Beathard, not Garoppolo, named 49ers starter v Seahawks

November 23 2017 12:44 AM

Quarterback C.J. Beathard has been named the starter again for the San Francisco 49ers this Sunday, coach Kyle Shanahan announced on Wednesday.

Rumors had been swirling that Shanahan would give newly acquired Jimmy Garappolo the chance to start after the team's bye week, but Shanahan said he is not ready.

"Jimmy gets more and more ready each week," Shanahan said in his media conference. "Is Jimmy going to be the best he can? To me, that's impossible. He hasn't been here long enough.

"I don't think we're going to see Jimmy's best football, to be fair to him, until next year. That's what guys need. But C.J. did play his best football last week, which definitely made the decision easier."

The 49ers have had Garoppolo for almost a month after they traded a 2018 second-round pick to the New England Patriots on October 30.

Beathard claimed his first NFL win - and the first victory for the 49ers this season - in Week 10 against the New York Giants.
