49ers’ Jimmy Garoppolo on Brandon Aiyuk’s production: ‘It happens’


Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

On Wednesday, Kyle Shanahan wasn’t too concerned about wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk’s lack of production this season. The San Francisco 49ers head coach loves what his 24-year-old has been doing on the football field, even though his receiving total hasn’t been what many expected.

“Everyone expects numbers based on guys playing well, and it doesn’t always work out that way,” Shanahan said. “BA played very well. I thought he had his best game against Carolina; the second best game of the previous week. But the ball doesn’t always go that way. … But his time will come. When we’ve come to BA, he’s done a hell of a job.

“He had opportunities last week that we just didn’t communicate to him, which would have helped his stats and helped his perception. But that’s all that matters to me, it’s really the perception. BA play her ass.”

Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo knows the 49ers have a selfless team. Everyone is happy as long as the 49ers win, and the team is looking to win its third straight Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons. Will Aiyuk be more involved in the game plan? It feels like the receiver is due for an escape game.

“I know, like everyone says, he doesn’t get the goals and all that stuff,” Garoppolo told reporters after Thursday’s practice. “There’s so much more to our offense than that. It’s just exciting. We’ve got a good group that’s not just about ‘Hey, I need that hold, I need that hold’ or ‘ It was supposed to go to me here. It’s cool to have guys like that all on the same page.

“BA, he was a team player and he made big plays for us too. It’s coming. It’s coming.”

The offense as a whole has clicked since an embarrassing Week 3 showing against the Denver Broncos. Since then, the unit has racked up 327 total yards against the Los Angeles Rams and 308 total yards against the Carolina Panthers. But, more importantly, the 49ers offense took care of the football. Sunday’s fumble from tight end George Kittle has been the offensive’s only giveaway in the past two games.

“I think it’s going in the right direction,” Garoppolo explained. “I think we still have a way to go, offensively. We left some points there on Sunday that we would like to recover, but the way our defense and our special teams are playing at the moment, we just have to follow them. ”
