How Jimmy Garoppolo responds to being NFL's best-looking quarterback


Super Bowl Opening Night on Monday gave us a little bit of everything.

The media frenzy was filled with fun interviews and unique questions for both the 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs. Some outlets ask about game plans, some ask more laidback questions. 

One important question for 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo was what it felt like to be the best-looking quarterback in the NFL.

"I got named that? You've got to check who's voting on that," Garoppolo told the media. "It's an honor, I guess."

Not gonna lie -- I was expecting something along the lines of his catchphrase, "It feels great, baby." But that' didn't happen. 

That saying became synonymous with Garoppolo after his infamous interview with Fox Sports' Erin Andrews.

Oh, you don't remember? Let me refresh your memory: 

It became popular. Very popular. 

So much so, Garoppolo's agents have filed six trademarks for the saying. They even have a clothing brand and TV show in the works.

Nonetheless, Jimmy G kept it cool. 

It appears, also, he's rather modest.
