DeAngelo is what he is because he has the shared carries with Stewart. He comes in fresh and can bring the big play every down.

Arian Foster is 25. He is what Williams was back in 08. Peaking.

You made the thread title and then explained why they are different in your post so there's not much for me to do here.....

I said one was more powerful while the other is faster, not really a change in running styles.

Foster seems the more complete back when it comes to catching the ball and screens. We have seen what DWill is capable of when he is given a lot of carries. He is one of the best. Was one of the best. Either way, he is one hell of a running back.

I watch both of these guys plays and I see a lot of similarities, DWill is faster and Foster is more physical, but I see a very close resemblance in running style and vision. Could DWill have that kind of production with as many carries as Foster has?



Simply, no. Foster is a better all-around back.

Don't be a dick.


I took it as light humor.

Very different backs. Dwill is smaller, more fluent and avoids contact. I think dwills talents are more desirable and harder to find. Maybe I am a homer but they are both good backs. If Dwill wanted to go to a team where he was featured, he would have and if stewy wants to he will. People should get over it.

I think both of our backs are better than Foster.
