Barkley has already established himself as one of the NFL’s premier running backs, earning accolades such as NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year and multiple Pro Bowl selections. However, McCaffrey, under the guidance of San Francisco’s head coach Kyle Shanahan, has enjoyed a stellar career highlighted by leading the league in rushing yards and impressive postseason performances. Despite statistical comparisons favoring McCaffrey, Barkley’s move to Philadelphia presents an opportunity for him to reach new heights alongside Hurts and the Eagles’ team culture.
