I wouldn’t rule out Sam Darnold.   The early buzz on him is said to be very good. 

Correct... As the system is QB friendly, and run game doesn't require QB to do much heroics, not to mention very good defense, it's a QB's dream place to start.

 

As Purdy seems to need time to get healthy, word is that Darnold should start. If he can't play well there too, his NFL career would be in jeopardy. If he does well enough to keep them in play-off race, There will be some positive headache to worry about what to do with all those QBs.

 

I think @NFLfan has expressed good faith in Darnold in the past, I don't think too highly of him but he could be serviceable. 

 

Let's see if Darnold can stay off from the QB injury curse that's in SFO.

Yes, I like Darnold. I think he would succeed with Shanahan. He needs a stable situation. He has not had it. 

 

I would love it if the Vikings could trade Kirk for Darnold and a draft pick. I'm not sure about Lance, as he may make too much money and he is coming off a major injury. The 49ers are good enough that they could possibly win a championship with Kirk. The good part about Kirk is that he never misses time with an injury. But, the Vikings need to rebuild and could use a young QB whose salary is low.

Personally, I think Sam Darnold stinks whos your daddy dancing GIF

That sound you heard was my jaw dropping to the floor!!

 

I had forgotten about Sam Darnold - BUT - given the "King's Ransom" that the Niner's gave up to get Trey Lance - I don't know HOW they choose Darnold over Lance.

 

BUT - time will tell - and - it would be very very telling as to whether the Niner's made one of the biggest "whiffs" in the NFL draft history in Trey Lance.

UPDATE:  Brock Purdy has been fully cleared to begin training camp practices.

 

It will be VERY interesting to see if Purdy ends up the 2023 starter instead of Trey Lance - whom the Niners paid a kings ransom for the opportunity to draft.

Purdy should get the nod honestly for the start of the season if he's healthy. He earned it. 

 

I don't know what to make of Trey Lance. They gave up a lot to get him and don't really have much to show for it. Plus he hasn't given other teams enough tape to increase his capital. That situation is kind of a mess... Or maybe it's a blessing for the 49ers?

B. Purdy if he's healthy. AdamShefter reported on the P. McAfee Show last week there was no trade market for T. Lance. 

No surprise there.

 

They paid a "kings ransom" for Trey Lance and have gotten bupkis in return.  It honestly wouldn't surprise me if they cut Trey Lance.

SO - which QB do you think will start for the San Francisco 49ers the majority of the upcoming season?

 

Brock Purdy

Trey Lance

 

Purdy.

 

Why did you not include Sam Darnold? He has a chance to start too.

 

Lance has not done anything to merit the start. Has he played in any games? Darnold has played in many games but he needs better coaching.

Honestly - I think that "super bust" Trey Lance is on his way out the door.

 

Brock Purdy starts and Sam Darnold is the backup - in my humble opinion.

He is very young. 23 or so. Some team will pick him up.

 

A Vikings fans wrote that Lance has very little experience. He reportedly has fewer than 600 passes in college and the NFL.

Late reply but you are correct. Lance had just over 300 pass attempts in college, and only 99 in high school. What's more, they were against bad competition. He played at NDSU, not exactly a powerhouse school in a good conference.

 

 

I think the big issue with Lance (like with most QBs who bust) is circumstance. He got injured and never recovered from that. But it didn't help that Shanahan never created an offense that played to his strengths. Shanahan tried to force him into a scheme that didn't really fit him. Now it's not only Shanahan's fault because Lance had some serious improvements he had to make. I know people said AR was raw but Lance is actually raw. No experience and no mechanics at all.

Good post above. Richardson looks a lot more poised than Lance. Lance needed more time in college. Did he succeed Wentz at North Dakota State?

No, Wentz was drafted in 2016 and Lance played at NDSU from 2018-2020. Not a North Dakota State fan so I couldn't tell you who played between 2016-2018. Lance definitely needed more time in college. I remember he had that one ridiculous season where he went 42 TDs:0ints (against bad competition of course) and everyone was hyping him up. Then it was the Covid year and he sat out.

Anyone calling for the 49’ers GM to be sacked over the Trey Lance fiasco?  Three 1st round picks for that bust.

And a 3rd.

 

 

But no, Lynch is safe. Think he has earned some leeway.

He isn’t a bust. Unfortunate circumstances that have been no fault of his own. He got that starting job last year and got injured. Then got Wally pipped by Purdy. Then add he doesn’t fit what Kyle wants to do.  Hopefully he lands on his feet.

