JImmy Garoppolo and Cooper Rush calmed the doubts around them during a weekend in which they were the unexpected protagonists.
Six months ago, Garoppolo was looking for a new horizon away from San Francisco, where he was sentenced that he would not be a starter due to the irruption of Trey Lance; while Rush was assumed as a mere replacement for the incumbent billionaire Dak Prescott with Dallas.
The path of other people’s injuries arranged for both to assume a leading role. Rush was the first to go into retirement, at the end of the first week, after an ailment that will keep Prescott away from the gridiron for several weeks.
The red-haired Dallas quarterback had the controls to himself on Sunday to appear solvent by throwing a touchdown pass for 235 yards in a home win over the defending AFC champion Bengals.
Garoppolo came off the bench to replace Lance.
A significant percentage of the Cowboys’ hopes for what happens this season rests on what Rush can accomplish as Prescott returns to the field, about halfway through the season.
For the 49’s there is no more mystery. They’ll go the rest of the way with the quarterback who was shown the exit door once they publicly announced that Lance would be his starting bet.
Garoppolo threw his first passes of the season after Lance suffered a right ankle injury that will sideline him for the year. Jimmy G also fulfilled the task by throwing a TD and not making any mistakes in the 49’s victory.
