The San Francisco 49ers took the NFL by surprise in 2019. After going just 4-12 in 2018, the team rebounded in a major way, winning 13 games are earning the No. 1 seed in the NFC. With a win over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, the 49ers would be Super Bowl bound. It would make one heck of a Cinderella story.

Garoppolo pancakes Vikings LB Barr

  Garoppolo pancakes Vikings LB Barr Here is a thing that happened during the second quarter of the 49ers-Vikings divisional playoff game. 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo handed the ball to fullback Kyle Juszczyk running right. Juszcyzk then flipped it to wide receiver Deebo Samuel coming back left. The only player in front of Samuel was Garoppolo, who was in front of Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr. That’s usually a not favorable matchup for the 49ers, but it somehow went their way this time.

A blessing in disguise Something seemingly bad, but is a blessing ! Now how that be ? Alright, here is a story that clearly shows how something that seems

It didn’t have to be that way, of course. The 49ers could have rose to prominence a year earlier, but the team lost quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to a season-ending ACL injury in Week 3. That injury may have robbed 49ers fans of another dominant season.

But Garoppolo doesn’t see it that way. Considering how well things have gone this season, the 28-year-old quarterback views his torn ACL as a “blessing in disguise,” according to NFL.com.

"Things have a way of working out," Garoppolo said Wednesday. "I always told myself it was a blessing in disguise, the ACL.

"We got (Nick) Bosa out of it. That's a pretty good trade-off, I guess. But yeah, things have a way of working out I guess. This ride is crazy."

He makes some compelling points. While the team struggled in 2018, it wasn’t for nothing. The 49ers earned the No. 2 pick in the draft, and selected standout pass rusher Nick Bosa. The 22-year-old Bosa has played like a star during his rookie season, racking up 9 sacks. He’s a significant reason the 49ers’ defense has taken a major step forward in 2019.

Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo left Sunday’s game against the Chiefs in the fourth quarter after his left knee appeared to buckle at the end of a downfield Coach Kyle Shanahan said afterward that the team is concerned Garropolo tore his ACL . “Any time you lose your starting quarterback, it is a big

49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo tore his ACL in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs and will miss the remainder of the season, the team announced.

On top of that, Garoppolo finally stayed healthy. He played more than 6 games for the first time in his career and excelled, putting up 27 touchdowns against 13 interceptions.

Given all that, it’s fair to say things have worked out Garoppolo and the 49ers thus far. Based on how the next few weeks go, Garoppolo could have even more blessings to count.

Winning the Super Bowl a year after overcoming a catastrophic injury would be quite the turnaround.

Jimmy Garoppolo heard from an old friend ahead of the Super Bowl — some guy named Tom Brady. “Tom shot me a text, good luck and everything like that,” Garoppolo said Monday night on NFL Network. “Go handle business. It wasn’t too complicated. Just go win.” Garoppolo, of course, served as Brady’s backup with the New England Patriots before taking over as starting quarterback of the 49ers in 2017. Garoppolo earned two Super Bowl rings with the Patriots, even if he mostly watched Brady.Now, with Garoppolo, the 49ers are 15-3 this season and preparing to face the Chiefs on Sunday in Super Bowl LIV in Miami.
