sport news Jimmy Garoppolo become first quarterback in 14 years to run out the back of the ... trends now
Jimmy Garoppolo was inserted back into the San Francisco 49ers starting lineup after last weeks injury to Trey Lance, and his performance will likely be remembered for all the wrong reasons.
During the third quarter of the 11-10 lose to the Denver Broncos, Garoppolo dropped back too far and stepped out the back of the end zone resulting in a safety as he tried to get a pass off.
It was the first time a quarterback had ran out the back of the end zone since ESPN analyst Dan Orlovsky did so during the Detroit Lions 0-16 season in 2008.
What made the moment even better was the fact that Orlovsky quickly took to twitter to express his happiness that he was no longer the only quarterback to committed such a folly after suffering through 14 years of jokes.
