NFL analyst believes Jimmy Garoppolo starts for 49ers after hearing more about Trey Lance doubt
Ryan Harris, a former offensive lineman turned broadcaster and analyst, joined CBS Sports HQ to discuss the young quarterbacks of the San Francisco 49ers and Chicago Bears. He was asked which passer—Trey Lance or Justin Fields—finds himself in the best situation. Harris’ answer? Lance, who is on a roster coming off an NFC title game appearance.
However, there is one caveat to that answer.
“But I’m here to tell you, after people I’ve talked to, everyone I’ve spoken to expected Jimmy Garoppolo to start [Week 1 against the Bears],” Harris said.
There has been an offseason narrative that Trey Lance is not yet ready to step into the starting role for a team built to win now. Of course, those who follow the 49ers closely realize that if that
NFL analyst believes 49ers concerned about Trey Lance’s arm fitness
On Wednesday, David Bonilla, of 49ers Webzone, reported on comments made by Ryan Harris, a former offensive lineman turned broadcaster and analyst, who announced the latest in the “Trey Lance is a bust” world tour. The San Francisco 49ers’ young signal-caller has faced a barrage of questions and statements from national media, suggesting the second-year QB is not ready to be named the starter.
The fact that Jimmy Garoppolo is still on the 49ers roster doesn’t help. But the team has said they believe in Lance and that he’s progressing well. The continued national opinions and reports, however, have suggested the opposite.
I’m not worried about 49ers’ Trey Lance…and you shouldn’t be either
San Francisco 49ers fans are fed up, and rightfully so, at the way the team’s young quarterback Trey Lance is being treated in the media. For months now, there have been rumors and statements, mostly from national media types, designating Lance a bust, or suggesting the 49ers are concerned about him. As you’ll recall, Lance only played ten quarters of football last season.
Can ten quarters really tell us anything? Of course not. Especially when it comes to NFL rookies trying to play QB.
It’s baffling that this agenda is being pushed. But the ferocity at which it keeps coming is disturbing. Either the 49ers are allowing it because they believe it somehow gives them a competitive advantage, or they’re pushing it to keep Jimmy Garopollo a hot commodity on the trade
George Kittle impressed by Trey Lance’s progress, says 49ers QB benefitted from Jimmy Garoppolo
It isn’t easy to speculate on the development of Trey Lance during practices. Most of those criticizing the young quarterback were not watching him every day. One player who did watch Lance every day is his San Francisco 49ers teammate, George Kittle. The All-Pro tight end loves what he has seen from the now-22-year-old quarterback.
Lance is expected to be the 49ers’ starter come Week 1 of the upcoming season. However, the starter of the past four-and-a-half seasons, Jimmy Garoppolo, remains on the roster. Garoppolo is recovering from the shoulder surgery he underwent on March 8, so the 49ers can’t trade the veteran quarterback until he is medically cleared to throw again.
Kittle joined The Pat McAfee Show on Friday and was asked if Garoppolo remaining
