The Seahawks have unintentionally helped end some notable quarterback careers in the last few years. Tony Romo. Robert Griffin III. Maybe even Colin Kaepernick. (How much better would Kaepernick’s career numbers be if he didn’t struggle against Seattle every time, including an opportunity to make back-to-back Super Bowls?) But it looks like in a couple of weeks they are going to kick off the career of the newest San Francisco QB.
Per FOX’s Jay Glazer, Jimmy Garoppolo will make his 49ers debut in Week 12 against the Seahawks:
The Niners traded a 2018 second round pick (likely to be in the 33-35 range) to the Patriots for Garoppolo just before the trade deadline. They did this in spite of the fact that Garoppolo only has 94 career attempts and will be a free agent in March. San Francisco plays the New York Giants this week, a rather significant game as far as a top-three pick goes next year since the Giants are 1-7. They then have a bye week before hosting Seattle and rolling out their new “franchise” QB.
The Seahawks are still a very stout, if a bit inconsistent, on defense though it will be the second game without Richard Sherman.
