San Francisco 49ers name Jimmy Garoppolo starting QB

His time is now Kyle Shanahan names Jimmy Garoppolo the 49ers starting QB

San Francisco 49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo (10) runs with the ball against Seattle Seahawks in the fourth quarter of their National Football League game at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif. on Sunday, Nov. 26, 2017.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan met with the quarterbacks to inform them of the change, and is expected to address the decision with reporters on Wednesday.

The Niners acquired Garoppolo on October 31 from New England for a 2018 second-round pick to be the franchise's long-term quarterback.

Garoppolo played the last 1:07 during last Sunday's loss to the Seattle Seahawks after C.J. After sitting for two games and almost all of a third, Tom Brady's ex-backup briefly entered the 49ers' loss to the Seahawks on Sunday, throwing a touchdown pass to Louis Murphy as time expired.




"I think we brought him here because we want him to being the quarterback of the future", Shanahan said when Garoppolo was introduced.

Beathard was injured in Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks, which pressed Garoppolo into brief duty.

None of his 96 career passes have been intercepted. Beathard threw three touchdown passes compared to five interceptions in his five starts, during which the Niners went 1-4. Hoyer was released when the Garoppolo trade became official and wound up switching spots, going to New England to serve as Brady's backup. He finished with four touchdowns, six interceptions, and a quarterback rating of 69.2.

Barring injury, it's likely Garoppolo starts the final give games of the season. It is unclear whether Beathard's injuries had anything to do with Shanahan's decision.
