I contended Deangelo is the 3rd best RB on the team

Issue as I see it is we are stuck with DWill and Stewart no matter what anyone thinks due to Marty Hurney contract incompetence.

Our mother fugging Offensive Coordinator needs to look at the roster available and design and call plays to put these players in a position to succeed. Not continually show up Sundays with his head up his ass trying to put a square peg in a round hole.

Amen. But harder said than done. (Joke)

I just don't sugar coat it....

And I have said numerous times that scheme and offenses matter greatly.....and that has been the biggest issue with Williams of late. FIT matters tremendously. What we do plays against what he does.

Issue is people tune all that out and just read CRA said something bad about my beloved DWill.....so I don't waste my time complimenting his positives anymore

I think the only thing we disagree about at this point is that joe Montana is the goat over Tom Brady

Regardless of their running ability, with our current situation on the o-line I would rather see Stewart out there, especially in key pass protection situations. When was the last time D-Will had a great blitz pickup like this?

Have you ever seen a play with so many defenders that are going after the QB end up on their ass at once. What a thing of beauty.

Conditioning. He may have lost weight, but he is still too soft in the middle to carry the ball 20 times a game.

He carried the load in San Diego several times when Matthews was injured. He had no problem then, and he can do it now.

No doubt that figures in, the year he took over for an injured RB in San Diego and the year after that he had 300 plus carries averaging 4.0 YPC, so sightly better.

 

DWill was a great RB for us and an even better person but we really don't need to keep paying/featuring him anymore. 

 

It sucks but that's what it is...the moment he got that contract he was more of detriment to the team than a benefit and that situation was not of his own doing of course. All the RB money could/should have went to more OL/Secondary help(or even WR at the time).

 

So as cool and as great he was for us there is no way I would have given him that contract or one even close quite frankly.

 

Also like you pointed out in another post Shula isn't even going to use DWill the way he should be used so it's one big expensive waste.

Deangelo still has a place on the team, but I think it would be as a change of pace after someone else has softened up the defense.

 

I'm really excited about how this Gaffney kid develops.

Take into account injury history and he's 2nd.  Tolbert is the best RB on the team and it's not really close.

you could make an argument for Dwill Stewart or Tolb as the best RB on the team... good backfield, we need to get some holes opened up for em!

For a season?  His best year he averaged 49 yards per game.  The only games he got significant carries in were blow outs

The years Tolbert carried the load in San Diego he had a worse season than Deangelo last season.  Less YPA and less YPG.  He did have 11 tds though, but he was the short yardage back so that is kind of expected

Tolbert is versatile. May not be the best at any one part of the game but you never doubt he hits the line with everything he's got. Good guy to have on the roster. Would have been a fantastic sign if 28 and 34 were done with their contracts at the time.
