The only surprise about Christian McCaffrey's fine first game with thePanthers?He didn't catch any pa ses.Otherwise, theheavy first-halftouchesthe rookie first-round running backgot Wednesday against most of the Texans' first-string defense sevencarries for 33 yards left Carolina fans wanting a whole lot more of that when it counts.FANTASY SOURCE: RB rankings | SN's Top 200 Luke Kuechly Jersey McCaffrey's highlight was a 12-yard run between the tackles on his team's second po se sionin which he squirted past Houston's linebackers to fight for a first down. The play sparked the Panthers to a touchdown on the drive, which came three plays later on a leaping end zone catch by wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin.That play showed some of the inside powerMcCaffrey consistently flashed as a Heisman finalist at Stanford. Not to ignore his speed and Game Cam Newton White Jersey quickne s, McCaffrey delivered both on a 7-yard burst around the corner to end the first quarter. Before that play, he got his lone target, a short incompletion from No. 3 QB Joe Webb.Although one can't read into veteran early-down starterJonathan Stewart getting just two carries there's no reason to play the 30-year-old much in the preseason it was intriguingthat the Panthers put McCaffrey right into the thick Christian McCaffrey Jersey of their power rushing attack.VIDEO: Texans rookie Foreman shows off his agility There's no reason, either, for Carolina's coaching staff to tip its hand on exactly how it plans to use McCaffrey, and how much. Much of the buzz from Julius Peppers Jersey the Panthers' training camp practices has beenabout all that McCaffrey can doas a receiver, including undre sing linebacker Luke Kuechly with a sick open-field move.The fact McCaffrey can do everything well right away, down to the little things in pa s protection, is a "good problem" Men's Carolina Panthers Jersey for his teamto have.His skill set is special enough for him to deliver in an expansive role. With Stewart, there's no doubt the offense is more predictable on a particular down.McCaffrey was already going to bescary to NFC South rivalsas a so-called change of pace. Not knowing exactly how he's going to come at opponents? That's downright terrifying.
