Christian McCaffrey Shatters NFL MVP Tradition

The NFL MVP usually goes to quarterbacks, but Christian McCaffrey's recent performance has people questioning if that should change

McCaffrey had a fantastic game, with 177 scrimmage yards and four touchdowns in the 49ers' win over the Cardinals

He set a franchise record for consecutive games with a touchdown, surpassing Jerry Rice

McCaffrey's been a game-changer for the 49ers since he joined them nearly a year ago

He showed his versatility by scoring touchdowns in various ways during the game

McCaffrey leads the NFL in both yards gained (600) and touchdowns (7) in the first four games of the season

He's in rare company with legends like Jim Brown and Emmitt Smith for his early-season stats

Since he became the 49ers' starting running back in October 2022, they haven't lost a game, and McCaffrey leads the league in scrimmage yards during this period

The 49ers' quarterback, Brock Purdy, is also having a standout season and could be an MVP contender
