Peter Schrager Says Trey Lance “Made Giant Leaps” in Spring and Takes Lead Role

Stan Szeto – USA TODAY Sports

With Jimmy Garoppolo largely absent from the scene in San Francisco, Trey Lance has progressed to become the leader the 49ers need him to be at quarterback, according to Peter Schrager of FOX Sports and the NFL Network.

Schrager was a guest on the Pat McAfee Show on Wednesday and offered his thoughts on the current situation surrounding Garoppolo and Lance. As the 49ers (and possibly other interested teams) wait for Garoppolo to start pitching again after his offseason shoulder surgery, Schrager says Lance has won over his teammates with the way he’s adapted to his expected starting role.

“(Garoppolo) hasn’t been with the team,” Schrager said. “He was, for the most part, when he practiced, he was in Southern California. Trey Lance was with the team. Trey Lance ran the practices. Trey Lance ran the guys. Trey Lance pitched with wide receivers I don’t know if the train left the station to the point of saying “Who are you going to fight with Week 1?” Trey Lance has grown by leaps and bounds over the past few months, d “After what I was told, in terms of the playbook, but also in terms of the voice in the locker room. And with Jimmy gone, Trey really took that and was like, ‘ Okay, I’m the guy, follow me. And a lot of guys start following and saying, ‘Okay, this is going to be our future leader.'”

While Schrager’s news on Lance is positive regarding where the 49ers want their young quarterback to go in the season, there’s still a lot of uncertainty about what will happen with Garoppolo. It seems certain Garoppolo would prefer to play elsewhere in 2022, but Schrager thinks he may need to spend some time with the 49ers in late July and August to show his arm is fit before finding another team.

“I can see Jimmy being back in San Francisco and then finding something and trying to trade it during trade camp once he starts making those pitches,” Schrager said.

There was also a quick comment from Schrager on wide Deebo Samuel, who remains at an impasse with the 49ers over his future. Samuel hasn’t backed down on his request to be traded from the 49ers, but Schrager believes the team will continue to communicate with Samuel’s agent and try to find something that will at least provide a temporary solution.

“I think Deebo, they still have an open dialogue, and the hope is that the agent, Tory Dandy, and John Lynch can come to some kind of agreement where if it’s not an extension at this point at least we can understand we want Deebo to be part of it and he will get paid,” Schrager said.

More San Francisco 49ers news

Arik Armstead says Jimmy Garoppolo’s review is unfair and ‘expects great things’ from Trey Lance

The biggest storyline tied to the San Francisco 49ers before the offseason was the quarterback situation. The team was looking to move from its starter of the past four and a half seasons, Jimmy Garoppolo, to second-year quarterback Trey Lance, last year’s third pick. Deebo Samuel stole many offseason titles after asking to be traded. Still, the quarterback situation remains one of the most important storylines heading into the 2022 season. San Francisco is expected to trade Garoppolo in March, before the start of the new league year. However, Garoppolo undergoing off-season shoulder surgery cut off all talk with the other teams. Now the market has apparently dried up, so it will be interesting to see what the 49ers do as training camp approaches.

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance has started to get some serious media attention as many analysts endorse the 22-year-old’s potential as he enters his second season in the NFL. In a recent appearance on NFL Total Access, former Green Bay Packers wide receiver James Jones continued the trend, going so far as to compare Lance to his former quarterback, Aaron Rodgers. “I believe we are dealing with a real superstar [in Lance]like Patrick Mahomes and Aaron Rodgers,” Jones said. “We had a small sample of Aaron Rodgers, but all you heard in the locker room and people around Aaron was, ‘Wait.

While there are several success stories of rookies thriving right away in the NFL, there are some players, especially quarterbacks, whose learning curves require a bit more seasoning. Take Peyton Manning, who threw 28 interceptions in his first year before becoming one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time, for example. Earlier this week, PFF named ten players in the 2021 NFL Draft class who are under the most pressure to perform in Year 2, and unsurprisingly, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance was among them. of the group. Lance, who was selected third overall in the 2021 NFL Draft, played

Bruschi: 49ers’ Trey Lance has ‘most to prove’ among second-year QBs

Quarterbacks in the 2021 draft class will be linked and compared for a long time. Most received a significant amount of playing time during their rookie seasons. The one who didn’t was San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance. He started just two games and spent most of his first NFL season learning behind veteran Jimmy Garoppolo. The coming season, however, will be different. Lance is expected to become the 49ers’ full-time starter, with Garoppolo likely to be shipped from Santa Clara. An ESPN analyst believes Lance has the most to prove among the 2021 first-round quarterback class that also includes Trevor Lawrence, Zach Wilson, Justin Fields and Mac Jones. “He’s the one who has the most to prove because you almost have to prove his
