'I respect every fan that we have' Instead of draft capital or a supplemental piece for a playoff push, head coach Kyle Shanahan and the 49ers have something much better: An insurance policy they tried to get rid of but that could now pay off in a massive way.| Bay Area News Group September 22, 2022 at 4:43 p.| Bay Area News Group September 21, 2022 at 12:34 p.| Bay Area News Group September 21, 2022 at 5:54 p.

“At first, it seemed unlucky just because of how good of a player Jimmy is and we for sure would have got something very valuable (in a trade) that would have helped our team,” Shanahan told reporters Wednesday.“It seemed unlucky because of the surgery and all the other quarterbacks that became available after that.SANTA CLARA — Two practices into his reprisal as the 49ers’ starting quarterback, Jimmy Garoppolo took to the media podium Thursday and covered a slew of topics.I felt like the luck wasn’t great.“He has an amazing release,” Broncos coach Nathaniel Hackett said Wednesday on a media conference call.That’s what led him to be able to come here to be our backup, which I felt then like we were just unbelievably fortunate the way it worked out.On entering Sunday’s win once Trey Lance sustained a fractured ankle: “I’ve never been a backup and had a starter get hurt like that.“Never thought we’d lose our quarterback for the year in the first quarter of Week 2, so after all that’s happened, now I feel very lucky that the trade didn’t happen a while ago.That’s the opinion of Dr.

All of it ended up working out, things happen for a reason and hopefully we’ll make the best of this going forward.Trey’s our brother.” Garoppolo reclaimed the 49ers’ starting job Sunday once Trey Lance sustained a fractured right ankle in the first quarter of an eventual 27-7, home-opening win over the Seattle Seahawks.” Speaking with reporters earlier this month in San Francisco, general manager John Lynch said around the NFL Combine this spring, there were “really serious talks” with two or three teams about Garoppolo and he thought a trade was sure to happen, but the shoulder operation changed that course.Garoppolo was excused from the beginning of training camp as the team continued to try to trade him.“I heard (Nick) Bosa’s presser (after Sunday’s win) and he worded it pretty well: There is a moment you feel your life is over and you feel, ‘I can never get back to where I was.Eventually, he agreed to a restructured contract to remain with the franchise through the season.The Broncos (1-1) made their own quarterback switch back in March, when they traded for Seattle star Russell Wilson, a week after Garoppolo had throwing-shoulder surgery to effectively shutter his trade market and vault him into psuedo-exile with the 49ers until committing last month to return on a revised contract.Now, suddenly, he’s back in the starting spot.You have to hit a point where it does pass and you mentally move on from that.And it’s the same thing with the ligaments.

Nothing new for the 30-year-old veteran, who has started 45 games for the 49ers and won 31 games in that span.He completed 13-of-21 passes for 154 yards and a touchdown in a 27-7 win over Seattle on Sunday and now makes his first start of the season in primetime.I’ve been around Trey a couple of years.” Hackett was the Jacksonville Jaguars’ offensive coordinator when they traveled to Levi’s Stadium and Garoppolo led the 49ers to a 44-33 win in the penultimate start of his 5-0 December debut.“He’s played in a lot of big games and been very successful,” Broncos head coach Nathaniel Hackett said this week.“Going all the way back to 2017 when I was at Jacksonville, I remember going against him there.He’ll be alright..” Among those “really happy” to see Garoppolo’s return is Bucs’ quarterback Tom Brady, who Garoppolo backed up his first 3 1/2 seasons in the NFL with the New England Patriots.But for performing at a premiere level in the NFL, it’s going to take time.

.Whatever you can do mentally..So he’s a really good football player, gets the ball out quick.” 2.“So I was really happy for Jimmy to go in there and do a great job (Sunday).… Jimmy now brings that drop-back mentality that he’s always had and we’ve always seen.It’s really good.There’s a lot that go with that, obviously, but I love doing that stuff.Raiders quarterback Derek Carr broke his right fibula on Christmas Eve in 2016 against the Colts at the Coliseum and was ready for Week 1 in 2017.

They match everything up with the play-pass, with the outside zone, the inside zone.He’s playing with house money in my opinion.” Denver defensive coordinator Ejiro Evero knows Garroppolo well, having spent the past five seasons on the Los Angeles Rams’ defensive staff.When you get that with offensive skills and a quarterback, it makes for a tough offense.In that span, the Rams and the 49ers faced off 11 times.“He’s just a very good thrower,” Evero said of Garroppolo.Kyle called plays and I wouldn’t know exactly how to read it, but you figured it out as you went.Neal ElAttrache, has pronounced the 49ers’ quarterback fully healthy after a March 8 surgery “he absolutely needed to have done.“Throws the ball over the middle, great arm talent, gets it off fast.Carr and Mariota both ended up going through the offseason with their respective teams, and each was ready play when the 2017 opened.

He’s a good player.” On if that freedom will continue this season: “I don’t know.” “Jimmy does a really good job of controlling the offense,” said Denver inside linebacker Jonas Griffith, who spent time with the 49ers after signing as an undrafted free agent in 2020 and eventually being traded to Denver just before the 2021 season.His range of motion is there.“He just does a really good job of getting the right guys the ball.We’ll see that as we go forward.”.
