Some insight into McCaffrey...

A word about Khary Darlington, the scout referenced in the first article...

He was considered a rising star in the scouting department but he disappeared from the Panthers (and pretty much the world) mid 2017.

The timing makes it seem a strong likelihood that Darlington was the employee whom Jerry Richardson used a racial slur against, and that he subsequently took a settlement with a non-disclosure agreement. That would explain his falling off the face of the earth right when it looked like he was headed for great things.

Thanks again, Jerry 🙄

People have too strong an emotional attachment to players.

We don't want them treated like commodities when we feel they are special, but when they don't live up to expectations, especially because they friggin keep getting hurt, we need to cut bait rather than extend them. 

But you mention that and people go beserk, but what happens when you don't treat them like commodities is this kind of poo.

Choose what's best for the team long term rather than what's best for these special players we like so much.

Give me the Pats approach any day.

I have long stopped hating the Pats not that I root for them or anything but I'm not the type to ignore clear greatness/intelligence or dislike competence.

Found mine from that thread.   Everyone should have to go find their own and out themselves. 

I love CMC.  But I have never endorsed paying RBs big money.  Having the highest paid RB in the NFL never actually ends up being a good thing

Oh ffs give it a rest.

Fournette was NEVER AN OPTION.  Not that we didn't consider him.  We did, all evidence indicates we did.  But he was gone by the time we picked!  If you really want to wallow in self pity, consider that we passed on Patrick Mahomes and Deshaun Watson to draft CMC.  Those guys were actually available at our pick.

Quit falling into recency bias. I love how all of a sudden, mccaffery is some injured bum who wouldn't even be tradeable and we're crying over fournette who never lived upto his draft status and had a couple games with 3 tds from the goal line. Fournette has 970 all purpose yds and 8 tds,  mccaffery has missed 5 games and has 780 yds and 2 tds. 200 less yds, Rush mccaffery from the goal line as well and he'll give you double digit touchdowns easily. The fact that he has 2 tds does not mean he is unable to score from the goal line. Gimme mccaffery over fournette anyday, this thread is stupid as is Pearson. Victims of recency bias

CMC needs to take a pay cut. PERIOD.

If he doesnt, make other plans to trade/release him.

You can focus the entire Offense around one player that can not stay on the field. Period.

Especially if that player is the highest paid, EVEN AFTER 10 other elite RB signed deals.

Beyond pissed about CMC and that contract that never should have been offered.

Heading into 2022 he would have been a FA, LIKE HE SHOULD BE!

No other team in history have paid RBs like the panthers, madding...

I wish I could find my posts following Cam's MVP season and CMC's break out season.  I said both times the best thing we could have done is trade them for draft capital.  I wasn't wrong.

If you find them, mine 20 or so posts about not paying him should be around them. Took heavy heat for that, just like many of my opinions......just like my other hot takes, I was right.

Another one. One post in particular takes the cake. It was deleted but remains in quotes.
