San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde spoke to the media following Wednesday's practice. Hyde will likely be an integral part of Chip Kelly's system which includes an offense that heavily relies on the run. During Kelly's three seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles, his teams have ranked 1st (2013), 9th (2014), and 14th (2015) in rushing. The 49ers ranked 21st last season under former coach Jim Tomsula following rankings of 4th (2014) and 3rd (2013) in previous years under Jim Harbaugh.

Hyde was asked how he thinks he will fit in Kelly's system. "I think to me, it's the same responsibility as last year. Being that overall back, the whole complete back, running, blocking, catching, just doing the right thing," he responded.

Hyde stated that the best way for him to stay healthy would be to stay in the best shape possible and take care of his body. He mentioned that he had lost some weight and was looking to be between 220 and 225 pounds entering training camp. When asked if he would need to change his running style, Hyde responded by saying, "I don't need to change my running style at all. I play the way I play. I don't think I need to change it at all."

When asked about the 2015 season, specifically the first game of the season where Hyde's performance was likely the best 49ers highlight of the year, Hyde decided to pass on a response and said, "I'm not even going to talk about that no more."

Fans may see Hyde get more catches from his quarterback. "I definitely think I'll be involved in the passing game a lot more this year, which I'm excited about. I like playing receiver. Another opportunity to get out in space and get the ball in your hands," revealed Hyde. He has had 23 receptions for 121 yards in two seasons with the 49ers.

"In college, I didn't get that many opportunities to catch the ball but when the ball did come my way, I tried to make the most out of it," added Hyde while saying that his ability to catch may be something that is often overlooked.

As far as the amount of time Hyde is on the field, he expressed his expectation to be a three down running back. He wants to always be on the field and always be in the game. "I definitely hold myself to being that three down back," said Hyde.

Thursday night was a fun one at Levi's Stadium, where the San Francisco 49ers cruised to a 30-12 victory over the visiting New York Giants. It was a night that saw wide receiver Deebo Samuel declare himself as officially out of "awful" mode, running back Christian McCaffrey reach milestones, wide receiver Ronnie Bell create some lasting memories, and -- of all things -- Andrew Luck making a return to an NFL field (in full Civil War costume) to take part in a game of trivia. Let's recap all that and more in this version of 49ers Notebook. Not awful anymore Back in June, Deebo Samuel caught some attention with his honest description of his 2022 performance

49ers demolish Giants in Week 3 victory: Key takeaways

By Marc Adams

It's hard to think of the New York Giants without some painful postseason memories. And that's why it's always so sweet to beat them soundly. And the San Francisco 49ers did just that on Thursday night, winning 30-12, and improving to 3-0 on the season. Although the score was relatively close at halftime, it wasn't as close statistically. And by the end of the game, it was even more lopsided—on the scoreboard and on the stat sheet. When you have more YAC (yards after the catch/contact) than the other team has total yards, you've thoroughly beaten your opponent. The Giants had 150 yards of total
