Why is Igo butthurt over CMC?

Recommended Posts

I take a break from the Huddle for a couple weeks, then come back to see CMC getting blasted. One thread cherry-picks a failed CMC juke (still a four yard gain mind you), and then another thread is a passive-aggressive ex-girlfriend-esque post showing a nice play by Samuel, titled "Most impressive play by an offensive rookie this year."

 

Dude, you were posting all this CMC hype in the offseason, were super high on him, and now he is just "Rex Burkhead"? This guy is literally halfway through his rookie season. I figured the man running Carolina Huddle, est. 2003, would know better than to poo on a player this early in his career. So fickle.

I agree. I think all this hate is a bit much. Its his rookie effing season. Rookie season. Yeah, he needs to pack on some weight, that much is apparent. Put this kid with a competent staff and I think this would be a different conversation. The game hasnt slowed down for him yet, but it will. Jesus.

The Huddle is a form of "the media," and like so much of the media now, its financial success is, to a large degree, determined by click(bait). There's at least a part of the answer to your original question, probably a big part.

I haven't seen this many threads about one person since farach was dedicating thread after thread to me

You two ever decide to meet "face-to-face" to dook it out? :tongue:

You answered your own question. Igo was driving the CMC hype train in the preseason. So far, that hasn't translated to the regular season. 

Hence, butthurt. And honestly I wouldn't call it butthurt, he seems to be accepting this reality relatively well.

Well said OP...

CMC is our leading receiver.  He is constantly open, and not always targeted when he should be.  He plays under one of the worst OC to ever have a job in the NFL, and runs behind one of the most under-performing offensive lines in the league.  It's not like Stewart or Fozzy or CAP are lighting it up running the ball while CMC struggles.  EVERY SINGLE RB ON THIS TEAM IS STRUGGLING TO FIND SPACE...EVERY ONE.  

Let's lay off the kid and give him a break.  He is busting his tail out there and always displays a positive attitude.  We have way more issues on offense than our first round draft pick, who happens to be leading the team in receptions and yards.
