The early reviews on 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo have been nothing but sensational, as the team has won three straight and everyone in the Bay area is excited about the over 1000 yards he’s already thrown for in those three games.
NFL.com has a great piece today on Garoppolo and what he’s brought to the table already for the team, here’s what some of the 49ers players are saying about the quarterback.
Left tackle Joe Staley: “He is very calm, collected and focused. Not to say that wasn’t here before, but it definitely has a different aura around him. We are really excited about him. It is fun to block for him.”
WR Marquise Goodwin: “We practice those situations every week. We were already prepared for it. We knew what we were going to do. There was no panic. He took control of the huddle, and he knew exactly what we needed to do to set ourselves up to at least get in field goal position or get a touchdown. That’s exactly what happened.”
WR Trent Taylor: “That’s the great thing about Jimmy. He’s always confident and calm and, at the same time, locked-in and intense. He’s kind of the perfect balance of that. So it’s great to have a leader like him. He’s just a natural, natural leader, and he’s going to be a great leader for us for the years to come, for sure.”
FB Kyle Juszczyk: “It really has been incredible. He stopped in Day 1 and in his own way commanded respect. We all saw the way he was preparing himself and the way he went about his business. He’s been a phenomenal leader. He’s definitely already the leader of our offense and keeps everyone dialed in on the sideline and in the huddle.”
