Brett Favre thinks the 49ers are making a huge mistake with QB Jimmy Garoppolo

The San Francisco 49ers still have Jimmy Garoppolo, but they won’t play him. Eventually he will be traded or possibly cut because they decided to move forward with Trey Lance. Lance goes into an attack that has real winning potential now, so it’s a good chance for him to succeed.

Not everyone thinks this is a wise decision. Garoppolo took the 49ers to the Super Bowl in the 2019 season and last NFC Championship campaign. Legendary quarterback Brett Favre, who knows a thing or two about winning, thinks San Francisco is making a mistake.

Speaking to 33rdTeam, Favre thinks their former starter deserves to stay:

“My personal opinion, I would go with Jimmy Garoppolo. He’s not that flashy, not that flashy… And no offense to Trey Lance, but what Jimmy did was win and win, win, win again. Not flashy.”

He continued:

“So it’s not the glamorous choice, but my goodness, the guy won and put the 49ers in a position to compete for the Super Bowl year after year and deserve the right to keep playing.”

Favre believes Garoppolo has intangibles that cannot be easily replaced:

“There’s a huge upside with Trey, there’s no doubt about it. But Jimmy G has been a proven winner. And that’s often overlooked – is a guy a winner? And Jimmy Garoppolo is definitely a winner. “

In the end, the 49ers decided to move on and they undoubtedly know Garoppolo’s record. They intend to hand over the reins to Lance, despite what Favre or anyone else says.

Jimmy Garoppolo’s time with the 49ers is almost over. He’s still on the roster, but he won’t see any playing time unless something goes wrong with Lance.

San Francisco will face a decision very soon. If Garoppolo is not eliminated by the final roster deadline, they will have to pay him his $24.2 million salary for the season. They will have to exchange it, cut it or pay for it.

Surprisingly, there were very few quarterback injuries throughout training camp. Currently, no team is too desperate in this position. If that happens, the 49ers will more than likely be the first team they call.

The New York Giants and Seattle Seahawks have been heavily linked with Garoppolo in recent months. However, they are obviously playing the long game.

It will be interesting to see where Jimmy Garoppolo ends up in the 2022 NFL season.
