The 49ers have made history losing 5 games in a row by 3 points or less. it’s been a tough season but so exciting! The 49ers vs Redskins started out with Kirk Cousins steam rolling Brian Hoyer to open the game with one brilliant drive after another. The 49ers front four of Deforest Buckner, Arik Amrstead, Earl Mitchell and Solomon Thomas were struggling to get pressure on Cousins almost the entire game. With plenty of time to locate, and find receivers behind an adequate run game from Chris Thompson and Samaje Perine, Cousins was able to orchestrate an adequate Skins short passing attack.
The Redskins offseason boosting of their offensive line provided plenty of protection from the 49ers young line. The 49ers however did take the deep passing game away from Cousins, and company with excellent play from Rashard Robinson, K’Waun Williams, Dontae Johnson, and several appearances from Akhello Witherspoon which was very encouraging. Cousins proceeded to take the 49ers apart in the open midfield area.
The most dramatic move in this game came when Brian Hoyer was suddenly pulled by Kyle Shanahan out of the game. He then inserted the 2017 3rd round draft pick C.J. Beathard. What’s more is that C.J. immediately changed the complexion of the 49ers offensive game within seconds of entering the game with nonstop positive moves. 49ers fans of whom have been begging for this change since week 2 are celebrating in this vid as if the team just landed a playoff berth!
It’s week 6 of a rebuild year, and the Niner empire is delighted the change has been made, while looking forward to the remainder of the season. The fact that the 49ers achieved a record setting fifth loss in a row by 3 points or less is not leaving any faces long. Some believe “The franchise quarterback” may now be on the 49ers roster. C.J. Beathard's rookie debut has impressed just about everyone. This is the happiest 49ersfans testimonial video after a loss that you will ever see.
