Tom Brady-Jimmy Garoppolo posed for next 'The Match' by Colin Cowherd

Tom Brady-Jimmy Garoppolo posed for next 'The Match' by Colin Cowherd

Bay Area native Tom Brady didn’t start out so hot in Sunday’s “The Match,” but managed to make the most impressive shot of the day on the seventh hole. The event, also featuring former NFL MVP Peyton Manning and PGA icons Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, was a smashing success, raising over $20 million for coronavirus relief efforts and becoming the most-watched golf event in cable television history.

Fox Sports’ Colin Cowherd talked through some potential duos who should participate in the next iteration of the event, and thinks Brady could take on former teammate and current 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo next time around.

Brady and Mickelson were swiftly defeated by the Manning-Woods pairing on Sunday, and likely would be seeking some revenge in a showdown with Garoppolo. The two also have the obvious history of being in New England together before a controversial trade with the 49ers in 2017.

Of course, 49ers general manager John Lynch did admit this offseason that the front office did due diligence on Brady during his free agency, but the six-time Super Bowl champ opted to join the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Garoppolo has taken a plethora of shots this offseason for his play in Super Bowl LIV, where the Niners blew a 10-point lead and lost to the Kansas City Chiefs.

There doesn’t seem to be much evidence of Garoppolo’s golf game on the internet, but it’s hard to imagine he hasn’t hit the links a few times in his life. He couldn’t play much worse than Brady started out through six holes on Sunday.

Underlying tension between the two could come to the surface over the course of 18 holes together, but Garoppolo and Brady never have given any public indication the two have beef.

A matchup between the two could provide some laughs, but there are plenty of other duos more compelling for the next event.

Watch 49ers' Javon Kinlaw replicate Aaron Donald knife training drill

Javon Kinlaw isn't afraid of a few deadly weapons.

The 49ers rookie showed off a seemingly dangerous drill on social media Friday in a video posted by defensive line trainer Cam Spence.

You're correct, those are in fact a pair of knives being wielded and sent in Kinlaw's direction as he bats them away. We've seen a similar drill from two-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year Aaron Donald.

Kinlaw was the 49ers' first selection in the 2020 NFL Draft, going No. 14 overall. The South Carolina product plugged up the middle for the Gamecocks' defense, picking up six sacks and recovering two fumbles. He likely will have an immediate chance to contribute, as All-Pro DeForest Buckner's departure to Indianapolis leaves a void in the 49ers' defensive line.

The rookie, along with a few returning players looking to earn a contract, will be imperative to make sure that void is filled in order for the 49ers to replicate the dominance the team enjoyed in 2019.

49ers' Brandon Aiyuk sixth-best rookie receiver in Madden 21 ratings

49ers' Brandon Aiyuk sixth-best rookie receiver in Madden 21 ratings

The Brandon Aiyuk hype among 49ers fans has grown exponentially ever since he was drafted 25th overall in April.

The sixth receiver to come off the board in the 2020 NFL Draft, Aiyuk is expected to make an immediate impact with his elite breakaway speed, which he showcased numerous times during his two seasons at Arizona State.

But based on the just-released Madden 21 ratings, Aiyuk isn't even among the fastest wide receivers in his rookie class. In fact, he's just the sixth-best rookie wideout according to the video game's new ratings, checking in at 72 overall.

[SPORTS UNCOVERED: Listen to the latest episode]

The rookie receivers' overall ratings were almost identical to their draft positions, with the Denver Broncos' Jerry Jeudy and the Dallas Cowboys' CeeDee Lamb swapping places being the only alteration.

When it comes to speed, however, Aiyuk checks in as the 10th-fastest rookie wide receiver, behind a handful of players drafted well behind him.

Aiyuk's 40-yard dash time at the NFL Scouting Combine wasn't exactly elite (4.54 seconds), but during his senior season, he was tracked with a top in-game speed of 21.97 mph -- a mark bested by just three NFL players in 2019.

Game speed is different than track speed, and Aiyuk brings game speed in spades every time he takes the field.

Guessing those ratings might be adjusted once Aiyuk actually sees some on-field action in a 49ers uniform.
