Is the best yet to come for new Chiefs RB Carlos Hyde?

By:Charles Goldman | 5 hours ago

Winning is the most important thing in the NFL.

In Carlos Hyde’s five seasons as professional, he’s never been part of a winning team. He joined a promising San Francisco 49ers team through the draft just as they took a nose dive. His brief stay with the Cleveland Browns in 2018 was filled with dysfunction, and he was traded to a spiraling Jacksonville Jaguars team to end the 2018 season.

Hyde’s two best seasons as a professional came with the 49ers in 2016 and 2017. One team saw struggles under Chip Kelly, and the other a resurgence under Kyle Shanahan. During those seasons Hyde tallied 2,439 scrimmage yards with 17 total touchdowns. Hyde’s proved he can be at his best even when his teams are at their worst, which is one of the most difficult things to do in the NFL.

The Chiefs just finished their sixth straight season with a winning record. It’s not a foregone conclusion that the Chiefs will continue their successful streak in 2019, but with Patrick Mahomes at quarterback, they’ll be favored to do so. So what’s going to happen when Hyde is finally on a winning team?

There are a few areas where the Chiefs have found success in 2018 that should really influence Hyde’s game. Improvements should be expected in his new situation with the Chiefs.

No longer a workhorse

Finding balance is important in the NFL. Very few guys can come in and be the prototype workhorse running back. Many teams take a committee approach to how they utilize their backs. Sharing carries with another back isn’t an ideal situation for the stat sheet, but it can help promote longevity.

Hyde has suffered quite a few injury setbacks. He’s dealt with back injuries, foot injuries, a concussion and even an MCL tear in the NFL. The most significant of those injuries occurred when Hyde was the lead running back.

Now that Hyde has joined the Chiefs, he won’t have to carry the load alone. They’ve now got three guys on the roster who are quite capable, and they could potentially seek to add more in free agency or the NFL draft. Hyde can now focus on consistency and making the most out of a limited workload.

Pass-catching

Don’t let anyone tell you that Hyde is bad at catching the football. It’s simply a misinformed opinion. Hyde has a 70.8 percent career catch rate during his five seasons playing in the NFL. If he retired tomorrow he’d have a better career catch rate than Pro Football Hall of Famer Terrell Davis.

Then consider what he’s had to deal with throughout his career in terms of quarterback play. Here’s a list of Hyde’s quarterbacks during his NFL career:

  • Colin Kaepernick, 49ers
  • Blaine Gabbert, 49ers
  • C.J. Beathard, 49ers
  • Brian Hoyer, 49ers
  • Jimmy Garoppolo, 49ers
  • Tyrod Taylor, Browns
  • Baker Mayfield, Browns
  • Blake Bortles, Jaguars
  • Cody Kessler, Jaguars

Hyde has had virtually no stability at the QB position during his career, and that matters. In 2018 alone he dealt with four different starters at the QB position. It’s no surprise that his best seasons catching the ball came with the familiarity of Kaepernick and Gabbert with the 49ers. Having stability at the quarterback position with the Chiefs should certainly work to improve Hyde’s ability catching the football.

Success from shotgun

It just so happens that during the most successful season of Hyde’s career, the 49ers ran the ball predominantly out of the shotgun formation. During the 2016 season, 213 of Hyde’s rushing attempts came out of the shotgun. During the 2017 season, only 52 of Hyde’s rushing attempts came out of the shotgun. His attempts from under center averaged 1.9 fewer yards per carry than those that came from shotgun. If you look at his entire career his splits from shotgun are markedly better than those from under center.

The Chiefs offense operated out of the shotgun on the bulk of their snaps in 2018. It’s what Mahomes is most comfortable with. Returning to an offense that heavily uses the shotgun should play to the strengths of Hyde’s game. It’ll put him in the best possible position to be successful.

There’s plenty more that suggests Hyde could see newfound success now that he’s joined the Chiefs. These are a few of the most prominent to hold you over until we get to see what Hyde is capable of on the field.

If anyone is interested I am Top40 online. In the real world my name is David Russell Ellenberger. I am a SWM 57 and live in Louisville, Ky. I started Internettop40.com about 4 years ago. I wasn't exactly sure what I wanted the website to be about but I liked the idea of people voting on items in ranked lists. The voting on these ranked lists will move the items up or down in the rankings you vote by clicking the + or - buttons below or next to the item in a list, refresh the page and the item will then appear in it's new ranking. IMHO voting really is one of the most important things you can do. Your vote is literally worth millions of dollars and that's one thing the politicians want you to do but don't want you to think about in that way. In other words vote for me I'm the best and I'm for this I'm for that I am for all the things that you want and that's why should vote for me. In reality what its about is control over you and money. So next time you vote you should demand to get paid. But I digress that's voting on items is just one of the reasons I started Internttop40.com. I also wanted to get my point out to the people and hopefully other people will want to use my website to get their point out or at least create their own lists. I had hoped for this to be another social media website. That hasn't really happened and I have been online for almost 5 years now. More about that later.

 

Everyone thinks just put your website up and they will come but that's not really the case. Part of the problem is search engines like Google have almost complete control of the web and all the traffic on it and they want you to pay. They also don't like other social media sites or search engine type sites they are what's known in the business as viral sites or sites that mostly contain links and not much original content which is exactly what Google is. But I maintain that links are part of the branding and the way you show your links to the world is an original aspect of any website and part of the branding and is orginal content in and of itself. But Google doesn't think so, Because that's what they are and they of course want complete control and they have it and no one seems to care. I didn't care until I started this website. But again I digress.

 

Back to the point. Why I started this website. Well another reason was to make money you can sell things or you can put advertising on your website. You can go out and sell advertising yourself or simply sign up for advertising services that have already sold the advertising and put the ads on your website for you. Services like this from Google and it's advertising service called adsense. If you read up on the internet how to make money with a website You will eventually find Adsense and various websites will tell you you can make tens of thousands with website adverting its so easy. And that may be true just from a numbers point of view but then reality sets in. More coming in a few days. Thanks for reading....
