Hyde ‘yo kids. Hyde ‘yo wife. El Guapo is the new RB in town.

Not exactly. It’s the official start of Carlos Hyde’s second NFL season, but after being in the shadow of 49ers legend Frank Gore last year, and after a solid first outing, it looks like the Ohio State-product is ready to break out.

WATCH THE HIGHLIGHTS – 49ers vs Vikings

During a very memorable offseason (in the worst way possible), many people, myself included, were a little skeptical of what to expect from the team this season. For one, we all saw flashes last season of what Hyde could do.  We were all used to seeing that #21 in the backfield that anything else didn’t seem right. But the first NFL week has now ended, Gore rocks a blue jersey with a white #23, and Hyde rushed for 168 yards and 2 TDs on MNF. Not bad.

The beginning of the game was a little rocky. A muffed punt, a blocked field goal attempt, and a hobbling Reggie Bush weren’t exactly what we expected, but the team rocking all-black played well enough to run away with a win.

Aside from the running game, the man behind center probably had the most attention. Many believe this season is a make-it-or-break-it season for Kaepernick and he didn’t have a bad start. One play that stuck out to me came late in the 2nd period. Rolling to his right, Kap shook off what was almost a sack, stepped up, gave a Jeff Garcia-esque pump fake and hit Garrett Celek for a 20-yard gain. Not anything too spectacular, but definitely improvement from Colin. As the weeks go by, I expect him to show off more of what he worked on in the offseason.

And last, but not least, it felt good to see Navarro Bowman out there. Of course, it would’ve been a lot better to see Patrick Willis lined up next to him, but having one superstar linebacker is good enough. In his first action since the 2014 NFC Championship game, Bowman racked up 7 tackles and a sack. Wherever Vikings RB Adrian Peterson was, Navarro Bowman was, as it should be.

It’s only 1 game. There were still many mistakes, but it’s a win. I expect the Niners to be underdogs all season, but maybe it’s better that way.
