The San Francisco 49ers stayed winless after dropping their Week 6 contest against the Washington Redskins 26-24. Niner Noise breaks down the good, bad and ugly, including the switch at quarterback from Brian Hoyer to C.J. Beathard.
On one hand, the San Francisco 49ers are vastly more competitive now than what we saw under former head coach Chip Kelly a year ago at this time.
But on the other, head coach Kyle Shanahan and Co. remain winless six weeks into 2017.
The 0-6 Niners have lost their last five contests by a combined 13 points, which is incredible to think about. And in the last two games, San Francisco has overcome some major early deficits to be in position to actually take the lead late.

It didn’t happen, though, as the 49ers fell to the Washington Redskins 26-24.
There are plenty of takeaways from this contest, but the biggest is Shanahan making the switch from an ineffective Brian Hoyer to rookie quarterback C.J. Beathard midway through the second quarter.
Beathard looked like a rookie, at times, but he also sparked the Niners offense in a way Hoyer hasn’t been able to for most of the season.
So that’s good, and we’ll kick off this week’s edition of the “good, bad and ugly” with what Beathard did well.
