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."

Mike McDaniel started working with Kyle Shanahan with the Houston Texans. He is one of the San Francisco 49ers head coach's most trusted assistants, serving as the team's run-game coordinator during his first four seasons in Santa Clara. In January, McDaniel was promoted to offensive coordinator, becoming the first coach under Shanahan to hold that title. "Immediately, you're trying to prove your worth and prove the people right that have really invested in you and invested in your career, and given you opportunities, and et cetera, et cetera," McDaniel recently told 49ers.com reporter Keiana Martin. "It instills a level of hunger on top of the hunger that you already had." After McDaniel

If anyone had any doubts about the New York Jets potentially drafting quarterback Zach Wilson, those doubts might have been erased on Monday.

Rumor: Jets turned down 1st-round pick from 49ers for Sam Darnold

There is a rumor from Cecil Lammey of The Fan 104.3 and Football Guys that the New York Jets turned down a first-round pick offered by the San Francisco 49ers earlier this offseason for quarterback Sam Darnold (h/t to Matt Audilet of The Spun). Of course, this was when the Niners sat at No. 12 overall, before trading up last month to the No. 3 spot. What on Earth would keep Joe Douglas and company from jumping at an offer like that? Lammey states that there were some concerns surrounding Zach Wilson's shoulder, and the Jets wanted to wait until the former BYU quarterback's pro day to evaluate the shouder's status. Wilson's pro day was on March



Schefter discusses the 49ers' plan for Jimmy Garoppolo

Justin Fields, Trey Lance, and Mac Jones. One of those quarterbacks is likely to be part of the San Francisco 49ers roster following the draft. Jimmy Garoppolo has been part of the roster since a mid-season trade in 2017 sent him from Foxborough to Santa Clara, where he is expected to remain for at least the upcoming season. Some wonder if plans could change, though. There were reports that the 49ers seek a first-round pick for Garoppolo. Most who have been following the team know that basically means San Francisco has no intention — for now — of trading its veteran quarterback and would have to be blown away by an offer to consider deviating from its plan. That plan is to have Garoppolo serve as a bridge quarterback, allowing the
