Tuesday on 2 Pros and a Cup of Joe, Brady Quinn relives his radio-call of the Niners beating the Chargers on Sunday Night Football and the guys all agree San Francisco is getting healthy at the right time and ready to turn heads in the NFC Playoff race.

Jonas Knox: "I'm glad you pointed it out on the broadcast. This idea that because Jimmy Garoppolo didn't throw any touchdowns in that game, that they're just carrying Garoppolo. He's playing well. It's not like he's playing poorly and they're winning despite him... People have this built in knock against Jimmy Garoppolo and they just want to roll with that. I actually think considering what he came into this year having to deal with, Jimmy Garoppolo has played really good this year. Actually, he's played better this year than he did last year."
Brady Quinn: "Think about this. They've got three All-Pros in Deebo Samuel, Christian McCaffrey and George Kittle on that offense and it's not like they have a bunch of slouches outside of those three. They have a star studded offense and all you need is really a guy to go in there to facilitate and Jimmy Garoppolo can do that. So I think San Francisco is one of those teams that really has the potential of, not necessarily looking like a contender now, but at the end of it, maybe being the team that is knocking everyone off."
