Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jeff Garcia hung up on a Bay Area radio station when pressed for his comments on ESPN’s Mina Kimes.
Jeff Garcia lost it when asked what happened between him and Mina Kimes.
The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback appeared on 95.7 The Game to discuss the upcoming NFC Championship game against the Los Angeles Rams. Of course, the former Pro Bowl flagger must have known he would be asked about his disparaging comments about ESPN football analyst while trying to defend current 49ers starter Jimmy Garoppolo. It was frowned upon.
Here is the last example of someone who does not understand that he does not understand. How embarrassing.
Jeff Garcia pops joint, hangs up on Bay Area radio over Mina Kimes comments
While everyone coming to Kimes’ defense was a bit of a stretch because she’s a professional and a grown woman who can clearly handle this, fewer and fewer people can be on Garcia’s side after this. Going with the redundant old cliché of “oh, you’ve never played football” is so ridiculously tired. Football is a national juggernaut and an increasingly international sport that everyone can enjoy.
Although the 49ers have won six straight against the rival Rams, this third game of the year is for the right to go to the Super Bowl. While Garoppolo has been unarguably the weakest of the four remaining starting quarterbacks, the 49ers stink when he’s not under center. They don’t win games without him. He may not be a magician under the center, but he leads a winning attack.
While Garcia has every right to disagree with Kimes’ take on Garoppolo, he should have known better than to take the ‘oh, you’ve never played’ approach to trying to discredit everything. the hard work she and the rest of the media have done to cover the sport for us as fans can say the same. So much has changed since Garcia last played in the league, but he wants to hold on to the past.
The 49ers winner against the Rams, Game 3 will play the Cincinnati Bengals winner against the Kansas City Chiefs, Game 2 at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, Calif., in two weeks for Super Bowl 56.
