Enter Garoppolo, who probably won’t start against the Cardinals this week but might be ready to enter the lineup against the Giants on Nov. 12. With the 49ers on bye the following week, Garoppolo will likely be under center no later than Nov. 26, when the fourth-year quarterback will be up against the mighty Seahawks.
Dawgs quarterback Jake Fromm just lofted a beautiful 17-yard touchdown pass to Javon Wims, who absolutely Randy Moss’d poor Marco Wilson, to inflate Georgia’s blowout to 14-0. Not exactly the slant Gators defensive back Chauncey Gardner Jr. was looking for, either.
We haven’t even hit the 30-minute mark in this midday football bonanza and we have yet another touchdown! This time, it’s Wimbush, who brings Notre Dame level with NC State at 7-7 with a dart to Durham Smythe.
The Jaguars suddenly look like they’re a good quarterback away from being one of the best teams in football, given how effectively they can run the ball and hold up on defense
The Bills are clearing out space and may move on from Tyrod Taylor. The Browns and Jets will happily throw a dump truck of money at Cousins. (The Cardinals probably won’t be able to afford him.)
If Cousins hits the market and wants to get paid, he won’t lack for suitors. No team might be quite as appealing as the familiarity he sought with Shanahan, though, which strengthens Washington’s position. Sure, if Roethlisberger retires, Cousins would be a great replacement, but that’s hardly a lock. It’s entirely possible that the relationship between Cousins and this Washington administration has been destroyed to the point that Cousins might have no choice but to leave, but if Washington finally makes a real offer to its best quarterback in a generation, Cousins might be more apt to listen if Garoppolo is entrenched in San Francisco.
