Brian Hoyer to remain 49ers' starter in Week 5

Brian Hoyer to remain 49ers' starter in Week 5”

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan insisted Monday his hand-picked starting quarterback will keep his job. I know he can do better.

"I know we very easily could be 3-1", Shanahan said. "It's never just one guy, and I try to put all that into thought".

But that doesn't mean he's going to bench starter Brian Hoyer. "I have to make better throws, they make the catches".

"I think it's a two-way street". "We need to play better around him".

Hoyer's 58.1 completion percentage ranks 30th in the NFL.

Hoyer appeared to be on the way to improvement when he threw for 332 yards and his first two touchdowns of the season in the Week 3 home loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

But Hoyer's play through the first four games has been among the key reasons the 49ers are winless.

Brian Hoyer completed just 24-of-49 passes for 234 yards, no touchdowns, and one interception in the 49ers' Week 4 loss to the Cardinals. "He completed just three of 11 passes and took three sacks when under pressure, and against 20 blitzes completed just 31.6 percent of his throws and had a passer rating of 43.1".

On the 49ers' first third down of the game, Taylor motions to a tight split and runs a slant route.

"Real confidence is from experiencing success. If you're not, you're trying to talk yourself into it and that isn't very real", Shanahan said. When we haven't played great in these games, and he hasn't played his best in these games, you don't have the same type of confidence. But if not, Beathard may eventually get his chance to play as a rookie. But he hasn't gotten much help from his receivers, either. The problem is they don't have many better options. It's clearly the thing Hoyer is most comfortable doing and the numbers bear that out. His passer rating of 67.9 is also 30th. When he has to throw from the pocket without the benefit of play-action or a screen pass, those numbers dip to a 55.8 passer rating and a QBR of 18.6. Hoyer had four passes dropped Sunday, giving his targets 12 on the season to lead the NFL, according to Pro Football Focus.

"You just keep throwing", Hoyer said. I don't expect those guys to be flawless. He also said safety Eric Reid is more likely to return next week after suffering a knee injury in Week 2.

Meanwhile, Shanahan reported that outside linebacker Reuben Foster (sprained ankle) and strong safety Eric Reid (strained knee) were once again unlikely to practice this week, and thus nearly definitely out of the Indianapolis game. Making the switch to rookie backup C.J. And if I did feel that was the best thing for our team at this time, I wouldn't hesitate at all.

"In the past you go up to him and say, 'Hey don't worry about it, I'm coming right back to you, '" he said Wednesday.

"The 49ers haven't been an easy out for any of their first four opponents and have the look of a team that's going to get better as the season goes on", wrote Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com.
