How can anybody not root for Christian McCaffrey? I’m not saying you need to root for the Panthers, but how could you cheer against him?

The dude is a freak of nature on the football field, a good dude and arguably the most dynamic running back in league history.

He can run the ball, catch the rock, return kicks and is an absolute nightmare for defenses to deal with.

I can’t wait to see what he does over the next few years with the Panthers. I have no doubt he will continue to torture defensive coordinators.

The man is a star, and he’s a hell of a lot of fun to watch play.
