The bright spot for the San Francisco 49ers in their Saturday preaseason game against the Houston Texans was Jimmy Garoppolo. We’ll be breaking down each of his snaps in a separate post, but here’s some nice film breakdown of the money plays. NFL Network analyst Brian Baldinger got ahold of some Jimmy G film from Saturday and breaks down the coverages, and that touchdown pass to Trent Taylor that I didn’t realize was so on-point at the time.
Baldinger also breaks down the second series, most notably the Dante Pettis pass that resulted in an interception. Like Shanahan and myself, Baldinger believes this pick is more on Pettis and less on Garoppolo.
Considering that Baldinger played in the league for a number of years and has made a career on NFL Network doing analysis, it’s definitely the most insightful thing we’re going to find today.
