Things not going as planned for SF

The San Francisco 49ers were billed as a serious Super Bowl contender heading into the 2021 season.

Nearing the halfway point San Francisco is trying to stay relevant in the race for a wild card spot in the playoffs.

They are 2-3, buried behind five teams that are not winning division right now and hoping their franchise QB Jimmy Garoppolo can stay healthy starting with the next game against the Colts Sunday.

Garoppolo missed San Francisco's loss to 5-0 Arizona (17-10) that saw rookie Trey Lance get his first NFL start. He looked like a rookie throwing for 192-yards and rushing 89 more.

Lance did keep the 49ers in the game with only one turnover but he was reckless at time with the way he ran taking big hits along the way.

It's hard to survive in the NFL as a running QB and it shows the Trey needs some seasoning before he can be a productive QB in the NFL.
