Kyle Shanahan on Jimmy Garoppolo's debut: 'It was pretty impressive'

Robbie Gould Clowned The Bears

The rookie caught it in stride and raced 33 yards down to the Bears' 18 - well within former Bear Robbie Gould's range to connect on his fifth and final field goal.

Instead of taking advantage of a bad San Francisco 49ers football team, the Chicago Bears ended up as nothing more than a footnote in Jimmy Garoppolo's first win.

Gould is now 36-of-38 on field goals since leaving the Bears and he specifically mentioned that "it's pretty special to be playing for a guy like Coach (Richard) Hightower", who was the Bears' assistant special teams coordinator in 2016 and is now the 49ers special teams coordinator. I was going against a team that I have a lot of respect for. In his first full game in a 49ers uniform and his first in his native Chicago since he was a college sophomore, Jimmy Garoppolo looked like he belonged in the lead role. Garoppolo didn't throw a single incompletion when targeting receivers Marquise Goodwin and Trent Taylor, and his lone statistical blemish - a first-quarter interception - came when a Bears defender wrestled the ball from receiver Louis Murphy's hands.

San Francisco (2-10) won for the second time in the past three games and earned its first road victory of the season.

"Ryan has never reached out to me". "I think everyone contributed. It was fun to watch him do some real good things and it was real fun to watch him lead us to a win".

"I was clean for the most part, Garoppolo recalled, "so that plays a huge role in all third downs and big plays like that. You don't know if it's going to come true or not but it's insane how things work out". "It's insane how things work out".

And he's right that neither of the options are great, but one option gives you a chance to win and the other one results in an almost-certain loss. Tarik Cohen added a 61-yard punt return for a touchdown.

He will begin his engagements with a visit to Egypt on December 2 and then travel to Jordan on December 3. Trump while announcing the strategy had criticised Pakistan for providing safe havens to terrorists.

"It was hard to even talk to the team after this loss", Fox said.

"We just didn't execute today", Trubisky said. He came in a short time (ago) and is helping us flip this thing around. The only correct coaching move in that situation was to allow Hyde to walk into the end zone untouched, which would have left around 90 seconds on the clock for Trubisky to lead a potential game-winning touchdown drive.

Gould made three field goals in the first half to account for San Francisco's first nine points.

Like their new quarterback, coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch must've felt like little kids whose dreams were coming true watching Garoppolo infuse a rebuilding organization with new hope in the form of a 26-year-old franchise quarterback.

Fuller's first interception since December 13, 2015 came on the 49ers' second drive of the game when the 2014 first-round pick ripped Jimmy Garoppolo's pass away from receiver Louis Murphy.

That won't be easy, with the schedule taking a tough turn following next week's game at Houston.
