Like I said, he's fine as a special teams player. But how many years are we going to wait McKnight to break out? (Plenty of rookies make an impact immediately when given the chance.) It's not like the QB position, where you're learning to read NFL defenses or adapt to the speed of the game. He runs (supposedly). So go out and friggin' break off a run, especially without coughing up the ball.
I'm tired of waiting for him to show up. Know why? Because it'll never happen.
