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 history: Boos from fans, pep talk from Joe Montana motivated Jerry Rice to be great

By David Bonilla
Jul 10, 2020

Jerry Rice finished his career with 1,549 receptions for 22,895 yards with 197 touchdowns. All are NFL records that will likely stand for a long time. He is the greatest receiver ever to play the game. It is difficult even to contemplate anyone ever trying to debate that. During Rice's rookie season in 1985, however, he looked like anything but a future Hall of Famer who would one day be considered a player with some of the surest hands in the history of the game. Rice discussed overcoming some early NFL adversity during the now two-year-old "Breaking Ground" documentary that first aired during Black History Month in 2018, and was recently

Featured 49ers Fan: Podcaster/Writer Levin T. Black Says Garoppolo Critics "Aren't True Journalists...They're Shock Jocks"

Levin T. Black is an unsung podcast hero. Carefully striking a balance between obsessed analytics nerd and the wise elder statesman at the bar. His insights, humor, and wit are one-third of the very best 49ers podcast out there — the 49ers Webzone "No Huddle Podcast" (available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Google PlayMusic). I don't say this because I write for the Webzone myself. Long before I volunteered to write here, I would search for a good 49ers podcasts to listen to. It would take quite some time before I found the No Huddle Podcast. At that time, Levin T. Black was yet to join the crew, but it didn't take long to get hooked by host Zain Naqvi's commentary on the best franchise in sports. When Levin T. Black joined the

Was this the worst call against the 49ers in team history?

By David Bonilla
Jul 1, 2020

Mike Phillips of FanSided endeavored to name the worst call against each NFL team in their history. So naturally, I skipped past 31 NFL teams and headed straight to the call that went against the San Francisco 49ers. The FanSided contributor chose the holding call against Ronnie Lott in the NFC Championship Game during the 1983 season. San Francisco had won just one Super Bowl at that point and was fighting for its second Vice Lombardi Trophy. Washington had jumped out to a 21-0 lead in the third quarter and looked well on its way to easily eliminating the 49ers. The 49ers started mounting a fourth-quarter comeback, though. Joe Montana hit Mike Wilson for a score.
