Running to daylight still important in NFL
His backup, Kendall Hunter, has supplied the perfect change of pace with his shiftiness and speed to the outside. He, too, is gaining 5.4 yards a carry.
Plus, quarterbacks Alex Smith and Colin Kaepernick can run, with Kaepernick showing what the wildcat can do when used properly.

“I think they’ve added, trick is not the right word, some scheming problems to complement what they did last year,” New York defensive end Justin Tuck said. “They’ve got some things in there that look exactly one way and it’s the complete opposite from what their play is supposed to look like. So I think their coaching staff has done a great a job of putting them in a scheme that can confuse defenses at times, but the biggest thing is just playing more physical.”
Nowhere can an offense be more physical than in the run game.
