The Rams won’t play the 49ers until October 21, so it’s anybody’s guess what the records may be, but after a rough outing for quarterback Jimmy G against a very good Minnesota Vikings defense, you’d think one game was an indicator of all16.
For the record, Garoppolo was bad completing 15 passes on 33 attempts for 261 yards and a single touchdown.
It’s the three interceptions that everyone seized on to offer a social media verdict that he is effectively, a bust.
He’s not, at least not after one bad game against a team many are picking for another run at an NFC North title and possibly a Super Bowl. The Vikings are a solid team, and are clearly better than the Niners, right now.
But let’s not allow facts to enter into a good group pile on.
Odds are Garoppolo will perform better over the remaining 15 games than he did in Week 1. If you want to make the argument he’s come back to the pack after going 5-0 to begin his San Francisco career, I get that. But to render him overrated with a one game sample after the opening week of the season is a classic overreaction.
He lost a game to a team picked to be in the thick of a championship hunt…, ON THE ROAD!!!!
But hey, why let facts get in the way.
