Colin Cowherd's 4 Reasons Why Trey Lance Will Succeed as 49ers Starting QB

Colin Cowherd: “Trey Lance is going to be a good NFL story for a lot of reasons and I think he should succeed. There’s not a lot of mystery and I think he should succeed for these four reasons… Number one – Kyle Shanahan’s system works for everybody. Matt Ryan was an MVP, Matt Schaub was a Pro Bowler. It works for EVERYBODY. Secondly, the Niners roster is a Super Bowl roster, two of the last three years they have been in the conference championship. Three, it’s a quarterback-friendly but not a quarterback-dependent system, it eases you in. And four, size, smarts, mobility, athleticism… he’s got a lot of traits and he checks a lot of boxes. The one he doesn’t – accurate thrower of the football. It’s not pretty and he’s completing like 57% of his throws. Can he get to 62.5? Then you can make it. My guess on Trey Lance is he will be the third best quarterback in his division this year [Stafford, Murray], and that’s fine in a quarterback’s first year of playing, Mac Jones and Justin Fields would have been too if they drafted them. The question isn’t if this was a bad pick, they needed a quarterback, they felt Garoppolo was not dependable physically. Delivering the ball accurately is a huge thing for quarterbacks, so I don’t think he will be a superstar, he’ll be the third-best quarterback in the division for the foreseeable future, but I will say all the quarterbacks taken have been exactly what we predicted. Trevor Lawrence was gifted but can he overcome the Jags? Zach Wilson – flashy, hero ball, makes a lot of mistakes, but fun to watch. Mac Jones, low ceiling but perfect fit and he will be good early. We said Justin Fields and Trey Lance have got all the traits, they’re great athletes, but can they be great distributors of the football? Right now we don’t necessarily know the answer to either.” (Full Segment Above)
