Jimmy G ran out of the endzone when attempting a pass 😂

While speaking to the media explained that it was a “longer developing play” and he was trying to buy some time.
“I was just running the play, trying to buy some time for it,” said Garoppolo “It was a longer developing play. Tough situation that whole thing.”
Niners head coach Kyle Shanahan took the blame for how the play turned out.
“That was a tough situation I put him in — that unblocked guy coming,” Shanahan said. “I wish we would have had time for the big play and could have ditched it. But that was a tough situation I put him in.”
