How DeAngelo Compares to the Greatest In History...

72 posts in this topic

I think this tandem if it stays together will go down in NFL History as THE BEST. They provide such a huge difference in style. DeAngelo moves by them... Stewart runs over them. How many times has D Will wore a defense down and Stewart comes in and runs over what is left of them.

I won't trade either and I would do whatever possible to keep them both.

I'm just glad we can probably keep them both since we let Peppers go.

Why anyone would want to trade him is INSANE. Those that make the point J. Stewart is a better back are not even close.

Before D'Will went out with his injury he had 1100 yds while during the same span. J. Stewart has only 700 yds. Big difference.

well, if you want to argue who is better DeAngelo in his 4th year year vs. Stewart in his 2nd.....DeAngelo should be better as that is when he should be peaking. If you want to look at what both proved to be after two years in the NFL.....Stewart looks to be on pace to be a better RB....and has done it while less than 100%.

before Williams went went out w/ his injury following the Viking game....he also 60 more carries depsite missing almost 2 full games (Tampa and most of Minny). Big difference.

Hopefully. It'll be hard to pay DeAngelo, Stewart, Beason, and probably Davis. If Moore turns out to be a good QB, he'll earn his payday as well.

i don't think williams is much better than stewart. there have been games where williams couldn't get anything going. he was getting shut down. then, stewart came in and started getting 4-5 yards per carry. the reverse has also happened.

i also don't think williams is the best back even in the league now. i don't care about stats when comparing which players are better. williams stats are inflated in part because of our dominate offensive line, and our commitment to the run. williams knows if he doesn't get 4-5 yards per carry, we're probably going to lose the game. that's a big motivation, and it usually leaves him slumped over, breathless, and looking like he's going to pass out. if other backs put in that much effort, they might do better too. when comparing which players are better, all i look at is talent level. i think williams is top 5 in the league now, maybe top 3. i'd have to put more thought in to it to narrow it down further.

and it's this type of lopsided comparison that i can't stand with most williams nuthuggers...

...like comparing williams 3 season 5.0+ ypc production with guys who have done the same thing but never touched the ball less than 200x...while williams's first season only had 144 attempts.

...or comparing him to peterson, who in 3 seasons has outworked and outproduced williams's 4 season total...and there's no comparison whatsoever if you only look at deangelo's first 3 seasons.

ps Jim Brown is a god...

i don't think some people know how much an insult it is to try to compare any of today's RBs to jim brown.

It's amazingly easy when you pick and choose your stats. But you have to realize that those numbers are horribly skewed. With the exception of LT, all of those guys were pound it out, workhorse guys- DWill and LT get their numbers from an occasional 50-70 yard run. And you have to credit the Oline for opening up holes to get those big runs.
