Article: Kyle Shanahan doesn’t see “any scenario” where Jimmy Garoppolo returns

Recommended Posts

Thoughts on him being a starter for us if we didn’t draft a QB? No trading draft picks, solid starter, and could use all of our draft picks to really build the team with picks in round one, two in round two, round three, two in round four and round 5. CMC was a huge Jimmy G Stan as well and really praised his work and leadership skills. For the record I want to draft a QB more than anything, but he would not be a bad option being that the cap is going up and we would not have to trade draft capital. 


The 49ers don’t know who their starting quarterback will be in 2023, but they know who it won’t be. Coach Kyle Shanahan ruled out Jimmy Garoppolo‘s return.

“No, I don’t see any scenario of that,” Shanahan said, via video from the team.

Garoppolo is scheduled for free agency in March. 

The 49ers were close to trading Garoppolo last offseason before the quarterback’s shoulder surgery brought talks to a grinding halt. Garoppolo ended up starting 10 games after Trey Lance was injured but saw his own season ended with a fractured foot in Week 13.

Rookie Brock Purdy finished up the year but tore the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) in his throwing elbow Sunday in the NFC Championship game. If Purdy does not undergo a full reconstruction (Tommy John surgery), then he is expected back in six months. 

“He’s continuing to go through that process [of second opinions],” 49ers General Manager John Lynch said. “I think the positive bit of news is that it seems to be consistent that the right approach is that one that’s about that six-month one. Now, everybody will also say you never know until you get in there. Every surgeon will tell you that on every surgery. . . . They’re continuing to work through that process, but we seem encouraged by the prognosis.”

If the 49ers have Purdy back in six months, along with a healthy Lance, they will not seek a veteran starter. 

“No, we’re content enough,” Shanahan said. “I know we have two starters on our team right now that I believe we can win with. So when you have that situation, you’re not that eager to go looking around.”

Panthers are done with retreads


Its clear we are developing our own home grown franchise QB

I know we desperately want to..as do most us fans but we have a ton of teams ahead of us needing a QB and it may not play out that way. I don’t think I would be upset if we used our 6 picks in the first 4 rounds to get WR, TE, LB, DE, DT, and or C/G help (for Corbett injury) to go along with Jimmy. I think we easily won the division with that combo of the rookie QB does not pan out

Battle between Jimmy G and Carr, whoever will play for less money. I'd rather Brissett for $5M at this point over one of these guys wanting 15+. Brissett already knows the system and isn't a diva, won't be drama if he's benched week 3 for the rookie

    • Dallas Turner is so good he’s the reason Drew Sanders had to go to Arkansas. Drew got hurt and missed a bunch of games. Dallas got his spot and wasn’t giving it up. Will be a top 10 pick next year. 
    • As a big nickel only--but he is too good to limit his play like that.
    • Replacing DJ Moore's production? You can reach into a hat and pick out any WR. 9 targets per game; 59.1% catch; 8.4 ypt; 41.1% 1st; 3.4% TD.   Ashton Dulin 63.5% catch; 8.7 ypt; 44.2% 1st; 5.8% TD In case you don't know the name, he is from Malone University and went undrafted. He has been the #4 WR for the Colts under Reich the last 2 seasons and Reich has had him on the Colts roster all 4 seasons he has been there. Toss him 9 targets a game and he outperforms DJ Moore. No need for money ball here. You can throw darts at a board and not worry about losing production. Not hard to find 4 WRs who can produce better than DJ Moore. You can draft 4 rookies in mid to late rounds in this draft and get better production from all of them with Cam Newton and his bum shoulder throwing to them. Moore has had 5 seasons to show he can be a playmaker, and Reich did not see it just like the entire fan base that kept hoping he was a legit #1. Moore will be a good #2 somewhere, but Thielen is a better and more reliable #2.
