The San Francisco 49ers are going to see what Jimmy Garoppolo can do as their starting quarterback on Sunday in Week 13 at the Chicago Bears. First-year head coach Kyle Shanahan told his quarterbacks about the switch Tuesday, per Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee. Garoppolo gave the 49ers a taste of what he can do when he took over for an injured Beathard on their final drive in Week 12 against the Seattle Seahawks. He went 2-of-2 for 18 yards and connected with Louis Murphy for a touchdown on the final play of the game. The combination of Beathard and Brian Hoyer did not work for the 49ers and Shanahan. That duo had eight touchdowns and 10 interceptions with a completion percentage of 56.4.
