Don’t look now, but the San Francisco 49ers are one of the best teams in the NFL. Sure, they have a brutal schedule to end the season, but an 8-0 start is nothing to laugh at. One of the biggest reasons for the perfect record is the play of quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and, needless to say, his confidence is at an all-time high.
After carving up the Arizona Cardinals defense for 317 yards and a career-high four touchdowns on Thursday Night Football, the 27-year-old signal caller had a postgame interview with Fox sideline reporter Erin Andrews. Everything went smooth, and then the 49ers quarterback decided to shoot his shot.
“8-0, how does that feel?” Andrews asked.
“Feels great, baby,” Garoppolo replied with a smile.
Yeah, that’s right, Jimmy G hit on Erin Andrews and made her blush so much that all she could say was “Happy Halloween” in return.
If the “baby” comment didn’t give it away, the look back and point while walking away sure did. The entire sequence was priceless, and the Niners quarterback sure didn’t care.
Social media sure had fun with it, too.
Being undefeated must be nice. Tom Brady and the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots are the only other team to feel this way. The NFC West might be stacked, but the 49ers are here for the long run.
Garoppolo, who played college football at Eastern Illinois, is at the top of his game right now. And with a Monday Night Football matchup with the Seattle Seahawks looming, there’s no doubt he’s enjoying the moment.
The interview with Erin Andrews is all the proof we needed. Jimmy G is really starting to hit legend status.
