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.

Jed York says Jimmy Garoppolo is an investment in Trey Lance's, 49ers' futures

Jimmy Garoppolo will earn a base salary of $24.1 million in 2021. The plan is to have Trey Lance, whom the San Francisco 49ers drafted No. 3 overall last week, eventually take over for him. Keeping Garoppolo, a savvy veteran who is already well-versed in head coach Kyle Shanahan's offense, might seem like a no-brainer from a personnel perspective. After all, the 49ers are built to win now. Are the hopes of a championship season something you want to throw on the shoulders of a rookie quarterback? Financially, it is a significant ask of ownership. That is a lot of money to invest in a player who may only be around for one more season. You're basically paying out much of your salary cap for a potential one-year rental. However, it does allow Lance the luxury of starting his NFL



Jason Smith throws out wild theory that 49ers could trade Trey Lance for Aaron Rodgers

And here you thought the Aaron Rodgers-to-San Francisco 49ers chatter was over. I'll preface this by saying what Jason Smith of FOX Sports Radio said about the 49ers and the Green Bay Packers quarterback might be the most ridiculous thing you read today. Now that you have been sufficiently warned, brace yourself, and proceed, if you wish. Smith believes San Francisco remains interested in Rodgers, and drafting Trey Lance of North Dakota State with the No. 3 overall pick last week hasn't changed that. Now, any rational reporter or fan clearly understands that the Niners heard about the disgruntled Green Bay quarterback and did their due diligence, as head coach Kyle

It's been just over a week since Trey Lance was drafted No. 3 overall by the San Francisco 49ers, and he has already started the process of building chemistry with his new NFL teammates. The former North Dakota State star quarterback is working out with one of the Niners' first-round picks from last year, wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk (h/t to Alex Didion of NBC Sports).

49ers working out safety Blake Countess, four others, per reports

According to Damond Talbot of NFL Draft Diamonds, the San Francisco 49ers are working out safety Blake Countess. The team kicks off a three-day rookie minicamp today, the perfect opportunity to look at potential additions to the roster. The Philadelphia Eagles made Countess a sixth-round selection out of Auburn in 2016. He transferred there from Michigan for his senior year. Countess, 27, registered three tackles through two games with the Eagles in 2020. It was the defender's third stint with the team. Countess was twice promoted from the Eagles' practice squad last season, appearing in the team's Week 15 and 17 games. He signed a reserve/futures contract on January 4, but was
