Christian McCaffrey ends Kuechly at Panthers practice

To borrow a line from MJ, "the ceiling is the roof" for Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey.

The first-round rookie has wowed every set of eyeballs in his time zone this spring and summer, showing off a combination of speed and lateral agility that could single-handedly transform the Panthers on offense this season. We got another tantalizing peek at that game-changing ability on Wednesday during Panthers practice. The victim in coverage? Oh, just Luke Kuechly, arguably the best linebacker in the NFL.

That's Tecmo Bo Jackson stuff right there. Kuechly missed about 14 tackles on that play. Be afraid NFC South, be very afraid.
