    49ers land Jimmy Garoppolo........

    for their 2018 second-round draft pick. San Francisco gets a promising 25 year old QB to rebuild around and New England continues their pattern of stock piling draft picks.

    good move for all parties. The Niners better sign the guy though because he can be a free agent at the end of the year. Also likely takes SF out of the running for one of the QBs in the draft.

    i don't think Bill wanted to trade Garoppolo in the AFC. which is why Cleveland didn't get him. and then Cleveland thought they traded a 2nd and 3rd pick for the Cincinnati backup but were too busy celebrating that mistake to call it in to the commish in time to get it done.

    so the real loser in this trade is Cleveland. bring back coach Pettine! im serious

    Which is odd, because Cleveland is an automatic win for other teams playing them in the AFC at this point.

    it is odd. you'd think Cleveland would've offered a 2nd and 3rd for Jimmy instead of AJ McCarron. Late paperwork nixed Browns' AJ McCarron trade
    Maybe Belichick likes Garoppolo and thought since he was a good soldier being backup the past few years and waiting, he wanted him to be in a better situation, unlike Jamie Collins; who we could really use right now.

    i am going to miss Jimmy. at work i have this thing where i pretend to be a homer and during the night, every night, i find a way to say Garoppolo. ..pretending he's going to be the next GOT. i hope he does well in SF. i am not really a 9ers fan. i didn't want to be one. but i guess i am now.

    i have a bad track record predicting QB success. Garoppolo was a legit 2nd rd pick. i trust bill. i don't know why teams didn't offer a brinks truck for him. he's got that intangible killer instinct and winning thing like brady. his feet moves more than brady. but than everybody's feet does. but he was perfect for the patriots system. and looked good. and now we have to let him go because his contract is up.

    Belichick just does what he wants. i think Garoppolo was worth more than an early 2nd rd pick. i feel that we drafted him when we didn't really need him because we believed in him, when other teams should've instead. and we tied up that pick used for a few years for nothing. when other teams should've been banging down our door.

    49ers coach Kyle Shanahan expects contract-year QB Jimmy Garoppolo to be franchised in 2018.

    Advice: "The franchise tag made it an easier decision to trade for him. We’ve got six games left and we’re going to have next year. Quarterbacks are expensive. And that's not that big a deal to us." Garoppolo has yet to pass C.J. Beathard and is unproven outside of two career starts. He'll make $25 million if franchised — putting him behind only Matt Stafford and Derek Carr in base salary. The 49ers want to get Garoppolo acclimated before playing him, but are going to need to see what they have in him down the stretch.

    9er's fans react to winning 3 in a row and possibly obtaining a franchise QB.

    Benny Hill! Awesome nully!
    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.
