After last season's RB disaster until Stewart came back I'm more than fine with this. No more calling guys like Chris Yokozuna (or whatever) to get off his couch and fill in. As much as I love JStew you can't rely on him to stay healthy for a full season (not blaming Stewart either, dude takes some serious hits to the legs).
THIS!!! Was almost going to start a thread about Wegher resembling Stewart but too lazy. Glad you see it too. Wegher has the power to run people over and also has the speed to turn the corner on the outside. There aren't many backs that have that combination and that's why I think Wegher is a future number 1 back. As far as power goes Stewart's obviously in a class of his own but Wegher definitely reminds me of him!
Wegher had some impressive 3-4 yard runs on Thursday and his pass blocking was impressive as well. Like you said, Todman too often fell on first contact and reminded me of a back we just finished getting rid of!
My guess without seeing any cut ups or highlights... With his measurables playing at a D2 school he never had to learn how to run anything other than a go route. Probably can't run routes very well, he slipped on his comeback route last night resulting in the game ending INT. just a guess...
@UTkrasovic: Even with 3 dropped passes last night, I'd be nervous about losing WR Tyrell Williams to waivers. Talented. Shades of Floyd/Danario. @UTkrasovic: New to specials (Western Oregon didn't use him there), Chargers rookie Tyrell Williams has done good things there, too. That matters.
Ah sorry PD but I just don't see how the Chargers cut him, he's done quite well for himself the last 3 weeks. However if they do try to sneak him onto their practice squad for whatever reason I'd take a shot on him for sure. Nice find though.
