CMC vs Davis illustrated

Recommended Posts



Davis has his role, he's just... slow. I'd be 90% sure that bonnafon would have made it to the endzone on that play.

Mike Davis is a very good compliment to a back like CMC. Anyone clamoring to trade him is stupid. My thing is, if the Panthers are say, 1-5 when McCaffrey is healthy enough to come back, is it worth playing him this season? He’s already an elite player and doesn’t need snaps. He needs wear and tear preservation. 

Is it worth playing him in a down year? Especially if he’s dealing with ankle injuries that are notorious to linger?

CMC isn't the type of guy that will want to sit and watch his team play. Aside from team goals, he has personal goals as well. To strip him of that may not be wise.

That is really a ridiculous question. Of course you play him if he is healthy. It is an insult to him and every other player to hold out someone who is healthy because they might get hurt unless we have wrapped up the playoffs and are sitting players waiting for the playoffs.

Absolutely. These guys fought their whole lives to get to do what they do on Sundays. You don't tell them you are sitting them just because.

No you cant sit CMC, makes too much money to not play

Davis is slow to the hole. He had a 25 yard run because the hole was 5 times that size. He was 12-24 the rest of the time. Bonnafon had 2 carries and even I could see he was way more explosive than Davis. We scored 21 points even though the Chargers played about as bad as it gets and even then our offensive efficiency almost let them win the game on the last play.

The Davis over CMC talk is downright embarrassing. The studs make a lot more than JAGs. It will always be that way.

Amazing the amount of people wanting to get rid of CMC and I got grief from a lot of the same saying we should have cut Short. Short’s cap hit this year is equal to CMC’s cap hit this year and next year. CMC is on a 3 year $39M deal if we see any decline in 2022.

SMH, I think I could do better than Hurney but man some of these people would have Short and Davis next year instead of CMC.

Davis is a good #2 RB. I still don't understand paying a #2 RB $3M in today's NFL. Everyone else is spending their money on WRs, DBs, and OTs. We're still spending all of our money on RBs and LBs like it's 1984.

I really see Davis as the Greg Olsen of this generations passing game. Solid hands, slow but keeps his feet moving, good power back that should do more of the up the middle poo when CMC is lined up as WR. Unfortunately though I haven't been all that impressed with his blocking when challenged by a good DL he straight up wiffed a lot of poo vs the Bucs.

You must only be thinking of late career Olsen. Prime Olsen definitely wasn't slow.

What I don't get is why we even picked Davis up in reality. Ya, he's a solid player he proved that to me Sunday(Finally got his chance) but we literally had a stable of young potential RB's for way cheaper last year.

It's the Hurney way.

Too much into RBs and LB maybe, but hard to argue with what we did at WR. 2 of our best are on rookie contracts still and our other top guy was a free agent pickup for 10 M.

This will probably be Davis' only year on the roster before he will be replaced by a mid to late round draft pick. As we build, that cap space will be more critical and more of the bad contracts will start to come off the books.
