NBC Sports’ Peter King, grand sage of the NFL, joined “The Damon Bruce Show” for his debut appearance on Tuesday and was very bullish on the outlook for the 49ers.

“The 49ers are going to make the playoffs…”

Well, with one caveat.

“It’s hard to say that in a vacuum,” King said on 95.7 The Game. “If Jimmy Garoppolo slips on a banana peel in September, they’re not making the playoffs…

King brushed aside claims that Garoppolo, who missed the lion’s share of last year with an ACL tear, is injury prone. Instead, King suggested Garoppolo has endured some bad luck.

“I believe, in my opinion, if Garoppolo plays in 16 games this year, I’m picking the 49ers to go to the playoffs.”
