It's a blessing to be able to do it Cheap San Francisco 49ers Hats ," the New England quarterback said Friday as he awaits his 19th NFL season with Sunday's home game against the Houston Texans. "I love playing football. I love the sport and I've been doing it for a long time so I'm not sure what life would be like without it."He got a taste of that 10 years ago when he was lost for the season in the opening game and he was suspended for the first four games of the 2016 season for Deflategate."I've had a few experiences where I haven't been out there, and I haven't liked those very much," he said."I love playing football," he added. "I love being out there, the preparation, what it takes to be a great player. Those things are still very enjoyable for me and there's no place I'd rather be Sunday afternoon at 1 o'clock, playing here and playing well."Patriots running back James White says Brady comes ready to work every day."Competitor, from eating (right) to studying, to getting to know his teammates, he knows who everybody in this locker room inside and out," he said. "Just the way he works, you just want to emulate a guy like that — all the success that he's had in this league. He's a great leader for us and there's no better example that you want to follow."Brady, who recently said he'd like to play until he's 45, says his experience is a true asset as he seeks a sixth Super Bowl title."I think you can use it to a real advantage if you do things the right way Cheap San Francisco 49ers Hoodie ," he said. "I feel like I have a lot of experience, a lot of knowledge and I plan to use it. I mean, football's fun for me. I feel like I can go out there, I can anticipate a lot of things. I've seen all the coverages — we have a lot of answers to the test. Now you just got to go do it."Most athletes, by the time you get to a certain point you start to figure it out mentally and physically it becomes really hard. So, trying to be my best physically and be my best mentally and that's a good place to be."As for his conditioning, Brady says he is comfortable with his situation concerning his personal trainer, Alex Guerrero. Guerrero was removed from team flights last season but has reappeared as a sign of some sort of understanding involving coach Bill Belichick."We work together," Brady said. "I don't want to bring on any drama this year — just focus on what I want to do and be a great football player for this team and try to be a good example in the locker room and provide great leadership. That's where my focus is — I know we want to often times talk about a lot of other things, but I just really want to stick to football."Brady starts this season with Danny Amendola now in Miami and Julian Edelman suspended for the first four games for a PED violation. There are five wide receivers on the roster, two of them added in the last five days."I have confidence in them, certainly," he said. "Phillip (Dorsett) and Chris (Hogan) obviously I played a lot with them last year, Cordarrelle (Patterson) is new and he's done some good things Cheap Custom San Francisco 49ers Jerseys , obviously, the reason why he's here. He's a really good player and he's been productive in the league."To be on this team, you have to be a good football player and the guys that are out there certainly I have a lot of confidence in."Brady refused comment on the airing of Colin Kaepernick's first Nike ad, saying, "I really want to focus on football . get ready for the Texans. They're a great team."C.J. Beathard shined in the 49ers Week 4 loss amidst injuries, miscues around him There’s plenty of blame to go around in the San Francisco 49ers’ loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. Most of which can get passed around in the defensive meetings (READ: Tackling). One person that shouldn’t shoulder any of this blame is C.J. Beathard. Until the last drive of the first half, C.J. Beathard hovered around a 70 percent completion percentage. He finished his day with a 298 yards, a 62.2 completion rate with two touchdowns to two interceptions and a gazillion hits/pressures. Beathard, for all intents and purposes didn’t look bad. At all. Now, he’s no Jimmy Garoppolo, but there’s not much more Beathard could do on Sunday. One of his interceptions was a egregious drop by Garrett Celek.If caught, it could have been a touchdown depending on how much drive Celek could mount on the ensuing hit. The other was a hit as he threw the ball in the face of a nasty blitz that wound up in a defensive lineman’s hands. If you want to argue the second one, go ahead, but both of those were not ill-advised throws. In fact Nick Mullens 49ers Jersey , beyond those two, the passes Beathard threw were in windows and in places only his receivers could get them. Well, that is if they could catch it. One pass sailed over a defender in triple coverage into the hands of George Kittle, but the tight end couldn’t haul it in (Kittle more than made up for this blunder through the day). Another pass bounced off the hands of Pierre Gar莽on just as he got hit. Beathard did a solid job evading pressure, and sacks we would have seen in 2017 didn’t happen. But oh man, did he still take a beating. 8 hits in the pocket, one sack. And we’re not even talking about plays nullified by penalties and hits taken on his scrambling adventures.The 49ers offensive line was decimated by injuries early, with left tackle Joe Staley going to the locker room from a knee injury, center Weston Richburg suffering an early injury he gutted through, and even rookie right tackle Mike McGlinchey getting off the field. No line is going to hold up with that kind of injury turnover, and no quarterback not named Russell Wilson is staying upright. As one might expect, the line was porous with Beathard getting the ball out quickly and getting pancaked once it was out of his hands. Many times this led to roughing the passer penalties on the Chargers, but those hits can slow down a quarterback, and one hit in the 4th quarter almost meant the end of Beathard’s day. While Beathard was getting clocked Nick Mullens Jersey , and receivers weren’t catching the ball, Chargers running back Melvin Gordon shrugged off not one, not two, but three defenders for first downs (yes, this did in fact happen). He wasn’t the only one. There were some missed holding penalties for the Chargers offense to get going, but the 49ers defense continued to let the Chargers back into this game. Beathard managed to put up 20 points (not counting the seven spotted with the pick-six). What more do you need from him? And let’s not forget that brilliant 21-play, 72-yard drive. It ended in a field goal, but it didn’t end in an interception, did it?Sure, there were a few batted passes (the 4th quarter drives come to mind) but Beathard showed much improvement for his first start in 2018. Beyond improvement, Beathard’s own play didn’t cost the 49ers the game. The 49ers lost this game due to their injuries, offensive line issues, and defense—or lack thereof. There’s plenty of blame to go around for this—C.J. Beathard doesn’t deserve any of it.
