To go back to Jimmy from Trey mid-season would kind of be putting the dagger in him would it not?very curious to see what happens if the Niners start 3-4 behind some sketchy QB play
In a week where just about every analyst has a take on the 49ers' quarterback situation, former NFL coach Sean Payton is siding with Jimmy Garoppolo.sports.yahoo.com
Payton foresees a scenario in which Garoppolo unseats Trey Lance and reclaims his role as the 49ers' starting quarterback this season.
"I think there are seven or eight teams that we’re gonna see, not because of injury, we’re gonna see more than one quarterback play," Payton said on the "The Herd" earlier this week. "I think, and I believe, don’t kid yourself, that we’re gonna see Garoppolo back in that lineup.”
The game has passed Mike Martz by.Mike Martz is NOT a fan of Lance. Also trashes Justin Fields so maybe he's just in a bad mood.
Former 49ers OC Mike Martz slams Trey Lance: 'I've never seen anything about this kid that was encouraging at all'There's ripping a guy, and then there's Mike Martz's take on Trey Lance.www.knbr.com
“I want their eyeballs,” Martz said of the 49ers. “I’ve never seen anything about this kid that was encouraging at all. He really has to plant himself to make a good throw. He’s not a quick decision guy. [Everything] about him being a mobile guy and making plays with his feet, he looked like a fullback stumbling around trying to run the ball to me. He’s not Lamar. I don’t know what he is. He’s not particularly good guy running with the football.
“Based on what I saw today he missed two guys completely by themselves. I know it was in the rain but quarterbacks do that, you make those throws. I know this, he can only go up, he can only get better, because you can’t get any worse that what he did [Sunday]. I’ve never liked him, I still don’t like him, I’d like to know what he does so well. Because he’s not a great passer, doesn’t have great skills, takes him a long time to set himself and throw the football, misses easy throws and he’s not a particularly good runner. Other than that he’s a hell of a player.”
The game has passed Mike Martz by.
Lance goes down with a gruesome ankle injury. Carted off the field. In comes Jimmy G and he leads them to a 20-0 lead going in to the third.
