6 takeaways from the 49ers’ Week 4 loss to the

Chargers Before the game began Mike McGlinchey Jersey White , if I told you that the San Francisco 49ers would lose left tackle Joe Staley, wide receiver Dante Pettis and play with a hobbled right tackle Mike McGlinchey, most would have predicted a blowout in favor of the Los Angeles Chargers. Yet, late into the fourth quarter, the 49ers had multiple chances to steal a win on the road with their backup quarterback C.J. Beathard leading the team. Coming into Sunday’s contest, the keys for a 49ers’ victory included a strong rushing attack and a “bend, don’t break” defensive effort, but Kyle Shanahan’s squad could not execute in either of those departments.Running back Matt Breida only rushed for 39 yards on nine carries, while backup Alfred Morris only gained 14 yards on four attempts. It’s usually not a good sign when a team’s non-mobile quarterback is the second-leading rusher for the team. The 49ers only ran 21 running plays, in comparison to Beathard’s 37 passing attempts on Sunday. As currently constructed, Shanahan’s team isn’t constructed to win playing this style of football. Robert Saleh’s group wasn’t productive on Sunday either, missing more tackles (2018 season’s unfortunate theme) and letting Chargers’ quarterback Phillip Rivers carve them up. It didn’t help that corner Richard Sherman and safety Jaquiski Tartt were not playing with various injuries, but it seemed like the 49ers were thoroughly outplayed on defense. A lack of a threatening pass rush, combined with poor tackling ability is a nightmare for a defensive coordinator. As San Francisco prepares to host the win-less Arizona Cardinals next weekend, here are some key takeaways from the 49ers’ close loss in Los Angeles. 1. QB C.J. Beathard is playing an unsustainable brand of football.Just scanning over the box score, it looks like Beathard had an above average performance, completing 23 of 37 passing attempts for 298 yards, including two touchdowns and two interceptions. The weirdest statistic on the box score is that Beathard only took one sack for a loss of 10 yards.Huh?
