Zane Beadles says ‘pep talk’ against Rams has been blown out of proportion

Dec 30, 2016 at 10:55 AM--


San Francisco 49ers guard Zane Beadles joined the Damon Bruce Show on 95.7 The Game yesterday to discuss the team as they head into their final game of the season.

There has been some talk about Beadles and his "pep talk" prior to the 49ers engineering a comeback against the Rams in Los Angeles to snap a franchise record 13-game losing streak. "I kind of feel like some guys are blowing it out of proportion," Beadles said. "Basically, it was just, 'Listen, we're down 14 right now, a little over 10 minutes left in the game. It doesn't matter what happened up until this point in the game, we've got to go out there and put our best foot forward. If we're going to go win this game, we've got to do it right now.' Guys responded, we went out there, and two nice drives later, we're in the end zone and a two-point conversion and we win the game."

Even if Beadles feels that his teammates are blowing his pep talk out of proportion, that does not necessarily mean that it is true. Obviously, the talk sparked something in his teammates because they were able to rally together and pull off a victory despite being down and on the road. As Beadles said, guys responded and that's what matters.

Just as other 49ers players have stated before him, Beadles just cares about winning football games and does not think about draft picks. "It's too hard to win in the league anyway," he said. "Our job is to go out there and play good football. We haven't done that at points this year so to be able to go out there and come away with the win, especially on the road, that's really all that matters for us."

You can listen to the entire interview on 95.7 The Game.

Beadles was a free agent pickup by the 49ers this past offseason. On March 17, he agreed to a 3-year, $11.75 million deal that will keep him with the 49ers through the 2018 season. The 6-foot-4, 305-pound lineman was drafted by the Denver Broncos out of Utah in the second round of the 2010 NFL Draft. He was named to his first Pro Bowl in 2012, replacing New England Patriots guard Logan Mankins.

Mohamed Sanu will play against Jets if 49ers dress five WRs, Shanahan says

It sounds like a safe bet that wide receiver Mohamed Sanu will be on the field for the 49ers against the New York Jets this weekend, even though he only has one practice under his belt after officially joining the team Friday. The 49ers officially announced the signing of the veteran receiver late Friday morning after his agent revealed earlier in the week Sanu would be joining the team on a one-year deal. Sanu, 31, brings some much-needed depth to a 49ers receiving room that has been decimated by injury and also has the ability to step in and contribute right away after spending a season in Shanahan's system while Shanahan was the offensive coordinator in Atlanta in 2016. Shanahan expressed confidence earlier in the week in Sanu's ability to help the 49ers

San Francisco 49ers rookie defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw didn't walk away from his NFL debut with gaudy statistics. He was credited with just one tackle during Sunday's loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Still, Pro Football Focus graded the young defender as the fourth-best 49ers player from Week 1 and felt he had the third-best debut by an NFL rookie. NFL Media analyst Brian Baldinger was impressed by Kinlaw's performance against the Cardinals and shared a little film breaking down why he feels that way. He called the young defender an "incredible prospect with

49ers-Jets: Ahkello Witherspoon has cleared concussion protocol, will replace Richard Sherman, says John Lynch

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch joined KNBR on Friday morning and provided several injury updates. Among them was news that cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon has cleared the concussion protocol and will start in place of Richard Sherman this weekend against the New York Jets. Sherman was placed on short-term injured reserve this week and will miss at least the next three games. Lynch did note that his calf strain is unrelated to his previous Achilles injury. The general manager saw Sherman after the game and noted, "It wasn't pretty the way he was walking." That, along with discussions with Sherman, led the 49ers to sideline the All-Pro cornerback for a few games. Witherspoon will fill in for the veteran cornerback and play
