Golden Nuggets: More details come out about Tom Brady wanting to join the 49ers

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ Your daily San Francisco 49ers links for Saturday, October 16, 2021 I expect the 49ers to name Jimmy Garoppolo as the quarterback not only for Sunday’s game for the remainder of the season. Then, I expect there to be some backlash. If I were the head coach, I’d start Trey Lance. That would have been to begin the season, though. The 49ers are in a place where they have to win. Jimmy Garoppolo likely gives San Francisco the best chance to win “today,” which is how all NFL coaches think: in the now. The Colts are not a good football team and...

49ers rookie report: Elijah Mitchell showed why he’s the starting running back

49ers rookie report: Elijah Mitchell showed why he’s the starting running back

Photo by Norm Hall/ Plus, a breakdown of Trey Lance The 49ers 2021 rookie class saw its most snaps played of the season, and that’s no coincidence as Trey Lance started the first game of his young NFL career. So let’s talk about how the rookies performed and assign grades to them. QB Trey Lance: B- All things considered, Lance played well. He’s not being graded on the same curve as Jimmy Garoppolo because Lance is a 21-year-old who played with the starters in practice extensively for the first time last week. The positives? His athleticism, live arm, and passing...

Golden Nuggets: Joe Staley believes the 49ers are more exciting with Trey Lance at QB

Photo by Christian Petersen/ Your daily San Francisco 49ers links for Wednesday, October 13, 2021 Everyone has their takes on Trey Lance while most fans are wondering what’s going on with Brandon Aiyuk. Those are the main talking points in today’s links. Joe Staley: Jimmy Garoppolo will start, but 49ers are more exciting with Trey Lance “I mean, I found myself very excited to watch this game,” Staley added. “I think when you look at the quarterback situation, you know what you’re going to get out of Jimmy. He has the understanding of the offense, and I think...

Shanahan defends Trey Lance’s decision to run on 49ers big fourth down

Shanahan defends Trey Lance’s decision to run on 49ers big fourth down

Chris Coduto-USA TODAY Sports The 49ers head coach defended Trey Lance’s decision to run for the endzone on a big fourth down in Sunday’s 17-10 loss to the Cardinals. 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan was asked several questions about quarterback Trey Lance’s performance in the team’s 17-10 loss to the Cardinals during his media availability on Monday. While most of the questions focused on Lance’s knee sprain and whether the rookie played well enough to surpass Jimmy Garoppolo as the Niners’ permanent starter, Shanahan was also asked about Lance’s decision...

Winners and losers from the 49ers/Cardinals: It was a rough day for Josh Norman

Photo by Christian Petersen/ D.J. Jones and Arik Armstead were outstanding For the third week in a row, the 49ers had ample opportunities to win and came up short. Whenever I re-watch the game, I always learn or pick up something I missed on Sunday. The defensive effort was great, but far too many missed tackles bailed the Cardinals out. Trey Lance performed better than I initially thought, while the offensive line was much worse. Lance shouldn’t have to worry about running for his life. Let’s say it’s Jimmy Garoppolo. No matter who is under center, the line must...

49ers in Five: Kyle Shanahan says “nothing has changed” at quarterback

Photo by Christian Petersen/ The 49ers head coach spoke about who his starting quarterback is moving forward Sunday was an up-and-down day for Trey Lance and the 49ers’ offense. On some plays, we saw the freakish athleticism that has optimists dreaming of a dynamic playmaker, while on others, we saw the inconsistency that has pessimists worried about long-term production. Basically, if you want Trey Lance to play, you were encouraged; if you fall into Jimmy Garoppolo’s corner, you were discouraged. Kyle Shanahan was asked after the game if he will consider making a...

49ers vs. Cardinals injury report:

The 49ers will be without Jimmy Garoppolo, George Kittle, and K’Waun Williams today. Each of those three are key starters. Trey Lance will take Jimmy’s spot. There’s no replacing Kittle, while Dontae Johnson has primarily played in the slot in Williams’ absence. Javon Kinlaw and Samson Ebukam were questionable heading into this game. Kinlaw has battled a knee injury dating back to training camp, but he practiced Friday. The good news is Elijah Mitchell and Josh Norman are both active and should potentially start. The 49ers promoted Travis Benjamin on Saturday from the...
