Might sound crazy, but when CMC comes back he needs to be used like any other player...not a centerpiece or focal point. 

Then we never should’ve paid him that monster contract.

 

which is what some of us were saying.

We as a team are playing better because the defense has given up aveage 17.6 points respectively the last 3 games.   First 2 games we averaged 32.5 points per game.

So we should use probably one of the most dynamic players in the league as a regular player?  smh...

I’ve always felt CMC’s role in the passing game should be slightly minimized.

i don't know if you'd consider this minimized to what he's been, but I've always seen CMC to be this generations' Marshall Faulk, as a true 50/50 killer.

Mike Davis role these pass few weeks hasn't been any different than how we would have used Mccaffrey. 

Davis caught nine passes against the Falcons, that's the same way we use Mccaffrey. This offense in particular if you watched LSU last season has a big emphasis on using the Rb in the passing game. 

Mccaffrey's a big weapon in the passing game you don't want to minimize that. But he does need less reps, wear and tear, we have Mike Davis who can spell him and this offense will continue clicking.

That can be said about any team with a star player. 

Pretty much.

You know they're going to get the ball, but you still have to stop them. Heck, in 2019, even with Ron Rivera and his staff running the show he still did the 1000/1000 thing.

Yep and those were the first two games of those entire staff. Offense averaged 23.5 ppg with CMC and 25 ppg without him. Seeing as how the entire team played better the last three games (no sacks last two, +5 turnovers instead of -2), all this talk of CMC being a weight pulling us down is ridiculous. Maybe you don’t like the contract but man, acting like CMC is bad for us is ignoring the overwhelming evidence that this is in fact a team sport and amazingly the entire team has picked it up. Shocking with such a new staff that we would improve our play calling and gel a bit after no preseason games.

Minimized is laughable. Let’s minimize CMC in the passing game. Davis has 22 receptions in 3 starts when we’ve been winning most of the games. He had 8 in that last quarter while losing to TB. He’s on pace in 3.25 games to have around 140 receptions.

Yeah, CMC should be minimized when he starts and gets back healthy because we have sure stopped throwing to our lead RB even with the lead instead of coming from behind. SMH.

He is certainly partially right.  But the main reason we are less predictable is no Ron Rivera and company.

Was going to say something similar.

CMC is the undisputed best player at his position on this football team.

that said, mike davis has given this team reason to split carries. if mike davis is in the backfield and christian mccaffrey is flexing out as a receiver it's not longer automatically a passing read.

thank based christ we don't have shula as an offensive coordinator because joe brady is a guy who's smart enough to capitalize on this.

For a change I agree with this entire post, The threat of it still being a run with CMC lining up in the slot and not solely a decoy just further opens up the offense as long as you don't force feed him, It opens up chances to get him free and in space for big plays off play action too.

Shula distributed the ball between McCaffrey and Stewart fairly well with a 198 to 116 rushing split .  It was Norv who showed no desire to mix it up. In 2018 CJ Anderson had 26 carries and was let go. In 2019 Kyle Allen had the second most rushing attempts. 

The Turner experience was the only thing that could be wore than a Shula experience.

Either the defense focuses their attention on him and it opens things up for everyone else or they spread their attention to others opening things up more for him. 

If we focus on feeding him, defenses focus on him more and it makes us less effective and more predictable. 

Plus we miss out on other bits of talent we can exploit. Treat him like we should have treated Cam's running game. Use just enough that defenses have to worry and keep an eye on it. It will open things up in other areas of the game.

i'd really rather see CMC spend more time in the slot, occasionally motioning to run on certain situations, or acting as a blocker/checkdown
