The GM Shuffle: Trey Lance’s disappointing performance, rookie QBs debut

Hosts Michael Lombardi and Femi Abebefe break down 49ers QB Trey Lance’s uninspiring performance along with what they saw from the rookie QBs’ debuts.

Trey Lance’s highly anticipated return from a broken ankle that ended his 2022 season was far from perfect. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback’s stat line looks fine — completing 10 of 15 passes, including a touchdown — but the third-year passer tossed multiple interceptable passes and struggled through his reads.

Despite Lance’s inexperience, he’s shown little signs of improvement. Is it time to worry in the Bay Area? Should the Niners look to move on and keep Brock Purdy and Sam Darnold as the team’s quarterbacks?

Hosts Michael Lombardi and Femi Abebefe break down Lance’s performance, and how the rookie QBs — Bryce Young, C.J. Stroud, Anthony Richardson and Will Levis — looked in their NFL debuts.
