Despite career game, Raheem Mostert believes he could have done more to help 49ers vs. Ravens

Dec 5, 2019 at 9:40 AM--

Raheem Mostert had a career game this past weekend against the Baltimore Ravens. The team lost the road matchup at M&T Bank Stadium, but the San Francisco 49ers running back had career highs in carries (19) and rushing yards (146) while finding his way into the end zone once.

Mostert's 146 rushing yards are the most by a 49ers player since Carlos Hyde had 193 against the New York Jets on December 11, 2016. Still, it wasn't quite enough to satisfy a competitor like Mostert, who joined KNBR on Wednesday morning, because it didn't result in a victory.

"I actually asked myself this question," Mostert said on the "Murph and Mac" show. "Was it good enough to help the team? There was a couple of things that I could have done a little bit better, put the team in a better position to even kick a field goal.

"I had a 3rd-and-4, and I ran an outside zone to the right, and I only got three yards out of it. That's what ultimately made it a 4th-and-1. If I would have just got upfield and read the defense a little bit better, then I probably would have got that first down, and we would have been in a better position.

"I try to critique myself, and play my game, and see how I can help the team ultimately try to win."

Mostert went on to give a lot of credit to his offensive line, the tight ends, and the receivers for helping in the blocking and allowing him to achieve career numbers. The performance earned Mostert a FedEx Ground Player of the Week nomination.

'We have some unfinished business': Raheem Mostert discusses 49ers mindset on KNBR

Much has been said of the San Francisco 49ers' upcoming revenge tour. The team is looking to redeem itself for February's heartbreaking defeat in Super Bowl LIV when it was minutes away from finally winning the franchise's sixth championship. Maybe "revenge tour" isn't the right term, with all due respect to All-Pro tight end George Kittle. Raheem Mostert prefers to think of it as the 49ers having some unfinished business. The running back joined KNBR on Thursday morning and shared his thoughts on the team's mentality heading into an uncertain 2020 season. "Like I said in those calls yesterday, our mindset right now is we left some stuff out there on that field in the big stage," Mostert told Mark Willard and Paulie Mac, "and what better way to go

'We'll figure it out': John Lynch believes 49ers' championship-caliber roster is 'sustainable' despite salary-cap uncertainty

Earlier this year, NFL teams were expecting a significant salary-cap increase in 2021. A new collective bargaining agreement (CBA) between the league and the NFL Players Association (NFLPA) had been struck, and future television contracts should have increased revenue opportunities, and with it, the ability to spend more on players. Then COVID-19 happened. Here we are, entering the sixth month of a pandemic. The timeframe is longer if you look at the worldwide impact. The coronavirus has impacted everyone's daily lives, and the sports world has not been immune to the effects. There probably won't be fans in NFL stadiums. Teams that are allowed to have the public attend games will have to limit the number of spectators. That will impact
