A timeline of Jimmy Garoppolo’s career, from small college to trade from Patriots to 49ers

first_imgAdded Garoppolo when asked about the day he was traded: “When (Belichick) called me, there was really no beating around the bush. It was right to the point. He said he appreciated everything, and I said the same to him. ‘Thank you.’”I mean, the guy taught me so much about the pro game and the ins and outs of it. So I appreciate everything he did for me.”Lynch described the second-round pick he traded to New England as a “high” price, but he admitted it was “a reasonable cost” for the chance to land a potential franchise passer.Garoppolo proved to the 49ers he was exactly that as the QB led the team to victories in each of his five starts to close the 2017 season. With Garoppolo set to become a free agent after his fourth NFL season, Lynch was determined to sign his new QB to a long-term deal in the offseason.It came in the form of a five-year, $137.5 million contract extension, which at the time made him the NFL’s highest-paid player. Not a bad deal for a player who had started just seven NFL games.2018 knee injuryStrangely, the torn left ACL Garoppolo suffered in Week 3 of the 2018 season was a boon for the 49ers. It ruined their season; they went 4-12 as Nick Mullens and C.J. Beathard traded starts at QB with Garoppolo on the shelf. It also gave them the No. 2 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.With that selection, San Francisco snatched defensive end Nick Bosa to join a line that already featured four first-round picks. At the end of the season, fellow NFL players voted Bosa as Sporting News’ Rookie of the Year for his role in what has become a dominant defense.Unfortunately the film on #49ers WB Jimmy Garoppolo looks like a nonvonyact valgus injury to the left knee. Biggest concern is ACL tear. pic.twitter.com/X7NioOHsVT— DocFlynn (@jessdeede) September 23, 2018In an interview with Sporting News before this season, Garoppolo described the injury as “very tough” initially, mainly because he had to accept the fruitlessness of all the work he had put in during the offseason. He was thrilled, though, to be healthy in time for the entirety of San Francisco’s offseason program.Now he calls his injury a “blessing in disguise.””Things have a way of working out,” Garoppolo noted before the 49ers’ win over the Packers in the NFC championship game. “We got Bosa out of it. That’s a pretty good trade-off.”Supported with a knee brace, Garoppolo has played at full strength all season. Now the team is benefiting from what Lynch described as a “perfect mix” of QB and coach. Shanahan agreed, citing that Garoppolo appreciates when the coach is hard on him. It helps the QB focus.Lynch could not have seen this coming, either, but he’s not surprised.”I think his Midwest roots are really evident,” Lynch said. “The fact that he has a great family and that he probably was humbled by older brothers, put in his place a few times. He’s a joy to be around.”We’ve got a coach who’s extremely demanding and expects a high standard of play out of him, and Jimmy’s awesome at that. I think that’s where the linebacker in him helps. He’s not sensitive. He understands that Kyle’s sole purpose is to try to get the most out of him. Kyle can be very demanding in doing so, and some guys don’t have the personality for that. Jimmy almost gets better when Kyle’s chewing him out.”More Super Bowl 54 news by Sporting News• Full betting odds & prediction for 49ers vs. Chiefs• The 25 best Super Bowl commercials of all time, ranked• Super Bowl Roman numerals, explained: A guide to help decipher the NFL’s weird numbers game• Superb Owl Sunday 2020: The story about owls and Super Bowl 54 you didn’t know you wanted until now• Who is the fastest player in the NFL?

