Is there any in-state HC/QB combination you would prefer over Shanahan & Garoppolo?

USA Today NFL columnist Jarrett Bell says he would still choose the likes of Gruden and Carr over Shanahan and Garoppolo

Despite it being way too early to tell, it’s still fun to entertain discussions like this.

Recently KNBR had USA Today NFL columnist Jarrett Bell on to talk about all things training camp-related - towards the end of the interview, though, he was confronted with a question of which head coach/quarterback duo he would prefer: Los Angeles’ Sean McVay and Jared Goff or the 49ers’ Kyle Shanahan and Jimmy Garoppolo.

The funny thing is before the question was even fully asked, Bell went with the Oakland Raiders’ Jon Gruden and Derek Carr. He said he still loves what Garoppolo and Shanahan have, but in both instances, would still choose the setups that both Los Angeles and Oakland have. It’s a short segment but the entire interview can be heard at this link here.

It’s obviously too early to make solid arguments here but, biases aside, what do you think? If you can’t see the poll below, click here.
