  • Former NFL quarterback Jeff Garcia called out Mina Kimes on Instagram, saying it’s “hilarious” she has a platform to talk about football.
  • Garcia was responding to Kimes’ comments about current Niners QB Jimmy Garoppolo on
  • on First Take.
  • Kimes has since responded to Garcia’s comments with sarcasm.

ESPN analyst Mina Kimes has responded to former NFL quarterback Jeff Garcia, who took to Instagram to question Kimes’ football knowledge and bemoan the fact that she has a platform to talk about the game.

Garcia had taken umbrage with comments Kimes had made about San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, who Kimes said is “the definition of being part of the group project that gets an A, while doing none of the work.”

“Who the hell is Mina Kimes and when is the last time she threw a touchdown pass in a game? NEVER! EVER! has she taken a snap or can truly understand the ability, the mindset, the physical and mental toughness, that it takes to play the QB position or any position in the NFL,” Garcia commented on Instagram.

“The fact that there are people out there given a platform to talk about something that they have never done is hilarious and that’s how you have to look at her, she’s a joke! So let’s just laugh at her and support Jimmy, root on our Niners to go out and beat the living fuck out of one more team. That’s what it takes. She will never know that feeling. Can I get an AMEN? Peace”

As Kimes sarcastically points out, she’s far from the only analyst to question Jimmy Garoppolo’s recent play.

“Apparently I was the only person last week to point out Jimmy Garoppolo didn’t play well,” Kimes tweeted in response. The tweet has since been deleted.

Garoppolo, who has 302 yards, two interceptions, and zero touchdowns through two playoff games thus far, will look to lead the San Francisco 49ers to their second Super Bowl in three years on Sunday when they take on their NFC West rival Los Angeles Rams at SoFi Stadium in the NFC Championship game. The winner of that match will take on either the Kansas City Chiefs or Cincinnati Bengals in Super Bowl LVI on Sunday, February 13, 2022.

At this time, the Chiefs are the current favorites to win the Super Bowl with betting odds of +110. The Chiefs are then followed by the Los Angeles Rams at +175, the San Francisco 49ers at +450, and finally the Cincinnati Bengals at +800.
