Where's all the fairweather fans?

5 posts in this topic

Claiming the true number one spot in the NFC South is sure to bring some fairweather fans. Also, may I remind everyone back in May when people hated DeAngelo and were on Stewart's jock and how many times AK had to defend DWill? Those guys are fairweather fans too. I remember arguing with someone when they said DeAngelo was a wasted pick shortly after the draft and how he was a bust.

Different Deangelo from last year to this year. Stop trying to bait people.

Not a huge difference as you might think, he showed lots of flashes on a crappy team last year. Of course, having a better quarterback and O-line is a big reason he's been able to show it this year.

No I don't. I do remember people like me saying Fox didn't take Stewart with the 13th pick to shove him on the bench and the reality was most likely he'd end up starting.

And you know what? If Williams was playing like he did in '06 and '07, Stewart most likely would be starting now.

Lucky for us Williams isn't. He's playing lights out and seeing as I like most others who were making this point are bigger fans of the team than certain players, we're pretty happy about it.

And also having a defined starting role (Well, much more defined than when Foster was here) sure helps his production.

    • Best suited for a rotational role
    • We just resigned Cody until 2020-21 and Frank will be on his rookie contract until 19-20. I think we don't need to worry about this at all. The biggest issue we have will be Kemba, but since Kemba and Dwight expire at the same time we will have plenty of money. That Howard trade really helped free up Miles 12m at the right time.  Now, as far as fit is concerned. Zeller just makes everybody look better. He will help out the second unit tremendously. I think he will be a great fit with Monk and Frank in that 2nd unit.  Teams go small, take out Dwight put Zeller in. Marvin not shooting well, but in Frank and team with Dwight or Zeller.  We now have options, something we didn't have last year. 
    • Depends on what the play calling looks like this year. I try to avoid judging individuals on the success of a group, unless it's the HC. If Shula's play calling looks like hot garbage like it has so far and Cam & co. are just making up for it like in 2015, then yes I'll continue to hate him. If the playbook (and situational playcalling) is indeed better then I'll be glad and start warming up to Shula.
