McCaffrey with a 14 carry, 103 yard effort in the loss to the Ravens this week. He just seems to be getting stronger as the season goes on. He is up to 1395 yards for the year with two games to play.

I have been searching YouTube for white running back’s 100 yard games and came across this one from Tommy Vardell in 1993. He should have gotten more attempts and he had the tools to be a 1,000 yard power back.

Best RB in the league is white.

I honestly think he deserves MVP none of the caste QBs have stood out to claim the prize of best player in the league.

McCaffrey had 4 100 yard games in last 5 (and one was only 7 yards short of that mark).

Came across this on youtube.
The way Dickie Post runs reminds me so much of CMac. He was the last white guy to lead the league in rushing (AFL 1969) before CMC.
What do you think?
Go to 9:50 on this video.

That same year (1969) that Dickie Post lead the league in rushing, his teammate, Lance Alworth, lead the league in receptions.
