But Stewart has been running hard, yet our blocking sucks? I believe it's more Dwill than the blocking



A reminder to all.
DWill is averaging 5.1 YPR this season.
JStew is averaging 4.5 YPR this season.

Most of that came from his option play vs NO.

Plus jstew is great at picking up blitzes, Dwill can't.

He's never stopped. We just faced a good pass defense, so we dumped off short passes and ran a lot. Lions have trouble with the run.

I think that removing a player's most explosive play, especially when you are talking about the kind of back D-Will is, really is a bad thing to do. However, for comparison's sake, if we remove both player's biggest run:

Dwill - 92 carries, 402 yards, 4.36 YPC, 69 yard run removed
Stew - 82 carries, 343 yards, 4.18 YPC, 29 yard run removed

Notice they are now much closer, but Stew isn't dominating D-Will by any stretch.

Plus jstew is great at picking up blitzes, Dwill can't.


This is totally incorrect. The last couple weeks Stew has missed critical blocks... DWill has had some good pickups (and Stew has had some good pickups other times, too). IMO the two are MUCH closer than some huddle posers here acknowledge.

edit: wow, for some reason I thought DWill had more carries than he did. Fixed the math - DWill is now still ahead of Stew with his run removed, lolll

Can't say that at all. Williams has been an excellent blocker the past several games. He has been a beast picking up blitzing corners and linebackers. He looks better than Stewart right now.

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.

This logic continues to amuse the sh!t out of me. You want to hold a brilliant 69 yard touchdown run against DWill?

Common sense time. Dwill has 93 rushes for 471 yards. Fine, take away 1 rush and 69 yards on the TD run. 402 yards divided by 92 attempts is 4.4 yards per rush. Even if you penalize DWill for his greatness, his yards per rush average is still 1/10 of a yard behind JStew.

Let's stop this ridiculous f**king arguement.

He was running hard, and hitting the hole with great acceleration. Hope he continues this so we don't have to bitch about his mega contract


I made a topic in the bye week that detailed that the running backs have not been the issue in regards to production, they've both been around career averages all season. they haven't dropped off, their opportunities have.

Exactly!

Yep again, I was posting this at the smae time you were. Stew has been more of a liability than D-Will in blocking lately.

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.

Both running backs have been forced to adjust to a different blocking scheme than what Davidson used. I think we've started to see over the past few weeks both backs getting more comfortable with the system and that is a huge benefit to a running back like DeAngelo.
