On the SF 49ers podcast with Marko:
#1 Marko, talk about the shift in power dynamics now that 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is the starting quarterback.
#2 Trey Lance got only two series but was able to move the ball down field into the red zone on both opportunities only to have his ankle fractured in that second series. The two series did demonstrate his ability to move the ball down field and execute the playbook.
#3 Right now for the 49ers to get to the Super Bowl the 49ers will need Garoppolo to play above all NFL teams.
#4 What’s that got to be like for Garoppolo to almost get dealt and talk of it right up until the start of the regular season and now he’s the face of the team and pretty much the leader of the team after Lance’s injury.
#5 Denver is a very nosy place to play as Empower Field is like a 12th man. How much of an effort will it be for Garoppolo to get his voice heard over the Mile High crowd this Sunday.
