Carlos Hyde discusses his career-high game against the Jets

Dec 11, 2016 at 6:23 PM--


How were you guys able to get so many yards on the ground?

"Being decisive, trusting what you see, and just hitting. A few runs hit outside and the receivers did a good job of blocking and getting me one-on-one with the safety. Make him miss, and I'm off to a big game."

What changed in the second half?

"I just think the Jets came out and played harder. Nothing changed with us. We still had some success in our run game. I just think the Jets came out and played a little harder in the second half."

How did you think the offensive line did?

"I think they did a great job today. I had a career-high today, so hats off to those guys. Without them, I wouldn't have had that. The receivers did a hell of a job, too."

On the fourth-and-two play at the end in overtime, is that kind of a bread-and-butter play for you guys?

"That's a play we've been running all game. The Jets just played good defense right there. Not taking anything away from them, they did a good job filling up all the holes. I didn't have a lane where I could go. I just tried to hit it up in there and tried to get a push, but they did a good job there."

The offense exploded in the first half but had five straight punts in the second half. What is it going to take for that to carry over in the third and fourth quarters?

"Just keep fighting. In the second half, just come out the way we did in the first half. Play fast. Even though we were up 14 points, we've just got to keep going. We've got to get a lot more points than that. It's easy for a team to come back in and, as you've seen today, come out and tie the game and go overtime. If we would stay on it and score some points we wouldn't have been in that position."

This team was already without San Francisco 49ers T Joe Staley but to lose San Francisco 49ers C Daniel Kilgore, TE Vance McDonald, and WR Torrey Smith in the game, how much did that change things late?

"Those are all starters right there. It hurts, but we've got some young guys that will step up. Next man up. These young guys get back in practice next week, work on their technique and get better, and get ready for Sunday.'"

You win and lose as a team. Individually, can you even let yourself think about the day you had running downhill?

"It doesn't really matter. I'd take the win over the stats any day. I really wanted to win that one. I wanted to win all of them. The stats don't really matter. I'm just trying to win.'"

San Francisco 49ers head coach Chip Kelly blamed conservative play-calling partly on the loss. Do you guys notice when he says things like that? Do you guys care? Does it bother you?

"No. It's my job to execute the play, not worry about what coach is calling or whether it's conservative or not. I have to go out there and execute it. I feel like if we go out there and execute it at the end of the play, it's a good play."

With the way things have been going for this team, is there any feeling that creeps in late in a close game like this, like here we go again? Any thoughts start creeping in?

"No, not for me at all. Just go out there and keep playing. We were up and when it went into overtime, I had a good feeling that we were going to at least get some type of points out of it but we didn't. That's part of the game. Just keep fighting, we'll be all right."

'It's a big concern this year': 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan discusses Javon Kinlaw's injury, development setback

By David Bonilla

Some fans are a bit too quick to write off defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw, feeling that he is yet another first-round misstep by the San Francisco 49ers. However, head coach Kyle Shanahan still believes in him and feels the defender's injury setbacks can still be overcome. Kinlaw entered the draft as a raw but physically gifted prospect that could develop into a force along the defensive line. That development has been stalled as the 49ers do what they can to manage the second-year player's injury. Kinlaw sustained a knee injury on December 20, 2020, against the Dallas Cowboys, forcing him to miss the season's final two games. He underwent a procedure after the 2020 season and then had what was described as a minor procedure to reduce swelling in the knee later in



Greg Cosell has thoughts on why the 49ers ran Trey Lance so often in his first start

San Francisco 49ers players aren't around their Santa Clara headquarters right now because the team is on its bye week. However, they will return next week to begin preparations for the Indianapolis Colts. The off time is a good opportunity to listen to analysts like Greg Cosell, who joined KNBR today and shared his thoughts on rookie quarterback Trey Lance's first start this past weekend, a 17-10 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. What did the respected long-time analyst think of the 21-year-old's starting debut? Lance ran the football 16 times for 89 yards, which was a bit unexpected considering head coach Kyle Shanahan had said that fans could expect the rookie looking more like a quarterback and less like a running back in the game,



Joe Staley hoped to 'pass the torch' to DeForest Buckner, says 49ers miss his leadership

By David Bonilla

Former San Francisco 49ers tackle Joe Staley, now an analyst with NBC Sports Bay Area, shared the story of how he learned about the DeForest Buckner trade last year. Needless to say, he was shocked. Staley had hoped for Buckner to carry on the leadership role after the offensive lineman decided to retire. "Back in March, I had made the decision with my family that I was going to retire and step away from the football field," Staley said during the 49ers pre-game show. "And DeForest was one of the first players that I wanted to go talk to. I kind of wanted to pass the torch a little bit, [say], 'This is going to be your team now,' because he's looked at and viewed on that team as being the culture set or the leader of that squad. "He flipped it on me when I



John Lynch 'fully confident' 49ers can rebound from 3-game losing streak

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers started 2-0 but have since lost three consecutive games. No one inside the organization is panicking, though. Instead, the focus remains on one game at a time. That means looking toward the Indianapolis Colts, not backward at the Green Bay Packers, Seattle Seahawks, and Arizona Cardinals. At 2-3, San Francisco sits in last place within the NFC West. However, general manager John Lynch is confident he and head coach Kyle Shanahan have built a roster that can rebound. The 49ers are in their bye week, and a lot of football remains in this 17-game season. "I'm fully confident [the pieces are in place to turn things around] because of the people in our room and the character of the people in our room, because of the people we have in leadership
