Keep Pounding

Jonathan Stewart article on PFT.

I don't see Stew going anywhere when the time is right something will get done. And beside I have a feeling D-Will is going to restructure his contract to keep Stew here since he's gotten the guaranteed money aka signing bonus!

Like I said, they both could've gotten more money elsewhere... you can spin it however you want. If its not a "hometown" discount, then its just a discount....what a big difference.

Tolbert could of gotten more....

It isn't spin....the meaning of a hometown discount means giving your CURRENT team a break not going home.

How could Smitty of gotten more? Did you miss the 2010 season? Probably could of traded him for a 3rd rounder and another team gotten a steal......

Yeah, I seen the 2010 season. I also seen the 2011 season... you know,his last contract year. If he wanted more money, he could've left in FA and he would've gotten it.

I won't speculate about it now, but I do believe that Stewart wants to be here and I believe that the FO wants him here. I hope that all sides can work it out to the benefit of the team and hopefully that benefit is both Stew and D Will remains in the backfield.

You aren't buying it is a passing league and rosters are being built to follow?

Cant have it all. Need a great D to go with Cam.

Cam+ half Double Trouble + Tolbert = easily the potential for the best ground attack in the NFL. What team with THAT is looking to spend dollars an another elite RB with holes all over the roster

no. i know it's happening. i've talked a lot about it in here and bitched about the coaching staff we had that was totally oblivious to it and had dug their heels in the ground totally resistant to change.

i think we need to be looking beyond current trends and i think that is what this team is doing with the cast of players they have. i don't think the key to being the best is trying to copy what everyone else is doing. it's taking what they do and spinning it to something else or doing something different that others will want to copy.

we can have a passing attack that is as good as anyone's with the cast that we have and imo, we do have it. i don't see why we can't keep it. i think it's feasible cap-wise and i don't think that something that will interfere with the progression and improvement in all areas of the game, including defense. i don't think we are all that far away from having a top 10 defense and that is without much more added to the roster than what is already here. i don't think that whatever additions are needed will be hurt by what we do or don't do with williams and stewart.

Cam+ half Double Trouble + Tolbert = easily the potential for the best ground attack in the NFL.

but cam + double trouble + tobert = easily the best ground attack in the NFL. i see no reason to change that grouping if the team can continue to grow and improve without breaking that up. i certainly don't see that being something that holds us back...not even on defense.

All restructuring does is push some of his salary to later years by converting it to a signing bonus and paying it up front. That just increases the amount of the signing bonus money we owe him each year. It can help for a specific year but won't do anything if the cap stays at the current amount for the next several years.

If we wanted to get rid of him we would have traded him by now. Obviously we plan to keep him and have figured out how we are going to sign him. At this point we could simply use the 6 million in cap space we currently have by pushing it to next year.

no way that an organization that prides itself on grooming its own talent, lets go of arguably one of its top five players (and very young at that too)

Very unlikely he will be here next year.

Unless Tolbert turns out to be a fumblepotamus or Dwill drops off a cliff, Stew is pretty much gone.

Not true..he will be here..who wouldnt want to play with cam

30 year old men are slower than 26 year old men. It's just reality. It doesn't matter if you ride bikes, walk around a mall, or play football. Age affects us all and it doesn't care how many touches you get.
