San Francisco 49ers: 3 Reasons Why C.J. Beathard Improves in 2018

There’s very little confidence with San Francisco 49ers fans after Jimmy Garoppolo’s season-ending ACL injury in Week 3. As the apparent savior in San Francisco has fallen, a familiar face will step in as the starting quarterback.

This will be C.J. Beathard.

As fans remember, Beathard was thrust into the starting role as a rookie last season, as Brian Hoyer went on to be benched early in Week 6 against the Washington Redskins. He would continue to start for the 49ers, as he gave them their first win of the season before being benched in favor of Garoppolo in Week 13.

His performance during his time as the starter didn’t go as planned. He completed 54.9 percent (31st in the league) of his passes for 1,430 yards. He also came away with four touchdowns to six interceptions. The biggest blemish in his stat line is the 69.2 passer rating (31st in the league).

However, don’t let these stats make you think he can’t run this offense. Beathard has his teammates behind him for a reason right now.

Here are three reasons why Beathard improves in 2018.
