Despite reports that 49ers quarterback Trey Lance struggles with his arm growing fatigued, one teammate who has seen Lance throw plenty of passes says everything is just fine.

San Francisco wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk, who has been working out with Lance all offseason, posted video of three great passes that Lance threw to him at a recent training session. Then Aiyuk mocked the idea that Lance’s arm tires out easily.

“The only three throws from the day, his arm got fatigued after that,” Aiyuk joked.

After spending most of his rookie season on the bench, Lance will take over for Jimmy Garoppolo as the 49ers’ starting quarterback this season, and the 49ers need his arm to hold up over 500 or so throws. Aiyuk has no doubt that Lance can do it.

    Why didn’t he post the 30 horrible throws that went with them?

  3. Won’t be fatigue. Will be processing, accuracy and consistency making shorter/mid range throws.

    Look at Wilson and Lance’s college tape. All broken plays and chuck plays downfield with them running.

  4. I don’t care what the 49ers or Aiyuk say, Lance will be a mega-bust. In fact, I am rooting against Lance simply because he is over-hyped by the media despite the fact that he has done NOTHING in the NFL to date.

  5. Dang, lots of venom in comment section for the off-season..

    I think it’s just gonna be a wait and see year for SF

  6. Lance is another one read, then run QB, and they do not last more than a couple years when the injuries start adding up. RGIII, Mariota, Johnny Football, Fields, Kap, and Lance, all one read, then run QB’s who either did not make it, or will be out of football shortly!

    In what world is he overhyped? If anything he is the most trashed QB in the media who has barely done anything. I can count on one hand reporters who do not refer to Lance negatively.

  8. It’s gonna be hard to be fatigued if he gets injured from pulling the ball down and running every other play.

  9. I know smack talk is always part of sports and all, but I feel like so many people get off on gleefully rooting for guys they don’t know to fail and making all kinds of doomsday predictions with little or no data.

    Whether it’s Trey Lance or Jalen Hurts, I’m really hoping some of the guys who absorb a huge amount of rancor for no reason grow into stars and shut some people up.

  10. They should have drafted Mac Jones. Perfect fit in that Shanahan system.

  11. When players have to resort to things like this to prove their QB is all that and a bag of chips, you know that QB is nothing.

    You shouldn’t say anything when you’ve got Joe Judge calling your offensive plays
