Christian McCaffrey and the San Francisco 49ers aren’t playing in Sunday’s Super Bowl, but the star running back still managed to make headlines this week.
During a television appearance with NFL Network on Wednesday, McCaffrey joked that he hopes both the Kansas City Chiefs and the Philadelphia Eagles lose when the two teams square off in Super Bowl LVII.
That hasn’t exactly been the most popular take, so McCaffrey took to Twitter to offer an explanation. He wrote that he’s still not over the 49ers’ loss to the Eagles in the NFC Championship Game, feeling like he should be taking the field this week.
“The wounds are still fresh lol” McCaffrey wrote in response to the video.
The 49ers’ 31-7 loss to the Eagles came after the team saw both of its active quarterbacks injured. Starter Brock Purdy tore the UCL in his throwing elbow during the first quarter. Yet he had to return to the game after backup Josh Johnson, really the team’s fourth-string quarterback, was knocked out with a concussion.
Purdy’s throwing ability was severely limited by the injury. He finished the game 4-4 for just 23 yards.
In another television appearance Wednesday, McCaffrey said he feels like something was “stolen” from the 49ers. He also called for the NFL to amend its rules to allow teams to have a third quarterback active on game days without taking up a roster spot.
While McCaffrey said he won’t be watching the Super Bowl this year, he and his teammates will have plenty of fuel to try to make sure they’re playing in the big game next season.
