Lance is now the man in the Bay Area, even though the 49ers have retained the experienced (and expensive) Jimmy Garoppolo to be his backup. Lance has an athletic dimension that Garoppolo doesn’t. Both his rocket arm and elite legs are obvious if you watch him play the position for more than five minutes. Even so, he barely participated in his rookie season, as Garoppolo maintained the starting job and very nearly got the Niners to the Super Bowl.
Lance will step into a pretty good situation this year, though. His coach, Kyle Shanahan, is one of the smartest offensive coaches alive. His left tackle, Trent Williams, is a Hall of Famer at the peak of his powers. Tight end George Kittle and receiver/running back/do-everything guy Deebo Samuel are two of the best players in the world. It’s reasonable to expect a big sophomore year for Lance.
