Y'all trading for Jimmy Garoppolo when Kaepernick is still breathing. Like damn.

The Patriots trading Jimmy G confirms that Tom Brady is indeed a metahuman aging at a much slower rate than us mortals

Well… I guess this Jimmy G. trade opens up a roster spot for Tom Brady's ghost. pic.twitter.com/af1SgcV2gT

What happens if Tom Brady gets hurt this season? Brissett already traded to Colts. Jimmy G gone. No other QB even on roster right now.

Matt Cassell, Ryan Mallett, Brian Hoyer, Jacoby Brissett, & now Jimmy G. I guess if your the Pats back-up QB, you're just there to be traded.

How are you already talking about fantasy when jimmy G doesnt know a single play in the 49ers playbook

49ers will win 2 or 3 games w/ Jimmy G and they dont need to draft a QB now & won’t be signing Cousins
this trade is good news for the Jets

If Billicheat thought for a second Jimmy Garoppolo was "the real deal" do you think he would trade him for a 2nd?
— LandShark (@LandShark_13) October 31, 2017
I will 100% buy a Kaepernick jersey if he signs

Now we await Bill “the svengali” Belichick’s next move. Meanwhile, look for Garoppolo to have an immediate impact in San Francisco.
