Tom Brady Very Impressed With Jimmy Garoppolo’s 4-0 Start

Jonathan Grant | December 26th, 2017

Tom Brady, who is arguably the greatest quarterback of all time, is very impressed with his former backup, Jimmy Garoppolo, who has won all four of his games starting for the San Francisco 49ers.

“He’s done a great job. You go in there and get the opportunity to play and win games, that’s what we’re all here for,” Brady said in his weekly interview on sports radio WEEI. “It was good to see, and good for them to beat Jacksonville [on Sunday]. That certainly helped us. I’m really happy for Jimmy. He’s worked really hard and it shows up when he goes out there and plays really well.”

Before Garoppolo was traded to the 49ers from the Patriots, they had only won one game which came over a very disappointing New York Giants team.

The 49ers have won four straight since Garoppolo arrived, the latter coming over the Jacksonville Jaguars who are emerging as Super Bowl contenders this year.

He went 21-of-30 passing, totaling 242 passing yards and two touchdowns on one of the best defenses in the league.

Asked how Garoppolo’s success reflects on the Patriots, Brady said: “I think it’s really a credit to him. You do what you can with the opportunities you get. I think it’s great for any player and anyone who has been in the Patriots’ system to watch how the coaches prepare the players. There is obviously a high standard and high expectations for us any time you take the field.

“Any time you’re in a winning environment, that definitely helps, and I think guys really enjoy that. You take what you can and try to use it in other places if that’s where you go. Like I said, I think what they’re doing is a credit to them. I don’t think anyone should take credit for what those guys have accomplished.”

While the 49ers seemed to have found their quarterback of the future, they are slowly dropping down lower in this year’s NFL draft.

Nonetheless, finding a consistent starting quarterback is the priority for ant NFL franchise and the 49ers look like that have found exactly that.
