Quick Takeaways

Jimmy Garoppolo earned an overall grade of 62.5, a drop from his 71.2 overall grade a week earlier. The quarterback finished the game 22-of-30 for 189 yards and a passing touchdown. He also had a rushing touchdown on a quarterback sneak. Rookie Trey Lance did not play.

The offensive line performed better as a whole when it comes to Pro Football Focus grades. That includes right tackle Mike McGlinchey, whose 70.3 overall grade was much improved over his 51.0 grade in Week 1.

Wide receiver Jauan Jennings played just six snaps but hauled in his first career touchdown on his first career reception. That helped his overall grade.

Defensive lineman Arik Armstead continues to put together a nice season for himself, as does D.J. Jones.

Rookie cornerback Deommodore Lenoir saw a jump from a 56.8 overall grade in Week 1 to a 76.2 grade against the Eagles. He could turn out to be the 49ers' best value pick of the draft.

After earning praise from general manager John Lynch and defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans and a respectable 61.0 overall grade for his Week 1 performance, linebacker Azeez Al-Shaair's grade plummeted to 29.3 in Week 2. Only Eagles defensive end Tarron Jackson earned a lower overall grade (28.0) in the game.

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan joined the I Am Athlete podcast and was asked about the process leading to the team selecting quarterback Trey Lance with the No. 3 overall draft pick last year. There was a lot of speculation surrounding who the 49ers were looking to draft after trading up from the No. 12 spot. Many felt Shanahan had targeted quarterback Mac Jones, while many fans scoffed at the idea. Jones was a target—along with Lance. "We did the trade so early that it made me feel good about it because I knew before we did it how I felt about the quarterbacks," Shanahan said,

Trey Lance didn't exactly have a great stat line during Thursday's training camp session for the San Francisco 49ers, but head coach Kyle Shanahan says Lance was correct when he said Thursday's practice was better than Wednesday's despite multiple interceptions by the team's quarterbacks. Lance threw one of those interceptions and completed seven of 15 passes throughout the practice, while backups Nate Sudfeld and Brock Purdy threw three combined picks, according to 49ers beat reporter Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area. But afterwards, Lance told reporters he was encouraged with
