What inspired 49ers’ Garoppolo to rally in rain at Washington?

He got sacked twice, and his overall touchdown-to-interception ratio is now 7:6 for the season.Said coach Kyle Shanahan: “You’re never too comfortable when you’re playing in all the sleet and mud, but he made big throws when he had to. I know he wants to take that interception back, just not holding the safety enough. But he also made big plays scrambling with his legs.”Now 12-2 all-time as the 49ers’ starter, Garoppolo ran four times for 20 yards on the first two drives, twice converting on third down.“Whatever you’ve got to do to get the job done,” Garoppolo said.SEASON PASS DIGITAL OFFERIf you have not already, we strongly encourage you to sign up for a digital subscription, which gives you access to all content on the Mercury News and East Bay Times websites.

LANDOVER, Md. — Jimmy Garoppolo said he was “upset” he missed the 49ers’ muddy, postgame belly slides that celebrated Sunday’s 9-0 win and 6-0 record.That is about all he missed after a rueful interception early in the second half.Garoppolo completed all eight of his ensuing passes and led the 49ers on three field-goal drives.Jimmy Garoppolo #10 of the San Francisco 49ers attempts a pass against the Washington Redskins during the first half at FedExField on October 20, 2019 in Landover, Maryland. (Photo by Scott Taetsch/Getty Images)“Just kind of got in a good rhythm there,” Garoppolo said. “I was upset about the interception; that one’s on me. But the guys responded very well throughout the entire game.” His passer rating finished at a season-low 59.8, but that looks a ton better than 8.2, which is what he had following the fourth-down interception at Washington’s 14-yard line. Garoppolo said he simply failed to stymie Washington safety Troy Apke on his throw toward Dante Pettis, so Apke easily nabbed it and returned it to near midfield.How much of a factor was the constant rain?“You’ve got to take it into account but not let it get in your head,” Garoppolo said. “It made the ball heavier. But you practice it, and I’ve played in rain my whole life so it wasn’t anything crazy.”A Chicago-area native who spent his first four NFL seasons in the New England elements, Garoppolo still had passes flutter, and a 40-yard reception by Richie James actually came on a 10-yard route.“Growing up in Chicago you play in the rain all the time playing football. But I haven’t had one on the grass like this in a long time,” Garpopolo said. “It was fun out there. Just running, you’re soaking wet. So it was a good time.”last_img read more

Trackable Etiquette

first_imgTrackable EtiquetteTrackablesTrackables are “game pieces” that add another level of fun to geocaching. Trackable owners generally assign them goals such as to “cross the Atlantic” or “visit 5/5 geocaches.” The geocaching community helps Trackables reach their goals by moving them from cache to cache.How do you know when you have found a Trackable?Although Trackables come in many shapes and sizes, each one has a tracking code—a unique series of letters and numbers—stamped on it.  This code allows geocachers to follow the items’ real-world travels online. A Trackable will also contain text indicating that it can be tracked on Geocaching.com or Groundspeak.com. The most common Trackables are Geocoins and Travel Bugs®.If you find a Trackable in a geocache, you are not required to trade anything for it, but please take it only if you are willing to follow some general Trackable etiquette:Trackable•    Log that you have retrieved the Trackable from the geocache as soon as you can. This way the Trackable owner, cache owner, and anyone who may be searching for the Trackable knows that it is moving.•    Check the Trackable’s goal by inputting its tracking code here before placing it in another cache. The idea is to place it in a cache that will move it closer to its goal.•    Drop the Trackable in the next geocache and log that you have done so. If you need to keep the Trackable for more than two weeks, please email the Trackable owner to inform them.Remember that Trackables are owned by other members of the community who are eager to see where their Trackable moves next. Before you take an item from a geocache, please check to see whether it is a Trackable and, if it is, only take it if you are willing to help it on its journey in a timely manner.Learn how to log a Geocoin or Travel Bug or buy your own Trackable at Shop Geocaching.Trackables sind “Spielsteine‘” welche einen zusätzlichen Spaßfaktor zum Geocaching hinzufügen. Die Besitzer von Trackables legen im Allgemeinen Ziele wie “Überquere den Atlantik” oder “Besuche nur 5/5 Geocaches” fest. Die Geocaching–Community hilft dabei diese Ziele zu erreichen, in dem Sie Trackables von Cache zu Cache transportiert.Woher weißt Du, daß Du einen Trackable gefunden hast?Obwohl Trackables in vielen Formen und Größen vorkommen, hat jeder einen Tracking–Code — eine eindeutige Folge von Buchstaben und Zahlen — eingestanzt.  Dieser Code ermöglicht Geocachern, die Reisen dieser Gegenstände online zu verfolgen. Auf dem Trackable befindet sich auch ein kleiner Hinweistext, dass er auf Geocaching.com oder Groundspeak.com verfolgt werden kann. Die häufigsten Trackables sind Geocoins und Travel Bugs®.Wenn Du einen Trackable in einem Geocache findest, ist es nicht notwendig, wenn Du Ihn herausnimmst etwas als Ersatz hineinzulegen. Du solltest jedoch folgende Trackable–Etikette beachten:•    Wenn Du einen Trackable aus einem Geocache entnimmst, so logge dies bitte so schnell wie möglich. Dadurch weiß der Trackable–Owner, der Cache–Owner und jeder der nach diesem Trackable sucht, dass dieser sich bewegt hat.•    Überprüfe das Ziel des Trackables wenn du seinen Code hier eingibst, bevor du Ihn in einen anderen Cache ablegst. Die Grundidee ist, dass Du den Trackable in einen Cache legst, welcher Ihn näher an sein Ziel bringt.•    Lege den Trackable in den nächsten Geocache und logge dies online. Wenn es nötig ist, dass Du einen Trackable länger als zwei Wochen behältst, melde dies bitte dem Trackable–Owner.GeocoinDenke daran, Trackables sind Eigentum von anderen Mitgliedern der Geocaching–Gemeinschaft, welche gerne sehen wie sich Ihr Trackable weiter bewegt. Bevor Du einen Trackable aus einem Geocache entnimmst, überprüfe daher bitte, ob Du ihm beim Erfüllen seines Zieles helfen kannst.Erfahre wie man einen Geocoin oder Travel Bug® loggt oder kaufe Deinen eigenen Trackable im Geocaching–Shop.ADDITIONAL TRACKABLE STORIES:Zusätzliche Trackable Geschichten:Share your Trackable stories for a chance to win this rare and coveted Moun10bike Trackable.Share your Trackable stories for a chance to win Trackables.Teile jetzt Deine Trackable–Geschichten mit anderen und habe die Chance auf diesem seltenen und begehrten Moun10Bike Trackable.Shop Now to Find Trackable Week Discounts of 10% or MoreFinde jetzt Rabatte von 10% oder mehr während der Trackable-Woche(Für Trackables von teilnehmenden Anbietern)Share with your Friends:More SharePrint RelatedFive reminders about trackablesAugust 28, 2018In “News”Trackable Do’s and Don’tsJune 16, 2014In “Learn”The difference between SWAG and trackablesMay 12, 2018In “Geocaching Weekly Newsletter”last_img read more
