One start into his Niners career, Jimmy Garoppolo is already getting asked about franchise legend Joe Montana.

“The Joe Montana comparisons, I think it’s a little early for those,” Garoppolo said with a smile on Wednesday afternoon at 49ers HQ in Santa Clara. “It’s only been one game.”

But you’re both Italian, the reporter added.

“We’re both Italian so we have that in common, but I think it might be a little early,” Garoppolo said.
