Jonathan Stewart doesn’t care who runs the football as long as it benefits his team.
The Panthers running back on Tuesday dismissed having any fears about sharing carries with rookie Christian McCaffrey and clarified he isn’t concerned about splitting playing time with the fellow rusher.
“Stop talking about that. Who cares?” Stewart said, via ESPN. “We want to win the Super Bowl, right? That’s the bottom line. It’s not about people getting carries. It’s not about people getting catches or touchdowns. It’s about what can you contribute to get us to the Super Bowl.”
“The rules were changed for a reason, and I thought we had a good outcome,” Lewis added. “Again, this is a team game, and … I don’t understand why we want to give in to individual celebrations.”
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell disagrees with Lewis, who is on the league’s competition committee and is one of its longest-tenured head coaches as the Bengals Cheap Braves Jerseys chief since 2003.
“I’ve heard it from Marvin before,” Goodell said Tuesday at the NFL’s spring meetings in Chicago. “We’ve had these discussions over the last couple years. I think the players will prove him wrong on that. I think the players will be responsible, show good sportsmanship Cheap Football Jerseys Xxl and do it in a way that is entertaining but also respectful.”
