Santa Clara-The 49ers’ opening touchdown on Sunday defined the true meaning of their offense this season: to seize the advantage.
Those two quarterbacks rotate? Just a juggling, not just an ultimate facilitator.
Therefore, it was on Sunday that Raheem Mostert drove 53 yards with speed and open lanes in the opening series. Jimmy Garoppolo (Jimmy Garoppolo) and Trey Lance (Trey Lance) went in and out, dangerously rushed across the goal line to end the offense.
All in all, the 49ers rushed for 242 yards in the Raiders preseason finale.
“Running here is very important for us, so I like the people we have,” coach Kyle Shanahan said.
Most had two NFL fastest records last season. His speed is still dazzling. But he may split the carry, not just with other running backs. The 49ers added Reims and their versatile wide receiver to the sprint combination this season.
Shanahan described his rushers as “a group of people with different skills”, which surpassed the four fast running backs on their roster-Most, Jamie Carl Hastie and rookie Trey Selmon and Ilya Mitchell. (Prediction: Mostert gets 60% of the snapshots, Sermon 30%, and the rest to Hasty or Mitchell.)
Other options are receivers Deebo Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk and possibly Jalen Hurd, not to mention defender Kyle Juszczyk and the newest asset Lance, whose rushing ability is mostly hidden in the preseason before a touchdown on Sunday.
In addition, don’t forget that the 49ers’ offensive line may be their best in ten years. Center Alex Mack joined the battle, and left tackle Trent Williams returned with the most lucrative trade offensive linebacker. Rookie guard Aaron Banks waited on the sidelines. wing. Nervous George Kittle is also known for throwing a block or two happily.
Back to Most. He is in the final year of his contract (annual salary of $3 million). Knee and ankle injuries last season prevented him from participating in only eight games, which is the only eight starts in his six-year career.
“Raheem cannot control whether he is injured, but he can control what he does, and he is fully prepared for these situations.” When asked if Most was an elite striker, Sha Nahan said. “If he stays healthy, then everyone will know this. If not, I hope he can be praised for what he does on the court, because he means a lot to us.”
Most’s opening advantage in Sunday’s preseason final is reminiscent of his masterpiece of 220 yards and four touchdowns against the Green Bay Packers in the 2019 NFC Championship game.
“It feels great outside. I’m very happy,” Most said of Sunday’s actions. “I’m very excited and got some explosive runs. I just need to make sure I can bring it to the opener against Detroit.”
On September 12, the 49ers opened the regular season in Detroit. At that time, if Lance’s injured finger healed, then the running game may take on a new dimension, his area reading the goalkeeper or handing over to Most and other defenders.
“We just need to make sure we don’t hold the ball too tight, or just automatically assume that Trey will pull the ball or something like that,” Most said. “It takes practice, and once you start practicing, it will be great.”
