Welcome to the SF 49ers EXTRA podcast on TheSportsVirus.com!
Every Tuesday during the NFL season we chat with former 49ers QB Steve Bono. Today we discuss injury risk vs. reward for QB CJ Beathard who took 8 QB hits in the loss to the Chargers on Sunday.
Bono talked about why quarterbacks are willing to take injury risks when it comes to a QB fighting for a first down: … “I’ve always said that we’re trained as quarterbacks, it’s always 3rd and 10 and you’ve got to get the first down. So, you’re going to do whatever it takes to get the first down, whether it’s running the ball, throwing the ball, throwing it with your left hand. That’s how we’re wired.”
49ers QB CJ Beathard will be back with us next week after the Arizona game. He’s going to be joining us on a regular basis this season.
Two weeks ago, CJ talked about being ready as Jimmy G’s backup: “…you have to prepare as if you are the guy because you’re a play away from being in there and getting all of the game reps…More than anything it’s watching film and staying in the film room. The quarterback position is more mental than anything else. The more film you get and watch on the defense, seeing what they do, when you get on the field it feels a lot better and more comfortable like you’ve seen it before.”
