Sometimes, something is so bad, it’s actually impressive. 49ers Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo knows all about this.
During a Wednesday practice, Garoppolo threw five straight interceptions. Not one, not two, not three, and not even four. Five. There comes a point where you just have to throw up the white flag of defeat.
49ers fans are hoping Jimmy Garoppolo can be their Quarterback of the future. Hopefully, this isn’t an indication of things to come.
Head Coach Kyle Shanahan spoke to reporters at the end of practice.
“He threw it to the wrong team five plays in a row,” Shanahan told reporters. “I was a defensive coach today, so I was pumped. But no, the defense did great today and obviously he struggled.
“You hope to never have a day like that, but I don’t think it’s never not happened to anyone. When you do that, you hope you can practice long enough and give him a chance to play out of it and use it as an opportunity that hopefully you can do in a game. Hopefully you don’t have five in the game, but you can play yourself out of two in a row or something like that.”
On the bright side, Shanahan was able to laugh it off a little bit, but he has to be concerned.
Here’s hoping Jimmy G looks better in Preseason action.
“I expect him to definitely play in two and three,” Shanahan said. “But, nothing’s mapped out and set in stone yet. We kind of take it day by day with that, but that’s something you’re always thinking about. Definitely planning on going in two and three.”
It certainly can’t get worse from here on out. The beauty of being so low is the only way to go is up.
