Garoppolo has thrown for 11 touchdowns and four interceptions in seven games while recording a QB Rating of 100.7 under center this season.
However, general manager John Lynch believes that the 49ers will see a different quarterback with superstar running back Christian McCaffrey in the mix.
"I do believe that you know, you've heard Jimmy say, Christian sees the field like a quarterback," Lynch told NBC Sports Bay Area's Matt Maiocco on the latest edition of "49ers Game Plan." "So I think there's a connection already.
"I believe they have an incredible synergy already, and I think a lot of that is how smart of a football player that Christian is ... I like where our O-line is at, and Jimmy, we all know he's got the capability to deliver it. He played nearly flawless [against the Los Angeles Rams] and it was awesome to watch."
Lynch and the front office have built a Super Bowl-caliber offense. If health permits, it will fall on Garoppolo's shoulders to navigate the offense throughout the remainder of the 2022 NFL season and potentially lead San Francisco to a Super Bowl LVII appearance.
San Francisco will return from its Week 8 bye to face off against the Los Angeles Chargers on "Sunday Night Football" at Levi's Stadium on Nov. 13.
