Last week, the Arizona Cardinals hosted the San Francisco 49ers in a divisional battle where the Cards would put up more of a fight that not many expected from them. The cardinals eventually fell 28-25, but all anyone wanted to talk about was a post-game interview between Garoppolo and Erin Andrews.
Andrews asked the star quarterback how he felt about the 49ers moving to 8-0 with the win. He responded, “Feels great, baby.” The clip went super viral and many thought Jimmy G was shooting his shot at the married reporter.
The veteran NFL reporter didn’t verbally respond, but she did retweet a not-so-subtle message from 49ers offensive tackle Joe Staley.
Garoppolo was asked about that clip on Thursday and he explained he says “baby” about “500 times a game.”
The 49ers are the only remaining unbeaten team in the league as they get set to face the Seattle Seahawks on Monday Night Football.
