How Many Championship Rings Does Jimmy Garoppolo Have?

For years it felt like the New England Patriots were always looking for the heir apparent to starting quarterback Tom Brady’s throne, and for a time, it looked like Eastern Illinois second-round player Jimmy Garoppolo would be “that guy.”

Drafted 62nd overall, Garoppolo immediately caught attention due to him coming out of the same school as Tony Romo and for his handsome good looks. 

In his rookie season, Garoppolo came in during a devastating Patriots loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, which many dubbed the end of Brady’s career. In that game, Garoppolo led a scoring drive that resulted in a pass to tight end Rob Gronkowski, and the legend of Garoppolo began. 

Following the “Deflategate” scandal, which sidelined Brady for four games, Garoppolo was set to suit up. Still, in his second game, he injured his AC joint, which gave way to Jacoby Brissett playing the remainder of Brad’s suspension. 

After several seasons with the Patriots, Garoppolo was ultimately traded to the San Fransisco 49ers, where he played from 2017-2022. 

Today, he’s with the Las Vegas Raiders after dealing with multiple injuries while with the 49ers. 

Garoppolo is a two-time Super Bowl winner, and we’ll explore those accomplishments below.

2014-15: New England Patriots

For his first Super Bowl win, the Patriots infamously beat the Seattle Seahawks after a goal-line interception by cornerback Malcolm Butler against quarterback Russell Wilson. 

While Garoppolo didn’t play in this game, Garoppolo is credited for preparing the Patriots defense, conditioning-wise, thanks to his mobility. While not on Wilson’s level, Garoppolo was the only quarterback on the Patriots roster that could move in a way that would prepare them for Wilson’s ability. 

“All year, he’s done a great job for us,” nose tackle Vince Wilfork said. “I don’t know if he’s quite like Russell in terms of mobility, but he’s not quite Tom Brady, either.”

Garoppolo’s other Super Bowl victory involved a game he didn’t play. The first Super Bowl he won came excitingly, but the next one involved another infamous milestone from the Patriots as they came back down 28-3 on the Falcons. This would be Garoppolo’s final season with the team. 

Comparing Garoppolo’s Rings to the Winningest Players in NFL History

With two Super Bowl victories, Garoppolo certainly has much to be proud of, even if he didn’t contribute on the field for those games. 

However, compared to other NFL legends, two rings still pales in comparison, as you’ll see in the chart below.

NFL Conference Championship Appearances Compared to NFL Legends

Throughout his career, Garoppolo has appeared in three Conference Championship games. His first came against the Indianapolis Colts in 2015, where he played just two snaps. He took over for Brady with 3:20 to go in the game. The Patriots won 45-7.

After this, his subsequent two appearances came when he was playing. This time, for the 49ers. 

In these two games, Garoppolo threw for 309 yards and two touchdowns. His first Conference Championship win came when he attempted just eight passes as the 49ers ran all over the Packers. 

With three appearances in these games, you can see how he compares to others below.
