Kyle Shanahan Sticking with Jimmy G as 49ers Expect Trey Lance's Return
Kyle Shanahan is sticking with Jimmy Garoppolo and plans for the veteran quarterback to start on Sunday against the Chicago Bears.
Garoppolo is coming off of a rough outing against the Indianapolis Colts where the quarterback connected on just 59 percent of his throws for 181 yards, one touchdown, two costly interceptions and a fumble. San Francisco's offense struggled overall in moving the ball, being held to a mere 1-of-11 on third downs and committed a whopping four total turnovers.
As the 49ers sit at 2-4, naturally, questions have begun circling around the team's potential to make a change under center. The 49ers invested heavily in Trey Lance, trading up to the third pick in the draft to acquire the quarterback. However, despite the disappointing loss, Shanahan believes Garoppolo gives the 49ers the best chance to turn their middling season around.

December 27, 1970
The 49ers celebrated the club's 25th anniversary in 1970 by winning the NFC West and then notching the first NFL playoff victory in franchise history. They did it by shocking the Minnesota Vikings, 17-14, in a bruising defensive struggle.
Led by NFC Coach of the Year, Dick Nolan, the 49ers overcame Minnesota's frigid weather, a rock-hard icy field and coach Bud Grant's "Purple People Eaters" to post the win.
