5-0 in his starts and ridiculously changed the team. they will be players next year. dude balled out in his starts last year. pretty sure he won't go Matt Flynn on them.

one of my issues with the enormous size of this contract is that there's a lack of history for this QB to have earned this. no doubt he's good, but his history of success is pretty darn small.

if he plays well enough to make this contract look like a bargain, good for him.

It was either sign him or franchise tag him....

 

Former NFL agent Joel Corry took a crack at projecting out the franchise tag numbers for 2018. He increased the salary cap from $167 million to $180 million, which would be consistent with recent cap growth. In doing so, it would result in a non-exclusive franchise tag value for quarterbacks of $23,555,000.

Even if the 49ers are ready to make a deal with Garoppolo, the quarterback will have some factors of his own to consider. If he signs the franchise tender, the money becomes fully guaranteed. If he does that and then the 49ers franchise him again next year, he would be due a raise of 120 percent, which would be a single year salary of $28,266,000. That is two years worth of salary totaling $51,821,000.

Did S.F. set an NFL record by going 5-0 after being 1-10?

Arizona is going to struggle in 2018 (sorry Nando), that's three strong teams now that they have to play twice a season.

I like jimmy g but the niners are being a little overhyped imo. 

Rams are solid but again they added some interesting personalities 

seattle is rebuilding IMO . They haven’t addressed the OL in almost 6 seasons?

arizona still brings back a solid defense and David Johnson. QB and OL will be key. I love the Rosen pick. I think he’ll beat out Bradford sooner than later

49ers are a little over hyped...I figure this year is an 8-8 year maybe 9-7...should be second in the NFC west.

they addressed some holes, defense should be better depending on Sherman and Foster.  If they can be on the field this year....we should be greatly improved.

I've done some simple math and projected the stats out for 5 years. The results reveal the following:

Garoppolo will be paid approximatley $1.23 per interception over the next five years if his salary is based on interceptions alone.
