After struggling mightily throughout the course of training camp, Jimmy Garoppolo figured something out and has been opening eyes all week.
Jeff Howe joined Arbella Early Edition to discuss Garoppolo's turnaround.
"Something clicked in that Redskins game, and he's been just as good all this week in practice," said Howe. "I don't think it's going to be [Friday] , but very soon, maybe next week, he's going to be the number two guy in one of these games. They owe it to themselves."
Is there a chance Garopollo can take the No. 2 spot away from Mallett?
"Belichick's not going to use a second round pick on a guy that isn't going to play a single snap if he doesn't truly believe in him," said Howe. "Belichick proved that he wants this guy on the team and wants him in a quality backup role."
