C.J. Beathard puts 49ers up 11 to start fourth quarter

Members of the Giants defense willing to go on the record insisted all week that they haven’t quit on coach Ben McAdoo, but they continue to play like a unit that has little interest in continuing a season that opened with seven losses in eight games.

After giving up two long touchdown passes in the first half, the Giants showed a brief spark when Olivier Vernon intercepted a screen pass in the third quarter but the offense couldn’t get any points and the 49ers picked up where they left off with an 11-play, 61-yard touchdown drive that put them up 24-13 one play into the fourth quarter.

Quarterback C.J. Beathard ran 11 yards for the score as more than one Giant appeared to be making a decision not to tackle that could force Tony Romo and Deion Sanders to common ground. Beathard got his right hand checked out by members of the medical staff on the sideline. There didn’t seem to be much concern and Beathard returned to the field after the Giants punted the ball back after a few plays.

The 49ers have not punted and Beathard is 18-of-24 for 280 yards to go with those two touchdowns in his best outing as the team’s starter. The return of left tackle Joe Staley and right tackle Trent Brown also appears to be helping as Beathard has only been hit a few times after being blasted 16 times last weekend.

That won’t speed up Jimmy Garoppolo‘s arrival in the lineup, but a win is the biggest thing for the 0-9 49ers right now.

  1. McAdoo better enjoy the plane right home. He should read “Tale of Two Cities” on the trip so he can know what he’s in for.

    (He’s gonna get axed)

  2. The 49ers have to bear down and somehow snatch the loss from the jaws of victory.

    We know they can do it.

  3. What the Giants players don’t get is by quitting on the season half way through any of those players who are free agents after the season are not giving themselves a chance to get a lucrative contract with another team. In fact I would think it would make most teams take a pass on those players since they’re showing they don’t have what it takes to face adversity.

    He’s had 2 years of head coach money and if he’s been smart about it never has to work another day in his life if he doesn’t want to. I don’t think he has too much to be worried about. Especially since if his contract runs into next year most HC’s are guaranteed all pay, so he’ll get further millions while sitting at home.

    Agreed but nobody likes getting fired.

  6. I want to thank the New York Nightmaras for phoning it in today.

    You are the most disgusting team in the NFL right now.

    It is one thing to be a bad team like the Cleveland Dog Piles who have a history of fielding the worst teams ever.

    But you Nightmaras give up – you are a bunch of lazy, worthless, overrated collection of quitters ever seen on the field at the same time.

    I hope you retain Mr. Magoo as your head coach for the rest of the season because you will go 1-15 by doing so.

    On behalf of the teams in the NFC East, we are enjoying you being the laziest bunch of clowns ever. You are disgusting in your owner’s cheating claiming a salary cap existed in an uncapped year.

    Now you are getting the karma payback you deserve.

    And now you risk losing any hope of this team ever playing together again and you are one sack away from losing your QB for good.
