Colin Cowherd: Buy Jimmy Garoppolo Stock Early Before He Becomes a Star

Colin Cowherd: “Everyone tries to find that one stock before it becomes Amazon or Microsoft… For those of you doubting Jimmy Garoppolo ask yourself this: Do you think Bill Belichick knows more about football than you? Do you think Kyle Shanahan knows more about football than you? Belichick was going to replace Tom Brady with Jimmy Garoppolo, and Kyle Shanahan paid him $27 million a year with only five starts. There’s a reason a scout could predict Derek Jeter, there’s a reason music critics talked about The Beatles before they were The Beatles, and there’s a reason I told my friend in 1983 that a band in Ireland named 'U2' with only one album was going to make it big. Belichick and Shanahan committed to Garoppolo before the rest of us and that’s when I went all in on Jimmy G... Garoppolo is never going to be a stat monster or be on the ‘House of Highlights’ on Instagram, but his ‘numbers’ will be wins and fourth quarter performances. You have to trust people who you think maybe know a little bit more and Shanahan paid him $27 million and Belichick was going to replace Brady with a kid from Eastern Illinois drafted in the second round. That is why I like San Francisco Sunday, and why Jimmy G, not Patrick Mahomes could end up being the MVP.” (Full Video Above)

Listen to Colin Cowherd explain why he’s always been on the Jimmy Garoppolo bandwagon and why he believes the San Francisco 49ers signal-caller is one of the most underrated quarterbacks in the league.

Whether it was a baseball scout projecting a teenaged Derek Jeter to be a future Hall of Famer, or music critics tabbing a young Beatles group as the next great band of the era, Colin says you have to trust smart people predicting the next big thing.

For Colin, it’s no other than Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, who was literally going to move off the greatest quarterback of all time, Tom Brady, to make Garoppolo the heir apparent, and 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan gave $137 million to a guy with only a handful of starts.

Check out the video above as Colin wants to be the first one buying stock in Garoppolo’s standing as one of the best quarterbacks in the league, and says just because he may never have a 5,000 passing yard or 40 touchdown season, doesn’t mean he can’t be the winningest quarterback in the league.
