Williams wants to stay in Carolina

The same people anointing Mike Goodson as a legit NFL back are likely the same people that swore up and down that Matt Moore was the real deal and the fact that he picked up his wins and numbers in "garbage time" relatively speaking meant very little.

Do people on this site realize that Stewart is making MORE than Williams at this point under a rookie contract? Stewart has a 5 year 14 million dollar contract that runs through 2013. Williams is due to get $2.1 this year up from less than a million last year.

He has been underpaid for years and hasn't complained about it. Now it is his turn to get paid and people are ready to cast him out. He deserves every penny of $6 million a year. Not only is he worth this on the open market, but you can also look at it as repayment for the years he was making less than a million as a pro bowl back.

uuuuummmm what? do you just want to argue this morning? You see I said Stewart, right?

No one is WANTING to replace DWill. It is purely a case of economics. It is EXTREMELY difficult to keep three very good RB's...two of which will demand big contracts. It can Cap Strap your team if you have too much tied up in one position.

Lastly, good RB's are much easier to find than you think....no way you tie up $15M a year in that position....what the Dwill and then Stewart contracts will cost us.

You are letting your emotions and love for a player cloud your decision. This is the tough part of running a team.

What 3 very good running backs to we have on our team? Please tell me we are not anointing Goodson a very good running back after a couple of games. Is Brian Westbrook a very good running back because he had a good game last night? I bet we could get him cheap also. Please tell me where this running back tree is planted? Last time I checked it was very difficult to find good running backs. Even the Patriots have struggled to find one of these.

If we can get Deangelo for decent money we need to do it, he's a beast and when our line is pushing he plays all out. Anyone who is thinking Goodson is on the same level is ignorant

No not looking to argue. It just makes me furious when people are ready to burn B of A down because of other free agents we let go. Many of these other free agents were older and made more than Stewart and Williams.

Harris for instance, made roughly $3.5 million v. Williams at $2.1 and is older. To say Harris is a top 5 or 10 safety in the league is laughable, but people never complained about spending this money. Everyone all of a sudden is so fiscally responsible.

Whatever... you are losing me. If we get rid of one I said I would rather trade Stewart was all. You want to argue and I'm too stoned to give a poo what you want.

All I am saying is it is crazy to get rid of either. Stewart is under contract until 2013, and DWill has earned and is worth $6 million a year.

Not trying to get side tracked, but their are "other" players that are far worse team members and are older than DWill that should go before him.

people aren't rewarded new contracts for what they've done in the past. it's for what they're expected to do in the future.

and williams has only had 2 seasons that would be considered pro bowl production.

a new contract with $30-35 million guaranteed money? (5 years)

not gonna happen.

Running backs are hard to find now? LOL people are making stuff up to justify overpaying a disposable, easily replaceable position all in the name of emotion

that's usually what happens when one person is drafted higher than the other.

He has been underpaid for years and hasn't complained about it.

why is it that no one seems to remember carolina trying to extend williams just after the 2008 season? both parties agreed to leave his contract alone...that sounds like a polite way of saying they didn't see eye to eye.

that might be why he isn't complaining.

I hope he doesn't read this forum. Many here are ready to replace him with a guy that had 2 good and 1 decent game that all ended in loses. Amazing....Don't get me wrong, I am happy Goodson is playing well. Did any of you actually watch those games? For 2 of those 3 games the O-line actually opened up holes for him and Stewart to run through. DWill was getting yards earlier in the year out of absolutely nothing. Almost all his gains were cutbacks. For those of you that don't know what a cutback is, it is basically an "oh crap" the middle is clogged so I have to turn on the jets and go outside. Not an easy way to make a living. JStewart found this out the hard way when he got the start and then blamed the OLine.

People here were ready to burn down B of A stadium for all of the free agents we let go this year. Now the best one on our team and one of the best in the NFL is up and you want to let him go because he is 27 for a guy that played good for 2 games and an injury prone power runner?

Were any of you fans back in the Biakabutuka days? He was the second coming of christ to Charlotte and it didn't work out well. I hope Goodson and Stewart work out, but you don't start trading proven elite running backs for rookies.

Williams patiently waited his turn to start in Carolina when he probably deserved to start earlier. The Panthers rewarded him by drafting Stewart in the first round and pretty much slapping DWill in the face. Does DWill pitch a fit or ask to be traded? No, he shows up for work and takes it a step farther by embracing Stewart. Can you name me another running back duo that gets along as well as these two? DWill could have made this miserable for Carolina and Stewart (remember Peppers). Now it is time for him to get paid after everything he has done for us and the consensus here is to trade him for a guy that has 3 decent games. Simply Amazing!!!! Alright, I am off my soap box now...

Yeah, you're letting emotions get in the way of business. Um, no one is trying to let go of williams in favor of rookies since none of our backs are rookies to begin with LOL. And the team didnt let go of free agents, there were no free agents because of the cba, remember? They cut old veterans who were overpaid. Despite these obvious false statements people still agree with this post which isn't surprising
