Tom Brady Reacts To Jimmy Garoppolo’s Win After Trey Lance Injury ‘I Was Really Happy For Jimmy’

Jimmy Garoppolo has taken over as the San Francisco 49ers starting quarterback after Trey Lance suffered a season-ending injury during the team’s victory over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.

Garoppolo’s former teammate Tom Brady reacted to the Niners win on Monday during the latest episode of his podcast.

Brady said that he was “very sorry” for Lance but was happy to see his old friend Jimmy G succeed after everything that he’s gone through.

“[I’m] obviously very sorry for Trey,” Brady said “And I’ve followed that all offseason with Jimmy, you know, kind of in his rehab and I’ve known Jimmy so well. I’ve known Jimmy since he was a rookie and Jimmy and I have been friends a long time. And just seeing him, how he’s handled kind of his own adversity, is really gonna prepare him for what’s ahead. It’s interesting in the NFL, you know, when one door closes I think another one opens.”

“I think Jimmy and everyone was set on him being somewhere else. And the reality is they found a place where they could agree on something that worked for both parties and sure enough the first game at it, Jimmy’s out there playing with Trey getting injured. And as tough as it is for Trey to get injured, Jimmy steps in there and does a great job. So I think everyone is probably pretty happy with how things turned out from Jimmy’s standpoint. Obviously not with Trey and the injury. But things have a crazy way of working out. … You never know when that opportunity’s gonna present itself and when you get it, you gotta go out and take advantage of it. So I was really happy for Jimmy to go in there and do a great job yesterday.”

Garoppolo and Brady will face each other later this year on December 11 when the Buccaneers make their way to Levi’s Stadium for a Week 14 matchup.
