The New York Jets are eliciting opinions from every corner of the country. Even the man in the White…
Cunningham is Key
Even though he could.
Cunningham only played in 7 of Middle's 12 games last season, but there is a direct correlation between Cunningham's presence on the field, and the numbers that quarterback, Logan Kilgore, was able to put up. In the first four games, Kilgore threw 12 touchdowns with only 4 interceptions, and was completing better than 60 percent of his passes. When Cunningham missed the next four games, starting with Western Kentucky, Kilgore's Touchdown-Intecption ratio turned to 1:1, and he only met his completion average for the first four games once in that stretch.
Coach Rick Stockstill reinforced this notion at the recent Sun Belt Media Day, pointing out that while the Blue Raiders are known for their passing attack, before Cunningham got injured last season, Middle led the conference in rushing yards per game.
All that said, Cunningham's worth is being recognized by the national media, after garnering a spot on the Doak Walker Award watch list, only one of three Sun Belt Conference players to do so.
In his final season as a Blue Raider, Cunningham should have ample opportunity to break out of his injury plagued career, and prove to the nation what the Blue Raider Nation already knows: @BCnumerodos, es numero uno.
