This is not a surprise. Many thought darnold would beat out Purdy while he played catch up after injury. Darnold would definitely beat out Zach also. Lance would have too.

Based on what?

Lance hasn’t had a chance yet. Was behind jimmy G, A top pick had injury and beat out by another rookie qb who took team to NFC. Unlike Zach who had PLENTY of chances and failed, regressed. Played some of the worst football a qb has in history of NFL..

Fine, Zach sucks, whatever. Still not seeing the evidence that Lance would be better. The 49ers don’t see him as good enough to be the backup.

Trey Lance landed in the perfect situation 

The 49ers simply made a sh*tty decision drafting a guy that high who had like 12 starts at the Division II equivalent of Alabama.

Saw a graphic on ESPN the other day that the picks SF gave up for Lance turned into Jaylen Waddle (draft), Tyreek Hill (trade), and Bradley Chubb (trade). This is on the shortlist of worst blunders in league history. Luckily the Niners are such a well run organization that they can absorb the hit, but man….

You see the cheese.  You know there is a bar waiting to snap your neck.  Why do you still nibble? :D

He still has about $16M guaranteed coming. 
 
People complain about some of Joe Douglas’ moves, while the 49ers are often viewed as the league’s front office champions. Three first rounders and a third they traded for Lance. I can’t even imagine the bitching we’d hear here if JD had made such a move. 

Sitting at #2, we could have received all of those picks, possibly more. What a kick in the nuts to have ended up with Zach.

Taking the QB there was fine. Darnold is still a bust. The research done on Wilson wasn’t enough clearly. And the Jets are still pretending he may have a future. Credit to SF for pulling the plug (and Lance has looked better than Wilson this preseason).

The few of us who suggested going with Darnold for one more year and trading down were blasted to kingdom come for suggesting such a thing.

This was my POV at the time. I didn’t like the whole rookie HC, rookie OC, rookie QB thing at all. In hindsight, the right call was not to take a QB at all. The whole class outside of Lawrence sucks.

If the 49ers trade Lance to a team that assumes his salary, this can be a positive move for them.  The 49ers can break even if the trading team pays about 1/2 of it.  

But Lance's contract is almost like Zach's-it is tough to get out of it in year 3.  Year 4 makes more sense.

Once again, trading up for a QB backfires 

*Once again trading up for a unproven QB backfires again.

Dude played 1 season of football, in the FCS ffs - in 2019, before being drafted #3 ova in 2021. 

Absurd.

OK. I get it,

Picking Josh Allen good. (I mean, it was obvious watching him at Wyoming that he was going to great because of his physical tools, regardless of the competition and his stats)

Picking Sam Darnold, Baker Mayfield, Josh Rosen bad.

Picking Pat Mahomes good. Picking Deshaun Watson good, then bad, then we'll see in 2023.

Picking Trevor Lawrence good.  Picking Zach Wilson bad (I mean, it was obvious he was going to bust despite his physical tools because of the competition and his stats should have been ignored).  Picking Trey Lance bad (but better than picking Zach Wilson because ???).

Picking Justin Fields good or bad depending on what you thought/said three years ago. 

If anyone can really tell who will be good and who will be bad and who will be just ok, they are full of crap.

Yes Zach sucks, proven. Not saying Lance is better, no one can possibly say Lance will suck as bad as Zach. And the 9ers didn’t say he isn’t good enough to be backup. They simply believe in having a lot of talent at the qb position. Purdy was 3rd string, last pick in draft last yr. Took team to nfc championship game, maybe to superbowl if didn’t get hurt. Obviously no one thought he was good enough, until he got to play. Someone will give Lance a chance. Jets have never believed in having capable backups.. Look at history..

JD did make that exact move....only for ZW

Edit for Slats: Those 3 first round picks plus the 3rd coulda been ours, but JD wanted ZW instead. Same thing.
