It’s great that C.J. Beathard was able to get a win last week against the Giants, but it is time to see what Jimmy Garoppolo can do.
The 49ers gave up a valuable draft pick to acquire him. And there won’t be a better time than next weekend to throw Garoppolo into the fire.
Both bookend tackles, Joe Staley and Trent Brown are back, and the 49ers have an extra week to prep the QB and the game plan for a matchup against the Seattle Seahawks, who will be without Richard Sherman for the remainder of the year.
In a perfect world, you would be able to give Garoppolo more time to get ready. But, because of the extra week of preparation, there isn’t going to be a better spot to get him his first start… And the season will be over in six weeks.
It’s time for the 49ers to find out what they acquired last month.
The future should start next Sunday.
