How Jimmy G could help Tom Brady mount NFL comeback with 49ers

“I just think that’s what Brady is focused on. He’s been focused on it for two years,” Zolak said of Brady, a native of San Mateo, Calif., returning to the Bay Area to play for the 49ers. “They’ve got to deal Jimmy, and he knows that (Trey) Lance isn’t ready, and he knows that team is built to win now.

“I think Indy is a real sleeper team,” Sando said on KNBR Tuesday morning. “I think the Carson Wentz thing didn’t work out for them and I think they could move him, and maybe still get something for him. Garoppolo could make some sense, going to a team that’s already pretty good, that at its best has a good offensive line and might be able to support him with a pretty good defense. Remember he’s going to be part of this too and the [49ers] are going to try to take care of him. That’s the type of team.”

Branch: What’s best for Jimmy Garoppolo? Some unsolicited trading advice for the 49ers (paywall)

“You said playing for a team that’s committing to winning was your top priority. And that’s all the Steelers do. They haven’t had a losing season since 2003 and went 9-7-1 and reached the playoffs in 2021 despite starting arthritic, now-retired QB Ben Roethlisberger.”
