After the 49ers roared past the Jacksonville Jaguars, 44-33, Michael Silver of NFL.com and NFL Network joined ‘Mornings W/ Joe, Lo & Dibs” and pointed out it’s not just Jimmy G. who’s emerging as a star.

“I think one thing that we’re starting to see — and it’s very early with Jimmy Garoppolo — when Kyle Shanahan has a quarterback who has a capability of doing some of the things Jimmy’s been doing, you start to see him outcoaching people more blatantly,” Silver told Dan Dibley, John Dickinson and Daryle "The Guru" Johnson.

“Here you have the No. 1 defense in the league with the Jaguars in most statistical categories and they’ve just been swallowing teams up and he came up with a game plan that kind of froze them, made them tentative and in the words of one Jags player to me, ‘exposed them.’
