No doubt in my mind if Stewart got the carries he could be the best in the NFL.

A lot of people don't think yards per carry is an effective method to measure a back's productiveness. I for one believe it is.

to measure production, yes.

to compare with the accomplishments of the greats, hell no.

deangelo has done nothing yet to even think about comparing him to HOFers.

I pray this thread is a joke...

Seriously, I love Williams but some of you guys seriously overrate him. He is no where NEAR the level of the great backs like Payton, Sanders, Brown, etc. and he likely never will be.


And this is based on what? His numbers are comparable. What more do you want to compare them with?

If he were to last 8-9 years he will be near the top of the all time ypc list. His total yards may be hindered because of the 2 back system that he seems to enjoy in Carolina.

Williams IMO has all the tools and drive to be one of the all time greats.

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.

the really good thing is that you don't have to pay these guys on the same day. people who are saying we won't be able to keep all these guys forgets that little thing.

creative cap management can handle all of it.

Just so people understand.


what was that?? LOL! that's how people used to tackle back then?? that was awful! everyone was tackling like a 2nd string cornerback. 90% of them only used one arm. that was professional football? man, the game must've been boring back then. no way he's a top 20 all-time back. i had no idea that's the kind of competition he was up against.

True, but they will all make a significant amount any given year. This also gives us less room to bring in other talent. Or pay future proven talent.

Not sure if this is sarcasm. Jim Brown was one of the best ever. However you do have to consider that Brown was leaps and bounds more talented than about anybody at the time. He was a freak of his time. Not saying he was playing against scrubs but I don't he'd be able to bulldoze everyone in today's game. But at the same time he'd be playing with better equipment and better trainers, so who knows.

hardly sarcasm. linebackers today use solid tackling form, run mid-4 sec 40s, and use way better pursuit angles. all those defensive players were lumbering around like frankenstein. brown was powerful and had good change of direction, but i could say the same thing about lots of backs today. if chris johnson or deangelo williams had played against those defenses, they'd have smoked brown's records.

when everything is said and done, maurice jones-drew will have a better career and get to the HOF before deangelo williams does.
