Prisco on 49ers and Jimmy Garoppolo: ‘I don’t think Trey Lance is ready...I wouldn’t trade him’

ESPN's Adam Schefter doesn't believe the San Francisco 49ers trading Jimmy Garoppolo this offseason should be considered "a lock," pointing to the possibility that last year's No. 3 overall pick, Trey Lance, might not be as ready as some think.

Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports calls the interest in Garoppolo "lukewarm."

Another CBS Sports writer, Pete Prisco, doesn't believe the 49ers should trade Garoppolo at all. He also has doubts about Lance's progress. The 21-year-old quarterback spent all of last season backing up Garoppolo and started just two games while playing 178 total offensive snaps.

That means that Lance, who had just one full collegiate season as a starter with NDSU and played in one game during the 15 months leading to last year's draft, has just 19 starts under his belt since high school.

"Would I trade him? Probably not," Prisco said on CBS Sports HQ. "I don't think Trey Lance is ready, but I understand where they're at. They traded up to go get Trey Lance, and they think they can plug him in there and get him going with a full offseason and the ability to learn the offense. So, I understand why. I wouldn't trade him. I'd play Jimmy Garoppolo one more year."

However, what Prisco would do himself and what he expects to happen differ. Along with most people, the writer believes San Francisco will part ways with their starting quarterback of the past four-and-a-half seasons.

"But he will be traded. And where does he go? I think there's some interesting possibilities. I think when you look at Washington, I think that's a possibility. They have to upgrade their quarterback position. I think Pittsburgh is a possibility. And if I were Tampa, I'd explore Jimmy Garoppolo because I think he's better than Blaine Gabbert.

Prisco added, "I do think he will be traded, though."

49ers' Kyle Shanahan: "It's hard to be on the field with us if you don't block"

The San Francisco 49ers passing game isn't only full of weapons, it's full of unselfish weapons. Greg Papa sat down with 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan on the latest edition of NBC Sports Bay Area's "49ers Game Plan" on Friday and discussed some of his offensive stars, and the unselfishness of these players who are willing to block for each other. Papa noted that blocking is part of tight end George Kittle's game, but he also pointed out that Brandon Aiyuk, Deebo Samuel, and Christian McCaffrey all block well. Shanahan confirmed that his players take a lot of pride in blocking for one another and don't want to let each other down. Shanahan said, "And also if they do, they know we're all going to watch it together on Friday, which is when we do it and people don't like that. But

Where does the 2023 San Francisco 49ers offense rank among the franchise's greatest? Based on what they did in Philadelphia last Sunday, scoring a touchdown on six consecutive possessions, they should be considered among the best in team history.
