Are the 49ers still a playoff team?

 C.J. Beathard thinks so The San Francisco 49ers were nowhere near sniffing a Super Bowl before the 2018 season began. Once Jimmy Garoppolo went down with an ACL injury [url=http://www.49erscheapstore.com/alfred-morris-jersey-cheap]Youth Alfred Morris Jersey[/url] , the optimism of sniffing a wild card berth dropped as well. Don’t tell that to C.J. Beathard though, he still thinks the 49ers are a playoff team despite all the injuries blanketing the squad. He was Damon Bruce’s guest on 95.7 The Game and had this to say about the team’s playoff chances: The 49ers aren’t circling the drain as far as playoff hopes are concerned, but they aren’t separating themselves from the rest of the NFC either. Winning the division would require some insane theatrics with the lead—and talent by extension— the Los Angeles Rams have. To win the wild card, the 49ers would need to start winning—which is easier said than done. To finish out the first half of their schedule, the 49ers play the Arizona Cardinals twice [url=http://www.49erscheapstore.com/solomon-thomas-jersey-cheap]Cheap Solomon Thomas Jersey[/url] , the Green Bay Packers and the Los Angeles Rams. Three of those games (Cardinals and Packers) are winnable. The Packers have several issues right now, most notable being a great quarterback with a bad knee and no one to throw to in Aaron Rodgers, while the Cardinals ... well, they’re the Cardinals. If the 49ers can win the next three of four games, that puts them at 4-4 and at .500 to start the second half of their schedule. The second half was anticipated as being easier [url=http://www.49erscheapstore.com/deforest-buckner-jersey-cheap]Cheap DeForest Buckner Jersey[/url] , however teams such as the Chicago Bears and Tampa Bay Buccaneers have shown it’s not going to be as easy as it once was at the start of the season. If you take into consideration the 49ers are inundated with injuries, it’s even harder. Do you see the 49ers as a playoff team this season?Golden Nuggets: Is this all a dream? I woke up today after a dream where Jimmy Garoppolo threw great passes and had that Jimmy G grin on each one. The crowd cheered, Jerick McKinnon danced into the endzone. Then I woke up and realized that was all a dream. Now we get to watch C.J. Beathard—which is the smart choice. Get development for the other guys. But It made me think of a rather funny moment. When Garoppolo came in under center, he ushered in an era of hope. The entire mood of the team changed. He quickly ran and threw a last second touchdown to show—the 49ers were coming back to relevance. By comparison, when Beathard came in in the last seconds of the Kansas City game [url=http://www.49erscheapstore.com/k_waun-williams-jersey-cheap]http://www.49erscheapstore.com/k_waun-williams-jersey-cheap[/url] , he managed a touchdown pass of his own, but one that got nullified due to a ridiculous pass interference penalty. The Tides of Darkness have returned. And yet, I’m a bit optimistic. Not playoff optimistic, but I don’t feel like the 49ers are going to win only two games this year without Jimmy G. I think Beathard has something to prove. At least we get prime time games. Onto your links: Source: 49ers work out seven QBs, including E.J.
