Trent Williams: Nothing rattles Trey Lance and that will carry him a long way

USA TODAY Sports

The 49ers are ostensibly turning the page to have Trey Lance as their starting quarterback this season.

After San Francisco traded up to draft Lance at No. 3 overall last year, the quarterback was Jimmy Garoppolo‘s backup throughout the season. He started a pair of games when Garoppolo was hurt, defeating the Texans in a critical Week 17 game that helped set up San Francisco’s deep playoff run.

Even though there was some awkwardness with Lance and Garoppoolo, it wasn’t all that evident to their teammates. Lance has a new role on the field, but he’s still the same person.

“Seeing him in the locker room now, I don’t really see a difference,” left tackle Trent Williams said on Tuesday, via Jerry McDonald of the Bay Area News Group. “He carries himself extremely well, which is why he’s here, why everyone is so high on him. We all know his attributes as a quarterback. But I think the way he carries himself, the way he holds his head, the way nothing ever rattles him, that’s his key feature and I think that will carry him a long way.”

Lance completed 57.7 percent of his passes as a rookie for 603 yards with five touchdowns and two interceptions. He also rushed for 168 yards with a TD.

  1. I think that’s because of all of his experience playing 19 games of college football in Division III.

  2. Wait until Aaron Donald plasters him. He’ll go back to reading messages from all his Twitter haters that he says he ignores.

  3. Right.
    Let’s see you say the same thing when he inevitably throws a bad INT or 2 or 3.

  4. Trent held Washington hostage because of a gripe about a training department that was fired and replaced, and got his money with the SF that we were fleeced on (the same money we would have paid him! But what’s interesting is that we got an average LT who’s played pretty much the same as him. We stunk with him and his pro bowls and we stink without him. No difference!

  5. I do not question one single move the niners have made with Trey Lance to this point. I think any highly drafted QB being thrown out there immediately is an across the board mistake. It is an abject failure time after time – but still persists. Steve, Patrick, Trey were all handled correctly to the benefit of each player. I also do not buy that it is an automatic given that EVERY kid starting his career at QB is going to be a disaster – most will, granted. But an automatic, mistake prone nightmare – I do not buy that.

  6. Dude what are you going on about? Williams is the best Tackle of this generation…

    My point is that selfish individuals don’t win team sports, period! You’re not a fan of Washington! You didn’t live it with him! It’s not worth it to have a ME guy no matter how talented he is if it makes ZERO difference in wins and losses!
