I think we all should just let this play out before we panic. Who knows what the FO is thinking.

Only difference is that trio in SD was all significantly younger


That's just plain wrong. LT was the same age then as Deangelo is now. Michael Turner was older then than Stewart is now.

Also, Stewart is the easier RB to trade. Newton would be easy to trade. Stewart is easier to trade bc he not only is the best RB for other teams but us as well

Pretending? Pretending is trying to compare DeAngelo and Tolbert in 2012 to the SD RBs back in the early 2000s.

DeAngelo will be 29 this year and if we add Tolbert he would be the 3rd best RB in this scheme. I get why Hurney did what he sis at the time despite disagreeing with it....hindsight however shows that DeAngelo is the Panther that Carolina should just admit is the one who should be the odd man out. I don't know how is contract was done....but if they can cut him and find some positive in that....that is the move if we part with Double Trouble.

It won't happen

No, he is easier to trade bc he's in the last year of his contract

And re: Williams not being as good in this system: he averaged 5.4 fuging yards per carry and had more TDs than Stewart.

Don't let your emotions blind you to facts.

I don't think Tolbert wants 3rd running back money. He already turned down San Diego because they didn't offer him enough.

I'm starting to get really worried about Stewart. I just don't understand trading your best running back. I knew Dwill's contract was going to come back and bite us in the ass. Now we're gonna get stuck with an overpaid wash-up with a year or two left in his career and replace our best running back with a discount FA scrub. I really hope this doesn't happen.

Not disputing the fact that he still put up good numbers. But he is not as good in this system as Stewart because Stewart can block much better in the pass heavy offense. Can't just look at one dimension of the RB.

Not as good ad Stewart. That is why Chud gave Stewart the most snaps.

And don't forget many of those long runs that boosted Williams ypc came with Newton AND Stewart on the field sucking in attention.

LT was 24 when he last played with Turner. LT at that time was in the middle of a career someone projected would make him the greatest RB of all time.

That guy.....is not comparable to a 29 year old DeAngelo.


Turner went to the Falcons in 2008. LT was born in 1979. Re-evaluate your math.

Well that and Chud was in Cleveland when they did their best work together.

Williams averaged over 2 more carries per game than stewart and at their rate per game that equates to about 25% more carries.

I don't understand getting the number 1 quarterback in the draft, then one season into our quarterback's career, trading the better receiving and pass blocking running back. Don't we want to be a passing team? I don't understand this.

But I bet J Stew saw more snaps. They aren't just in there for running plays.