I just didn’t know.”MORE: How Jimmy Garoppolo gives 49ers best of Tom Brady and Joe MontanaNow he knows. Garoppolo, 28 and on the verge of completing his sixth NFL season, has the 49ers in the Super Bowl in his first full season as starter — the ascent was delayed by the knee injury that wiped out the majority of Garoppolo’s 2018 campaign.Lynch wasn’t completely caught off guard by his team’s success with Garoppolo, of course. Patriots coach Bill Belichick’s glowing endorsement of the QB during trade talks facilitated the deal and enhanced Lynch’s confidence. More concrete evidence of Garoppolo’s potential arrived soon after the trade when he led San Francisco to five straight wins to end the 2017 season.Really, with the exception of the knee injury, Garoppolo’s football path has provided nothing but reasons to believe he has always been capable of becoming the franchise QB he is now. Below are the notable checkpoints of that journey.Jimmy Garoppolo’s college career at Eastern IllinoisThe reason Garoppolo played college football at the FCS level is simple. A linebacker as a freshman and a sophomore, he didn’t play QB until his junior year at Rolling Meadows High School, located in the northwest Chicago suburb where he grew up. So he was not on the radar of FBS programs.Garoppolo chose to play at Eastern Illinois, located a couple of hundred miles south of Chicago in Charleston, Ill., over Illinois State and Montana State in part because liked the coaching staff’s up-front and honest recruiting tactics. It was looking like a poor choice as the Panthers went 2-9 in each of Garoppolo’s first two seasons before longtime coach Bob Spoo retired. EIU’s hiring of Dino Babers as its coach in 2012 not only turned around the program, but it altered the future of the then-junior QB.”His style of offense really changed our team as a whole and really accelerated my career,” Garoppolo told SN, also admitting he would not be where he is without the influence of Babers, now the head coach at Syracuse.Garoppolo went on to break all of EIU’s passing records, almost all of which were held by former Cowboys QB Tony Romo. Saints coach Sean Payton, who played at EIU in the 1980s, once held some all-time marks for the Panthers, as well. After his senior season, Garoppolo joined Romo as the school’s only Walter Payton Award winners, basically the Heisman Trophy of the FCS level.When the Patriots drafted Garoppolo in the second round in 2014, potentially as the eventual replacement for the greatest QB of all time, no Eastern Illinois player had ever been selected higher.That apparent succession plan in New England didn’t exactly work out.Patriots careerAs a rookie, Garoppolo helped the Patriots win Super Bowl 49 without playing a snap against the Seahawks. He played running back as a kid and linebacker in high school, and the athleticism required to play those positions also was required to play the part of Russell Wilson on the scout team as New England’s defense prepared to face the shifty Seattle passer.”My legs were tired, man,” Garoppolo recalled with a laugh. “Lotta running around. Being Russell, it was tough, but it was well worth it. Hopefully (I) gave them a good enough look. Malcolm (Butler) did the rest.”Garoppolo appeared in only 11 games through his first two NFL seasons, relieving Tom Brady only in garbage time of blowout wins. That changed when the absurd Deflategate saga ended with Brady’s four-game NFL suspension to begin the 2016 season. MORE: Watch the best ads before Super Bowl 54Garoppolo admitted he was nervous before his first NFL start, which came in Week 1 of that season against the Cardinals. But he embraced — and continues to embrace — the pregame butterflies. (That’ll be important when he makes his first Super Bowl start Sunday against the Chiefs.)”I get nervous before just about every game,” he said. “But I think being nervous and having a bit of an anxiety is a good thing, because if you don’t get nervous, it really doesn’t mean that much to you then. Those jitters and those emotions, you gotta harness them and use them to your advantage.”The approach evidently works. New England won its first two games of the 2016 season with Garoppolo as the starter, but he sprained his AC joint late in the Week 2 victory. He missed the next two games before Brady returned from his suspension.Garoppolo took a few more garbage-time snaps toward the end of the regular season, but he didn’t play in the postseason as the Patriots stormed through the AFC field and won Super Bowl 51 over the Falcons. Those random plays late in 2016 would be his last in a Patriots uniform.Trade from Patriots to 49ersA few months after New England traded Garoppolo to San Francisco for a second-round draft pick, ESPN published a report detailing a process that made Belichick “furious and demoralized.”Having spent a second-rounder on a QB he envisioned as Brady’s eventual replacement, Belichick reportedly pushed back against Patriots owner Robert Kraft’s desire to deal Garoppolo and stick with Brady as long as possible. Reports also indicated Belichick, after losing his battle against Kraft, wanted to send Garoppolo to an NFC team with which the QB could succeed — perhaps an effort to create an I-told-you-so situation, but also a favor for a player the coach liked. Hence the deal that was completed with just a second-rounder rather than at least a first.Lynch’s recollection of trade talks with the Patriots just before the 2017 deadline lines up with the idea that Belichick was indeed moving a player he would have liked to keep.”In our conversations with Bill Belichick,” the GM explained, “when I talked to him and when (49ers coach) Kyle (Shanahan) talked to him, (he said), ‘You’re going to love this kid. His teammates love him.’”Bill’s not prone to hyperbole. He doesn’t say things just to say them, so if he says something, he means it. That stuck with me.” (Getty Images) https://images.daznservices.com/di/library/sporting_news/ec/f1/jimmygaroppologetty0127ftr_1dn5gor96ep5410nmkm2hdnwvb.jpg?t=790342715&w=500&quality=80 (SN illustration) https://images.daznservices.com/di/library/sporting_news/5f/ae/garoppolo-brady-belichick-012920-ftr_9ky93vy8y1bb1rms1ycpr8vyp.jpg?t=-216531641&w=500&quality=80 • What is the Chiefs’ mascot?

