It’s no secret that yesterday’s NFC Championship game was a complete dumpster fire for the San Francisco 49ers.
Quarterback Brock Purdy, who was already the third option at QB after Trey Lance and Jimmy Garoppolo went down with injury, got injured early in the game, and were forced to go with fourth string QB Josh Johnson…
Who also got hurt in the third quarter, and they were out of quarterbacks so running back Christian McCaffrey had to take snaps at QB the rest of the game, after a failed attempt to get Purdy back out there, despite the fact his UCL may or may not have been ripped to shreds.
The Philadelphia Eagles easily won 31-7, punching their ticket to the Super Bowl.
You would think that the Niners’ sideline would’ve been full of long, sad faces, and it was don’t get me wrong. But there was one player in particular who seemed a bit happy while they were down 31-7…
And it was no other than Jimmy Garoppolo.
Garoppolo was inactive still, as he continues to recover from a broken foot that he sustained in week 13.
The camera displayed him a few times on the sidelines, and he maintained a smile on his face the whole way.
Was my guy happy that they were getting blown out, and their season was about to end? Was he glad to see that Purdy wouldn’t be able to receive the recognition of winning a Super Bowl? Did he simply not give a damn?
Nah, I honestly doubt it was any of those. Jimmy G is a likeable personality in the sports world, but ya never really know.
Nevertheless, folks on Twitter couldn’t help but notice the smiles as well:
