It has not been a good week for San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance. First he lost his 2022 season debut to the Chicago Bears last Sunday. Only days later, a concerning video of the second-year NFL quarterback has surfaced on social media.
FS1's Colin Cowherd has seen the video and needs to share his thoughts on it. The 58-year-old thinks it's time for Lance to grow up and become the franchise quarterback San Francisco needs him to be.
With that being said, Jimmy Garoppolo infamously went on a date with a porn star and faced similar criticism years ago. He turned out just fine and led the Niners to two NFC Championships in three years.
"Can't complete 50 percent of his throws, making it rain at a strip club," Cowherd said of Lance during his show on Friday. "It's not the NBA, man. Got to hit home games, got to win them. Especially when you have a Super Bowl roster. It's not the end of the world, of course. Nor was Jimmy [Garoppolo] being caught with a porn star having dinner. But you all defended Jimmy G and what happened four days later? The Niners' brass spoke out publicly and said, 'We expect better from a franchise quarterback.' Of course, you never do. According to the story, Twitter supported Trey Lance. Of course they do. Of course Twitter supported it, but Twitter's not real life."
Oh boy. It's worth pointing out there were rumors Trey Lance dated Colin Cowherd's daughter, but it was never confirmed.
With that being said, Lance can party all he wants as long as he wins games and performs well. It only becomes a problem if the Niners underperform.
