Passing stats for 49ers QBs Jimmy Garoppolo, Trey Lance through five practices

Aug 3, 2021 at 10:13 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers have gone through five practices in training camp. Today's will be the first padded session, so expect things to get a little more physical.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan insists there is no quarterback competition brewing in Santa Clara. Jimmy Garoppolo is still slated to be the starter come Week 1 against the Detroit Lions.

"What I told Jimmy right when we made the trade is, 'I don't know any rookie who can come and beat you out if you're playing at his best self,'" Shanahan told Peter King last week.

The 49ers drafted Trey Lance out of North Dakota State with the No. 3 overall pick. The rookie is the quarterback of the future, but he is still finding his NFL footing and learning the offense. So far, he has looked good in training camp, but Shanahan insists that doesn't change the plan for the upcoming season.

"Jimmy's our starter because he's our best quarterback right now," Shanahan told NFL Network's Steve Mariucci this weekend. "And obviously, we think a lot of Trey, and that's why we invested what we did."

All eyes have been on the performances of Garoppolo and Lance, with most waiting to see if the rookie can somehow show enough flashes to warrant consideration for a competition between the two. For now, it has been Garoppolo working with the first-team offense and Lance working with the twos, as you would expect.

With that in mind, Cam Inman of Bay Area News Group has been keeping copious practice notes and logged the practice statistics for each quarterback. They are below.

Garoppolo: 39-of-62, 3 INT
Lance: 36-of-56, 1 INT

Two of Garoppolo's three interceptions came during Saturday's practice. The other came on Monday. Linebacker Fred Warner was the recipient of one on each day.

Lance's lone interception came on Monday, courtesy of linebacker Jonas Griffith.

Lions preparing for both Jimmy Garoppolo and Trey Lance in opener vs. 49ers

Kyle Shanahan's magic has finally started to hit the NFL. After last week's preseason finale against the Raiders, where Shanahan employed the veteran Jimmy Garoppolo and rookie Trey Lance on the same drive, there has been buzz about whether that strategy could be seen in the regular season. And, it seems like teams are preparing for it, as the two quarterbacks have vastly different play styles, which will only stress out defenses more. The Detroit Lions, San Francisco's Week 1 matchup, are one of those teams. When asked about the quarterbacks, new Lions head coach Dan Campbell said that his team is planning for both quarterbacks, per



Alex Mack: 'It'll be interesting to see' how the 49ers use Jimmy Garoppolo and Trey Lance vs. Lions

Assuming Trey Lance is available for Week 1, the Detroit Lions have a tough task preparing for the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. While Jimmy Garoppolo is expected to be the starter, the No. 3 overall pick could see the field. Again, assuming he is healthy. Lance suffered a chipped bone in his finger on August 29 during the 49ers' preseason finale against the Las Vegas Raiders. As a result, he has been limited during practices and hasn't been allowed to throw footballs. That was again the case during today's practice. The team's next practice is scheduled for Wednesday, as the real prep work for the Lions kicks off. Against the Raiders, the 49ers repeatedly swapped between Garoppolo and Lance during the first two drives, causing some confusion for the opposing

Trey Lance is among the San Francisco 49ers players still dealing with an injury. The rookie quarterback suffered a chipped bone in the index finger of his throwing hand during the team's preseason finale against the Las Vegas Raiders on August 29. Lance will be limited today, but head coach Kyle Shanahan hopes the rookie can get a little more work in as the team prepares for its regular-season opener against the Detroit Lions. The coach was asked if Lance can take snaps and throw the football now. He wasn't doing so during Monday's practice. "I think so," Shanahan responded. "Yeah, we'll see out there today. But yeah, he should be able to do everything. We'll see how he feels when he does it, though." Lance was later shown throwing



ESPN simulation has 49ers, Trey Lance finishing strong, Seahawks starting 0-9

The start of the 2021 NFL season is just days away, and everyone is making last-minute efforts to predict the outcome. That includes ESPN, which ran its annual Football Power Index (FPI) simulation of the entire 285-game schedule 20,000 times to project what will happen. ESPN used the simulations to predict the win total for each team and give a good idea of who might win Super Bowl 56 at SoFi Stadium in February. What happens in the NFC West, according to the simulation? The San Francisco 49ers start strong with a 4-1 record, tied for the best among the NFC. The Rams also start 4-1 while the Arizona
