Frank Clark has been running his mouth all postseason, but he and the team have been backing it up and it got them a Super Bowl win.
In fact, after the Chiefs beat the 49ers 31-20 in Super Bowl LIV, he took some a more personal shot at 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo.
“You paying the guy $140 million, $130 million, whatever he’s getting paid, man,” Clark said, via Brian Witt of NBCSportsBayArea.com. “He’s gotta throw the ball. Obviously he didn’t do that. They threw for about 200 yards on checkdowns; that ain’t enough to win a game against us.”
Garoppolo finished the game 20-of-31 for 219 yards, with a touchdown and two interceptions. 20 completions and 31 passing attempts were more than he had recorded in the previous two postseason games combined.
Garoppolo threw downfield more on Sunday than he has at any point over the past month, but it still wasn’t enough to will the 49ers to victory.
