The Raiders got their guy.
The Las Vegas Raiders recently signed Jimmy Garoppolo to be their quarterback for the next few years, barring anything crazy happening.
This is the first time the Raiders have had a new starting quarterback since Derek Carr's first season, which was in 2014. So, this is a little different from what Raiders fans and the Raiders have been used to for almost 10 years. That's a long time.
But, many fans are confident in what Garoppolo brings to the table and think he can win crucial games for the Raiders. Luckily for him, he is already fitting in perfectly, especially after his recent joke.

On the day he did his introductory press conference, Garoppolo also did a tour around the facilities and noticed the Raiders' own version of the Louvre, where they have a painting of all memorable moments in franchise history.
Garoppolo walked right up to the "tuck rule" painting and immediately said something all Raiders fans will agree with.
"It was a fumble. It was a fumble."
If you're not familiar with the tuck rule game, it was one of the most memorable moments of the Raiders' recent history in the 2000s. The 2001 AFC Divisional Playoff game between the New England Patriots and the Oakland Raiders. Raiders cornerback Charles Woodson tackled Patriots' quarterback Tom Brady, causing a fumble that was recovered by the Raiders. Apparently, Brady had "tucked" the ball back into his body, it was an incomplete pass.
Garoppolo saying how we all felt is only the icing on the cake, especially when you factor in that he played for the Patriots.2023-03-24T21:58:19Z dg43tfdfdgfd
