Flowetry: The Jimmy Garoppolo Article written by Sequoia Sims

This article was written to express the importance of Jimmy Garoppolo and how much he means to the San Francisco 49ers and their fan base: "The Faithful." It is from a different perspective, using a different style of delivery.


Disclaimer: this article will be written without video attachments, statistics, and analytics.

Instead, it will be written and delivered via a style called Flowetry. What is Flowetry? A form of rapping in a poetic form; soft, melodic rhymes that form a story and bring light to a subject otherwise misunderstood (according to the Urban dictionary).

However, there's no misunderstanding of what Jimmy G truly is and what he means to the 49ers and their fan base. On a side note: permission to change your style to southpaw (boxing lingo)? Permission granted.

Flowetry: The Jimmy Garoppolo Article written by Sequoia Sims


It didn't take long to realize that Jimmy G was the franchise; a polarizing figure on and off the field that revitalized a fan base, teammates, and a franchise.

The demise of the 49ers post-Jim Harbaugh was short-lived; when it came down to the real eyeball test, it was Jimmy G, the real G, who laid those Jacksonville Jaguars to rest, 44 to 33.

Performing at his best, Jimmy G was above the rest; a five-game winning streak they said, Jimmy G started putting the naysayers to bed. A new contract was earned and warranted, highest paid at the time, and why not? Jimmy G drops slant passes on a dime.

His quick release has been known to frustrate pass rushing defenders at will, but after the game, those same defenders paid homage to his skill. Knowing what's at stake, it's time for an article break, I'm getting closer to home plate. Much like Jimmy G, I'm expected to perform at a high-efficiency rate.

While Jimmy G is calculating his offseason moves, on paper, the Los Angeles Rams' new-look defense can be intimidating and look defiant to the NFL salary cap rules. While most quarterbacks might be in a state of frailty, taming four-legged animals is Jimmy G's specialty.

Wait, stop, I can't hear a pin drop. I just went Ham, with complete Silence, of the Lambs... As I've said before, I'm not here as a witness. To be continued…

    Flowetry is not new they use it at different events, modeling and such. A much more advanced form than this nursery crap

    Hmm... Not sure if I like it. But it is new and unique. Those are two pluses in my book.

'I hope Trey is going after Jimmy's job': 49ers' George Kittle says Garoppolo thrives on competition

By David Bonilla

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle spoke with Cam Inman of Bay Area News Group this week. In what was probably some prep-work for the likely-to-be top discussion topic once training camp kicks off next week, the All-Pro player was asked about the upcoming training camp quarterback battle ... which may or may not be an actual battle. Players may be tired of discussing Jimmy Garoppolo's job. It has been a big storyline the past two offseasons. Last year, the focus was around the 49ers possibly replacing their quarterback, who had just helped guide the team to a Super Bowl, with future Hall of Famer Tom



NFL.com names Jimmy Garoppolo vs. Trey Lance as 49ers' top camp battle

There are many position battles to keep an eye on during the San Francisco 49ers' training camp. Which receiver will get the most playing time behind Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel? Will a young star cornerback emerge and climb the depth chart? Who will help Raheem Mostert contribute to what the team hopes is a punishing rushing attack? With the team's first practice scheduled for tomorrow morning, that's not where most of the attention will be, though. Marc Ross of NFL.com released his list of each team's top training camp battle to track, and he believes the focus in Santa Clara should be on the quarterback position. Adding a rookie with a



49ers' Kyle Shanahan: 'There's no open competition right now' between Jimmy Garoppolo, Trey Lance

Trey Lance may well find himself as the starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers before the season's out, but he clearly won't be starting training camp that way based on what head coach Kyle Shanahan said Tuesday. The 49ers obviously plan on Lance eventually being the starter over incumbent Jimmy Garoppolo after trading up to select him with the third overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. But as of now, the job remains Garoppolo's to lose. "There's no open competition right now in terms of they're getting equal reps with the same group," Shanahan told reporters Tuesday, one day before the start of camp. "Jimmy's coming in as the one and Trey's coming in as the two." Lance



Jimmy Garoppolo's ankle was 'an inch away from just snapping' last season, says 49ers' Trent Williams

By David Bonilla

Jimmy Garoppolo struggled to stay on the field last season, missing 10 total games as the San Francisco 49ers struggled to six wins. Trent Williams was among several players to speak to reporters today as the team reported to training camp. The offensive lineman revealed that Garoppolo's situation could have ended up being much worse. "A lot of people didn't know his ankle was damn near less than an inch away from just snapping," Williams told reporters. "Just watching him even fight through and try to play — a guy who has accomplished so much, got a lot of money, went to a Super Bowl — he didn't have to press forward like he tried to and tried to play hurt. The guys respect that." Garoppolo suffered his first injury — initially reported as a
