Watch: Trey Lance wows fans with deep TD pass to Danny Gray in 49ers-Vikings joint practice

Aug 17, 2022 at 9:18 AM--


San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance connected on a deep 76-yard touchdown pass to rookie wide receiver Danny Gray during last week's preseason opener against the Green Bay Packers. It appears the connection was not an anomaly, as Lance and Gray connected again during Wednesday morning's joint practice with the Minnesota Vikings at the TCO Performance Center in Eagan, Minnesota. The rookie wideout was going against Vikings cornerback Patrick Peterson.

Here are three perspectives on the deep touchdown pass from practice. The first shows the throw and catch on the field in the distance at the end of the video.


The second is a better look from Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle.


Here is another angle from Matt Barrows of The Athletic.


After the preseason game against the Packers, Lance shared what he was thinking on the touchdown pass to Gray.

"Throw it to the fast guy," Lance said. "Danny did a great job. He's done a great job all camp. Just him being healthy, obviously, he's a difference maker for us on offense. His speed is something I've had maybe one other time in my life (Christian Watson at NDSU). So for me, it's a fun guy to have -- a fun guy for the receiver room to have also. Just help the route tree out and make defenses defend the whole field."

The 49ers and Vikings will hold a second joint practice on Thursday. Their preseason matchup is scheduled for Saturday evening at U.S. Bank Stadium.

49ers-Bears: How Kyle Shanahan, Trey Lance, Nick Bosa reacted to disappointing Week 1 loss

By David Bonilla

Well, that was disappointing to watch. Not just for fans but the San Francisco 49ers. Head coach Kyle Shanahan watched as his team surrendered a 10-point lead and suffered a second-half collapse to the Chicago Bears. The matchup many felt would be a gimme for the Niners in their opener ended in a 19-10 defeat and an 0-1 start to the season. What was Shanahan's message to his team after the game? The coach didn't see anything wrong with his players' efforts. There were just too many costly mistakes on which Chicago ended up capitalizing. "First thing, it starts out with is the intent and how hard everybody goes," Shanahan said. "I never felt anything wrong with that throughout the game, but you're not going to win a lot of games when you miss those opportunities



49ers QB Trey Lance says he 'made too many mistakes' in loss to Bears

Trey Lance kept his head up after losing his first start as the San Francisco 49ers' No. 1 quarterback, but it's obvious he felt at least somewhat responsible for his team's collapse in their 19-10 loss to the Bears at Soldier Field in Chicago on Sunday. Lance was far from the only 49ers player to make costly miscues in the loss, as the 49ers committed 12 penalties to go with a number of other unforced errors while blowing a 10-point second half lead after being in control for much of the game. But Lance provided a laundry list of mistakes in his media session after the game, blaming himself for a key turnover, a few missed throws (most notably an overthrow of tight end Tyler Kroft on a possible scoring play in the first half) and a sack that may have taken points off the



Jerry Rice: Trey Lance not to blame for 49ers' loss to Bears

Don't put all the blame from Sunday's Week 1 loss to the Chicago Bears on the shoulders of Trey Lance. That was the message from Hall of Fame wide receiver and San Francisco 49ers icon Jerry Rice during his weekly interview on 95.7 The Game. "I'm sure Trey, he would love to have that interception back," Rice said on The Morning Roast. "He missed a couple of throws; the one he overthrew to the tight end. But I felt like he played OK. I feel like he did enough to win that football game. And you've got to look at what happened with the Chicago Bears. They sort of won that game the last five minutes left in that ballgame." Lance finished the game 13-of-28 for 164 yards, an interception, and a passer rating of 50.3. While he started two games last season in a



"I've never liked him": Mike Martz slams 49ers QB Trey Lance

In case there was any doubt, or if anyone really cared, former NFL coach Mike Martz made his feelings about San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance very clear. He is not a fan and never was. During a recent appearance on the 33rd Team podcast, Martz, who spent 2008 as the Niners' offensive coordinator, discussed Lance's performance on Sunday against the Chicago Bears. The former coach didn't hold any punches and slammed the second-year player. "I've never seen anything about this kid that was encouraging at all," Martz said, per Alex Espinoza of 95.7 The Game. "He really has to plant himself
