John Lynch says 49ers believe in Brandon Aiyuk but need more 'urgency' from receiver

Brandon Aiyuk has been the talk amongst 49ers fans after his slow start to the season. He has only caught eight passes for 90 yards over the team's first six games, despite breaking out as a rookie, having caught 60 passes for 748 yards and five touchdowns, leading the team in all three of those categories in 2020. Last week, John Lynch spoke about his second-year receiver and stated that Aiyuk "hasn't made the strides [the 49ers] have expected him to," sparking a controversy about whether the team's been misusing him, or if there's really something different about Aiyuk.

However, selections like Dante Pettis severely impact evaluations of recent draft classes. The jury is still out on last year's first-rounders, Javon Kinlaw and Brandon Aiyuk. The latter's lack of involvement this season has been baffling. The 49ers have hit

The Cleveland Browns have lost two consecutive games. Their quarterback, Baker Mayfield, is ailing. He had his arm in a sling after the Browns' 37-14 loss to the Arizona Cardinals this past weekend and said this of his shoulder: "It feels like s--t." Mayfield suffered a partially torn labrum in Week 2. He landed hard on that same shoulder on Sunday following a sack by Cardinals defender J.J. Watt. With the November 2 trade deadline approaching, San Francisco 49ers fans should brace themselves for a lot of Jimmy Garoppolo chatter now that the No. 3 overall pick, Trey Lance, has a start under his belt. The team has expressed a preference to ride out the season with the more experienced Garoppolo at the helm. Does that change depending on how these next two games
