That he hasn't shown he's ready to be the undisputed starter and it'd be irresponsible to put a top 3 roster in football in the hands of a guy who has thrown 420 passes in live action since 2018, hasn't looked great in the opportunities he did have in the NFL, and is coming off an injury. Starting Lance in 2023 would be the 49ers putting his development ahead of what's best for the team. I don't think their team is set to be great for 3+ years either, the window might be short and ownership would be foolish not to maximize it. Sign Brady for one year while Purdy/Lance develop and then have them battle it out in 2024. If Brady won't settle for anything less than a two+ year deal, then look into what it would take to get Rodgers. If that would completely fuck up your cap in a way that harms the team, then hope Purdy is healthy come training camp and have him as the starter. Lance would be my last choice for next year if I were them.Whoops, I forgot Jimmy was a UFA. Yeah, they’re good then. I guess Brady makes sense…but what are you telling Trey at that point?
