Christian McCaffrey could get more catches as C.J. Anderson takes over as lead back

The Panthers are planning to use C.J. Anderson as their feature back, leaving Christian McCaffrey in a similar role he had last season, Jourdan Rodrigue of the Charlotte Observer reports.

Jonathan Stewart and McCaffrey combined for only 1,115 rushing yards Where To Find Cheap Jerseys last season, with quarterback Cam Newton leading the team in rushing. It’s why Stewart was released, and Anderson was signed.

Anderson is coming off his first 1,000-yard rushing season, having rushed for 1,007 last season in Denver. He likely plays the traditional running back role in Norv Turner’s offense, according to Rodrigue.

That means McCaffrey’s carries are expected to stay around the 117 he had last season, though he would like to up his average from the 3.7 he had in rushing for 435 yards. McCaffrey, the eighth overall choice in 2017, could get even more chances in the passing game.

Making fewer routes add up to more. This goes back to getting players playing San Jose Sharks Cheap Jerseys fast, and making the most of the time coaches have with them by shifting the burden from the players to the coaches—with players getting really good at a smaller number of things, then weaponizing those elements creatively by dressing plays up in different ways through formations and motion.

One way Riley sees that approach coming to life with NFL coaches is in how they teach their receivers routes.

It’s more complex, but it’s easier [to execute], as opposed to simpler but more difficult, Trubisky said, via the Chicago Sun-Times. That’s how I would describe it last year. Last year, there were probably less words, but they didn’t necessarily fit together. Or it was just more difficult to process. This year, it’s more complex but it’s easier to execute and memorize and remember because everything builds on something. You start with a base concept, and it gets more and more complicated.

Trubisky said that quarterback play is how fast you can process and he will have plenty to process in the coming weeks in order to make sure the offense is ready for better results than they were able to achieve a year ago.

That’s no secret, Breiner adds. That’s kind of our deal.

And so here is Fitzgerald on that training table, explaining his excitement in an altered role within Mississippi State’s offense—from battering ram to deep ball thrower—and how this fall is all football because he graduated in December, left with a group of painless elective courses. One is called Walking and Jogging, Fitzgerald snickers. Pretty intense.
