“We all trust in Trey”: Charvarius Ward says 49ers’ Lance will be a great NFL QB

Aug 4, 2022 at 9:03 AM--


In June, new San Francisco 49ers cornerback Charvarius Ward declared that quarterback Trey Lance is "going to show the world this season."

Ward has only been in the NFL for four seasons. However, he knows a thing or two about great quarterbacks. He spent those four seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs, watching one of the best in the game—Patrick Mahomes.

Of course, reporters wanted to ask Ward to compare Lance to Mahomes. The talented cornerback offered a humorous response.

"Patrick, both of them going to be great quarterbacks," Ward answered. "They light-skinned great quarterbacks. That's the similarities."

The topic of Lance came up again this week as Ward joined NBC Sports Bay Area's 49ers Talk podcast. Matt Maiocco asked about going up against an established star like Mahomes and now a younger quarterback like Lance.

"When I got there, he was already a legend in the making," Ward said of Mahomes. "He was already making those crazy no-look passes. In practice, he'll make a behind-the-back pass sometimes. What Pat Mahomes does is incredible.

"It's probably kind of unfair to Trey to compare him to Pat right now because Pat has been to two Super Bowls. He has started like four or five seasons already. And this is Trey's first season of really being QB1. I feel like he's about to show everybody what he's capable of doing.

"He's got to work. He's got to grow. All us got to do that. But I feel like Trey is going to be a great quarterback in the NFL. He's got a good head on his shoulders. He's confident in himself just like I'm confident in myself, and we all believe in him. We all trust in Trey."

You can listen to the entire conversation with Ward below.

Orlovsky says 49ers not a championship-caliber team with Jimmy Garoppolo, expresses concern for Trey Lance

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers' Super Bowl odds saw a slight boost thanks to a Week 2 win and the switch at quarterback. Jimmy Garoppolo replaces starter Trey Lance, who suffered a broken ankle in the Niners' 27-7 win over the Seattle Seahawks and will undergo season-ending surgery today. Keeping Garoppolo on a restructured one-year deal now seems like the 49ers' best offseason move. Once seen as an unnecessary luxury, holding onto the veteran quarterback keeps the team competitive this season. One ESPN analyst, Dan Orlovsky, doesn't agree with oddsmakers, though. He doesn't believe the 49ers are better equipped to make a championship run with Garoppolo at the



49ers QB Trey Lance could make full recovery within 10 to 12 weeks, says surgeon

Trey Lance will likely head to injured reserve soon. On Monday, the quarterback underwent what most assumed to be season-ending surgery to repair the damage suffered when he broke his ankle against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 2. On a conference call with reporters this week, head coach Kyle Shanahan sounded pretty confident that Lance would be ready to go for Week 1 of the 2023 season. One expert isn't so sure the injury is season-ending, though. Foot and ankle surgeon Dr. Kenneth Jung, a consultant to the Los Angeles Rams, believes Lance could be fully healed within 10 to 12 weeks. Assuming the lengthier estimated recovery time, that might make him available after Week 14. However, the shorter estimate could mean Lance is healthy after Week



How 49ers GM John Lynch responded to criticisms of Trey Lance

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch is a Hall of Fame safety who spent his playing days knocking out those who challenged him, so he's not necessarily someone you would want to cross. Yet, some high-profile individuals have come out and criticized the team's choice of quarterback—Trey Lance. The most vocal criticisms this week came from former NFL coach Mike Martz. "I've never seen anything about this kid that was encouraging at all," Martz said during a podcast appearance. "He really has to plant himself to make a good throw. He's not a quick decision guy. Everybody's shot in the rear about him for being a mobile guy making plays with his feet – he



49ers' Kyle Shanahan hopes Trey Lance's versatility becomes a significant advantage

By David Bonilla

Trey Lance ran the football 13 times for 54 yards in the San Francisco 49ers' regular-season opener against the Chicago Bears. A handful of those runs were by design. Unfortunately, they weren't enough to pull out a win, with the 49ers losing 19-10. Shanahan hopes Lance's versatility becomes a significant advantage moving forward, though. He wants to keep defenses on their toes and guessing what the 49ers offense might do on any given play. Even when it seems like Lance might pass, his threat of taking off with the football can change how a defense reacts. "That's his advantage, and that's what he's got to keep," Shanahan told NBC Sports Bay Area this week. "I mean, that's what gives him an advantage in this league, when you are a threat to run, even though you
