Jimmy Garoppolo sucked on the field Monday night ... but Jerry Rice is giving the NFL star his unwavering support ... going to Twitter to defend the QB with a hilarious fail as bad as Jimmy's performance.
The 49ers signal-caller went 1 for 6 with 0 yards and an INT in his first game back since suffering a season-ending ACL injury in Week 3 last season ... resulting in an incredibly bad 0.0 QB rating.
But, don't freak out, fans ... the G.O.A.T. is here to make everything better!!!
"Relax everyone jimmy G . will be fine this year!!! Go miners" the G.O.A.T. tweeted.
Hey, we all know Rice meant well after the team's $137 million man stunk it up, but the fumble on the vote of confidence is hilariously ironic.
As sure as Jimmy G will get to see another game, Rice got another shot at the tweet (which was deleted) ... and got it right the 2nd time around.
"Relax everyone Jimmy G will be fine this year. It takes a while coming off ACL injury!!!! @goatfuel #Neverstop #Neverquit #begreat"
