Panthers’ Cam Erving: We’re a team, not the Carolina Christian McCaffreys

NFL: SEP 23 Panthers at Texans

If Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey misses significant time with the hamstring injury he suffered on Thursday night, the rest of the team is ready.

That’s the word from Panthers left tackle Cameron Erving, who said after the game that they’re bigger than any one player.

“We’re a football team. We’re not called the Carolina Christian McCaffreys,” Erving said.

Last year McCaffrey missed 13 games and the Panthers had a bad season, but his absence was hardly the only reason: They went 0-3 in the games McCaffrey played in 2020 and 5-8 in the games he missed. This year the Panthers are 3-0 with McCaffrey, and they may have to prove they can keep it going without him.

  1. Sorry but yes, they are the Carolina Christian McCaffery’s….. but interesting to see life in Sammy boy….Happy for you guys there!!!

  2. We’ve seen the Panthers go undefeated for the first third of the season then end up with a losing record. If they keep this up, that wont happen. Interested to see where the Saints/Panthers end up this season. NFC South isnt as aesthetically pleasing as other divisions but its underrated.

  3. I understand why he feels that way, but there had to be a better way to say it. It just sounds bitter.

  4. The league is based on stars just like lead singers of bands…Smoky Robinson and the Miracles, Diana Ross ad the Supremes, Tom Brady and the Buccaneers. Without stars, the public don’t watch.

    Been watching profootball since 1964. Nobody ever stopped watching because their favorite “star” retired. “Stars” come and go in sports. They are like cars, as soon as the current one is used up another one comes along.

  6. AT least Carolina christian McCafreys sounds better and less vague than say: the Washington Football team…
