(By Darin Gantt, dgantt@heraldonline.com) Carolina Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams didn't practice all week with a foot sprain, and he didn't even make the trip to St. Louis.p/And you know what? It might not be the worst thing to give him all the time he needs to get well.

No, we should have traded him while we could get something valuable (maybe a 2nd round pick) for him. Too late for that now....

Stewart is the replaceable of the two...34 has more vision and explosiveness. I'd like to keep both, but if I had to pick, I'd send 28 packing. 34 can get it done with the help of goodson and sutton.

I'm sorry but DeAngelo is soft. A foot sprain? Are you kidding me? A foot sprain?

Look, I'm as big of a Carolina fan as anyone here but what is this guy thinking? I agree that this might be a good chance for J-Stewart to get rolling but D'Angelo certainly isn't rolling either, and he hasn't done much for awhile now. Yes, his 2008 season (the 2nd half of it was very, very good), but last year he wasn't dominant and then he got hurt and barley played for the final 5 games--now he's out with a foot sprain. Weird how Brett Favre plays with a broken ankle in Minnesota and our #1 RB skips the game and misses the flight due to a "foot sprain".

I have no clue why we didn't trade him before the deadline, everyone see's what Stewart can do when he gets the full share to himself and it probably helps having all the carries getting into a groove.

In my opinion DeAngelo is not only soft he's close to be very over-rated in my estimation. He's not a top-tier #1 RB, he's had a lot more bad games (ie costing us the game vs. New Olreans) than good games.

I'm not saying, just sayin

You should check out the YPC before you speak like you know what you're talking about. Here, I'll help you:

http://www.pro-footb.../W/WillDe02.htm

http://www.pro-footb.../S/StewJo00.htm

Williams has had the highest YPC ever since Stewart has arrived. Btw, Stewart hasn't looked good this year at all. 3 yards a carry? At least Williams has a little over 4.

It's laughable you are comparing Favre's injury to Williams'. A RB needs both ankles to be healthy in order to make cuts. A QB just needs his feet and ankles to be good enough so he can move around the poket.

Last year he played in 13 games, had 1117 yards, 5.2 YPC, and 7 TDs. Besides the touchdowns, his numbers are pretty close to what he did in 2008. So his season last year was just as good as his 08 season.

Absolutely re-sign him, and beef up the offensive line.

DeAngelo Williams is not a top-tier RB, I'm sorry. But when your 1-5 and your starting #1 RB has 1 TD and is averaging 4.1 yards per/carry.....your not very good.

The guy has 1 rushing TD in his last 14 games (FOURTEEN GAMES), he hasn't run for 100 yards in a single game since week 11 (in 2009). He's now missed his first game in 2010 after barley playing the final 5 in '09.

I'm sorry but what am I missing and what are you seeing, besides living off his monster 2008 season. I know a few other RB's who were good 2 years ago---what separates DeAngelo besides your perception?

Seriously, I want to know, what has this guy done in the last year?

1100 yards in 13 games last year is pretty impressive. Just saying.

Give DWill a huge contract. Resign Stewart too when he's in the last year of his contract. Get Ingram with your top pick in next years draft.

Build the team through the RB position. Signed the 2nd to worst team in the league.

Your talking about statistics from over a year ago. He's now been hurt twice now and has 1 (ONE) RUSHING TD in his last 14 games. 4.1 yards per/carry this year and 1-100 yard rushing game in his previous 12 contests.

Those are updated stats, not dwelling on what he did over a year ago and certainly not what he did in 2008.

Someone tell me what he's done this year (something noteworthy besides his 39 yard run vs. the Saints). I think some of you are in denial about this guy, he's not as good as you think he is.
