Check out what Mike Silver said about Jimmy Garoppolo Monday on NFL Network:

SILVER: “Jimmy Garoppolo, you saw the touchdown. He also threw a pick-six. He had rough moments in the preseason. He’s coming back from the knee injury. Guys, keep an eye on this. Nick Mullens is Kyle Shanahan’s type of quarterback. He is almost a savant when it comes to understanding the offense. He really, really executes it in a way that Kyle Shanahan likes. If Jimmy Garoppolo struggles, or continues to struggle, and they’re either losing or he’s not playing well or both, I don’t think it’s that far-fetched that they could make a quarterback switch earlier than some people might imagine.”
Silver is the most connected journalist in football, so I trust this report. I also agree with the logic behind it. For months, I’ve said the gap between Garoppolo and Nick Mullens is smaller than most would think, if not completely imaginary.
What do you think of this report?
