Fred Warner explains why the 49ers have unwavering trust in Jimmy Garoppolo

Jan 26, 2022 at 1:35 PM--


Jimmy Garoppolo has had to block out a lot of outside noise. You have to imagine that can be tough at times. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback is often criticized by the media and a vocal portion of the fanbase.

Garoppolo spoke with reporters before Wednesday's practice and said he refuses to get lost in the noise. He knows no good will come from listening to it. Instead, he stays focused on the task ahead. Last week, it was upsetting the top-seeded Green Bay Packers. This week, it is beating the Los Angeles Rams for the third time this season and advancing to the Super Bowl for the second time in three years.

"I think it's just about knowing yourself as a player, as a person," Garoppolo said. "And as long as these guys in this locker room have faith in me and belief in me, that's all I really care about."

Garoppolo's play can be erratic. He'll make a big play, and then later make a costly mistake. However, the one thing you can't ignore is that the 49ers win more often with Garoppolo under center than without him. That has been enough to maintain the trust of his teammates, even when Garoppolo's production falters.

"Well, we're able to maintain trust in him because we keep winning," star linebacker Fred Warner said on Wednesday. "A quarterback, if you went down the list of the order of importance of positions on the team, quarterback's number one. A team's success is very heavily dependent on the quarterback position. So the fact that we're winning games is not just a surprise.

"Jimmy's playing great football, and it's a team game. It's not just all heavily dependent upon if Jimmy does well, then we're gonna win. No, he does exactly what we need him to, and he comes into work every single day, and it is the exact same person.

"He's not on social media looking at what everybody's tweeting about him. Who knows what he does outside of the building. I don't know. But I know, as soon as he comes inside this building, he's literally the same exact person every day, no matter what. I think that's what we all kind of respect the most. He always comes to work and is always trying to get better."

Fred Warner believes Deebo Samuel 'loves the team' but Pelissero says 49ers, WR remain in 'standoff'

San Francisco 49ers star linebacker Fred Warner spoke with NFL Network's Tom Pelissero following the NFL's schedule release yesterday. The Pro Bowl and All-Pro defender was asked about his disgruntled teammate, wide receiver Deebo Samuel, who requested a trade this offseason. Samuel is eligible for a contract extension, but there have been no updates on that front. And the 49ers didn't grant his wish for a trade either. Warner told Pelissero that 49ers teammates, like quarterback Trey Lance and tight end George Kittle, have been in contact with Samuel since the trade request became public last month. Pelissero pressed Warner to reveal his level of confidence that Samuel is playing for the 49ers come Week 1 against the Chicago Bears. "I

The San Francisco 49ers came in at No. 9 in ESPN's post-draft power ranking. If you were upset about that underwhelming result, the Bay Area squad's placement in ESPN's Football Power Index (FPI) isn't going to make you any happier. San Francisco came in at No. 24 in the FPI rankings, at 6.1 points worse than the metric of an average NFL team on a neutral



Breer: Jimmy Garoppolo's 49ers fate dependent on Trey Lance's offseason development

By David Bonilla

Jimmy Garoppolo has remained on the San Francisco 49ers roster far longer than anyone expected or predicted. The Niners have tried to trade the veteran, clearing the way for second-year quarterback Trey Lance. However, offseason shoulder surgery halted trade discussions, and the 49ers, for now, appear stuck with Garoppolo and his hefty salary. The 49ers have maintained that they are comfortable holding onto Garoppolo if they cannot strike a deal to their liking. Everyone realizes, though, that Plan A is to trade the quarterback for something worthwhile rather than letting him fulfill his contract on the team and leave as a free agent in 2023. Releasing Garoppolo would also net them nothing, aside from salary cap space. Holding onto Garoppolo might happen. Most of



Ross Tucker believes 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo to Panthers remains a possibility

Former NFL offensive lineman turned sports broadcaster and analyst Ross Tucker doesn't "believe for a second" that the Carolina Panthers and Seattle Seahawks will enter Week 1 of the 2022 season with one of their current quarterbacks as the starter. Instead, he feels both teams will make a move to prevent that from happening. I don't believe for a second that the Panthers & Seahawks are going into Week 1 with their current QBs on the roster.— Ross Tucker (@RossTuckerNFL) May 16,
