That isn't a given. 

He ran pretty well between the tackles yesterday.  His best run of the day was right up the gut into an 8 man box.  He went for 12-15 yards if I remember correctly.

To be fair, it only took him nine games to figure it out.

I know it has been said ad nauseam, but could you imagine what McCaffery's numbers would be if he played with a QB who could consistently hit him in stride, a QB who was willing to take what the defense gives him, rather than preferring to play Hero Ball ??

McCaffery has been open, quite literally, virtually every time he has run a route. 

Meanwhile, we continue to force the ball down field and rank near the bottom of the league in passing efficiency.

The offense we displayed against Atlanta is unsustainable in the long term.

The "evolution" of the offense has failed...not because of  Shula or Rivera, but because certain key players are either unwilling or unable to execute.

Does any of the blame fall to the RBs coach?  Could he be coaching CMC to run to the inside?  Or maybe coaching him to run like Stew?

Sure he does. He is the best pass catching running back in the NFL...and he is a rookie.

All that being said, just look at tape and see how many times McCaffery has to adjust to a poorly thrown ball in order to make a catch. This is a VERY big deal in terms of ultimate YAC. Remember the crazy one handed grab he made a couple of weeks ago for a short gain? If he doesn't have to leap, if the ball is simply placed where it should have been, the play goes, for much, much more.

And how many times have you seen McCaffery open underneath for first down yardage...and yet Cam will mysteriously  chunk the football downfield into tight coverage. 

Newton is 27th in NFL passer rating, despite having an unbelievable underneath weapon in Christian McCaffery.

We can’t just throw to Mac every single fuging pass play. We need to take shots downfield to keep the defense honest, then you will see things REALLY open up for Mac.

youre acting like Cam is throwing bad balls to him on every play, which is retarded.

Does anyone really think CMC deserves to be the OROTY? He's a top 10 RB who is on pace to run for ~500 yards. Sure his gross receiving numbers aren't bad, but I don't think overuse (relative to his peers) should be considered a massive plus, to be honest.

No one should assume that there's no need for an adjustment period just because McCaffrey was taken with a high pick.

All rookies have to adjust to the speed and complexity of the NFL.  Even good ones.

To be perfectly honest, it won't really matter to me whether McCaffrey wins awards this year.  What I'm most interested in is seeing whether he takes big steps next year.

Seriously, folks would benefit a lot from reading Ryan Kalil's advice to rookies.

MaCaffery has received virtually the same number of targets as Funchess.

Any idea why Carolina is 4th in Total first downs this year...and 5th in 3rd down conversions despite ranking 21st in total offense?

Incidentally, exactly what is Carolina's downfield passing game opening up? 

The run? LOL.

That’s my whole point. We haven’t had anybody step up to be that downfield threat. We can’t just keep forcing it to Mac.

Why? 

No one has stopped him yet. Seriously, he is open on virtually every play. Throw it to him until someone stops him. 

The 49'ers used to do it with Roger Craig. Use the short pass to open both the run and the downfield stuff. 

The reality is that no one respects our ability to go downfield at all. All the Atlanta game did was cement this.

If he continues to grow in this offense.  I think he would really need a couple of spectacular plays to give him some media coverage.  I would like to see him break a 70-75 yd run off.  That will impress the crowd.

OROY would be an impressive award if he surpassed Hunt and Fournette.

It's coming, when CMC does it will bring down the house!