CCJ orders Appeal Court to hear Blairmont Rice Investment case

first_imgAfter 5 yearsFive years after a notice of appeal was filed in the Appeal Court of Guyana, the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) has refused an application by the Blairmont Rice Investment Inc for special leave to appeal to the CCJ in its appeal against Kayman Sankar Company Ltd, Kayman Sankar Investment Ltd, and Beni Sankar.The Court of Appeal of Guyana was on Thursday ordered to notify the CCJ of the hearing date no later than December 21, 2017. The CCJ has determined that with the time which has elapsed, the substantive appeal “needs to be heard as expeditiously as possible.”According to the court’s determination, the dispute between the parties originated when “Blairmont entered into three agreements where the respondents sold them land, equipment and buildings in December 2006”. CCJ observed that Blairmont made an initial payment towards the purchase, and entered into possession. The court further explained it was agreed that the remaining amount would be paid in portions at half-yearly intervals.“There was a term in the agreements that the respondents had the right to repossess the properties if Blairmont failed to make the required payments. When it failed to make those payments, the respondents purported to terminate the agreements, and filed a claim in the High Court of Guyana on 4 April 2011 in order to obtain a declaration that they had terminated the agreements and to recover possession of the properties,” a section of a release by CCJ noted on Thursday.The CCJ also observed that in a motion filed in the Court of Appeal of Guyana on February 9, 2017, Blairmont, the applicant, alleged that it sought an order for the matter to be returned to the High Court of Guyana for retrial, because in its view, “the trial judge had failed to provide written reasons for his decisions before retiring from office”.According to the Caribbean Court, in its application, the company alleged that the Court of Appeal of Guyana “had refused its request, and instead ordered that the Record of Appeal be settled and that the appeal should proceed.In refusing the application for special leave, the CCJ ordered that the hearing to determine Blairmont’s substantive appeal was deemed fit for urgent hearing by Guyana’s Court of Appeal.”The CCJ further said it “rejected Blairmont’s application for special leave because they did not seek an order for retrial in the motion filed on 9 February 2017, but actually sought to progress Blairmont’s substantive appeal by having the Court of Appeal hear the appeal in the light of the availability of the pleadings, exhibits, affidavits, the trial judge’s notes of evidence, and his detailed order, despite the absence of any written reasons for his decision.”The applicant’s Notice of Appeal was filed on April 17, 2012 and the matter is yet to be concluded. The CCJ therefore awarded basic costs to the respondent. Since the appeal case was filed, Kayman Sankar passed away some three ago; Beni Sankar is his son.last_img read more

Motorists urged to use Vlissengen/Carifesta Avenue with caution

first_img…infrastructural works in progressCoordinator for the Public Infrastructure Minsitry’s Works Services Group, Geoffrey Vaughn is urging motorists to proceed with caution at the intersection of Vlissengen/Carifesta Avenue since infrastructural works are ongoing.Speaking with the Department of Public Information (DPI), Vaughn reminded that preliminary work for the construction of a roundabout at the Vlissingen and Carifesta Avenue junction was being executed at the time. The coordinator also emphasised that persons should always be cautious when proceeding along the junction.The Vlissingen Road / Carifesta Avenue intersection“Roundabouts don’t usually have traffic lights, but persons need to practice using the area with caution, if they don’t, then it will give you an idea of how people would utilise the roundabout when it is completed.”While the Public Infrastructure Ministry will consider engaging the relevant authorities to have the traffic lights functioning as per normal, Vaugh said his office will also recommence its campaign to sensitise road users on the ‘dos and don’t’s’ of manoeuvring the roundabout.Vaughn said “currently the area takes the shape of a roundabout, so the Ministry has to begin an early campaign to inform persons on how to use the area safely. Road users need to be aware that persons who enter the intersection should move first. Also, persons who wish to make a right turn, should approach the roundabout in the right lane, then signal right as they approach the roundabout and continue to signal right until they are ready to exit. Then, signal left before you exit the roundabout. These are things we want people to know.”Contracts for the roundabout are still out for tendering and will soon be awarded following which infrastructural work will commence. In the interim, the WSG Coordinator is asking pedestrians to be patient and use the area with caution.last_img read more

