After only 1 game with Trey Lance under center, the SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA 49ers might already be regretting their decision to send Jimmy Garoppolo to the bench.

In his begin since officially being named 49ers quarterback, Lance had a disastrous performance in a shocking 19-10 loss to the Bears in Chicago. Sure, it didn’t help that the overall game was played in the center of a biblical rain storm, but regardless of the way you spin it, it had been any ugly game for Lance.

The second-year quarterback completed under 50% of his passes (13 of 28) and threw for 164 yards. The troubling part for the 49ers is that Lance wasn’t in a position to come through once the 49ers needed him most. With the 49ers trailing 13-10 in the fourth quarter, Lance had the opportunity to engineer a comeback, but any hope of this happening ended when he threw an ugly interception to Eddie Jackson that basically iced the win for Chicago.

Jackson finished up returning the pick to San Francisco’s 21-yard line and the Bears would score five plays later to take an insurmountable 19-10 lead.

Lance was at his worst in crunch time, going 4-for-13 for 41 yards and an interception in the fourth quarter. The upside for the 49ers is that Lance won’t need to play in weather such as this every week, however the downside is that when he doesn’t start improving soon, SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA may have a quarterback controversy on its hands prior to the end of the month.
