What's Christian McCaffrey up to?

He's a helluva talent but I'm not so sure he hasn't just kinda checked out on football for the Instagram life since getting that big ass contract. If he doesn't want to risk injury playing for a shitty team, honestly I get it but just man up and demand a trade already if that's the case.

He seem to work all out year round, trying to play through injuries etc. Not sure how you think he’s checked out?

He's missed TONS of time with minor injuries. The type of injuries players routinely play through. Listen, I get it. We suck and there's really no point in him playing through nagging injuries risking further injury when he already has his contract. I don't blame him.

But does he really want to play football? If he does and really wants to compete then demand a trade and try to force your way to a contender. If he doesn't, then just keep doing what you're doing. Milk that first minor injury all the way to the IR list and cash those checks and Instagram it up.

Which of his injuries do you consider “minor?”

We can just agree to disagree on this one, but that’s ok as well. Hopefully he shocks the world and stay healthy this year to make it easier for Corral.

I am going to bucket this into the “poor takes by LG”

 

you have good takes some days, and others you have poo like this. You literally have no idea what you are talking about. These guys are getting hit by trucks week in and week out, and you are stating he doesn’t want to compete? You think they just go out there and run their bodies into the ground bc they have nothing else to do?

 

zero human empathy in your posting today.

Yes I do. A lot of NFL guys would have never made it through school without football. There is nothing else they can do and rake in the kind of money they make for the vast majority. Not everyone is getting a cushy 300m announcer job when they retire.

Man stfu. Do you ever say anything optimistic. You need some good pussy in your life to clear your head off this pessimism.

Id love to see what supporting evidence you have make this claim accurate. It seems that you are operating off of the assumption that these players would not replace all of those football hours, which would be in the 10s of thousands, with any other proffession training, education, or in field experience.

These are no different that any of us, and we (most of us) have careers in a wide variety of fields, so why wouldn't they? They had different paths to their jobs, but it doesnt mean that they couldnt have ended up in a completely diffferent professional space if they made one decision differently. Look at Laurent Duvernay-Tardif... he is a doctor first, and pro football player second...  that alone destroys your narrative of "nothing else they can do"

Also, if you think NFL players make "that kind of money," then you should read up on how the salaries really work out for these players. Kids come into the league broke, and leave the league broke more often than not. Over 60% of NFL players dont even get a 2nd contract, and over 15% of the entire league makes less than 200k over their entire NFL career (thanks to the new practice squad system). 

The average working american makes more money than the average NFL player does over their career. There is data to support that. Here is some math to help out:

The average NFL players career lasts 3.3 years with an average salary of 860k, and since their tax bracket is of the highest, they are taxed 37% of their total income. These contracts do NOT include any long term benefits, retirement benefits, or disability and life insurance. Those all cost separate. 

So with that, lets just leave out cost benefits, and go with salary post tax... That means the average NFL player takes home 541k per year. So after their average duration of their career an NFL player will make 1.8milion dollars. 

Now, lets take the average working american, with NO college degree. They average 41k in the USA for their salary. The average working American works 44 total years, and accrues benefits, and typically recieves a 20% pay raise every 4.1 years. However, for this example I am going to stay flat on career earnings for a working American. The tax bracket for these individuals is the lowest and are only taxed 10%. 

So with that, an average american would make 1.6million dollars over their career not including any pay raises, career transitions, benefits, or retirement. If you add a degree (which all nfl players have) then the average working american will make over 2 million dollars during their career.

There is a false belief that NFL players make more money during their careers than successful working americans. Its simply not true. The NFL is a cruel place for these players, and the NFLPA needs to do more. 

So your comment about "there is nothing else they can do to make that kind of money".. its wrong. Having a stable career in one of the hundreds of fields that net you decent to above average money, will have you much better off than the average NFL player over the long term. 

Bonus note: My company is paying kids out of college at a starting salary of 80k with bonuses. If thats their starting point, then their end point will be over the 10s of millions during their careers.

All injury rabble aside good on him for supporting the Canes. I don't watch much hockey but I'll take what I can get so I hope they make a run.

Same here - not much of a hockey fan, but I have enjoyed watching the Canes playoff run this year. Not much scoring, but their defense is a thing of beauty.

I really wonder what will happen to him when he enivtiably  gets injured multiple times for the 3rd season in a row.  Would the panthers cut  him? Is it cap feasible  to do that after next year? Bc his trade value would be 0 after that 

I am still holding out hope he was just unlucky the last 2 seasons but if it happens again then I will consider him injury prone. 
That is why you don’t overpay RBs.

    • Still can't make perfect sense on this 3days later until it leads to either Gordon or Terry package trade.. If not this seem like another example of MJ being cheap AF..
    • You got to give them some slack. They thought they had their perfect coach in Atkinson and then they didn't. They obviously didn't want Mark Jackson and Jordan and Mitch oddly want to retain most if not all of the coaches. In their eyes they were jilted and embarrassed in public by this guy and the negative media afterwards. They turned to somebody they could trust, somebody that already wanted the job and wouldn't say no and has always been a coach that was good at making something out of nothing. I'm not mad here. The trust factor is already there. They really really know each other, Mitch has done waaaaay better than Cho. I would have gave Mark Jackson an interview but I understand why Jordan hired someone who would be more loyal. Unfinished business apparently. It is what it is now. Cliff doesn't shoot. I've already moved past it. You should too. If they sign Miles, Mitch has done well this off-season and this squad is automatically better defensively with 7'2" Williams and Kai coming into the lineup after killing the G League. Experience at coach is what we were missing, a young defensive big was what we were missing. Beelieve!  
    • Aaron Rodgers 2.0. I'm calling it now. We don't have Brett Favre and this is 2022. Play him.
