The offense of the San Francisco 49ers won’t dramatically change for one start.
Trey Lance, the third overall pick in April’s draft, takes over for Jimmy Garoppolo today against the undefeated Arizona Cardinals, and when Garoppolo is healthy, he gets his job back. This much Kyle Shanahan, head coach, has made clear . It’s possible that Lance will only be there for a week, and Jimmy G will return from his calf contusion next Monday.
It’s an amazing opportunity to take a closer look at the first-round quarterback who hasn’t yet started.
What’s his future look like? John Beck, who was with Lance through the draft, says it will only be a glimpse into the future.
” I know that the coaches want Trey as Trey. He is very athletic and dynamic.” Beck, a well-respected QB trainer, said Beck. Dedeaux is the CEO of 3DQB, California. He will incorporate those elements into his game plan. They’ll run the game he is comfortable with. They are going to use what plays he is confident in. “
The 6-foot-4, 224-pound Lance has already gotten his feet wet. To start, a touchdown pass was made in the opener. Two more were added last week to replace Garoppolo, who was injured. These will all help to ease nerves as his team faces Arizona.
” It’s amazing for a QB that has already felt that,” Beck stated, “before his first NFL start.” “
Shahanan announced the decision on Friday by emphasizing familiarity. They’ll do Lance’s best work, but they will not go against the rules.
” You don’t want too many new things to be made,” Shanahan stated. It’s only been a few days and we want to make sure that he is as comfortable as possible. “
It won’t be significantly different. However, San Fran will benefit from Lance’s athleticism which Garoppolo might not have.
” There will be some wrinkles that will have to be Trey Lance,” Beck stated. Beck said that he has elements of athleticism, misdirection and other qualities because of his college experience in the RPO game. The 49ers will be the 49ers. However, it’ll be weaved in like tiny threads. “
Lance has been working hard on his fundamentals, timing his steps and getting the ball out on-time, from draft prep to now. He has been improving his readings and processing. He’s actually working on his brain, which is one reason the 49ers drafted.
All parts of the package we’ll be seeing today.
“He is a good processor of information,” Beck stated. Beck said that Beck is athletic enough to be able to move about and navigate the system as they wish. He can use his feet to make plays in the game. All that he can do on the field is his. “
Even if it’s just one game, 49ers can get a glimpse today.
