Analyzing 49ers QB Trey Lance's rookie season so far

By Rohan Chakravarthi
Oct 14

When the 49ers drafted Trey Lance at No. 3 overall, I thought that he was specifically for 2022, because I felt the inconsistencies with his accuracy in college just needed to be fixed, similar to Josh Allen when he came out of the draft. Well, the inevitable happened, as Jimmy Garoppolo suffered a calf strain in San Francisco's Week 4 loss to Seattle, paving the way for Lance to make his first career start. Up to now, Lance is 25-of-48 for 354 yards, with three touchdowns, and an interception through the air, while also rushing 27 times for 133 yards and a touchdown. So, where does that place Lance? Well, in the limited sample size, Lance has primarily been what was expected, and then some. Coming out of college, Lance was a player



49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan believes he's yet to find a consistent play-calling rhythm this season

By Kirk Larrabee

Six games into the 2021 season, 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan says he has still yet to have a game where he's truly found a groove from a play-calling perspective. The 49ers have had their inconsistencies on offense throughout the season, with their 30-18 loss to the Indianapolis Colts in Week 7 being the latest example. The offense got off to a strong start against the Colts with a touchdown on the opening drive followed by two field goals before the end of the first quarter, but from there they went into a funk that saw them put together seven failed possessions before finding the end zone one more time in the fourth quarter. Shanahan was asked in his postgame press conference if he felt he's gotten into a play-calling rhythm for an entire game at any point

As expected, quarterback Trey Lance is rejoining his San Francisco 49ers teammates today during practice, said head coach Kyle Shanahan. However, the rookie passer will be limited as he continues to recover from the knee sprain that left him inactive for Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts. "We're going to put him in a couple of reps there on scout team and see how he feels moving around and stuff," Shanahan said. "See how he does in individual [drills], and see how it goes that way. Then, if it feels alright and no soreness after practice, we'll pick it up tomorrow." Lance suffered the injury during Week 5's loss against the Arizona Cardinals, a game the 21-year-old quarterback started in place of an injured Jimmy Garoppolo. Lance completed 15 of 29
