key to his good start? It might be the combination of a strong running game with Kyle Shanahan's play-calling. Garoppolo has a perfect passer rating on play-action passes (15 of 19 for 280 yards, 3:0 TD-to-INT ratio and a whopping 14.7 yards per attempt, per Pro Football Focus)."

Garoppolo's move up the chart still wasn't enough to overtake any of his fellow NFC West quarterbacks.

Kyler Murray, a rookie with the Arizona Cardinals, also saw a seven-spot jump, remaining one position higher than Garoppolo at No. 15. Continuing around the NFC West, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson sits at No. 3 within the ranking while Jared Goff sits at No. 11.

The unproven Mason Rudolph of the Pittsburgh Steelers, the 49ers' opponent on Sunday, finds himself at the No. 29 spot.

H/t to Patrick Tulini for the find.

Kyle Shanahan on why Thursday was a 'real good' practice despite interceptions, and how picky 49ers are about Jimmy Garoppolo's destination

Trey Lance didn't exactly have a great stat line during Thursday's training camp session for the San Francisco 49ers, but head coach Kyle Shanahan says Lance was correct when he said Thursday's practice was better than Wednesday's despite multiple interceptions by the team's quarterbacks. Lance threw one of those interceptions and completed seven of 15 passes throughout the practice, while backups Nate Sudfeld and Brock Purdy threw three combined picks, according to 49ers beat reporter Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area. But afterwards, Lance told reporters he was encouraged with

Examining potential destinations for 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo

As the 49ers moves from Jimmy Garoppolo as its starting quarterback to second-year signal-caller Trey Lance, I can't help but explore the potential destinations for the veteran 30-year-old. The team is in somewhat of a bind as training camps across the league are already underway, yet Garoppolo remains under contract with the organization. In such a chaotic and uncharacteristic offseason with all of the quarterback movement, the 49ers missed out on moving Garoppolo. The 49ers may elect to hold off on making a move through training camp in case a starting quarterback on a playoff-hopeful team suffers an injury. It's a challenging position to be in as an organization, knowing Garoppolo's offseason shoulder surgery halted any trade hopes throughout the offseason while the

For months, San Francisco 49ers fans have been awaiting closure surrounding the quarterback situation with Jimmy Garoppolo and Trey Lance, and finally got some last week when head coach Kyle Shanahan declared that Lance was the guy moving forward at the position. Even more closure around Garoppolo could be on its way soon, as Marco Martinez of the "49ers RedZone" podcast confirmed to me on Thursday that the veteran quarterback's agent has indeed been in talks with the New York Giants, who have had themselves a bit of a quarterback dilemma after electing to bypass on Daniel Jones's fifth-year option and signing veteran Tyrod Taylor to a two-year deal in the offseason. Remember, Garoppolo currently has one year and $24.2 million left on his contract, but it's

Deshaun Watson faces six-game suspension; 49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo to Browns unlikely

A punishment for Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson, whose legal issues continue, has been decided. The 26-year-old player has faced 24 civil lawsuits from women accusing him of sexual misconduct and sexual assault. Twenty have been settled. The off-field controversies started last year during his time with the Houston Texans. In March, the Cleveland Browns traded multiple first-round picks and more for the talented quarterback. On Monday, former federal judge Sue L. Robinson determined that Deshaun Watson violated the personal conduct policy, imposing a six-game suspension. The NFL has until Thursday to appeal the decision, should the league feel the need to increase the suspension
