Bingo... which makes me think that the Panthers are the one that shut the banner down.... so Shula had a "Prove It" game

 

Maybe but losing KB did work. It also worked because ATL can't just commit a LB to McCaffrey. So it's a difficult game when you have Samuel, Cam, and McCaffrey on the field. That all changes when you trot out Stewart. We become one dimensional and teams know it's a run on first down. Stewart is effective just not on first down.

CMC has some major obstacles to pass for OROTY. Even with Hunt coming back down to Earth, he still leads all RBs in yards and broken tackles. Then you have Leonard Fournette who has been an absolute beast, and then you start to add Kamara in the mix as well. CMC will have to explode big time in the 2nd half of the season to have a chance.

Regardless though, CMC is legit and looks to be hitting his stride. Wish he would just start already. God knows this offense flows better with him in the game.

Fournette has already missed 2 games. One due to injury, and one do to being benched.  I don't think he wins ROTY

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.

It seems cmc runs better when cam takes the snap from center. It gives him a chance to pick up speed and see the holes.

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.
