Good morning folks. I’m still recovering from my honeymoon earlier this past week, but as I understand it, there is still NFL football to be played and Jimmy Garoppolo to watch. I also have heard, though this is unconfirmed, that the San Francisco 49ers will be playing the Jacksonville Jaguars today. Don’t hold me to that, it’s just a rumor I heard.
Jacksonville is a good team, still young with some issues and perfectly capable of self-destructing. But smart money is on them maintaining their strong play, and beating the 49ers. They have a great pass rush and a great secondary, and I don’t expect Garoppolo will have a phenomenal performance against them. Truthfully, I just want him to get out of the whole thing without injuries.
Seeing him succeed would be a bonus, but not a necessary one to secure his future as the franchise quarterback in San Francisco. We’ve got two games left, let’s see some good football and no injuries. Go Niners. Onto your links.
