    Seems Richard Sherman thought highly of Garoppolo.

    Per Eric Branch: "Richard Sherman on how presence of Jimmy Garoppolo influenced his decision: "That had a huge part in it.""

    Full quote from Cam Inman:

    "That had a huge part. The way he played down the stretch was inspiring, it was incredible. Sometimes quarterbacks can get hot and the next year fall of the face of the Earth and not hear from them again. I saw poise, leadership, respect."

    I'm guessing the "fall off the earth" comment was about his success in New England in 2015 followed up by him doing it again in 2017.

    So Sherm is supposed to say the QB on his new team sucks???

    Which is easier to believe? Countless NFL players and analysts are all wrong and Sherman is lying, or the statistical reality, eye test, and testimony of NFL players and analysts are correct about Garoppolo?






    And as I painstakingly showed here, the Kaepernick comparison is just flawed.

    That seems odd though, Garoppolo really only has had short stints of success. He had less than 100 passes with NE, it has very little weight. I am not discrediting his work last season, he looked good. Certainly reason for hope. He absolutely could fall off a cliff in his first full season, however.

    It might be a small sample size, but I mean, it's hard to deny this:

    Since I have to compile the stats myself, it won't be as extensive. However, the change from Alex Smith to Kaepernick wasn't nearly as dramatic. And even though Alex Smith is a quality QB, it still shows that the comparison to Kaepernick just isn't very valid. Kaepernick didn't really elevate the team all that much, not the way Jimmy G did.

    Points per game Alex Smith: 26.53 (note: this is more exact that most websites, because I actually calculated Alex Smith's exact number of games [rounded to the nearest hundredth of a quarter] before he was replaced by Kap 19 seconds past midway through the 2nd quarter, which means he played exactly 0.3865 of the game)

    Points per game Kap: 29.02 (including playoffs and 0.6135 of the first Rams game)






    Passing yards per game Alex: 226.76

    Passing yards per game Kap: 228.01 (including playoffs)





    Rushing yards per game Alex: 189.94 (including the 54 yards rushing gained before Alex went out)

    Rushing yards per game Kap: 164.1 Believe it or not this is accurate! This was very surprising to me, so I double checked the numbers. Looking closer you can see why. In 7.3865 games, the Alex Smith 49ers went over 150 rushing yards 4 times, for more than 54% of their games, while with Kaepernick they went over 150 4 out of 10.6135 games for less than 37% of the time. Very surprising.



    I could go on, but the point is Kaepernick made the offense a little better in most categories in 2012, while Jimmy G took an offense at the bottom of the league and made it one of the best in the league.


    That is very, very hard to ignore, regardless of sample size, and it is a FAR greater impact than Kaepernick had in 2012.
