49ers’ George Kittle loves that Trey Lance doesn’t let mistakes get into his head

Jun 22, 2021 at 11:35 AM--


Tight ends George Kittle and Robert Tonyan joined ESPN's First Take today to discuss several topics, including Tight End University. Many of the topics were a repeat of what Kittle shared earlier on the Pardon My Take podcast or other interviews, including why Tim Tebow wasn't invited to Nashville, Tennessee for the gathering of NFL tight ends.

Also among the topics during the First Take interview was Trey Lance. Molly Qerim Rose asked Kittle about the San Francisco 49ers rookie quarterback, now that the offseason program is behind them.

"Trey's a good quarterback," Kittle told Stephen A. Smith, Max Kellerman, and Qerim Rose. "I'm excited to see the progression that he makes. He's a hell of an athlete. Just being in OTAs with him, he's a guy that wants to learn every single day. He's competitive every single day. He doesn't let mistakes stop him. Nothing snowballs."

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler recently shared what the 49ers focused on for their 21-year-old quarterback before players departed for their offseason break.

"I'm told San Fran spent much of the OTAs and minicamp working on Trey Lance's mechanics, making sure things were compact," Fowler said. "And the reason is they wanted to get that down so that in training camp they can unleash the full arsenal."

Players are off until they report back to Santa Clara on July 27 for training camp. They are expected to work on their own, hone what they learned during organized team activities, stay in shape, and be prepared to show their progress when they return.

Lance has been working hard during the time off. Several videos have surfaced (here, here, and here) of the rookie quarterback going through throwing sessions with receivers, including veteran teammate Mohamed Sanu.

Adds Kittle: "He's got all the right attributes, and I'm just excited to see how he progresses in training camp."

DeForest Buckner on 49ers with Trey Lance: 'You kind of get that Baltimore Ravens kind of vibe'

Jimmy Garoppolo will probably start when the San Francisco 49ers host DeForest Buckner and the Indianapolis Colts at Levi's Stadium this weekend. For Buckner, it will be his first time stepping into the stadium since the 49ers traded him to the Colts last year. "It's definitely weird being on the other side, watching film on [them]," Buckner admits. "Obviously, they've got a bunch of new faces since I've been gone, but [also] a lot of similar faces on that side of the ball, a lot of guys that I call brothers and friends. It's weird, definitely. "I know it's going to feel weird once I get to the stadium, and get to the opponent's locker room, and little things like that. It's definitely going to be kind of weird, but I'm excited." While Buckner and



Greg Cosell has thoughts on why the 49ers ran Trey Lance so often in his first start

San Francisco 49ers players aren't around their Santa Clara headquarters right now because the team is on its bye week. However, they will return next week to begin preparations for the Indianapolis Colts. The off time is a good opportunity to listen to analysts like Greg Cosell, who joined KNBR today and shared his thoughts on rookie quarterback Trey Lance's first start this past weekend, a 17-10 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. What did the respected long-time analyst think of the 21-year-old's starting debut? Lance ran the football 16 times for 89 yards, which was a bit unexpected considering head coach Kyle Shanahan had said that fans could expect the rookie looking more like a quarterback and less like a running back in the game,



Steve Young says 49ers' Trey Lance is 'awesomely raw'

Hall-of-Fame quarterback Steve Young appeared on KNBR Radio for his weekly show to discuss the San Francisco 49ers. He had plenty to say about 49ers rookie quarterback Trey Lance, and his starting debut last Sunday in Arizona. "Well, I mean he is awesomely raw," Young told KNBR's 'Tolbert, Krueger and Brooks' on Wednesday. "There is some stuff, but you know it is moving very quickly. Quarterbacking is about coming to a place where no matter how crazy it is, how intense the moment -- it's how quiet your mind is. When your mind is quiet and you own the data, and you own the moment, then your body, that's when the measure of you as an athlete comes out. "It's a wonderful place to get to, but until it does you're always trying to get to manage your brain being
