Ben McAdoo: We’ve got to get ball into Christian McCaffrey’s hands

Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey had 10 carries and four catches in last Sunday’s loss to the Browns and he was asked his thoughts about his workload on Wednesday.

McCaffrey said, via the team’s website, that “whatever it takes to win is all that I want to do.” If the Panthers won, there probably wouldn’t be too many questions about McCaffrey’s role in the offense but they were there for offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo on Thursday.

His answer suggested that he thinks more McCaffrey would be a good way to get wins. McAdoo said, via Steve Reed of the Associated Press, that “we’ve got to get the ball in his hands” when discussing McCaffrey’s workload heading into this weekend’s game against the Giants.

One thing that would help is running more offensive plays altogether. The Panthers had just 50 plays against the Browns and increasing that number should lead to more McCaffrey and more chances to put points on the board.

  1. Ben McAdoo is the guy that steals and eats your lunch out of the office fridge. No one has caught him in the act yet,but we all suspect exactly who it might be. Why do you think he got fired in NY?

  2. Someone needs to tell McAdoo that it’s his actual job as OC to call plays to get the ball in the hands of Christian McCaffrey.

  3. Yes, let’s break McCaffrey early in the season. Use him on every play. Hell, he’s got one good leg left!!! Opposing teams will never figure out our plays!!! Bwahahaa!!!!!
