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.

49ers' John Lynch praises Christian McCaffrey: "He's been a godsend"

Looking at the roster in October, the San Francisco 49ers decided to go all-in. The coaches and executives already believed in the talent level. For whatever reason, the 49ers were sitting at .500, though. So the team traded for star running back Christian McCaffrey. Since then, the 49ers have lost just one game. It was McCaffrey's first game in a Niners uniform, where he had about 48 hours to prepare. San Francisco has won 11 consecutive games since, including this past weekend's Wild Card playoff win against the Seattle Seahawks, setting the stage for Sunday's showdown with the Dallas Cowboys. The fact that the 49ers haven't lost a game in which McCaffrey has

The San Francisco 49ers defeated the Dallas Cowboys in a close game, winning to the score of 19-12 after their defense created multiple stops at the end of the game. The game was tight for the entire 60 minutes, with a Brett Maher field goal tying the score at 9-9 with 9:06 remaining in the third quarter. For the remainder of the quarter, neither team gained much offensive momentum, but one play ultimately turned the ship for the 49ers, leading them to a touchdown that occurred to begin the 4th quarter: a Brock Purdy to George Kittle dime from an off-schedule play. Purdy had initially faked a handoff before rolling to his left, but to his dismay, both of San Francisco's top reads on the play, Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel were

The 49ers faced their share of offensive struggles, but ultimately gained enough momentum in the second half to take the lead after an early Dallas field goal, which they never gave up.
