The season is over for the Carolina Panthers and Christian McCaffrey miss most of it due to injuries. Media obligations are a year-round affair, though and he’s been busy today doing virtual radio row hits ahead of Super Bowl LV on Sunday.
That included an appearance on First Take. ESPN beat reporter David Newton characterized McCaffrey’s comments on Twitter. Supportive of embattled Carolina Panthers quarterback Teddy Bridgewater as he had been when the regular season ended.
McCaffrey disagrees with that assessment. He replied to Newton, essentially saying he praise Bridgewater and not to make up a story where there is none.
Good for McCaffrey for sticking up for himself and his teammate, who has probably received an unfair amount of criticism in recent months.
While general manager Scott Fitterer declined to comment on anyone in his opening press conference. Both team owner David Tepper and coach Matt Rhule have publicly critical or cold-shouldered in regards to their quarterback.
Bridgewater had a disappointing season – especially after Week 10 when he appeared to have lost his confidence. He doesn’t deserve to be slander personally, though. Any hits at Bridgewater should be purely about his game and not as a person. We still wish him nothing but success UFABET.