LOL.  Nah.  He’s a bust.  Zero return on the investment.

Name a GM that is perfect. Did that trade set the franchise back? Nope! A SB, a couple conference championships with a lot of talent to go along with a consistent top 5 defense, and potential franchise QB in Purdy during Lynch's 6 seasons. The continues to look bright in 49er land.

49ers are well ran but I am not sold on Purdy. 7 good-great games is a small sample size. Lynch has built well in other area's. Had we had the same success as them since 2019, there would still be fans that would be critical of Ballard and our team. Reason being = no SuperBowl wins. A lot of people in here are enamored by what the Titans accomplished between 2019-2021 in those 3 years, we accomplished just as much from 2012-2014 with Luck and many were critical of the Colts, hardly giving them any credit and we had to deal with the Patriots. We set the bar so high with Peyton is why IMO. Until the Colts won a SB with Peyton, we were called chokers and look at how that core dominated for years even before we won it all.

Just a question…thanks!

Lance just got traded to the cowboys for a 4th round pick.

I watched a bit of ESPN, which I usually do not do.   They were talking bad talking bad about jerry Jones for not talking to Prescott before the trade.  

Why would he do that?   He traded for a backup QB.

    • Yea my bad, i finished it and lazily didnt feel like changing it before submitting. 🥴 I will probably make another change or 2 and repost a final version by draft day anyways, so…
    • One thing I have never done is meet Peyton Manning. I have been to around 50 home games during my Fandom from 1987-2013 regarding going to games. I met Jim Harbaugh and got his autograph when I went to the Chargers game in 1996. He chatted with me for around 2 or 3 minutes. Called me Bud over and over and was so nice and he kept smiling at my mom  . I was only 25 then. Just going to the Masters alone had to be a treat but talking to Peyton had to be the cherry on top. Great stuff man.
    • I just thought I would take this opportunity to brag a bit about the fact that I had the opportunity to chat with Peyton at the Masters last week for about 5 minutes.  Truly a bucket list experience and I must say, he has the Southern Hospitality that one might expect but wow- did not expect to run into him and it was quite the experience.  It just had to be the one place left on earth where cell phones are banned, so no picture opportunity unfortunately.   I told Peyton that my first Colts experience was riding to Buffalo in a blizzard when the Colts were 14-0 and they benched him only to lose that game. I said thanks for my first Colts experience being one where he was riding the pine.  He laughed, apologized to me and said that if it was up to him he would have been checking down in that snow storm for 4 quarters.  He thanked me for the support, and was asking me a bit about myself, where I am from, etc.  Quite the gentleman! I think it was obligatory for him to be nice to patrons while he was wearing his Green Jacket, but none the less....a great experience meeting a childhood hero. Lynn Swann walked up to us while we were talking and shook Peyton's hand.  I joked that now was the perfect time for a 10 yard slant- and then slid into the bushes like Homer Simpson with humility.    Unforgettable experience everyone!   Would love to hear some of your Peyton stories from over the years, since it is a bit of a slow time of year before the draft! Let it fly Colts fans  
    • I agree.  I think this is another one of those over-hyped QB classes that will probably never perform to the level of the hype. But -- teams still need a quarterback.  And will convince themselves that that must take one of these quarterbacks.  That it's the only solution to their problem.  If I was forced to choose, I would probably go with Heisman winner Jayden Daniels.  I'm concerned that Caleb Williams may have some personality issues to go with his lack of measurables, even though he shows strong ability to improvise.  Drake Maye has the measurables, but I have questions regarding the level of opposition playing at UNC.  It's not the same as playing the equivalent of the Crimson Tide every single week.  JJ McCarthy is "good".  And he's been successful.  He led his team to a BCS championship.  And?  I see him in the same mold as AJ McCarron.  Supremely successful in college, but not good enough to be The Guy in the pros.
    • Right. KC was also a perennial playoff team prior to Mahomes taking over. The Colts are a fringe playoff team at best, until we see if AR can lift the roster.    And to your point, Veach took over the summer before Mahomes’ rookie year. Hard to compare how KC’s FO approach with Dorsey at GM (for several years) vs. when Veach took over. It seems like Ballard has been more like Dorsey and Veach might just operate differently from both of them.    If Ballard wanted to follow the Veach KC model, he sure waited a long time to do it once Luck retired.
