“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.

Charvarius Ward: 49ers secondary being overlooked; Brandon Aiyuk having a great camp

By David Bonilla
Aug 4

Charvarius Ward is a Super Bowl champion. Unfortunately for The Faithful, that championship win came against Kyle Shanahan and the San Francisco 49ers. However, Ward doesn't feel he had a great outing on February 2, 2020. A lot of that was because of Shanahan's creative offense. "That was one of the worst games of my career, though, because Kyle was calling some plays," Ward told NBC Sports Bay Area's 49ers Talk podcast. "There would be like six guys going right, but the ball was going to the left, so my eyes were all over the place. I was still young, my second year in the NFL. I was in the Super Bowl, and Kyle was just drawing up these crazy plays." Once Ward hit free agency, knowing the talent level of the team and its head coach, he wanted to join



49ers CB Charvarius Ward sidelined a couple of weeks with muscle strain, says Kyle Shanahan

The San Francisco 49ers will be without their big offseason acquisition, cornerback Charvarius Ward, for a couple of weeks. According to head coach Kyle Shanahan, who joined KNBR on Wednesday morning, Ward is dealing with a muscle strain and will miss some time ahead of the regular season. "He had a little setback here with a muscle strain, so he'll be out here for the next probably two weeks or so," Shanahan said on the Murph & Mac show. "But he's gotten enough baseline in to where his camp has been perfect. At least now I know he's not going to get a serious injury here in the next two weeks, and he'll be ready to go here Week 1, though." San Francisco signed Ward to a three-year, $40.5 million deal in March. Ward, 26, has recorded 222 tackles, a



Brandon Aiyuk: 'Enforcer' Deebo Samuel brings different energy to 49ers practice; Charvarius Ward a 'strong, physical corner'

Brandon Aiyuk spoke to reporters after Sunday's practice. The wide receiver is having a tremendous training camp in his third offseason with the San Francisco 49ers. Veteran safety Jimmie Ward has noticed a difference in the 24-year-old wideout, saying Aiyuk is one of this year's training camp standouts. That's high praise, considering the receiver's position a year ago. Aiyuk appeared to be a training camp disappointment last offseason, seemingly landing in head coach Kyle Shanahan's dog house and being limited to one catch for six yards in the 49ers' first two games. However, as the season progressed, the receiver turned things around and looks to be on course for a breakout



49ers' DeMeco Ryans, Jimmie Ward say Trey Lance is 'growing as a leader'

San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans spoke with reporters after Wednesday's practice. His unit is tasked with making sure second-year quarterback Trey Lance gets all the training camp looks necessary to prepare for the regular season. Ryans may coach the defensive stars on the 49ers roster, but that doesn't mean he doesn't interact with Lance. The coach shared what those brief conversations are like. "For me and my interactions with Trey, I just always try to encourage him," Ryans told the media. "I think he's been doing a great job. Anytime in passing with him, it's always just a word of encouragement to keep going because I think he is really doing a great job of really taking hold of our offense, leading those guys. "You just see
