From jokes to joy: Fans surprised by Blaine Gabbert & 49ers win

When the 49ers announced Blaine Gabbert was starting on Sunday, fans got an earful from the 49ers unfaithful. That all changed when the clock started to wind down. 

Gabbert thew a pair of second-quarter touchdown passes to tight end Garrett Celek, and the 49ers beat the Falcons, 17-16. 

The win had some football fans (even 49ers fans) admitting they were wrong on Twitter. Others just rolled with it and enjoyed the win:  

Some fans flat out apologized: 

Others could only answer with one word. Wow: 

While some 49ers fans were stunned, Falcons fans were beside themselves: 

The 49ers have a bye week this week and Coach Jim Tomsula still won't say who is starting the following week against the Seahawks.
