that would be something to think about long and hard, but at the end of the day il have to pass.we live by, and die by running the rock.


Your kidding right? A second round pick? Maybe a number 1 and 2 but I wouldn't trade Deangelo for NOTHING.

Go Panthers

Second round pick for a pro bowler. Keep dreaming. Make it a top 20 pick and it becomes a serious offer.


I agree. It is laughable to think that they could get a pro bowl star running back for a 2nd rounder. I wouldn't even take a 1st rounder b/c 1st round picks are never a sure thing and DW is a sure thing. Maybe a 1st and 3rd if Stewart was 100%, which he clearly isn't. I would rather trade Stewart than Williams b/c he hasn't yet proven he is an every down back; DW has.

Personally the only guy I would like to see gone for picks is TD believe it or not. In this scheme the WLB is one of easiest positions to sub in and not miss a beat. Anderson could play for a few games and draft a guy like Washington (crazy good both coverage and run support) in the 2nd and let him take over around midseason.

Since he will be a RFA if things hold true and if we he were to get an offer with the 1st/3rd tender, I say let him go. Save money and I actually like Washington's potential more.

I can see how they see him as Barry's second coming but he's ours. Sorry.

Noooo sir, have some pie.

You don't trade away a guy in his prime to replace him with a rookie. Davis is thriving right now.

I love pie.

Consider this Anderson didn't start until week 12 against the Jets, a game in which he got 10 tackles. But in only 6 games amassed 49 tackles and a sack. The 6 games he started included a couple of the most dominating D performances we have had in a long time. Our D looked unbeatable at times. Anderson is not the same kind of athlete as TD but in this scheme he is fine.

If anyone considers trading any of our marquee players (Smith, Gross, Dwill, or Stewart) should consider this just as likely and in fact the most realistic and least damaging of any trade being discussed.

And yes you can replace him with a rookie. Just look at all of the rookie LB's from last year if you need proof. LB and RB are the 2 easiest positions to translate to from college.

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.


its not even debatable.
