The San Francisco 49ers came up short in the Super Bowl last season, but they still look like one of the best teams in the NFL heading into 2020.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan came out with some bold claims about Jimmy Garoppolo recently, and if those get even close close to coming true, this 49ers team could become something special.

Talk about lofty expectations. Garoppolo has certainly shown some flashes of greatness in San Francisco so far though, leading the Niners to a 19-5-0 regular season record in his 24 starts. Among the 40 passers that have thrown the ball at least 400 times over the last three years, Jimmy G's 8.20 adjusted yards per pass attempt (AY/A) rank sixth.

Surrounded by a team that has full confidence in him, the sky could be the limit for Garoppolo in San Francisco.
