Is the CMC experiment over?

Look up our yardage from the game, cross reference with CMC’s yardage. Account for the fact everyone puts a “spy”(mandatory shadow) on CMC, taking their defensive numbers in strategy down to 10. Look at the tape when he’s blocking for the past 3 or so years. 
 

I’ll give you a hint. Vs. the Jets we had 381 offensive yards, CMC accounted for 187 of them. 

When your running back has half your yardage totals, its usually not a good thing.  Against the Eagles, we had about 280 yards.  Hubbard accounted for 134 of them.  Not criticizing CMC or complimenting Hubbard, but I am not so sure CMC makes much of a difference.  Our offense was not good against the Jets.

To be fair they CMC had 53 more yards on 1 more touch and he has a spy all the time so he opens it up for our WR . So that is a big difference

We have had to learn to adjust. And the fact is, we shouldn't be using CMC as a crutch anyway. After this experience with him playing so little, and getting hurt (possibly from overuse), I'm of the opinion that you shouldn't overpay RBs because the nature of the position lends itself to injuries. 

We probably won't trade him, but we probably should. And I love CMC, but the truth is his situation is not good for a team that's rebuilding and trying to establish an offensive identity (beginning with the need for a franchise QB). He masks a multitude of sins, and we need a QB, not an RB, who is the face of the franchise.

5.5

5.5 and he could have played another 3 last year if we were in the playoff hunt. They held him out the 2 games. I think they thought we would come out of the last 3 weeks with at least 2 wins

How many games has he played in the last two seasons? Now that's a stat I can really sink my teeth into. 

Yeah, well... WHEN and if he's in there that's the only time this team seems to have a legitimate chance to win. That's the "meat" of it, unfortunately.
