49ers save savior Jimmy Garoppolo for when it matters most

Here is your Jimmy G. highlight from the 49ers’ first exhibition game:

He didn’t get injured.

After an offseason that included the signing of a record-breaking contract, frenzied anticipation by fans, swooning coverage by one media outlet calling him “Superman in Disguise,” and a leaked TMZ video of a date with an adult-film star, Jimmy Garoppolo finally was back on a football field.

For about four minutes.

And it wasn’t magic.

The delirium in the past seven months might have led one to expect a quick touchdown drive, a rainbow appearing in the dusk over Levi’s, a packed stadium full of devoted fans holding hands and a sprinkling of fairy dust.
