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."

Jim Trotter breaks down why 49ers are high on DeMeco Ryans

The San Francisco 49ers promoted DeMeco Ryans to defensive coordinator after Robert Saleh left to become the head coach of the New York Jets. Ryans was asked in June what fans can expect to see from his defense this season. Was he planning to follow the same blueprint that Saleh laid out, or were some bigger changes on the horizon? "Our defense will be a fast, attacking, aggressive defense," Ryans responded. "I want guys to play fast. I want guys who are smart. I want guys who are going to play physical. That's one thing for me is just growing up, watching the 49ers play defense. The defense has always stood out here. This has been a defensive organization. They



Jets coach Robert Saleh shares what makes 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan so unique

When it came time for the New York Jets head coach to speak to his team following an early offseason practice, Robert Saleh stood there behind his players, waiting to hear what would be said. Then he remembered ... "Oh shoot, that's me," Saleh said to himself. The story is similar to San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan nearly forgetting to name team captains before his first preseason game. "Honestly, if someone hadn't asked me, I probably would have been sitting there looking out at the coin toss and wondering why no one was out there," Shanahan said on



49ers LB Fred Warner says his goals remain set to the 'highest standard'

Fred Warner was overwhelmed by over 200 text messages and calls from friends and colleagues on Wednesday when news broke that the San Francisco 49ers were signing him to a massive five-year extension, making him the highest-paid linebacker in the NFL. The newfound riches won't change his attitude, though. Instead, Warner will continue working to earn the respect of his peers and do whatever he can to contribute to the team goal of winning a championship. "My goals and aspirations are always going to be set to the highest standard, higher than anybody else can put on me," Warner told reporters on Thursday. "And that holds true to the season, even before this contract was set and done. My (personal) goals and my goals for this team, they don't change. So that's what's exciting,

Jimmy Garoppolo is expected to be the starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers when the team opens the regular season on September 12 against the Detroit Lions. How long he remains the starter is the question. San Francisco traded up to draft Garoppolo's eventual successor, Trey Lance, at No. 3 overall. He will bring a much different dynamic to head coach Kyle Shanahan's offense. The inexperienced quarterback just needs time to learn and master the playbook and scheme. We asked our 49ers Webzone contributors to predict when Lance will get his first start. Below are the responses in the order in which they were received.
