Recently, a video was put together that showed just how similar Jimmy Garoppolo acts on the field to his old teammate, Tom Brady.
Here’s a look at the video, in case you haven’t seen it.
When they say new @49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo is a lot like the GOAT @Patriots QB Tom Brady after studying under him for 4 years and watching him lead two 4th quarter comebacks to win Superbowls, they're not wrong. pic.twitter.com/uynhHInGLF

On Monday, Garoppolo said he’s seen the video and admitted it’s “creepy.”
Yes, Jimmy Garoppolo caught the video showing how closely his mannerisms echo those of Tom Brady. He called it "creepy." "Obviously I've picked up some stuff from him," Garoppolo said. "But I saw it, and it's a little weird."

It’s definitely not coincidence, being that Garoppolo was Brady’s pupil four years running. Still, it’s pretty crazy just how much the new San Francisco 49ers signal caller acts and sounds like Brady.
That said, it’s pretty clear Brady knows what he’s doing, and that what he does generates excellent results. So, Garoppolo and the 49ers can’t feel too disappointed about all this, even if it is kind of weird.
Maybe that’s why Jimmy G is now growing a beard…
