So … is something happening with the 49ers nowadays?
My goodness. This crew produces quarterback drama like Iowa produces ears of corn. The newest turmoil, Trey Lance’s damaged ankle and Jimmy Garoppolo’s return as starter, has triggered all types of questions on San Francisco’s quarterback future.
I did my greatest to reply some. Thanks for all the good questions, which, as traditional, have been flippantly edited for content material.
Is Kyle Shanahan telling us he made a mistake drafting Trey with how he calls performs for him (the run calls)? — Frank A.
I don’t assume so. Lance’s means to run was enticing to Shanahan from the start and was one thing he talked about on draft day. Right here’s Shanahan on April 29, 2021:
“If you will get in sure formations the place the protection is aware of you’ll run (cell quarterbacks), in the event that they don’t honor them, now all the things’s totally different. When you can ever get a man like that and make it 11-on-11 soccer, then I believe you’ve bought a man who can change some issues for you. But it surely at all times comes all the way down to, ‘Yeah, you possibly can dabble in that,’ however you higher be assured they’ll do all the things else.”
Clearly, 13 runs in Week 1 and three extra within the first quarter on Sunday are greater than “dabbling” with the idea. Nonetheless, I believe that’s as a consequence of Lance’s inexperience. Shanahan noticed Lance’s legs as a solution to make him and the offense efficient whereas Lance realized methods to develop into a greater NFL passer.
