Jimmy Garoppolo praises ‘class act’ Patrick Mahomes, who reached out after ACL injury

  Jimmy Garoppolo praises ‘class act’ Patrick Mahomes, who reached out after ACL injury Mahomes is more than just a talented athlete. He’s already one of the best leaders in the NFL today and his teammates would absolutely run through a brick wall for him. And at this point, as long as he’s not facing the Chiefs, it seems Garoppolo might join them.

This morning on Pro Football, talk Mike Florio suggested that the 49 ers should hit KC QB Patrick Mahomes illegally to injure him and knock him out of the game. In this day in age, where the NFL is trying to take steps to limit injuries, there is no place for even the suggestion of intentionally hurting

Leading up to the NFC Championship Game between the 49 ers and Green Bay Packers, NBC Sports NFL analyst Mike Florio was steadfast in his choice to pick the Green and Gold, citing San Francisco quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo's inexperience in the postseason.

Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has been absolutely ridiculous thus far in the playoffs and all of Kansas City is hoping that he can continue that type of play when they face the 49ers in Super Bowl 54.

How should a defense try to slow him down? Your guess is as good as mine, because right now it looks like he can't be stopped.

But Mike Florio, the owner/founder of ProFootball Talk, offered his thoughts on how to defend Mahomes and he took it to a pretty careless level. While talking with Peter King, Florio suggested the 49ers "send a message" with some late hits either while he's near the sideline are already in his slide.

  Coco Gauff gave a delightful post-match interview after Australian Open upset of Naomi Osaka "Honestly, like, what is my life?"She defeated third-seeded Naomi Osaka in the third round in straight sets. Osaka, you'll recall, invited Gauff up to join her for the post-match interview after she took down Gauff at the 2019 U.S. Open, an incredibly classy moment for the ages.

Do you think the 49 ers should sign Maclin? Why or why not? That means Alex Smith will likely be cut next year. Hence the giant draft move to get Mahomes this year. With 63 mil in cap space, the Niners should try to sign him, because he was let go because of cap concerns, not playing ability.

Patrick Mahomes can become the first player ever to win MVP and the Super Bowl before the age of Patrick Mahomes ran for a touchdown that Derrick Henry would have been proud of, rushing 27 Lamar Jackson has garnered a lot of attention this season and rightly so. He should be the MVP of

For real.

Florio started off by saying, "I want to be careful here, because I'm not suggesting they try to knock him out of the game. That's not what I'm saying."

That is just rich, because he then immediately went to being the opposite of careful:

At a certain point you trade the risk of 15 yards if you can send a message. And football is still a physical, violent game. If you can hit him - even if it's close to sideline, even if he's started his slide - when the championship is riding on it I think it's a different analysis. And yeah, we may give up 15 yards or half the distance to the goal line. I mean, that's the thing Peter, if somebody had blown up Patrick Mahomes inside the 5, OK, it goes from the 4 to the 2, big deal. So again, I'm not saying that should be part of the deliberate effort but the Super Bowl is riding on it. And if this guy's going to think he can just run through the defense without any physical consquence, they need to dispel him of that notion the first time he tries.

On Mahomes’ running, more words and context

  On Mahomes’ running, more words and context Mike Florio elaborates on his Patrick Mahomes comment.On Friday morning, I thought I’d said all I needed to say about last week’s comments arising from the failure of the Titans to tackle Patrick Mahomes on his 27-yard, gamebreaking touchdown run and projecting how the 49ers may handle a similar situation with a Super Bowl championship on the line. On Friday afternoon, three former NFL players — in a TV segment that seemed to be designed to get them to say that my comments were inappropriate — actually agreed with what I said. And then some.

To say that Mike Florio 's agenda and thought process is rather tiresome would be an understatement. His latest article for Pro Football Talk states that His latest article for Pro Football Talk states that San Francisco 49 ers QB Colin Kaepernick, who is currently involved a poker match with the Niners

The 49 ers can say plenty of things, or nothing at all, about the arrest of linebacker Reuben Foster for domestic violence. One thing the 49 ers can't say is that they had no reason to believe Foster may do something he shouldn't have done. Posted by Mike Florio on February 13, 2018, 6:37 AM EST.

Hitting quarterbacks is fine and part of the game, but suggesting the 49ers take some late hits to "send a message" is pretty silly and dangerous.

Here's the video of Florio laying out this game plan:

He later tried to couch it with this:
