Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey 'had an unbelievable rookie year and did a lot more than that a lot of people would be asked to do and handled (it) all,' offensive coordinator Norv Turner said. 'He's got such talent, you're just going to keep finding ways to get him the ball and try to create more space for him. That hard-nosed running between the tackles he can certainly do, but I don't know that's what you want to lead with him. Christian is ahead of (where Darren Sproles was), and there are some things we can do that he did, but Christian can run wide receiver routes. Theres a lot of things we did with Darren that apply, and there are some things that I think we can do differently with Christian,' Turner said.
