Golden Nuggets: Enter the Beathard

Your San Francisco 49ers links for Saturday, September 29th 2018

Well, one more day and we get to see the 2019 version of C.J. Beathard. Two things going into this, because I’ve written at length about all of this madness (and I’m still not done); 1) Thank goodness it’s no longer his rookie season because even Peyton Manning had a subpar rookie season (56.7 completion percentage, 26 touchdowns, 28 interceptions) 2) As atrocious as last season was for him, at least he got some playing time. This year the first game jitters will have worn off and it won’t be near as overwhealming with the above going on. A while back I said Beathard got the best situation he could ask for, starting, then going to the bench as a backup. He got a taste of the NFL game which makes him a far better backup than someone who is green and coming into things when games matter.

These games aren’t en route to a Super Bowl appearance, but at least Beathard can run the offense to Shanahan’s specifications. Some games this year are going to be bad, but they won’t be near as bad as think they can be thanks to Beathard’s experience.

Let’s hope for improvement.
