This is great news for the 49ers and their fans. While everyone wanted to believe Nick Mullens was a serviceable backup, he got cooked against the Eagles when he tossed two interceptions.
Luckily, that issue is behind the 49ers because Jimmy G is back to slinging it for San Francisco.
If Jimmy G is healthy and playing well, then we all know the 49ers can be the real deal. After all, they’re a season removed from playing in the Super Bowl.
There’s no doubt at all they have the tools to win with Jimmy G under center. However, if he’s off the field, as we witnessed against the Eagles, the 49ers are far from elite.
We’ll see how he bounces back, but this is a great update for the 49ers.
