Panthers video: Christian McCaffrey puts incredible receiving skills on display with behind-the-back catch
What makes the Panthers’ superstar so good is that he does more than just run. At different times, McCaffrey has shown that he can be a finesse runner, as well as a bruiser that can get those extra few yards.
However, he has also shown that he is one of the best receivers in football. He’s not just one of the best receiving backs, but just the best receivers – period. And if you are not 100 percent sold on the superstar, he is constantly doing things to make believers out of even the biggest doubters. That even includes during these times when there is no practice, games, or team workouts to create content.
Instead, McCaffrey is out there with limited people. And he is *checks notes* catching passes in stride behind his back. Yes, seriously, via The Checkdown.
That's a RUNNING BACK making this catch 😳 @Panthers

Is there anything this Panthers star can not do? At this point, it’s getting hard to think of much. If he said he wanted to try and be a quarterback for a season or play defense, people probably would not even bat an eye.
Of course, there is a lot of hard work that goes into being that good. But there is also some natural talent that you just can’t teach. At some point, you have to assume that part of this is precisely what McCaffrey was born with.
Sure, you could argue that this is something that anyone could do technically. Especially considering we don’t know if it took McCaffrey multiple times. Let’s remember just how good this Panthers running back is at everything else. Then think about the fact that it is incredibly unfair that he can do this too.
McCaffrey is often talked about as a lone wolf. He is the one star in a weak offense for the Panthers. However, while he is the best player on the offense, there are quite a few big-name players on the team. McCaffrey’s star just shines the brightest.
