C.J. Beathard discusses time in Arizona, season’s lessons after Seahawks beat 49ers

Jan 3, 2021 at 7:10 PM--


San Francisco 49ers quarterback C.J. Beathard spoke with reporters after the team's 26-23 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Here is everything he had to say.

Transcript provided by the San Francisco 49ers Communications staff.

Through all the adversity you faced this season, what did you learn about yourself? And then, what did you learn about your teammates?

"I mean, I would just say first off, you know, you can battle through anything that's thrown at you in life. Whenever there are certain things that hit you, that you feel like you can't recover from or you feel like you'll never recover from, yeah you can. And I would just tell that to anybody out there who feels down in the dumps or something, if something happened in their life where they feel like they can't overcome it, you always can. With my teammates, I just appreciate the way they battled all year and I'm real proud of them. You know, we were put in a tough situation going to, here in Arizona for the last six or so weeks. Just the way they've handled it and came to work each day, I'm real proud of them for that."

I'm sure you guys would have loved to have started faster on offense. Obviously, that pass to WR Richie James seemed to spark you a little bit, but was there something that clicked as far as figuring out their defense or was it just kind of waking up?

"I mean, it was a little bit of both. The first couple of drives, they were calling the perfect, really the perfect coverage for the certain plays that we had on or whatnot. And credit to them, they were doing a good job. And then part of it just us not executing also. So yeah, a little bit of both."

I realize it may be too soon to ask this, but a year from now, when you look back on the Arizona, the Glendale experience, how do you think you'll remember it? What do you think will kind of stick in your mind for the coming years about that?

"Hopefully we don't ever have to do this again first off. But, there were some good times, some good memories here with the guys when you're all kind of bunked up in the same hotel you get to see them in passing a little bit. We weren't allowed to really hang out or whatever. So that kind of stunk, but overall, you learn from it and you get better from the situation you're put in."

Silver: Cornerstone pieces make the 49ers the team to beat in 2021

NFL Media analyst Michael Silver has a lot of belief in the San Francisco 49ers' chances of competing during the upcoming season. He feels head coach Kyle Shanahan's squad can bounce back from its disappointing injury-plagued 2020 campaign and has the pieces in place to become the team to beat in 2021. "I think they're going to come back strong," Silver told Steve Wyche and Judy Battista on NFL Network's Total Access. "You saw the bold move to trade up for the No. 3 pick. They're going to get a quarterback of Kyle Shanahan's choosing, and you're going to have a lot of difference-makers out there on that field." San Francisco has put itself in a position to acquire one of the top quarterback prospects in this month's draft. Right now, Justin Fields of



Schefter discusses the 49ers' plan for Jimmy Garoppolo

Justin Fields, Trey Lance, and Mac Jones. One of those quarterbacks is likely to be part of the San Francisco 49ers roster following the draft. Jimmy Garoppolo has been part of the roster since a mid-season trade in 2017 sent him from Foxborough to Santa Clara, where he is expected to remain for at least the upcoming season. Some wonder if plans could change, though. There were reports that the 49ers seek a first-round pick for Garoppolo. Most who have been following the team know that basically means San Francisco has no intention — for now — of trading its veteran quarterback and would have to be blown away by an offer to consider deviating from its plan. That plan is to have Garoppolo serve as a bridge quarterback, allowing the



"I'm going to support whoever's under center": Kyle Juszczyk discusses 49ers' draft trade for a QB

Jimmy Garoppolo is expected to be the quarterback under center when the San Francisco 49ers kick off Week 1 of the 2021 regular season. Down the road? Who knows. Garoppolo's future with the team became more uncertain when general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan traded up from the No. 12 spot to No. 3 overall in this year's NFL Draft. It is widely believed the move was made for a quarterback. San Francisco will be left with some good options despite two passers being expected to come off the draft board in the top two slots. Juszczyk, like so many of his teammates, has always supported Garoppolo and defended his quarterback against skeptics. He fully expected San Francisco to push forward with the 29-year-old passer who owns a record of 26-9 as an



Mike McDaniel discusses his new role as 49ers offensive coordinator

Mike McDaniel started working with Kyle Shanahan with the Houston Texans. He is one of the San Francisco 49ers head coach's most trusted assistants, serving as the team's run-game coordinator during his first four seasons in Santa Clara. In January, McDaniel was promoted to offensive coordinator, becoming the first coach under Shanahan to hold that title. "Immediately, you're trying to prove your worth and prove the people right that have really invested in you and invested in your career, and given you opportunities, and et cetera, et cetera," McDaniel recently told 49ers.com reporter Keiana Martin. "It instills a level of hunger on top of the hunger that you already had." After McDaniel
