ESPN's Bomani Jones rips jubilantly from 49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo

For one delirium week, almost everyone 49ers The world – from fans and media to Actual players and employees – He was upset about Jimmy Garoppolo’s return as the team’s main midfielder. It took a miserable prime-time performance to remind everyone with their eyes: Oh, yeah, it’s Jimmy Garoppolo.

Bomani Jones, ESPN/HBO character and longtime skeptic of Garoppolo, Hopped on Bay Area Radio early Wednesday morning For something of a victory roll. He also had a useful correction as to why certain sections of the fan base were so excited about losing Trey Lance to a broken ankle.

When Bonta Hill of 95.7 The Game asked Jones why fans despised Lance, Jones had the answer that should have stared everyone in the faces.

“We’ve all been living in this world for a while, right?” Jones said. “There’s a reason Baltimore keeps the black quarterback behind Lamar Jackson: It calms the locals. It’s a thing, and it’s been a thing in the league for a very long time. You can’t rule it out when you start trying to understand what it is, and why people immediately come down to the dude. Usually, people are so excited about a young midfielder that they talk themselves about it.”

Mostly, though, Jones, Hill, and Joe Shasky had a healthy laugh at Garoppolo’s account. Male Jones The infamous Garoppolo intercepted and closed his eyes in the Super Bowl At least three times.

Hill and Shasky Jones asked about Kyle Shanahan’s crime, which seemed suspiciously old without Mike McDaniel running a running game.

“I don’t know if there was something wrong with the offense as much as your quarterback wasn’t good,” Jones replied. “I know people have a little bit of an emotional attachment to Jimmy Garoppolo which I find weird, but he’s not. And he wasn’t, and every time the world gives us that he’s not, people jump up and say ‘No, Jimmy’s a winner!’ That’s not how things work, Oh man, the man who closes his eyes and throws an objection at the Super Bowl – that’s not what winners do. The man who That runs out from the back of the end zone – That’s not what winners do.”

Jones was skeptical about the wording of the reports that some players were happy with Garoppolo’s return to the controls. “You have the quarterback, he’s the captain, you’ve been indoctrinated with the idea that the quarterback is the straw that makes the drink,” he said. “I have an impossible time to believe these guys, actual football players, looking at Jimmy and thinking ‘This guy is dope’. They can’t. As if they were playing against Jimmy, I can’t imagine how excited they were. The guy closed his eyes and objected. I know I said That three times, but how is that not the craziest thing I’ve ever seen?” (Indeed, he said it exactly three times).

Before the conversation moved to Steph Curry, Jones had another helpful reminder about the strange arc of Garoppolo’s career. “I can’t believe Bill Belichick was so sure this was the guy to take over,” he said. “I understand why Tom Brady is angry.”
