CMC is not a RB...he is a WR

If he's a WR then his YPR is pretty pitiful.

 He is not working at RB.

Seriously arn't there other similar threads with people getting that it isn't who the rb is but instead of how shitty shula is as an oc and how crappy our oline is at run blocking.

Im not given up on him being a rb in the league yet after 7 games. But the thing about this team is we have no choice but to play him at wr because of how crappy the offense is. We need a receiver that can get open quickly to eliminate pressure and no use in running him behind a piece of poo o line and getting bang up early in his career. CMC at receiver helps this team better than at rb right now.

You guys are putting too much stock into this WR thing. What makes him dynamic is getting him lined up on LBs. If he's at receiver, he's gonna have a corner on him most plays, which takes away his advantage. He has to play RB to be a successful receiver. The problem is, when he's in the game, it's pretty much going to be a pass, because no one respects him as a runner.

nobody respects any of our running backs right now, because our line is atrocious.

He is no better than Whitaker, that's what he is.  Its not his fault we drafted him so high, and I know he is trying hard, but he was absolutley a wasted pick.

Not if he plays slot receiver, like Welker did with the Pats. McC could easily dominate as a slot receiver at this level, possibly even better than Welker did in his prime in NE.

But I still do have hope he'll have a major jump like LeVeon Bell in between the tackles and that's not out of the question. McC's vision and patience in college was just like LeVeon Bell's, it takes time for the NFL speed of the game to slow down for him and for him to be able to just play without thinking. Bell was terrible his rookie year and had a major leap his second year, as a runner. Partly due to weight loss, but also due to the game slowing down and him seeing the lanes he sees now, and letting them develop in time. McC can still get there and be an elite weapon like Bell. Also, very hard to develop in this offense as a runner right now when there are 3 defenders on you the instant you get the ball.
