CJ Beathard shows off arm with 83-yard TD strike

Postgame interviews featured smiles and positivity rather than the discouragement that has commonly filled those media-player interactions. "It was tough work for us to get our first win and we got it", Shanahan said afterwards. While I guess there's still a possibility, head coach Kyle Shanahan said that he doesn't have a plan yet for Garoppolo to start. "I feel very good".

And if I was in Garoppolo's shoes, unless this was always the plan that he wouldn't be playing, I would be looking around thinking I made a huge mistake in wanting out of New England to sit on the bench for the worst team in the league. How would I want people to see her?' So I treat them with utmost respect and treat them with as much love as I can because obviously you never know when your time is (up).

For now, it's Beathard's show, and also his chance to prove he can be a starter.

He not only hurt the Giants on that 83-yard play, the 49ers' longest touchdown pass since 2005, but on the 49ers' next touchdown, a 47-yard pass play to Garrett Celek, Goodwin sprung Celek with a crunching block at the 25. "There's really nothing better".


Staley, who was expected to miss at least two games, will play Sunday against the Giants after he wasn't even listed on the injury report Friday. "There's nothing like it". Beathard wasn't sacked and was hit just twice after taking 16 licks against the Cardinals last week.

The 49ers finished the day rushing 33 times for a season-high 186 yards.

Breida carried nine times for 55 yards, and starting running back Carlos Hyde carried 17 times for 98 yards.

"That's not my plan", Shanahan said. "Mainly the quarterback, but also the O-Line, the receivers and the backs". Both the offense and defense fell apart, Eli Manning completed 28 of 37 for 273 yards with two touchdowns and a fumble.


Bradley Pinion, commonly one of the busiest guys on the roster this season, didn't have his first punt until midway through the fourth quarter. "We're trying our hardest to win this game". I think the guys knew how much it meant to me, and I knew how much it meant to them. "I'm glad that we were able to get him the ball, especially on a day like today for him. It's good to have it before a Bye week so we have two weeks to enjoy the 'W'".

Otherwise, Beathard played a clean game.

That's a whole lot easier to do after Sunday's win.
