49ers looking for new quarterback for this year after Garoppolo injury, guess who it will not be?
The San Francisco 49 ers had the nightmare every NFL team and fan fears happen Sunday. Their starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo went down with probably a season ending knee injury.
The 49 ers traded Garoppolo from the New England Patriots last year and Garoppolo led them to 7 straight wins resurrecting the once proud franchise. With Garoppolo down the social justice warriors began the drumbeat for Nike’s new spokesman Colin Kaepernick.
Kaepernick has not played for almost 2 years mostly because he sucks. But the social justice warriors would say it is because of his stance on protesting during the National Anthem.
Coach Kyle Shanahan said the 49 ers have had no internal discussions about the team’s former starting quarterback after discussing him last year as they searched for a solution to the position.
“I made that decision [to not pursue Kaepernick] because of the style of offense we wanted to go with,” Shanahan said, via Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area. “That’s kind of what I said last year. It’s the same situation now. I always look into what style of offense I want to do, what style of offense we’ve been doing for the last two years.
“When you start to get to these quarterbacks we’re talking about, C.J.’s our guy and we have Nick Mullens backing him up. When you get into a third or fourth guy, whoever that is, you’d like to bring in guys who you felt you didn’t have to change much of your offense for.”
The 49 ers will promote Nick Mullens from the practice squad to backup up C.J. Beathard. They will workout Tom Savage, Kellen Clemens, T.J. Yates and possibly Matt Moore.
Shanahan said the 49 ers asked Moore, but it was unclear whether he would participate.
Sooner or later the social justice warriors will give up on a team signing Kaepernick. There are new quarterbacks coming out every year and unless Jim Harbaugh leaves Michigan and can coach Kap again he will still suck. From the looks of it the 49ers do not have very good options. But at least they will have a sucky quarterback that doesn’t make an ass of himself.
