    after defeating the jaguars Garoppolomania has reached epic proportions in SF. i found a couple of interesting articles.
    How new 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo learned to throw like Tom Brady
    By the time he began teaching Jimmy Garoppolo how to throw a football, when Garoppolo was in high school, the personal quarterback coach had better technology at his disposal. Christensen could pop in footage of Tom Brady’s rapid-fire release and perfect footwork and say, essentially, this is how it’s done.

    “And so that’s how I trained him, was with Tom Brady film,” Christensen said by phone Monday. “It was really eerie, of course, when (Garoppolo) became Tom’s teammate.”

    Jeff Christensen will see pupil's first start for 49ers, explains why his throwing motion has helped lead him here
    “Jimmy only knows one way of doing it,” Christensen said. “When he started getting harassed in the pocket, he deviates back to normal. He gets chased around and banged around a bit, he will get better as a thrower.

    “Ninety-five out of a hundred guys will start overstriding. But Jim goes back to the right way of doing it. He’s the only guy I’ve ever coached who does that.”
    that is what i meant by having an intangible killer instinct. the more pressure you put on these types of QB's in the pocket, the calmer they get. i think Jimmy's QB rating during a blitz is at it's highest around 120. so the 49ers are getting someone a lot closer to TB than Giovanni Carmazzi. and you could say SF is getting a second chance to draft TB.

    it was wrong for the patriots to have been holding onto Jimmy G for 4 years and depriving the NFL of Jimmy Garoppolos greatness. it was wrong for other teams not to have drafted him instead. it was wrong for other teams to allow another team to be able to roster 2 FQB's. and it was wrong for other teams to have not traded for Jimmy sooner.

    but i am glad that we kept a 40 year old TB instead of a 26 year old Jimmy or the next Steve Young or Aaron Rogers. and those situations were a little different. Montana was injured for 2 years, but came back at a high level with KC, and Brett Favre kept deciding to retire and than not. i am glad that the patriots chose loyalty and the next few years of potential success instead of a longer future. when you look back at this, i don't think ppl will remember that. and the pats will start over now trying to find our next successor to TB.

    but you know it would've been funny if Tom Brady retired and everyone thought the nightmare was over, only to see Jimmy G step in and play for the pats for the next 10 years.

    ppl say that BB doesn't really like to develop players, and i think that is totally untrue. and sending Garoppolo to SF (Toms favorite team growing up) to his friend John Lynch is like he's playing the video game NFL Head Coach, and he's helping build up the league from within.

    every team should draft a QB every year in whatever round looking to hit the jackpot, and when a team does, you can't let them hold onto 2 franchise QB's for 4 years! other teams have to step in and trade for one of them. you can see how one lifts the rest of the team. the way SF's offensive line only gave up one sack to the jags because Garoppolo gets rid of the ball a tad quicker. it's little differences like that and everyone else gets better.

    Jimmy Garoppolo has a manly chin and perfect 5'oclock shadow. men want to be him, and women want to be with him. and he calls plays at the line of scrimmage like RUSSELL CROWE in GLADIATOR getting his cohorts to defend against carthaginian chariots.

    all good quarterbacks look like RUSSELL CROWE in GLADIATOR!



    ..yes he has small hands like donald trump..

    nully has a man crush.
    Bob- I'm not exactly sure it would ROCK as you say it Byron.. it may be cool, by typical text book descriptions. Your opinion of this is shallow and poorly constructed, but allow me to re-craft your initial thought into something tangable.

    i guess if you look, most teams have a FQB now. maybe just ARI and SF in the NFC. and in the AFC maybe BUF, MIA, NYJ, DEN.. and i guess Jimmy G said he didn't want to goto CLE because of the coaching uncertainty. also, suppose if CLE hired McDaniels as HC. kind of weird 3 of the teams are in the same division as NE.

    My buddy today said the Niners may be one of the top 10 teams in football right now, and he’s probably not off.

    Yeah, i bet that the NFC playoff teams are glad they don't have to face the 49ers this year.

    I can see the NFC West being a SF-LAR battle for a few years. Arizona needs a major rebuild, and Seattle is expected to have a lot of cap casualties in the near future (plus they have shown no aptitude in fixing their horrid O-Line).
