Quick Takeaways


You may be wondering how Trey Lance graded out in his first NFL start. The rookie quarterback earned a respectable overall grade of 66.3 through his 65 snaps. For those curious, that's a higher grade than Jimmy Garoppolo earned in three of his four starts this season.

Tackle Trent Williams' 77.1 overall grade is his lowest of the season. Yet, he has still earned at least a top-three offensive grade among 49ers players in each of his five games, earning the highest grade this past weekend.

The highest overall grade in the game (49ers or Cardinals players) belongs to defensive lineman Arik Armstead. His 89.2 grade is by far his highest single-game grade of the season. Right behind him is Nick Bosa, who, aside from a dip in Week 2, has consistently impressed Pro Football Focus graders.

Earning the lowest grade of the game (49ers or Cardinals) was cornerback Josh Norman, who returned after missing a game due to a lung contusion. He was targeted seven times and gave up four receptions for 46 yards and a touchdown. Quarterback Kyler Murray owned a 116.7 passer rating while targeting Norman.

This past weekend's game marks just the second time this season that wide receiver Deebo Samuel (66.9) missed ranking among the 49ers' five highest-graded offensive players.

Rapoport explains Jimmy Garoppolo trade report, adds 49ers were offered a 3rd-rounder for the QB

Before Sunday's game between the San Francisco 49ers and Minnesota Vikings, NFL insider Ian Rapoport stated that, barring a Super Bowl run, the 49ers plan to trade veteran quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo this offseason and usher in the Trey Lance era in 2022. Of course, none of this is a surprise. That has seemingly been the plan since San Francisco made Lance the No. 3 overall draft pick in April. The report created a somewhat awkward situation after the 49ers' 34-26 win over the Vikings when one reporter asked Garoppolo if he heard about



49ers players comment on officiating in Seahawks loss: 'We've got to leave it out of the referees' hands'

It was a frustrating day on many fronts for the San Francisco 49ers during their 30-23 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, and the officiating during the game didn't exactly help. The 49ers were flagged 10 times for 86 yards during the game, with more than one of those penalties coming at a crucial time. There was also one key moment in particular where some observers felt there should have been a penalty on the Seahawks that wasn't called -- a play towards the end of the regulation when the 49ers were attempting to tie the game with a touchdown while Seahawks cornerback Sidney Jones was getting handsy with wide receiver Trent
