We can gameplan now without him. I think that was our problem in the first half last night, no plan for no CMC. Brady made adjustments and put something together for the second half that wasn't as reliant on McCaffrey being in.
For a League that preaches about player safety it would be one of the easiest things they could do to protect players. The numbers are pretty staggering. A player is basically 33% more likely to get injured on turf compared to grass. That fuging insane.
And yet our owner who is all about modern analytics and sports science just ripped up our beautiful grass field for that poo. Shows where his interests really are… $$$$$.
I’m honestly more concerned about Horn’s injury than CMC. I think Chuba had his first game on the road without playing significant minutes before. Him getting better as the game went showed he was capable. Chuba and Royce aren’t the worst combo to fall back on, plus other players got worked in like Marshall, and Tremble. We have a lot of weapons on offense plus Shi Smith should be coming back soon. CMC’s injury stings but we should be able to adjust and he should be back this year.
Horn’s injury makes DJax slide to the 1CB and who knows (I hope Bouye) plays 2CB. I’m not sold on DJax at the 1 due to his size, he is great at the 2. That’s a drop off in two spots on the secondary and it takes away valuable game reps for a rookie, plus he could be out for a while. Let’s hope ole Snow has a few tricks up his sleeve (and I bet he does).
