Keep Pounding

Jonathan Stewart article on PFT.

Just keep all three (Tolbert, Williams, Stewart) for crying out loud, the NFL is suited better for multi-back systems anyway, especially with all of this talk about concussions and players digressing at the age of 30.

I think releasing DWill is a little excessive. Restructure would be more the norm.

We need to sticky this so people can get off the DWill is too expensive train.

Situation matters in regards to what is expensive.

Williams could easily be the 3rd best option to put on the field at RB.....name a team who owes that kind of guaranteed money to the 3rd best overall option.

Multi back system is about not spending or investing heavily in a backfield.

Passing league. No other team is paying 2 RBs.....and they don't have the added bonus of Cam.

I highly doubt they release Williams, people on this board really underestimate J.R.'s cap management skills. He has a specific gift that allows him to move money around very easily and without a lot of feelings getting hurt.

Regardless of you feel about him personally, he is one of the best owners in the NFL at managing the salary cap.

stewart's smart for not wanting to deal right now.

carolina's already on the hook for a deal equivalent to what they paid williams.

if stewart puts up good numbers this season, he'd be leaving money on the table (with carolina or any other team) by signing an extension right now.

None of the remaining money from D-Will's contract is guaranteed money. Chill. I see a restructure coming.

While seeing Cam run is fun, it's not in the Panthers best interest to see him jumping over pylons for the rest of his career.

Money is slightly tied up right now with the running back situation, but that is something that can be easily fixed by re-structuring a few contracts.

There is a lot that I don't understand about the Huddle. First, we get a post saying Stew wants more than DWill, and that is reading between the lines big time.

Then, we learn that Williams may be our 3rd best option on the field, when in fact, he had equal or better stats than Stewart in nearly every category. Stewart had more receiving yards, but that could easily swing the other way next year, as DWill has historically been viewed as the better receiving back of the two.

Sometimes I feel like I am watching different games than everyone else, and also apparently suffer from poor reading comprehension.
