Golden Nuggets: Shanahan explains what traits he likes about Lance
Kyle Shanahan spoke a little bit about quarterback competition and what he liked about Trey Lance on The Athletic’s Tim Kawakami podcast. It seemed obvious that Shanahan was a fan of Lance’s pocket-size presence and the fact that he only relied on his legs when forced to scramble.
Nate Burleson explains why he’s so fascinated with the 49ers in 2021
“I’m really curious what Kyle Shanahan is going to do in San Francisco because I’m really giving them a pass for last year,” Burleson told Rich Eisen on the Rich Eisen Show. “They treated the most (injured). They had the most guys in IR, and yet they fought throughout the season.
“Now you get all those healthy guys back,” Burleson continued, “but what’s going to happen at quarterback? I am fascinated by it. This selection of Trey Lance, even though we sort of thought Kyle Shanahan had the guts to do it, you still paid Jimmy Garoppolo over $ 100 million and took his team to a Super Bowl, and you go with it. Trey Lance? What does that tell you? It tells me he’s ready to leave Jimmy G.
List of 49ers: 4 players who increased their stock value during OTA 2021
# 3: 49ers offensive lineman Jaylon
According to Sacramento Bee’s Chris Biderman, the Niners have already had Moore lined up with the second-string unit on the left tackle, meaning they are working to give the rookie every chance he’ll need to secure a primary reserve job this season.
And in the wake of Justin Skule tearing his ACL, Moore’s chances of sticking around increase dramatically.
Moore will still have to compete with other deep linemen like Brunskill, Tom Compton, Shon Coleman and Colton McKivitz, among others. OTAs also ban any kind of serious contact, which means Moore is “having it easy” right now, at least physically.
Jimmy Garoppolo remains the 49ers’ QB starter, but Trey Lance has shot
“I really see it because Jimmy is the starter, but if Trey is ready to compete, I have no problem with that. I don’t just sit there and say, ‘Hey no, we’re not playing a rookie quarterback, we have to rest it the first year. “I don’t really make decisions like that until I really have an opinion on it, and that will change the way I see it in the camp,” Shanahan said. to Kawakami. “And if he happens and he plays at a high level and we think he gives us the best chance of winning, we won’t hesitate to do that. But like I said before for that to happen, that would be really tough for any rookie quarterback. Jimmy is a really good player, he doesn’t just come trying to beat a guy who’s never done it before. When Jimmy played, he did. played at a very high level, I thought Jimmy had as good an OTA as he has since he’s been here, it seems very relevant from a menta point of view l and physical and I know Trey is really going to have to be on it to push him.
Trey Lance gets off to a good start in 49ers training camp
Lance’s main goal in getting ready for training camp is to have a good understanding of the game manual. Shanahan won’t be able to throw him in various situations in training if he doesn’t absorb the offense. . Quarterback competition is not a guarantee. If Lance shows up and still needs a lot of things to fit in, then he’s out of luck. The next month and a half will be a big step for him in his potential to start this season.
For the sake of the 49ers, they need Lance to be ready to roll when training camp kicks off. Not only will this be a fantastic sign that Lance is doing well, but it will push Jimmy Garoppolo to be at his best. If a Super Bowl loss hasn’t motivated Garoppolo, his job and potentially his starting career overall should be able to give him that chip on his shoulder.
All of this ultimately makes the game of the 49ers.
