Look at their YPC in games that Williams and Stewart both played in. Williams far out performed Stewart. Not only did he have a better YPC, but he did it in the first part of the game against the fresh defense. Stewart would often come in more during the second half. These are the things you notice when you actually watch games, and don't just rely on stats.
Stewart plays hurt.....DeAngleo doesn't. Do you notice that when watching? I mean, it is a obvious difference when Stewart is healthy and hurt (or I should say hurt and just dinged). I think that explains part of it. Another part of it is Stewart's style of play works better when he gets a larger load and can punish.
The real arguement is that you claim a reason Clausen sucked is b/c Willams got hurt. I don't think there is anything to support that. The team has rushed for more yards when Williams went down. In fact, I would argue that Williams getting hurt helped Clausen. It gave Goodson more time and Goodson is a more friendly RB when you have a QB looking to checkdown every play (than anyone on the roster)
