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."

49ers OC Mike McDaniel focused on beating the Cowboys, not head coaching jobs

The Miami Dolphins requested to interview San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Mike McDaniel for their head coaching vacancy. Obviously, that's a big opportunity for the 38-year-old coach in his first season as an offensive coordinator. However, the valuable knowledge he has learned from head coach Kyle Shanahan could soon make him a hot commodity. McDaniel doesn't have time to think about any of that right now, though. Instead, he's focused on Sunday's road playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys. After Thursday's practice, the coordinator was asked about juggling preparing for the game and thinking about the head coaching opportunity, and his response should set 49ers fans' minds at ease. "Yeah, it has [come to my attention], but as far as juggling, there



'I just don't want this to end anytime soon': Jimmy Garoppolo's final chapter with 49ers isn't over yet

Earlier this season, Jimmy Garoppolo didn't want to close the door on a possible return to the San Francisco 49ers in 2022. Most believe the team will unload the veteran quarterback and his hefty salary and transition to the No. 3 overall pick in last year's draft, Trey Lance. "Honestly, with the possibilities, I try not to close any doors too early," Garoppolo said in November. "It's one of those situations, you've just got to let it play out, I think. We've got a lot going on with the season and everything right now. If you start thinking about those other things, you just get distracted, I think. But when we cross that bridge, we'll assess everything



49ers' Deebo Samuel to Kyle Shanahan before TD run vs. Cowboys: 'Just give me the ball. I got you.'

Deebo Samuel has become a very confident player for the San Francisco 49ers. He is willing to do whatever it takes to get the football in his hands and make a play. Samuel is a wide receiver but lines up as a running back too. He led the 49ers with eight rushing touchdowns this season. Samuel had another rushing touchdown during Sunday's 23-17 playoff win against the Dallas Cowboys. That one was impressive, as it involved Samuel improvising on the play and turning back inside to get into the end zone. That wasn't how the play was drawn up, by the way. How did Deebo even find this hole? 😱



49ers more excited about Trey Lance now than when they drafted him, says John Lynch

Trey Lance has primarily spent his first NFL season as a student, learning the game. He's had two starts in place of an injured Jimmy Garoppolo but has spent most game days on the sideline as an observer. San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch has benefited from watching Lance in practices all season and witnessing his development. On Friday morning, Lynch joined 95.7 The Game and was asked how he would evaluate the rookie's first season. "I think it's been awesome," Lynch responded. "And a lot of people, I'm sure, are like, 'Man, this guy's crazy. What do you mean? He hasn't played that much.' But we had a plan for Trey, and I think the plan was to take it week by week. And we just wanted to see constant growth and development. "The thing
