from what he is He said.
On Friday, Garoppolo was asked if he says in the clip, “Your plays are bad, man.”
“I heard about that clip,” Garoppolo said. “Actually, yeah, we were talking about it yesterday. I don’t know, I can’t read lips. I’m sure I said much worse things on the pitch than that, so I’m glad they figured that out instead of something else, but I’m not sure what I was saying.” Exactly, but that’s what it is.”
Jimmy, I can’t lip read either. But I’m sure I can make an educated guess while reading my lips.
Garoppolo was then asked the broader question of whether there was friction between Garoppolo and coach Kyle Shanahan, or whether his comments were simply made “in the heat of battle.”
“You say a lot of things in the heat of battle that I hope people won’t hear, but no, Kyle and I are great,” Garoppolo said. “We really are. We’ve been through a lot of different kinds of seasons, and it’s no different, but we’re still at the beginning of the season, so we, as a team, have to find our identity. Obviously Kyle and I, just keep working and get on the same page more and more, But we’ve been through this before and it’s a long process.”
Sure enough, Garoppolo seems to have already said what he appears to have said. And he definitely seems to have said a lot when things aren’t going well.
