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."

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch spoke with reporters for the first time since signing wide receiver Deebo Samuel to a three-year contract extension valued at up to $73.5 million. The conversation took place via a conference call on Tuesday morning. "I can't tell you how happy we are as an organization, how proud, really, that I am of Deebo Samuel," Lynch said. "... There's something magnetic about his personality, not just his play, but about the way he carries himself, that smile, all those things. Then what he's done for this organization. ... His play is incredibly inspirational." Getting to this point wasn't easy, though. In April, Samuel even requested to be traded. That came after the All-Pro receiver removed all 49ers-related photos from his



Deebo Speaks: 49ers' Samuel discusses contract extension, offseason drama

The last time Deebo Samuel spoke to the media publicly was in Los Angeles during the week leading to Super Bowl 56. Since then, he removed San Francisco 49ers-related photos from his Instagram account, requested to be traded, and generated a lot of offseason media chatter. On Monday, Samuel officially signed a massive three-year extension that will keep him with the Niners through 2025. His media drought ended a day later. The wide receiver was among the players who spoke with reporters after Tuesday's practice. "Besides the money, I just love the game," Samuel said after being asked what his new deal means to him. "I love being out here. I love this team, the coaching staff, and what we have here as an organization." Samuel added: "Once I got the



Plan for Trey Lance vs. Vikings depends on next week; 49ers QB discusses first-ever slide

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance played two drives during Friday's 28-21 preseason win over the Green Bay Packers. This week, head coach Kyle Shanahan said the plan for Lance was to play in Week 1 and Week 3 of the preseason schedule, skipping the August 20 game against the Minnesota Vikings. For now, that "most likely" remains the plan, Shanahan told reporters after Friday night's game. That could change based on how next week goes, though. The 49ers will hold joint practices with the Vikings at the TCO Performance Center in Eagan, Minnesota. "We'll see how it goes, but I'm a lot more into the Wednesday and Thursday practice than the game on

Not everything was perfect for the San Francisco 49ers in their 28-21 win over the Green Bay Packers on Friday night, but there's no doubt the vibe coming out of the win was mostly positive. Trey Lance and the other 49ers quarterbacks played well in the win, going a combined 15-of-22 for 212 yards, three touchdowns and zero interceptions. A number of rookie players got extended reps, and several of them did a fine job with their opportunities. Following the game, head coach Kyle Shanahan talked about those issues and more, while Lance, rookie cornerback Samuel Womack and wide receiver Ray-Ray McCloud were among those to meet with reporters. Here's a rundown of some of the key issues discussed, including what Shanahan thinks of Womack's performance to this point,
