NFL Twitter reacts to Lance pick vs. Bears with Jimmy G memes originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea
When it rains, it pours.
And as soon as his short pass over the middle -- originally intended for wide receiver Jauan Jennings -- fell into the hands of Bears safety Eddie Jackson, Twitter reacted as you'd expect with veteran Jimmy Garoppolo standing on the San Francisco sideline as Lance's backup.

Trey stared it down. So Eddie Jackson said thank you. #49ers

The 49ers: "We're not looking too good out there."

Some people think tough decisions might lie ahead for coach Kyle Shanahan, despite reports that Lance will receive plenty of leeway in his first full season under center.
Long week ahead for Kyle Shanahan. Life comes at you fast in the NFL. Bears barely have 200 yards but are up 9 cuz 49ers started the wrong QB. 13/26 for 164 and a pick. Yikes. Fields outplayed him with two huge plays

Others are keeping a cool head in the face of Lance's Week 1 showing.
Trey Lance isnât the problem

The panic will be setting inâ¦ but terrible weather plus that Deebo fumble and a bunch of penalties by the 49ers. The L isnât solely on Lanceâs shoulders. Not ready to write him off over this one. #fttb

The 49ers ended up losing the game 19-10 -- not the way the 49ers Faithful wanted to start the season.
But with the Seattle Seahawks just around the corner, Lance and the rest of the team will need to tighten things up before Week 2.
Until then, social media surely will have plenty to talk about.
