THe same things that Stewart lacks right now. He bowls ahead and rarely makes the sharp move. Hits the hole but misses opportunities one or two gaps over. Things he is learning from Williams. In a season or two they will both be dynamic. Best 1-2 punch in the league. Fox will be ecstatic.

I honestly wish we could somehow bring Vinny back. I dont know how or what postion he would fill, but it seemed that everybody learned somthing.
Even Delhomme, Smith,Williams ,who are all great and smart vetrans said they learned alot from spending just half a seaon with the guy. He mightve very well been a reason for our success right now.

Actually, during the start of the season for the first few games it still looked like Williams wasn't playing up to his potential, while Stewart would come in and give every ounce he had. Once the media caught on and kept mentioning Stewart over and over thats when Williams really started to show he wanted to be the starter and he wanted to be the guy everyone was talking about.
You can tell he is running with a cause compared to the first few games. Now everyone is talking about Williams.
I think Williams slow start was more because of O-line injuries than anything else. The starting O-line couldn't stay together in the first half of the season, and that's why both backs weren't playing up to their potential.
There's no doubt that Williams has improved from the previous two seasons but I think people are going overboard when talking about it. The guy averaged 5.0 yards per carry last year, so it's not like he was a slouch. He just wasn't given the opportunity to start.
