injured thumb. what they are harkening back on is the great comeback that he led in the final moments. of the game against the rams this past sunday. he had a little over a minute to go 88 yards with no timeouts. debo helped with that , and then the touchdown to make sure the 49ers would take it into overtime. and they eventually one, but, you know, you get to thinking had things not gun like that. it could have been garoppolo was last game in a 49 or uniform. in fact, you still thinks about it every so often. always in the back of your mind. it has been in mind, you know, really this whole season just i knew what type of season it was knew everything that was going on, you know, behind the scenes and whatnot. so it was. it was a little different at the same time. it's like you're saying you got told that line because you don't want it too emotional in those moments. you know, the human side definitely comes into play. yep jimmy's definitely human and the cowboys quarterback dak
prescott at times has been inhuman with 37 touchdown passes this year. cowboys offense ranked number one. that's what the 49ers defense is going to have to contend with. although they're not exactly a bunch of pushovers themselves, led by fred warner, who has full respect, of course for what the cowboys are able to do. premier quarterback makes all the throws . uh high, just high level competitor. they're skilled guys. receivers. are are some of the best in the league, you know, making plays and doing things with the ball in their hands. physical nasty group. i'd say they posed pretty good threats for us challenges. last few days or so. it seems like a euphoria smackdown with regard to the golden state warriors. suddenly they've lost three out of four. they got clay back, but now draymond green is not even out on the road trip. they got to play the world champion milwaukee bucks tomorrow without
draymond, but they will have clay. you can't blame the troubles of late because of him back for two games, averaging 15.5 points a game. 38% shooting from the floor is bound to improve that looks very healthy and aggressive. in fact, last night they lost to memphis. he was plus 17 in his 20 minutes to play. hit that corner. three clay and steve kirk. glad he's back and looking to get more out of them to in the future. it's really exciting to see how he's playing this early. you know, after that long period being off and i look forward to being able to playing more minutes on the college courts. cal they've been playing better basketball of late, but out on the road in the great northwest. it did not go their way. although early on, it's certainly like the bears would continue their winning ways. first half up a husky myth
. look at sam calagione key tip it forward to himself aggressively to the bucket. cal was up on the huskies seven at halftime. different story after intermission. washington taking control dijon davis steals it. he had six. get it to p. j fuller pop in the three huskies take the ball game 64 55 bears falling out of two and four. in conference kind of a memorable day in stockton as santa clara is hosted by pacific. they had 948 fans. they're great night, though, for keyshawn justice, the broncos he had four threes in the first half alone, wound up with 17. the broncos stick it to pacific. 84 70 thanks to justice is hot hand and after the game well, especial night for herb sendek 5/100 career victory. and a unique kind of shower for him. you can tell the guys really like him. congrats
to the coach and the broncos. their victory tonight. alright we've come to that point of the evening where we must check this out. you know most of photographers they are behind the camera because they don't want to be in front of the camera. not this my ham bone right here and trust me. he is just getting started. somebody said do you want us to take a picture of you and he goes to town before. uh you have some serious red bull or something? yeah, right. got the guns down for the game. he's uh he's got moves. yeah talent and. it just doesn't want to get back behind the camera can tell you that. don't blame him. that is the sporting life right now. we'll see you back in about 25 minutes or so. alright mark. thank you. next at 11. vaccination is one of the best things that we can do to protect our children to ensure that they stay healthy through this. this new wave. well, tonight experts weigh in a shoring parents. the covid-19 vaccine is safe. as vaccination
