Gerald McCoy had funny compliment for Christian McCaffrey while mic’d up
Christian McCaffrey has been virtually unstoppable this season, and his Carolina Panthers teammates are still in awe of what he is able to accomplish on a weekly basis. On Sunday, Gerald McCoy had a great way of expressing that.
McCoy was mic’d up for the Panthers’ game against the New Orleans Saints, and the defensive lineman told the NFL Films crew on the sideline that McCaffrey is the “most skilled white dude in NFL history.” He also called McCaffrey a “bad white boy.”
“That’s a bad white boy right there… Most skilled white dude in NFL history.”

It’s rare for a non-quarterback to win the NFL MVP Award, but McCaffrey is a legitimate candidate. He already had over 1,500 total yards from scrimmage and 14 touchdowns entering Sunday, and that was in just 10 games.
McCaffrey is arguably the best running back in football, and he has been trying to counter the white running back stereotype dating back to his days at Stanford. He sent a very subtle message before the season hinting that we should expect big things from him, and to say he has followed through would be an understatement.
