Jimmy Garoppolo of the 49ers is ranked 43 on the NFL 2020 Top 100 Players list.

The players have spoken.

49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is the 43rd player in the NFL, according to colleagues.

The NFL began releasing the “NFL Top 100” list on Sunday, and on Monday they revealed players No. 70 to No. 41. The ranking is based on the votes of NFL players.

Five quarterbacks were on the list before Garoppolo’s name was called: Kyler Murray of the Arizona Cardinals at No. 90, Josh Allen of Buffalo Bills at No. 87, Ryan Tannehill of Tennessee Titans at No. 68, Kirk Cousins ​​of the Minnesota Vikings at No. 90. 58 and Dak Prescott of the Dallas Cowboys at No. 46.

Twitter did not react well to Garoppolo’s ranking ahead of Prescott.

Unfortunately for those Twitter users, gamers hit this one.

Garoppolo is 21-5 as an NFL starter and helped guide the 49ers to Super Bowl LIV. Say what you want about the 49ers defense as their ticket to the big game, but Garoppolo still had a very good season. He completed 69 percent of his passes for 3,978 yards and 27 touchdowns.


Yes, Prescott threw for nearly 1,000 more yards than Garoppolo in 2019, but with several elite offensive weapons flanking him, he was only able to lead the Cowboys to an 8-8 record. In major games throughout the season, Prescott failed to lead Dallas to victory.

It could be argued that both Garoppolo and Prescott are overrated by their fan bases, but Prescott is touted by the national media. The fourth-round team has won just one playoff game in four seasons. He’s never been to a conference championship game, let alone a Super Bowl.

In the NFL, a quarterback’s greatness is judged by Super Bowl victories. Garoppolo has yet to win one as a starter, but at least he made it to the big game. Prescott hasn’t gotten there yet.

If Garoppolo had beaten Emmanuel Sanders in a deep attack on the Kansas City Chiefs, this is probably not a debate. The 49ers would have been Super Bowl champions and Garoppolo is probably much higher on this list.

Fans and the media have been ruthless in their criticism of Garoppolo, but most of his teammates have come to his defense this offseason. They know he is the guy who can take them back to the Super Bowl and help them win it.

Regular season stats are good, but until Prescott can make a deep playoff career, he shouldn’t rank ahead of Garoppolo, and NFL players voted that way.
