In a slow and sloppy encounter on Sunday, Jimmy Garoppolo and the team registered an 11-10 loss to the Denver Broncos. It was a low-scoring game featuring 17 punts and a hell lot of frivolous gameplay.

At least it was not expected from Garoppolo, who vowed to return on a high note. There were many moments in the game where the Niners could have converted it to their favor. But in the end, Russell Wilson pulled it through. The fumbled snaps, and touchdown miss to Deebo Samuel, the safety, could have saved the game, but all those interceptions and sacks, paved the way for a crushing defeat.

It could have been a fair loss for Garoppolo’s led side if either the defense or offense could have fared well. But it was humiliating that they even missed chances accidentally thrown by the opposition.

With this performance, the Niners fans have started pitching for Trey Lance, who is suffering from an ankle injury. The second-year quarterback was nominated as the starting quarterback, but Garoppolo had to step up after the former got injured. Now they are calling it a mistake and have been ‘missing’ Lance on the field.

Trey Lance supporters get trolled by the netizens

Ahead of the Week 3 clash, Niners head coach Kyle Shanahan called Jimmy Garoppolo one of the best throwers on the planet. He also affirmed that Lance was happy to learn that Garoppolo is replacing him. But all of a sudden, the trust of fans seemed to have fallen apart. They severely trolled all those who verbalized getting back Lance in the NFL world.

One of the users asked what Lance had achieved to miss him.

Similarly, this user couldn’t see any logic.

He ain’t going to be better, said another user.

Indeed, Garoppolo was a much better choice.
