Nick Bosa: If Trey Lance doesn’t make big mistakes, 49ers will be in good shape

49ers defensive end Nick Bosa has a simple message for quarterback Trey Lance: Don’t screw up.

Bosa says Lance has a good enough team around him that he doesn’t need to worry about winning games by himself. He just needs to make sure he doesn’t make any mistakes that lose games.

“He’s got all the help,” Bosa said, via NBCSportsBayArea.com. “He just needs to — I mean, I’m not going to give him advice like I’m a QB coach — but I think if he doesn’t make big mistakes then we’re going to be in good shape.”

Bosa thinks Lance couldn’t ask for a better situation to step into than to have Brandon Aiyuk, Deebo Samuel and George Kittle to throw to, and the 49ers’ defense keeping them in games.

“Our mindset is always the same as a defense,” Bosa said. “But I think he’s probably in the best position you can be in as a first-year [starting] quarterback with a defense like us and a good O-line and a bunch weapons, Aiyuk, Deebo and George and everybody else.”

With Jimmy Garoppolo last year, the 49ers just missed the Super Bowl. Lance was drafted to be an upgrade over Garoppolo, and Bosa thinks the 49ers have a roster that can go all the way, if Lance does his job.

  1. If our QB throws no interceptions and finds all the open receivers we will do well.

    You will also have a HOF QB

  2. Or you could have Jimmy G and not worry about it. Blame your deluded GM

  3. “Bosa thinks the 49ers have a roster that can go all the way, if Lance does his job.”
    That’s why nobody is paying Nick to think…let alone utter a coherent sentence.

  4. This is great news. I’m only a “We just need him to manage the game” away from completing my 49ers Trey Lance Self Delusion BINGO card!

  5. Joe Montana won the super bowl the first year he was the starter. Trey Lance reminds me a lot of Joe (physically). Joe was a great athlete, not just a smart guy. I’m not expecting Lance to win the super bowl this year, but nobody was expecting Joe to win his first year, either. But be patient. Joe Montana’s don’t grow on trees.

  6. The 49ers would be a SB team with Mac Jones. Shanahan must be kicking himself.

  7. Speaking of people desperate to talk up their QB, the Patriots fans are starting to appear. They really are everywhere here. Does DuPont make any kind of product for this?

  8. Bosa can never stay healthy, that’s rich coming from him. Niners will be lucky to win 7 games.
