Revisiting the Jimmy Garoppolo trade: 49ers' big win gets even bigger after Tom Brady moves on from Patriots

By xa1
  • Night net 49ers Patriots American Football 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo saw his rookie season with the Patriots end with him getting his first Super Bowl ring as a backup to Tom Brady. If someone had said then that five years later, Garoppolo would be playing in his first Super Bowl as a starting QB, everyone would have assumed it would be for New England, succeeding Brady.Instead, in a serendipitous twist, at the exact time when Brady's time with the Patriots was ending, it was the 49ers who reaped the benefits of Garoppolo's winning play with a conference title. San Francisco had multiple chances to go in a different direction at quarterback. New England could have either kept Garoppolo stashed for Bill Belichick or found another trade partner.Let's revisit the events that led to the 49ers acquiring Garoppolo for a 2018 second-round draft pick on Halloween 2017 and the fallout of the trade that pushed the team to play for a champonship only two-plus years later.

He was pitching his way into history.Verlander did not throw the third no-hitter in postseason history, and the third no-hitter of his career, on Thursday night -- Yoenis Cespedes broke up that bid with a single with two outs in the seventh inning -- but with eight innings of two-hit ball in the Detroit Tigers' 3-0 victory to win the decisive Game 5 of the American League division series, Verlander furthered his reputation as the money pitcher of his generation. -- Box | Play by play | ALCS schedule | Near no-hitter | Sox SS coming of ageIt has taken some time. In his first eight career playoff starts, Verlander was 3-3 with a 5.57 ERA. In his last six, including two winner-take-all games on the road in Oakland, the righthander has gone 4-1 with a 1.45 ERA and 50 strikeouts in 43.1 innings. The one loss that Verlander suffered was in last year's World Series, where he is 0-3 in his career, having also lost two games in 2006. That is the one place, and it is a big one, where Verlander still has work to do to cement his reputation. Getting back there this year will require the Tigers knocking off the Boston Red Sox and their juggernaut lineup in the American League Championship Series. But it is thanks to Verlander that the Tigers have that chance."That's the motivation I know we've been looking for, and that we've had all year," Verlander told TBS' David Aldridge on the field in Oaklan[......]
