Anonymous 49ers players reportedly shot Trey Lance after suffering an injury

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance is out for the season and will need ankle surgery. With that, Jimmy Garoppolo was reinstated as a starter.

According to a report by Michael Silver of the San Francisco Chronicle, some 49ers players think this could be a good thing.

At least one anonymous 49ers player believes Garoppolo is giving the team a better chance of winning games right now. He might not be wrong, but as Lance’s teammate, players shouldn’t worry about him long-term health?

“That’s the part that nobody wants to say publicly, but something that several players and coaches explained privately after Sunday’s game — the 49ers are a better team right now with Garoppolo at quarterback than they are with Lance.” Michael Silver of the San Francisco Chronicle wrote.

Can the 49ers rebound with quarterback Trey Lance?

As talented as Lance is, it would always take him some time to come to terms with this offense. The first week plus didn’t go according to plan as Lance lost his first start of the season against the Chicago Bears and was just 30 yards down when he injured his ankle against Seattle.

Much of the talk about Lance’s injury has to do with Kyle Shanahan’s play-calling. Lance essentially ran right in the middle and took heavy hits. Was that a wise decision by the 49ers head coach, especially considering Lance is supposed to be the future of the franchise?

Sure, North Dakota State’s product is a formidable runner, but putting it at risk is ill-advised. He’s not built like that.

With Garoppolo, San Francisco is better placed to win right away. Jimmy G has been there before, and while he’s more talented than Lance as a passer at the moment, he’s already reached his limit.

That’s the gamble Shanahan took with a player of Lance’s caliber. At his best, Lance was able to change the entire scope of the Niners offense. Instead, it’s back to business as usual with Garoppolo.

Just the usual might be good enough to win the NFC West – and more. Anonymous 49ers players reportedly shot Trey Lance after suffering an injury
