Well, whether we want it or not, it’s game day and time to see how C.J. Beathard can do in his second season. If this keeps up, I’m going to make a new theory that all seasons lead to Beathard, but for now, I’m going to try and be supportive of my other theory that he’s going to surprise some people.
This was a game I thought the 49ers could win, and that opinion has taken a complete 180. I don’t know what they can do now with the loss of Jimmy G, but we’re about to find out. Two wins this season is all we’d need from Beathard to see improvement, but with the defense banged up, I don’t see one today. I do hope I’m wrong.
