Carlos Hyde on 95.7 The Game: Kaepernick is just a focused guy right now

Jun 23, 2016 at 4:57 PM--


On Thursday, San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde joined Dan Dibley and Rick Tittle on the Afternoon Delight show on 95.7 The Game.

When asked about his health, Hyde answered, "The health is 100 percent. I'm good to go. I had a good offseason, y'know, workout program with the team. No setbacks and everything is good to go."

Last season, Hyde suffered a stress fracture in his left foot, causing him to miss nine games. He finished 2015 with just 470 yards on 115 carries and three touchdowns. The injury was discovered by the media just prior to the team's Week 7 matchup with the Seattle Seahawks, a game that Hyde would end up playing in.

"It was tough sitting out those games, not being able to help my team out. I just wanted to make sure that when I came back, I was all the way healthy so I didn't have any setbacks so I can play the whole season," Hyde continued to say in regards to the injury.

When asked about the new coaching staff and the new offensive system being installed, Hyde reminded everyone that he had gone through transitions multiple times at Ohio State. "To me, it's just another opportunity to prove yourself to your coaches so they can build that trust and relationship with you and the coach so they can count on you," Hyde said. "I'm really looking forward to working with coach Kelly. It's been very exciting this offseason and he's a great coach, so I'm definitely looking forward to it."

Hyde went on to say that he loves head coach Chip Kelly and while he used to hear the bad remarks about him from other players, he doesn't see that and feels that he is a great coach. When discussing the fast tempo of practices, Hyde said, "At first it was tiring, but we got the hang of it and now, to me, things are slowing down."

Hyde was asked if negative comments about the 49ers ownership or management impacts him or the players. "I don't really think about those things. The 49ers drafted me to come here and play running back, not discuss about what the GM and the owner of the team are doing. That's not my responsibility. My thing is to be the best running back I can and help my team win games," he answered.

No interview would be complete without a question about Colin Kaepernick. He was asked if he expects the quarterback to be with the team this year. "He's there every day with us. I definitely expect him to be with us this year. He's there grinding every day," said Hyde. "To me, he's just a focused guy right now, trying to get himself right so he can show people what he's capable of."

Jimmy Garoppolo is better than Carson Wentz right now, says ESPN host

Jimmy Garoppolo could become a top-10 NFL quarterback. That's what Max Kellerman of ESPN's First Take believes. To do so, he'll still need to prove himself in the playoffs. Garoppolo has shown himself to be a clutch passer during the regular season. His playoff-game performances earlier this year, however, have fueled the criticism from his doubters. The Philadelphia Eagles have a franchise quarterback by the name of Carson Wentz, a 27-year-old signal-caller who many believe to be a rising star in the league. If Kellerman were to rank NFL quarterbacks right now, he might have to put Garoppolo ahead of Wentz. That caused a bit of a heated

The 49ers Are Better Off Passing on Adams and Sticking with Tartt as Things Sit Right Now

(This is a follow up to an earlier article that explained the 49ers can afford Jamal Adams) Just because something can be acquired doesn't mean it should be. That is my stance when it comes to the idea of the San Francisco 49ers trading for the New York Jets' Jamal Adams. The 49ers have the capital needed to acquire Adams between the team's draft capital and current players. On some levels it make sense to do what it takes to add the All-Pro player but ultimately the team shouldn't. Incumbent strong safety Jaquiski Tartt is a free agent following the 2020 season. The 49ers have likely inquired about what kind of extension Tartt is seeking. The lack of news

George Kittle on Tuesday was listed as the NFL's best tight end after writer Jeremy Fowler conducted an extensive poll involving 50 league executives, coaches, scouts, and players. The latest top-10 ranking involves the quarterbacks. Jimmy Garoppolo was not part of that list. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback received just two votes from the 50 individuals polled, the same amount received by Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins but more than names like Derek Carr, Ryan
