Notable comments from the San Francisco 49ers after the Chargers’ 29-27 victory.
On Melvin Gordon…
“Gordon was playing well. He opened up in the second half. In the first half, he was kind of stumbling, but he still did great at the end of the day. It’s not how you start, it’s how you finish.” – LB Reuben Foster
On Isaac Rochell’s fourth quarter interception…
“I was trying to see if I could get it out before, but Derwin James is a good player and made a nice play.” – QB C.J. Beathard
“We just had five guys out, scat protection, I think we need to see that he is blitzing and get rid of the ball.” – Head Coach Kyle Shanahan
On the overall loss…
“We just lost a game. It doesn’t feel good. We just have to get back to work and watch the tape to correct our mistakes so we can fix them for next week.” – QB C.J. Beathard
“That is what we are all working for, to get wins and we only have one of them right now. We had an opportunity to win that game. There were lots of ups and downs throughout the game in all three phases. We had a chance (to win) at the end and we came up short. That’s disappoint.” – Head Coach Kyle Shanahan.
On C.J. Beathard’s performance…
“The last play was unfortunate. Wish we would have solved that and got rid of it. He gave us a chance to win today. Played very tough. Made some big plays, especially in some of the situations with guys going in and out. He handles a little adversity well, and a lot of chaos with some of the injuries. I was proud of how he played.” – Head Coach Kyle Shanahan
“He’s a tough competitor, as you can see. He’ll take the ball and run it, take big hits and get up and get back in the game. It is going to be hard to get C.J. (out of) the game. That is what is going to make him a great quarterback.” – RB Matt Breida
“He’s a badass. He’s good. C.J. has more grit than anyone that I know.” – TE George Kittle
