Is Dwill back to form?

44 posts in this topic

So, does D'Will struggle with the pass? I can't remember cussin' his contributions at any point in recent history....Aside from the "he's injury prone" claims after he was obviously shelved late in the season, I really can't say he has been held back by injury.

No. He is a complete RB, he can run, block & catch.

Plus he & Stew are awesome teammates for each other & the rest of the team. The 'no drama' part of our RB tandem should not be overlooked, b/c it is important.

Its amazing that we dont have many people that love both enuff to not consistently have these convos lol.

I agree!

I do have to admit tho that I am 1 who will point out (post about) the strengths of the 'other' RB if someone claims that 1 is better than the other. They are both awesome.

Because Stew is the better receiving RB in Chud's offense. Why? I don't know, but for receiving:

Stew has 33 rec for 329 yards

D-Will has 11 rec for 93 yards

It is not due to blitz pickup, it is his receiving ability.

How about the attempts for each? Stew has always been the third and long choice...Maybe the coaches are utilizing each for their strengths...I won't question it. Fug the contract numbers too...D'Will has the wheels....they need to use him by incorporating him into the philosophy instead of plugging him into it.

I've never looked at the tandem as a competition...Probably shortsighted, yet with the D'Will extension and Stew's impending resigning, maybe the prospect of them not being teammates at 30 & 26 years old should be seen as a probability...On the other hand, why not?

thats understandable. But after reading quite a few of these threads many people blindly pull for either side when in reality they both are pretty evenly skilled at this point. U give Dwill more oppurtunities to catch the ball, i bet he performs as well as Stew. U give Stew more carries, i bet he gets closer to Dwill.

On most plays, he was very decisive and probably ran as good as I can remember. His burst from the handoff was explosive. He must have been pumped last game, played with a chip on his shoulder. That is what we come to expect from D-Will.

I think the majority of us actually see the backs as pretty damn even overall, just with different strengths and weaknesses. Frankly I think there are more "LOL DWILL SUCKS STEW ALL THE WAY" people than those who dislike Stew or whatever, but the majority of us recognize the value of each and the different styles they both play with IMO.

DeAngelo has deficiencies in the pass blocking game, and has had them ever since he came into the league. Hell that's one of the reasons why we held on to Foster so long, and why Foster was getting so many reps when DWill appeared to be the superior runner.

This is not to say he's bad, far from it.

Okay. I'm out of this conversation, b/c this makes no sense.

D-Will has been the more consistent blocker of the 2 up until the end of last year when Stew became about equal to & now 'maybe' is a 'little' better the D-Will at blocking (at times). Stew horribly missed a block again last game & about got Cam killed. It may not have looked like he missed a block b/c he wasn't even close to his man. Where are you getting this from? :confused:

D-Will is also having abeen year running. Stew is having a better year receiving.

I've seen Dwill miss multiple blitz pickups, why do you think Chud puts jstew in for passing situations? Also Stewart has less carries than dwill.
