Former NFL coach Mike Martz went scorch earth on Trey Lance this weekend ... blasting the 49ers quarterback for his performance in Week 1 while admitting, "I've never liked him."
I watch so many games out of time sync in replay mode on NFL+ that the revival of this 2022 thread threw me off for a second running on only moderate morning coffee intake.
I was like "a weather game?" The "Bears," what?

"Fast-forwarding" to 2023, I just don't see from his on-field performance that Lance is doing the off-field work that a young QB needs to do to be an on-field success. Including after having all that time since he went down with the injury to work on the mental aspects of the game.
That apparent lack of work ethic typically is not something that can be fixed with simply a different coach, and Brian Griese has the makings of an excellent QB coach where Lance currently already is at.
Like a theme from The Celestine Prophecy (throwback alert to '90's era new age stuff), I always try to leave room for players to change and improve -- it helps keeps you from getting caught flat-footed as a sports bettor.
But Lance is on his way to a bust, so far.
The 4th round pick was a nice return for SFLance can't process information quickly enough at NFL speed...not my evaluation I dont pretend to be an expert evaluator..Trubisky and Fields are 2 other examples of not processing fast enough....fixable?...Dallas takes a flyer in something that only costs them 5-6 million
