Darius Slay in awe of CMC

Recommended Posts

He leads the Carolina Panthers in rushing yards, receptions and touchdowns, and the Detroit Lions know that stopping him Sunday will be key to snapping their three-game losing streak.

Lions cornerback Darius Slay marveled at McCaffrey's abilities Thursday, and at how different he is from other NFL running backs.

"I just never saw a white guy do it like that," Slay said. "He goes ham out there and like he plays on an elite level at the running back. (Most) white running backs (are known for) running folks over, he be out there shaking them and doing all what he needs to do, and catch it in the air. So he’s special. He’s special."

Not sure what CMCs race has to do with anything, but he has a lot of great things to say about CMC.

"It's just like, that’s just new in our days," Slay said. "Like have you ever seen one like that? ... Me either. I mean, like, shoot. I didn’t either. He’s first. The first of a kind. That’s fire. He’s on it. Like he be shaking folks."”

 

We gotta sign this Slay guy.

White people are not supposed to be that quick and shifty. What he's saying is his privilege points aren't adding up.

It's an athlete thing. Even white football players say "look at that white boy!" at guys like CMC. It's unusual. Strong, sure. Intelligent, sure. But never fast and agile, not at that level. Nothing back handed meant, he's just saying what we all know. CMC is not your average white running back.

I say the same thing about cmc. Nothing backhanded about it.He is a rare white runningback. Not sure why saying he's white is racist or backhanded. Im sure why your talking about a black person somewhere your like that black guy.... That isn't racist or an insult.

So basically if he was black he wouldn't have even mentioned it.  Sound pretty freaking racist to me.  TBH I don't see many black RB with this talent.   Kareem Hunt maybe.

This forum is so fickle.  When someone says the same thing about the "Black QB" the whole damn forum erupts into a racist rant. 

Can't have it both ways.... If the "Black QB" comments are racist than the "White RB" comments are racist.

He could have given props to CMC without bringing race in it.  CMC is a unique talent. PERIOD.

I see what you’re saying and there is some truth there. 

Peoples sensitivities aside, he was being honest and it really was a compliment. Any time a person is “shaking them and doing what he needs to do” , I take In a positive way. :)

It’s Friday.

Oh, I have no doubt it was a compliment.   Anyone that doesn't see him as a danger to a defense will soon learn. 

Reminds me of Fred Smoots (Minnesota Vikings 2005) when he downplayed how good Smitty was and said he was going to shut him down.  201 yds 1 TD and 11 for 11 on targets.  He learned...  Smoots was never the same after that game.

Hate that there are race driven stereotypes in sports but glad Christian is getting some props for his athleticism.
