SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — The play so far this season from the San Francisco 49ers quarterbacks has been mostly what was expected.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Rookie Trey Lance's first career start for the San Francisco 49ers featured a bad interception, a couple of promising moments and a knee injury that could sideline him for a week or two.
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Trey Lance's first NFL start showed the 21-year-old's tantalizing potential as an elite quarterback.
It also showed why there's more work to be done before he gets there.
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Zach Allen will enjoy his postgame trip to Shake Shack after an exhausting, physical win over the San Francisco 49ers. He and the rest of the Arizona Cardinals' defense certainly deserve a burger or two.

Playing quarterback in the NFL is no simple task, and this year's class of newcomers is getting a crash course — filled with sacks, interceptions and losses — in how difficult it is to immediately succeed under center.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Rookie quarterback Trey Lance will make his first start for the San Francisco 49ers after Jimmy Garoppolo was ruled out of this week's game with a calf injury.

Garoppolo threw a TD on the opening drive but struggled after that for San Francisco.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — The solution for the San Francisco 49ers' slow starts on offense won't be a quick change at quarterback.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Imagine if instead of playing quarterback for the Green Bay Packers in Sunday night’s game against San Francisco, Aaron Rodgers was starting for the 49ers.
On the day before this year’s draft, with Rodgers not wanting to return to the team he had led to back-to-back NFC championship game appearances, 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan inquired about the availability of Rodgers in a trade.
The rookie class of quarterbacks that entered the season full of fanfare is finding the adjustment to the NFL is not very easy.
Top two picks Trevor Lawrence and Zach Wilson lead the league with five interceptions after opening the season with back-to-back losses, Trey Lance has barely seen the field and Mac Jones is the only QB to get a win, and that came against Wilson.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Jimmy Garoppolo wasn't thinking about Trey Lance coming into the game. He was too busy using his own legs to convert first downs.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Top two overall draft picks Trevor Lawrence and Zach Wilson are set to step right in and become starting NFL quarterbacks in Week 1 of their rookie season.

INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) — Trey Lance's bid to be the San Francisco 49ers' starting quarterback was a bit of a rollercoaster Sunday night, but the rookie rebounded from a rough start to keep his hopes alive.
Most of the top college football players who opted out of the 2020 season because of the pandemic decided to leave school and launch pro careers.
Justin Fields outshined his fellow first-round quarterbacks in their preseason openers.
Trevor Lawrence, Zach Wilson, Trey Lance and Mac Jones also made a positive impression in their debuts. So did Jordan Love, who isn’t a rookie but didn’t take a snap last year.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Whoever ends up playing quarterback for San Francisco this season figures to have a much deeper set of receivers at his disposal than what the 49ers had last season.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — With one deep strike, Trey Lance showed why the San Francisco 49ers invested so heavily to draft him this offseason. With a few shakier moments in his preseason debut, Lance showed why the Niners aren't rushing to make him their starter.
Coach Kyle Shanahan knows that in the big picture, it won't matter how well Trey Lance plays in his exhibition debut for the San Francisco 49ers.
That doesn't dampen Shanahan's excitement to see his rookie first-round quarterback take the field in a game for the first time Saturday night when the Niners host the Kansas City Chiefs in an exhibition game.
