Jeff Wilson Jr. says criticism of 49ers’ Jimmy Garoppolo, Kyle Shanahan is unfair

Feb 18, 2020 at 5:07 PM--

Kyle Juszczyk isn't the only San Francisco 49ers player who is tired of hearing about his quarterback, Jimmy Garoppolo, being criticized for his late-game performance against the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LIV. With the 49ers holding onto a 10-point lead late in the game, the offense wasn't able to manage much, allowing the Chiefs to storm back and score 21 unanswered points to win the game.

Garoppolo completed just three of his 11 passes for 36 yards, an interception, and a passer rating of 2.8 in the fourth quarter of the Super Bowl. Still, the quarterback wasn't the only one who was, perhaps unfairly, criticized. Head coach Kyle Shanahan also took some heat for his seemingly questionable game management.

Juszczyk saw the criticism as unfair, and running back Jeff Wilson Jr. agrees with his teammate.

Wilson joined Steve Wyche on NFL Network's Total Access on Tuesday and was asked if the criticism of Garoppolo and Shanahan is fair.

"No, it isn't because we were in the Super Bowl," Wilson responded. "Both of those guys got to the Super Bowl. With all the criticism (this season saying) they'll be 4-10, they won't win this amount of games, they won't do this, won't do this, but we got to the biggest stage there is.

"No matter if we win, lost, or tied in that game, they got there. Those two guys helped us get there, and they played a big role in that. So I feel like the criticism, they shouldn't have that, at all."

Deebo Samuel was one of the most exciting receivers from last year's draft class because of the versatility that he showed on offense during his rookie campaign. And he's a little tired of the media criticizing his quarterback, Jimmy Garoppolo. Samuel was watching ESPN's First Take debate whether or not Garoppolo is ready to become an elite quarterback. The receiver responded by posting on Instagram that Garoppolo is "already elite," and begged for media personalities, like First Take host Stephen A. Smith, to "stop playing," referring to the criticisms of the 49ers

Levin T. Black is an unsung podcast hero. Carefully striking a balance between obsessed analytics nerd and the wise elder statesman at the bar. His insights, humor, and wit are one-third of the very best 49ers podcast out there — the 49ers Webzone "No Huddle Podcast" (available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Google PlayMusic). I don't say this because I write for the Webzone myself. Long before I volunteered to write here, I would search for a good 49ers podcasts to listen to. It would take quite some time before I found the No Huddle Podcast. At that time, Levin T. Black was yet to join the crew, but it didn't take long to get hooked by host Zain Naqvi's commentary on the best franchise in sports. When Levin T. Black joined the
