49ers mailbag: Is Shanahan on the hot seat? Did the coach not want to draft Trey Lance? How's the interior OL look? And other questions answered

The San Francisco 49ers won...and lost on Sunday. The win came by beating the Seattle Seahawks, something the 49ers have not done much of over the last 10 years. The loss came when Trey Lance broke his ankle. He's believed to be lost for the season. It's been a rough first two weeks for 49ers fans. First there was the frustrating loss in Chicago, and now the injury to Lance. And to make matters worse, running back Ty Davis-Price sustained a high-ankle sprain that could sideline him for a few weeks. As you well know, Elijah Mitchell will already miss about two months with an MCL sprain. Injuries are beginning to mount. But fortunately for you, I'm fully healthy and ready to share this week's 49ers mailbag with you. Let's get to it. How many QBs

There has been much debate surrounding who is to blame for Trey Lance's season-ending ankle injury.

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
