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."

'I thought Jimmy battled': Kyle Shanahan assesses Garoppolo after 49ers beat Packers

"Jimmy G, you can't say enough about that guy," tight end George Kittle told reporters after Saturday night's win over the Green Bay Packers to send the San Francisco 49ers to the NFC Championship Game. "The [expletive] that he takes, excuse my language, consistently, people just try to pull him down, and all he does is try to deliver. He leads this team, he has a sense of calm in the huddle, he has a sense of calm in the storm, and he allows us to play football at a high level." Jimmy Garoppolo is a polarizing figure, even within the 49ers fanbase. Some love him. A more vocal group points toward his inconsistent play as a reason to move on from the starting quarterback. The 49ers didn't win Saturday's game because of Garoppolo. Of course, it doesn't help that he

Jimmie Ward: Garoppolo gives 49ers a 'great chance' to beat Packers

A lot of people like to criticize Jimmy Garoppolo. He's not the type of quarterback who plays mistake-free football. However, he does win football games—a lot more than he loses. Garoppolo is 37-15 as a starter, counting the playoffs. Some will argue that often, the 49ers win games despite Garoppolo. This past weekend's playoff win against the Dallas Cowboys is a perfect example of that. Garoppolo tossed a costly interception that kept Dallas in the game, but the team held on for a 23-17 victory. Garoppolo is banged up, though. He was already playing through an injured right thumb that causes pain with each throw. In addition, Garoppolo suffered a right shoulder sprain in the game. Nevertheless, he's been practicing this week, and all signs point to him



How the 49ers can beat the Packers: Keys to Victory

By Chris Beno

Things haven't changed much for the Green Bay Packers since their Week 3 victory over the San Francisco 49ers at Levi's Stadium. The Packers are still very much that same team. The same can't be said for the 49ers, who have tweaked some things since their rocky start to the season. The 49ers went 3-5 through the first 9 weeks of the season, but since Week 10 they have won 9 of their last 11 games, which was the best record in the NFL during that span. When looking at the differences between the Week 3 49ers and the current team, three things jump out to me. 1. Defensive tackle Arik Armstead has been moved inside as opposed to being strictly an edge rusher. It's no coincidence that the 49ers have since been the top defense against the
