Michael Gallup Jersey Stitched
Posted On 06/04/2019 01:45:07 by linchao
If you're still thinking Christian McCaffrey is just a receiving back Leighton Vander Esch Jersey Stitched , it may be time to reconsider.The Panthers' second-year running back is coming off a perception-changing game on Sunday, rushing for a career-high 184 yards on 28 carries while playing all 67 offensive snaps in a 31-21 win over the Cincinnati Bengals. It was an eye-opening outing for a player who'd never run for more than 66 yards in a game.McCaffrey is third in the league in rushing, 3 yards behind Dallas' Ezekiel Elliott and San Francisco's Matt Breida entering the team's bye weekend and is averaging 5.9 yards per carry.While many consider McCaffrey's greatest strength to be his receiving ability 鈥?which is not entirely inaccurate given he set a franchise rookie record with 80 receptions last season and he caught 14 passes for 102 yards in a Week 2 loss to the Falcons 鈥?he is proving he can carry the load on the ground, too.The 5-foot-10, 205-pound McCaffrey is motivated to dispel the notion that he can't be an every-down back that can run between the tackles, where he continually gouged the Bengals."It definitely bothers me," McCaffrey said of the perception. "But the more and more I've gone through this league, I learned that it's never been about proving anyone wrong or proving anybody right. Just proving myself right."Panthers coach Ron Rivera has often defended the team's first-round pick in 2017, saying nobody ran between the tackles more in college than McCaffrey."His ability to run the ball inside, he doesn't get enough credit for it," Rivera said.Of course, doing it at Stanford is a lot different than doing it in the NFL where defenders are bigger Youth Connor Williams Jersey , faster and stronger. Now it will be up to McCaffrey to prove he can produce consistently as an every-down running back for an entire season, not just one game.Teammates are confident he can."He's obviously not just a receiving back, he's a total running back," Panthers quarterback Cam Newton said. "He shows signs that this is not a fluke, he's been doing this his whole career 鈥?collegiately as well as professionally."Rivera shocked some earlier this offseason when he said it would be "ideal" if the Panthers got McCaffrey 25-30 touches per game, similar to how offensive coordinator Norv Turner used LaDainian Tomlinson in San Diego. He had a career-high 30 on Sunday.McCaffrey's 14 catches the week before might have caught the Bengals off guard. They seemed determined to take him away in the passing game, but couldn't stop him on the ground.The fact that McCaffrey commands so much attention as a receiver and a runner is the reason the Panthers never took him out of the game.When he wasn't being used as a ball carrier, he proved to be an effective decoy on all four of Carolina's touchdowns.On one second-quarter play, Newton dropped back and faked a pass to McCaffrey , drawing defenders in that direction, then threw a screen pass back to the other side of the field which C.J. Anderson caught and took 24 yards for a touchdown.On Carolina's other three scores, McCaffrey served as a decoy with fake handoffs going his way to distract the defense Connor Williams Jersey Stitched , including on both of Newton's TD runs .Panthers center Ryan Kalil said McCaffrey's quickness makes him dangerous 鈥?and an ideal player to block for."He has great vision and great patience and he knows how to hit those holes," Kalil said. "He has a lot of pride during the week and it obviously paid off."Said McCaffrey: "I don't think a whole lot as soon as the ball is in my hands. I kind of just try and feel everything out. Once you know where everybody's going, it can kind of slow down for you."The one area where McCaffrey has struggled is near the goal line.He's yet to score a touchdown and has had difficulty moving the pile in short-yardage situations. The Panthers are turning more and more to the 6-foot-5, 250-pound Newton to get the ball into the end zone.But everywhere else, McCaffrey is proving to be hard to stop.McCaffrey is quick to deflect praise to his makeshift offensive line, which has been forced to play without three starters, including second-team All-Pro right tackle Daryl Williams."I think it obviously starts up front," McCaffrey said. "Those guys did an absolute unbelievable job all day getting after their guys and they continue to do it all game long. When we can get in a rhythm running the ball it opens everything up." The last time Jason Garrett and his staff coached in a meaningless game, it turned out to be one of the more entertaining games of the whole year. And now, Garrett may deliver on that again with the Pro Bowl, happening Sunday at 3 PM ET. Since Scott Linehan is no longer with the Cowboys as they prepare to coach in the Pro Bowl, and seeing as how Dallas hasn’t officially hired a new offensive coordinator yet Youth Michael Gallup Jersey , many are looking to the Pro Bowl practices to get a glimpse of what Garrett does. One of the interesting bits is that Jon Kitna, who is heavily rumored to be the new quarterbacks coach, has made the trip to Orlando to work with the team, although he hasn’t officially been added to the staff. That said, during practices with the NFC Pro Bowl team, Kitna has been primarily working with the quarterbacks. Doug Nussmeier has been working with the tight ends, as he has all year, and it was Kellen Moore who was in charge of installing the offensive scheme and calling plays. Moore was unwilling to comment on whether or not that means he’ll be the team’s offensive coordinator going forward, and Stephen Jones was vague as well. Jerry Jones at least said that they like the coaches that are already on the staff, but didn’t say much more. The general vibe that has come out of this, though, is that Moore will be the most prominent offensive coach in charge of coming up with schemes and which formations the team uses and ways that each player gets utilized in those formations Michael Gallup Jersey Stitched , but Nussmeier is expected to be a voice in those conversations as well, with Kitna also lending his experience while focusing mostly on quarterbacks and allowing Moore to center more of his efforts on the scheme. As Travis Frederick noted this week, Moore already had a minor role in game planning this year, but that was in addition to his duties as a position coach. Of course, there’s still the question of how involved Garrett himself will be after reports that the head coach was in line to call plays again. Jerry Jones dodged those questions by saying his head coach can do “more or less” with regards to offensive game planning, which tells us nothing. But based on these Pro Bowl practices, the most likely scenario is that the offensive scheme that Garrett’s staff is using will be compiled by Moore, Nussmeier, and Kitna, with Garrett keeping a watchful eye, and then Moore will call the plays in the all star game on Sunday. It’s being reported that Garrett might not call the plays come the regular season.The low (non-existent?) stakes of the Pro Bowl effectively allows Moore and company to have a trial run at this; after all, the three quarterbacks Moore will be calling plays for - Russell Wilson Youth Dorance Armstrong Jersey , Mitchell Trubisky, and Dak Prescott - all possess similar skill sets, so it’s good practice for finding ways to utilize their strengths, most notably their mobility. If Garrett likes what he sees, then perhaps Moore will get the offensive coordinator job will full play-calling duties. It also gives fans a chance to see what kinds of plays Moore can draw up. And speaking of the kinds of ideas Moore may incorporate, he offered a very brief soundbyte at one of the Pro Bowl practices that may or may not mean something: It’s possible that Moore was just being cheeky and inferring that Dak an Zeke will easily pick things up because it’s what they’ve been running their whole pro careers. Or it could mean that Moore has added some new things to this playbook and essentially grafted new skin onto the bones of the Linehan offense. Perhaps I’m reading too much into that, but we’ll find out Sunday. At least one thing is for sure, though: if you’re a Cowboys fan, the Pro Bowl is must-watch TV this year.
