Lions to show interest in DeAngelo Williams?

133 posts in this topic

Panthers will not and should not trade DWill or JStew. The Panthers could not gain anyone of enough value....not even close, compared to what they would be losing.

With Matt Moore as the QB...Panthers only need to fill in a few pieces...which they should be able to do with a decent draft and a couple of free agent pickups.

I'd consider this if it was a first, but they're not trading their second overall pick.

the panthers would probably use the pick on a running back

from what I hear, this is a weak draft class. only guys I know worth drafting are CJ Spiller, Jahvid Best, and Stafon Johnson. but of course there are usually RBs that are taken late that end up good. why am I even talking about RBs again?

Let me think about this. Not NO but H%^l NO! D Will is a beast and Stew is a beastly compliment. I'll keep em both!

Can't trade your big playmaker. Dumb, dumb, dumb. For a first, maybe, but you've got a guy who can score 15 touchdowns for you. Why trade that?

We've got arguably the single best one-two punch at RB in the league, and a very effective weapon in that. And yet a significant portion of the fanbase (if you consider this board representative) really seems to want to cut the power of that weapon in half.

And please don't give me that we have enough depth to keep it going even with the loss of one of the top guys. There is no way anyone can reasonably suggest that any of the other combos (Williams-Goodson, Williams-Sutton, Stewart-Goodson, Stewart-Sutton) is anywhere even close to the quality of Williams-Stewart as a rushing tandem.

There are other teams that have put all their eggs in a single basket with "workhorse" backs, and it's been rough. These days, even when healthy, neither Adrian Peterson nor LaDainian Tomlinson is what they once were, and the decline has been quick (almost sudden). One of the prime reasons for that is their being used as the "workhorse" for their team rather than as part of a 'two-headed monster' like the Panthers and some other teams prefer.

Knowing that it tends to shorten the shelf-life of good runners, I can't understand why on earth people want us to switch to that model.

As far as using a high pick on a RB, no matter how high you go you're still trading a proven commodity for an unproven one.

I think the day may come when the panthers have no choice.:(

the panthers will never trade williams there will be history with him just need to get a little better on OL the past 2 season they started slow with both runing backs it was like the 3rd or 4th game before they found what they need to do if they where runing like they where and injuries didnt happen i think could easly get 1600 yard so i say never to that trade
