Why does everyone seem to hate Jimmy G?

    No matter where I look, it seems that people are either "not sold" on him or won't give this kid any credit for where he has his team right now. I understand that he is young and has to earn this but he seems to be doing just that this season.

    I've seen guys like Rodney Harrison and Stephen A. Smith to local radio guys and some around here who roots against him. (Think there was a thread on this topic, specifically). He's been deemed a "game manager" and the good ole "its all his defense" reason why they are winning. I feel like I see him throwing the ball pretty well, scording TDs, limited turnovers and most importantly, winning games for his team. His team has the same record as our team in a much better NFC. He's still very young and has a lot to learn from and develop if he remains healthy.

    Just not sure why it seems people hate this kid. Those 4 games Brady was suspended, he did well for us the first 2 and 1/2 games. (Until he was injured). Maybe I'm missing something here.

    Thoughts on this?

    We don't - we just don't want him to do better than the Pats so that we don't have to listen to all the arm chair GMs, homegrown and otherwise, going on and on about how the Patriots made a mistake in trading him (even though BB waited until the last possible second and had no choice, other than letting him go in FA for nothing).

    I wanted Jimmy G to lose at least one game, which he did. Now I want him either not to make the SB, or if he does, to make it against us and have our awesome D beat him. If we don't make it and he does, I guess I am ok with him winning it, but I really wish he wouldn't. I'm fine with him killing every other team except us, and winning every other game except the SB (beating down on Aaron Rodgers? Hell yes! Go Jimmy!).

    Does this make me a hater? Nope. It makes me a vicarious competitor who's way too invested in the New England Patriots. It is what it is.

    He is, but he looks like he would be "classier" than he really is, if you get my meaning (dating a porn star and not understanding people's reactions; calling a female reporter "baby" on the sideline - and I know it was just an excited slip, but still). His looks don't match his level of sophistication. And yes, I am being petty and silly and it's Monday and I don't want to do all the work on my desk.

    I like him. I have no problem with trading him as the money wouldn't work for him and Brady. I do have a problem with what we got but that's an issue with Belichick, not Jimmy.

    My thoughts are everybody here will be big time rooting for Handsome Jimmy this coming Sunday. Give us the right result and we'll downright love the guy. Maybe not quite the way Mikey Shinebox Giardi does but (minus the kneepads) pretty damn close.

    I was never a fan of his choice in porn star. Sorry, I'm not ready to let bygones be bygones just yet.

    My only issue with Jimmy G is reliability. Otherwise I hope he does well. No hate here for SF and their awesome D.

    He's a SB winning former starting QB for the Pats.

    That sounds awesome.

    The same reason most people hate Tom Brady.

    People associate good looking people with being arrogant.

    Tom Brady is good looking, therefore he/Patriots are arrogant.
    Jimmy G is good looking, therefore he/49ers is arrogant.

    People gravitate towards people "they think they can or could be".

    Prime Example - Steph Curry
    He can bench maybe 180 pounds, isn't 6'9 and can barely dunk. You can be that. You can't be LeBron though, so you hate him. You can be Ben Roethlisberger. Eat at 5 Guys every day and be tall. But you can't marry Gisele.

    "people"
    Let me give you some life advice. Stop listening to these people. They are morons and pot stirrers. Get your updates from Patsfans. If you're on twitter, Reiss, Cap Space (Miguel) and Matt Chatham are sane people to follow. Otherwise ignore everything else.
    What those "people" say about Jimmy G or anything is just noise.

    I wish Jimmy the best, until February.

    Some media people hate him since he was groomed by the Patriots, so praising him would be de facto praise of the Patriots.

    Some others doubt him because he got his big contract on the basis of less than 1 season of work, and we have seen QBs regress after a good year.

    Some Patriots fans knock him because they are annoyed at the Garappolites (who I think are actually very few in number, though vocal) who wanted JG to replace TB12 last year (and settle for 1 less Lombardi and counting, but I digress).

    I root for him.

    Criticism is not the same as hate. Furthermore, who cares? He's not a Patriot.

    A porn star perhaps, but a 41 year old porn star. :eek: Now THAT's where I draw the line. ;)

    Very talented and a fiery guy. I root for him every game. Big Jimmy G fan. Love what he's doing in SF. Will only root against him or Brissett when they play the Pats.
