Stories from Grant Cohn

Not only did the 49ers win, they blew out the Giants. Outscored them 31-13 until late in the fourth quarter, when the Giants scored in garbage time.
The Giants defense gave up 51 points to the Rams a week ago.
When the 49ers released Brian Hoyer, they were left with only two QBs on the active roster.
GM John Lynch didn’t get a long-term deal with his new QB, which gave the player 100 percent of the leverage.
Under no circumstances should the 49ers play their QB of the future at any point this season.
Penalties, turnovers and dropped passes have earned this team an 0-7 record.
Even at 0-6, there seemed reasons to be optimistic, but that all changed when the Cowboys showed up.
Beathard played well against the Redskins last week, but they weren't prepared to face him.
'I don't believe that there's base to that claim that he's being blackballed,' Jed York said.
Is C.J. Beathard the guy or not? That's what the rest of the 49ers’ season is about now.
