Garoppolo spent six-plus seasons with the 49ers after a midseason trade from the New England Patriots in 2017, leading San Francisco to a Super Bowl LIV appearance against the Chiefs four years ago.
The 49ers carried a 10-point lead into the fourth quarter of that game before suffering a heartbreaking loss after Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes completed a ferocious comeback to seal Garoppolo and the 49ers' fate.
It's safe to say Garoppolo's prediction did not sit well with 49ers fans ...
The 49ers will look to prove Garoppolo wrong and secure the franchise's sixth Vince Lombardi Trophy with a win over the defending champion Chiefs.
