Newton's 1 Yard Touchdown Runs

90 posts in this topic

How do you feel if you are Stewart or Williams? Are you frustrated that he is taking away some of your Touchdowns? Does it play into your long term view of your future here? Are you happy to sacrifice your personal financial gain and accolades? Is winning all that matters?

I think most RBs would trade some stats for a chance to win a Superbowl....Cam has the type talent he could take us there if he develops.

As the Bucs coach said when watching the redzone tape of Carolina....it is near impossible to stop Newton from getting in. They don't say that about many RBs when QBs hand it off......I don't think either mind as long as they are part of the offense.

that said, I think both RBs realize that in this system....both being on the roster is not vital for success here.

Cause if there's one thing we know about DWill and JStew, it's that they HATE sharing touches to improve the team.

DeAngelo got $43 million and isn't being ground into a pulp. Stewart will get his, and considering DeAngelo called Cam the team's best playmaker and neither RB has ever made a peep (and are now being utilized more) I think they'll be fine.

I'm not talking about Redzone, just the 1 yard touchdowns. In the redzone, say outside the 5, Cam's talents should be utilized to the full extent and give the defense more things to worry about.

It's usually a reward for RBs to get those easy ones, but not on this team. I think it sends a little bit of a bad message to them and could come back to bite us with an aging Williams and a Stewart in his prime looking for a little more respect.

I'm glad Newton is getting the job done, but I cant help but think that at least on a few of those occasions either in this game or a few back games, that we could have passed on taking the chance of our star QB getting jacked up and let either Williams/Stewart, or someone else take it in.

Actually I wanted to pose this question to Williams during his podcast...however I know he would never answer it.

If I was them I would feel like I need to stop being tackled at the 1.

I'd think none of them give a poo as long as we are winning games.

I'd like to think those stats really only matter to the FF owners, not the players.

As long as we are winning, everyone should have a smile on their face.

You can't compare splitting touches then to splitting them now. They may have split them, but there were 40 to go around, not 20. Also, they got 100% of the goal line touches and probably around 90% of the touches inside the redzone. They were larger than life. They were double trouble. Now, they are nothing to anyone outside Carolina.

    • Is this dude a real life person or an alt of @GOOGLE JIM BOB COOTER that is a living joke exemplifying the white culture thread? 
    • lol no one takes him seriously. He gets a courage award for bringing his hand-me-down  dad-politics into ttb while still asking to himself, "what does ttb mean again?"
    • I'm extremely pumped by this addition. It has to be the biggest addition since the team came back to Charlotte. I was too young to follow the original talented Hornets (Im sad), so I'm not going back that far. People and fans can say what they want about D12, but the man still have a lot left in his tank. And, Im tired of hearing how he doesnt fit in today's game anymore. There are only a handfull of big men today that I can really say, can shoot the ball: Davis, Towns, Embiid, Cousins and Aldridge.  Howard can still dominate! That's all that matters. The only neg I will give Howard is that I do see a lack of desire/effort to play at times. But, I believe MJ can help motivate him back to being a dominant big man again for next two years here.  Dwight Howard averaged a double-double last season: 13.5 ppg, 12.7 rpg, 1.2 bpg, and 1.4 apg.  D12 had "53", I said FIFTY-THREE double doubles last season. He had six games where he averaged 20 rebounds or more.  Guess who was the last Bobcats/Hornets era to even come close to that number.....Emeka Okafor in 2004 as a rookie with 47 double doubles (35.6 MPG). Then Big Al had 42 in 2013 (35.0 MPG). Howard did that while averaging 29.7 min per game. If you count out his 2014 season where he only played in 41 games, last season was the LEAST amount of minutes played per game in Howard's career.  Only three guys (Towns, Whiteside and Gobert) averaged more double doubles than Howard in 2016. And only four other guys ( Whiteside, Drummond, DJordan and Gobert) averaged more RPG than Howard last season. Other than Towns, none of those guys mentioned above can really shoot the ball any better than Howard. But, teams still want them on their teams for big contracts.    D12 will be a beast this upcoming season!
