Why the San Francisco 49ers will win more than 9 games
Whether San Francisco trades Jimmy G. or not, the 49ers are set at quarterback. Trey Lance is more than capable of leading the team.
So if Jimmy is out the door, SF will be okay. If Garoppolo stays, San Francisco should be better than okay. Kyle Shanahan can choose to start Jimmy if he feels Trey requires more seasoning, or he could start Lance.
If it’s Garoppolo, Shanahan calls drop back passes. If it’s Lance, Shanahan calls more out of the pocket on the run passes. The 49ers’ head coach might even call quarterback runs if Trey is the starter.
No matter who ends up under center for San Francisco, the 49ers look strong. The defense, led by end Nick Bosa and free safety Jimmie Ward, remains one of the top units in the league.
The offensive line is stacked. Running back Elijah Mitchell is going to have a great season. George Kittle is one of the top tight-ends in the NFL and wide receiver Deebo Samuel might be the overall best skill player in the league.
Why the San Francisco 49ers won’t win more than 9 games
Every team in the AFC West is a playoff contender. Las Vegas traded for wide receiver Davante Adams, the Chargers improved their defense big time, Patrick Mahomes still throws for the Chiefs, and Denver traded for Russell Wilson.
Final Betting Analysis: Will the San Francisco 49ers win at least 10 games?
Trey Lance could be a star but Lance is unproven, which makes it difficult to back the Niners to win more than 8 to 9 games.
Yes, there’s a chance Garoppolo stays in a 49ers’ uniform. But the better chance is that he ends up playing somewhere else. And even if Jimmy stays, he’s injury-prone. So Lance will end up starting a few games for sure.
Teams with questions at quarterback are tough to get behind to cover win-loss totals. San Francisco has two decent quarterbacks on their roster.
But one is inexperienced and the other won’t finish the season without suffering an injury. The brutal schedule makes under the play.
