The Good and Not So Good from Day 4 of 49ers Training Camp: Bounce Bay Day for Trey Lance

Santa Clara – Here’s who stood out on day four of 49ers training camp. Keep in mind that the 49ers will have a day off tomorrow and then their first padded practice on Monday, then the competition will be the best. When players are not wearing pads, defense always takes advantage, because attack cannot conserve mass or be physical in protecting passes.

The good

1. Quarterback Tree Lance.

I completed 8 of 15 two-drop pass attempts and one interception went straight to Fred Warner – you’d think Jimmy Garoppolo was playing middle in that play. Lance has now thrown an interception in three practices in a row, which is not good. Today, he had Ray-Ray McCloud wide open and 15 yards down the field and simply needed to get the pass over Warner’s head. Instead, Lance threw the ball on a low line straight to the linebacker. That was Lance’s worst shot yet. The rest of his practice was excellent. He completed three perfect long passes to Brandon Ayok and one to George Keitel (more on them below). Lance also made good decisions, especially when he pulled the ball down and defended instead of forcing Aiouk to pass the ball deep. So despite the objection, this was Lance’s best camp practice so far, and he still couldn’t play Debo Samuel. That should change when the 49ers return to camp on Monday, assuming the 49ers extend Samuel’s contract by then.
