Jimmy Garoppolo has been the talk of the NFL since he took over at quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, going 4-0 and even garning some praise from the defenses he’s been shredding.
Garoppolo threw for 242 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday’s 44-38 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. The former New England Patriots signal-caller made a number of high-level throws, and he even added a rushing touchdown against one of the NFL’s top defenses.
And Jaguars star defensive end Calais Campbell took notice, giving a glowing review of Garoppolo on Thursday via Twitter.
Campbell is a three-time Pro Bowler who has tallied 14.5 sacks and 44 tackles for Jacksonville this season, so he knows a good field general when he sees one.
Garoppolo has been brilliant in a little over four games for San Francisco, and he appears primed for an even bigger 2018.
