If there is a calling card to be seen since the Kyle Shanahan and John Lynch regime began in 2017, it’s they have a knack for finding players no other teams wanted. Every coach and general manager prides themselves on being able to find hidden talent where many others missed it.
With three running backs, who came to the team as undrafted rookies sharing the ball last week, the 49ers have become post-draft savants.
Wilson scored the first and second touchdowns of his career, both in goal-line situations.
Mostert scored another on a 39-yard screen pass, which can only be described as him hitting a NOS switch located somewhere on his person, as he blew past three Bengals defenders.
Breida finished the game with 12 carries for 121 yards, including a 3rd-and-1 at midfield, which was reminiscent of Neo from The Matrix avoiding tackles from Agent Smith.
The Shanahan running game has always been successful at finding diamonds in the rough. For all three backs to have the impact they did, the coach and GM tandem are on the right track.