More contraband found at Lusignan Prison

first_imgAnother routine search at the Lusignan Prison on the East Coast of Demerara (ECD) on Saturday morning unearthed more contraband items.The two-hour exercise was conducted jointly by ranks from the Guyana Police Force and the Prison Service in Holding Bays One, Two and Three of the East Coast penitentiary.The following prohibited items were discovered during the search: 44 improvised weapons; 11 razor blades; 20 construction nails; six lighters; one pack bamboo; one smoking utensil; three cellphones; eight phone chargers; two cellphone batteries; one phone display; 40 Guyana dollars; and three bottles of wine.Saturday’s raid came on the heels of a similar exercise carried out on December 7 last at the same facility were a quantity of contraband items were found and seized. These include: four small plastic containing a quantity of cannabis; 10 lighters: four improvised weapons; 30 razor blades; nine needles; a pair of scissors; a piece of broken glass; two metal nails; three geometry set compasses; one metal spoon; two cellphone batteries; six cellphones; five earphones; seven chargers; five sim cards; two memory cards, and a quantity of wires.Contraband smuggling has long been a perennial problem within the prison system and this is compounded by the fact that both prison and Police Officers are facilitating the illegal trade, which is said to be a “big business”.While the authorities have been struggling to curb the illegal practice, there has been a breakthrough in the apparent network among rogue prison officers. In fact, only in October, four prison officers were arrested after they smuggled a bottle of rum and a pack of cigarettes into the Lusignan Prison the weekend prior. These officers were subsequently charged and interdicted from duty.In addition, another two ranks found themselves in hot waters following the discovery of illegal items at two separate prison facilities.In Berbice, 1032 grams of suspended marijuana and 39 packs of cigarettes was found in the New Amsterdam Prison and a prison officer had admitted to conspiring with inmates to hide the contradband that was thrown over the fence.Meanwhile, another prison officer at the Timehri penitentiary was taken into custody after he was implicated by an inmate regarding the presence of 584 grams of marijuana in the compound.Furthermore, five other prison officers were relieved of their duties back in July after they were fingered in an incident whereby a parcel containing cannabis had been thrown into the Lusignan Prison Holding Bay area.Director of Prisons (ag) Gladwin Samuels had disclosed in September that so far for the year, some 28 Prison officers have been dismissed; 11 for facilitating or directly smuggling contrabands into the prisons system. The Prisons Director added that there are 12 ranks currently interdicted from duty, nine of whom have been charged either departmentally or criminally for trafficking-related activities.last_img read more

President reiterates commitment to free education

first_imgPresident David Granger on Sunday reiterated his commitment to restoring free education in Guyana.The Head of State, who was accompanied by First Lady Sandra Granger, attended the Bicentenary Anniversary celebration of the Mission Chapel Congregational Church, New Amsterdam, East Berbice-Corentyne.President David Granger addressing the congregation of Mission Chapel in New Amsterdam, BerbicePresident Granger, in his address, told congregants that the church occupies an “exalted position of reverence in Guyanese history” noting that it played a phenomenal role in pioneering Christianity and community development at the dawn of Guyanese nationhood.He said the church holds a central place in the history of Christianity and education in Guyana. “This church was established as a ‘mother church’ for the expansion of congregationalism in Berbice. The church was in the forefront of the congregationalists’ efforts to provide religious teaching and general education to the population and, particularly, the non-European population of Berbice,” the President is quoted as saying by the Public Information and Press Services Unit of the Ministry of the Presidency.Guyana, the Head of State said, owes an immeasurable debt of gratitude to the congregational churches for pioneering education in the villages of this country. “Their exertions prepared Africans for Emancipation in 1838…Their efforts laid the foundationfor the expansion of universal public, primary education, which we all enjoy in our country today.”As such, President Granger said “no Guyanese child needs to pay for primary education because of the foundation created. As I said in Union Village (Number 53 Village Corentyne on August 1, 2019), in anticipation of revenues from our petroleum industry, education will be free not only at the primary level, or secondary level but also at the tertiary level.”Mission Chapel Congregational Church was designated a historic monument by the Government of Guyana in 1966. There are thirty-three churches and missions across the country.last_img read more
