John Lynch makes it clear Jimmy Garoppolo is 49ers’ 2021 starting QB


#For much of the 2020 season, there have been questions surrounding the 49ers’ future at quarterback.

#Jimmy #Garoppolo has been injured for the majority of the season, and was inconsistent when on the field. #With the 49ers missing the playoffs because of a number of severe injuries to key players, many wondered whether #San #Francisco will on from #Garoppolo this offseason and find a different signal-caller to lead the franchise.

#General manager #John #Lynch made it clear #Wednesday that #Garoppolo will be the 49ers’ QB1 next season.

“#Jimmy is our quarterback,” #Lynch told KNBR’s “#Tolbert, #Krueger and #Brooks” about who his #Week 1 starter for 2021 will be. “#We’re really excited about that. #He’s a heck of a scout-team quarterback these days. #Unfortunately, we can’t get him in the game, but he’s looking good on the scout team. #We’re excited to be working with him moving forward.”

#Lynch and coach #Kyle #Shanahan are in lockstep when it comes to discussing #Garoppolo’s future with the team.

“Yes, I do believe #Jimmy will be our quarterback next year,” #Shanahan told reporters #Monday.

“Look at #Jimmy’s record when he’s been here,” #Shanahan continued. “Jimmy, you can win with. #He’s proven that. #He’s proven he’s a starting quarterback in this league. #We had a couple of other guys who had opportunities this year who played at times like they have a chance to be starting quarterbacks, but they did play like backups overall.”

#While a number of names have been thrown about as potential replacements for #Garoppolo, tight end #George #Kittle wants him to return.

“I can’t say enough about the leader #Jimmy G is, and how his presence changes how the team is feeling, how the team is going about its business and how the team practices every day,” #Kittle told KNBR on #Tuesday. “#Jimmy G is our quarterback, and moving forward, he’s our quarterback, and that’s all I really have to say about it.

“I’m going to go with the guy that took us to a #Super #Bowl and played at a high level the entire year. #That’s my case for #Jimmy G, and I think it’s a decent one.”

The 49ers will have a number of important decisions to make this offseason as they look to return to #Super #Bowl contention in 2021.

#But it appears, at least for now, that #Garoppolo’s future isn’t one.
