49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo isn't afraid of failing, says Kyle Shanahan

Jimmy Garoppolo delivered a gutsy, playoff-clinching performance last Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams, with help from his elite supporting cast, to send the 49ers to the playoffs, where they'll face the long-time rival Dallas Cowboys in the wildcard round. While it was uncertain leading up to the Rams game whether Garoppolo would be healthy enough to play given that he suffered a torn UCL ligament in his thumb just two weeks prior, the veteran quarterback looked as if he hadn't ever sustained an injury, and brushed off a sluggish start to bring the 49ers back in the second half en route to a 27-24 victory over their divisional rivals. While Garoppolo certainly has had his fair share of interceptions this season, including two on Sunday, he's always been a



Kyle Shanahan explains his unwavering trust in Jimmy Garoppolo, says 49ers are 'battle-tested'

Jimmy Garoppolo makes his mistakes. That hasn't deterred head coach Kyle Shanahan from sticking with him, though. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback delivered a gutsy performance in the regular-season finale against the Los Angeles Rams, playing through a torn ligament and chipped bone in his right thumb. The Week 18 win set up a playoff matchup against an old rival—the Dallas Cowboys. The 49ers went into AT&T Stadium and emerged with a 23-17 victory, which was anything but pretty. A playoff win is a playoff win, though, and the Niners will move on to Lambeau Field to face the Green Bay Packers. Garoppolo finished the game 16-of-25 passing for a pedestrian 172 yards and a rather ugly interception. But he did so while enduring the pain of throwing. That



Uncertain future helped Jimmy Garoppolo lock in on 49ers' playoff run, says Kyle Shanahan

Jimmy Garoppolo has openly acknowledged he is well aware that each game could be his last with the San Francisco 49ers. He knows the team's situation. The 49ers used a lot of draft capital to trade up and acquire his successor, Trey Lance, with the No. 3 overall pick. Lance, not Garoppolo, is the quarterback of the future. That could have created an awkward situation for Garoppolo. That wasn't the case earlier in the season because it was easy enough to focus on the many remaining games. However, as that number of games diminished, Garoppolo started to think about his situation. Before the regular-season finale against the Los Angeles Rams, before the 49ers clinched a playoff berth, Garoppolo approached his fullback, Kyle



49ers more excited about Trey Lance now than when they drafted him, says John Lynch

Trey Lance has primarily spent his first NFL season as a student, learning the game. He's had two starts in place of an injured Jimmy Garoppolo but has spent most game days on the sideline as an observer. San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch has benefited from watching Lance in practices all season and witnessing his development. On Friday morning, Lynch joined 95.7 The Game and was asked how he would evaluate the rookie's first season. "I think it's been awesome," Lynch responded. "And a lot of people, I'm sure, are like, 'Man, this guy's crazy. What do you mean? He hasn't played that much.' But we had a plan for Trey, and I think the plan was to take it week by week. And we just wanted to see constant growth and development. "The thing
