Surprise, Beanie Wells Hates the 49ers

Beanie Wells wards off would-be tacklers during the Cardinals' first game against the 49ers last year, which the Cards lost.

Check out this story posted by Matt Loede, who wrote that it “seems there is a Cardinal out there who isn’t that big of a fan of the 49ers, as Cardinals RB Beanie Wells says he out and out has “instant hate” for the Niners.”

There have been more than a few Arizona Cardinals to share their feelings on the San Francisco 49ers and Beanie Wells is no different. ‘To be quite honest, I hate the 49ers,’ Wells told Sports 620 KTAR’s Doug & Wolf when talking about their NFC West division rival. The running back has no specific reasoning for his hatred and never had anything against them before he was drafted by the Cardinals. ‘I have no clue, once I got here and put on this Cardinal uniform it was like instant hate for the 49ers,’ he said. ‘I’m looking forward to playing them this year and getting after it.’ In Wells’ rookie year the Cardinals lost to the 49ers in both meetings despite winning the NFC West. Wells led the Cardinals in rushing during that rookie season but is expecting an increase in production this season. ‘Mainly my goal is to come in and be a lot more productive than I was last year,’ Wells said. The offense is expected to be tailored more to the running game with the retirement of quarterback Kurt Warner.”

Emotions will definitely run high when these two teams first lock up as many believe the 49ers seem closer to an NFC West title than ever.  Beanie now joins the list of Cardinals that have openly expressed a distaste for the division rival 49ers.   Dockett’s feud with San Francisco tight end Vernon Davis has been well documented and stuff like this will likely be added to an already crowded bulletin board in the teams’ respective locker rooms.
