Jimmy Garoppolo’s demeanor after losing rubbed former 49er tight end Brent Jones the wrong way.
On Sunday, Jimmy G had a pretty terrible game in the team’s loss against the Broncos.

During an appearance on KNBR with Tolbert & Copes, Jones ripped into Garoppolo for smiling after the game.
“I’ve got to say, and I don’t think I’ve ever said this before, after you played horrible and you’re the reason your team lost the game, you do not smile and go glad-handing the other team after the game,” Jones said. “I’ve never seen that from any quarterback ever, that has ever been any good.
“Steve Young? No way. Joe Montana? Hell no. Brett Favre? No chance in heck. You think Russell Wilson is laughing after he throws a pick, steps out of the end zone for a safety and fumbles a ball and plays horrible and his team’s 1-2 and the reason they lost the game? It almost looked like he didn’t even care. It was so frustrating, and maybe I was just mad because the game was so ugly.
“If that’s me, I’m running for the locker room. I am not smiling, I am not talking to anybody for a week if you play like that. I just don’t get his disposition, but that was really frustrating. Icing on the cake.”

Jones says he just wants to see a little emotion from Jimmy G instead of ” sitting there posing” on the sidelines.
“I want to see Jimmy grabbing a couple receivers and talking to them, I want to see him patting his linemen on the shoulder and saying ‘I need some time,’ ” Jones said.
“I always just see him sitting there posing and nobody is taking GQ pics on the sideline. I want to see some emotion, I want to see some quarterbacking, but they always just show him sitting there looking stoic, posing. I wanna see some messed up hair, how about that?
