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."

Grateful Richard Sherman calls his time with 49ers 'very positive'

It's very clear that San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman expects to be with another team in 2021. He'll hit free agency in a month, and the three-time first-team All-Pro will begin his hunt for one last contract before calling it a career. "I only want to play two more (seasons)," Sherman told ESPN's Stephen A. Smith last week. "I want to get on a competitive team. I think I still have a lot to give to the game. I think I still have a lot that I want to accomplish, and I think I can go out there and help a defense come together like it should, and reach their potential, reach the heights that the defenses that I've played on have



Seahawks LB and impending free agent K.J. Wright sees no issues with 49ers

Seattle Seahawks fans already had to endure three years of watching cornerback Richard Sherman in red and gold, which looks less odd now than it did when he made his San Francisco 49ers debut. Could the Pacific Northwest handle another fan-favorite crossing over to the division rival? If you think the 49ers will have to do some creative maneuvering to stay under the salary cap — whatever the limit ends up being — the rest of the NFC West is in worse situations. San Francisco's over $13 million in projected cap space leads the division, per OverTheCap.com. The Arizona Cardinals look to have under $12 million, the Seattle Seahawks just over $4 million, and the Los Angeles Rams — well, they



NFC West news: Russell Wilson names desired destinations, should Seahawks consider a trade

Russell Wilson isn't happy with his situation in Seattle. Earlier this month, the Seahawks quarterback expressed his frustration to reporters. "I'm frustrated with getting hit too much," Wilson said. Michael-Shawn Dugar, Mike Sando, and Jayson Jenks of The Athletic report that the quarterback has discussed those frustrations with team decision-makers multiple times and even offered up ideas to fix the situation. Those suggestions were reportedly dismissed, leaving Wilson more frustrated with the organization. Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports first reported Wilson's growing discontent, naming several potential trade destinations. "[Wilson and Carroll] have made the playoffs every season but one, won a Super Bowl and lost another,"



49ers WR Travis Benjamin after a year away: "I can't wait to get back to football"

The San Francisco 49ers signed speedy former Browns and Chargers wide receiver Travis Benjamin to a one-year, $1.05 million contract last April. He was excited to be reunited with head coach Kyle Shanahan. San Francisco was so confident that Benjamin could contribute that it was willing to trade away its fastest wideout, Marquise Goodwin, during the draft. Just over a month later, tragedy hit Benjamin's family. The COVID-19 pandemic, which has been going strong for nearly a year now, had hit home. The receiver lost his 77-year-old grandmother to complications from the virus. That changed Benjamin's outlook. "I was ready for the season,"
