Post-game Quotes: 49ers players react to 27-24 preseason loss to Chargers

Aug 29, 2019 at 11:51 PM--

The following are select post-game quotes from San Francisco 49ers players following Thursday night's 27-24 preseason loss to the Los Angeles Chargers

Quotes provided by the 49ers Communications staff.

QB C.J. Beathard

How did you feel tonight?

"I felt good. It felt good getting out there, just running the offense and getting guys in there. Just getting the flow of a start and throughout the whole half felt good."

Did you know you were getting the whole first half?

"I didn't know I was getting the whole first half. I just knew I was starting and they would let us know from there."

Did it feel nice to finally get that full rhythm?

"I can't remember the last time I started, but it's been a while since I got to start a game. It felt good to do that and to just kind of go quarter-to-quarter and finish the whole half. It gets you a little two-minute drive in there."

Did you like the way you finished? It seemed like you got better and better as the half went on.

"Yeah. We had a touchdown right before the half. That's what you want to do right there is try to get one there, and we got that. There's obviously a lot of stuff to clean up, but I felt good about the game."

QB Nick Mullens

Do you sense that not only you, but San Francisco 49ers QB C.J. Beathard have been better this camp? Has the competition brought out the best in everybody?

"Yes. I think the whole room. We talk about experience and reps in the offense. We have both grown tremendously. I think you can tell by the tape, we both have had very successful camps and a lot to be proud of."

In terms of the offense as a whole, how much more comfortable is the collective, and how much do you think that will help you execute once the regular season begins?

"Yes. Definitely. I think we obviously have some new receivers who we are excited to see make some plays. At the same time, we have a great solid group core, or whatever you want to call it, that is ready to attack the season. We are excited with where we are headed."

At San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan's previous stops they have talked about having another year in the system and how that helps. Are there any specific instances where you have seen this sort of experience pay off?

"I'm sure I can think of a few, but it is overall comfort. You are not worried about what is being called. You are just worried about how to go and execute it and how to put your other teammates in great positions to succeed and stuff like that. It is great, we are very comfortable in it and ready to put some points on the board."

RB Jeff Wilson Jr.

Can you take us through that 41-yard run?

"It was just like a feel thing. I just felt the way the defense was flowing. They were flowing really heavy. I saw the defensive end on the back side, who was almost on the other side or in the center almost. I just made my decision to stick my foot and go backfield. To see the cornerback sitting there, then to see [QB] C.J. [Beathard] behind me and for him to take off just gave me that extra power. I was like, I have to put it in now. If C.J. comes out there and blocks for me in the fourth preseason game. That speaks to his character. I was just trying to make his block that much better."

Was it surprising to see him put his body on the line like that and make that block for you?

"No. That is the type of person that he is. C.J. is a selfless person and I kind of almost expected it. That is just the kind of guy that he is. It was just a great play."

Twenty carries tonight were you expecting that type of workload?

"No. It was just like play ball. If you are in, then you are in. If you run, then you run. I don't even worry about carries or yards. I am just zoned in and playing."

San Francisco 49ers cornerback Emmanuel Moseley wasn't drafted, so he had to fight harder to prove himself during his rookie offseason in 2018. The hard work earned him a spot on the team's practice squad, and he was eventually promoted to the active roster for a game against the Oakland Raiders. But a shoulder injury landed him on injured reserve. Moseley earned a spot on the 53-man roster last year, thanks to a strong offseason and preseason. He is grateful for the opportunities to prove himself and realizes incoming undrafted rookies may not have the same chance this year. There have been no team-organized offseason practices due to the coronavirus

Nick Bosa is pretty special. The San Francisco 49ers pass rusher was so impressive during his rookie campaign that he was named the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year.

So, I'm just going to keep setting them high, and just keep working my butt off. I know the work that I'm putting in now is going to show up, and I think I'm going to be a much-smarter player next year.
