RR has stated several times that DT wasn't a priority and by his actions, he believes that to be the case.

CB- we just drafted, Norman this year and Hogan, last year( basically a rookie) then we have Cap and Butler. Our #2 and our nickback will come from this group.

S- They brought in Smith and Nakamura to compete for the job and drafted Campbell for added depth.

DE- behind CJ and Hardy you got Alexander who we just drafted, Tucker FA, you also have Applewhite and Kaiser for extra depth (left a few off).

So again WHO and WHAT positions?

Lol you just brought up a bunch of unproven guys to justify spending a huge chunk of cash to keep someone so he can split time at one position with two other guys that can start.

we made the right move by keeping him. knock on wood - the durability to this point of Stewart, but I don't think the FO believes he can carry the load for an entire season. All of his 4 previous seasons, he has had to miss training camp time and practices throughout regular seasons for nagging injuries - which also suggests he probably plays thru pain every year. Couple that with a rookie QB, RB's are their best friends. They have good chemistry together, and the right move was made.

The point wasn't whether these were proven guys but whether we had depth at a number of positions. Also most times injuries at running back are more common than at cornerback, for example, necessitating the need for greater depth with the capacity to start at that position.

Running back is not a priority position anymore. You don't need 3 starters to be successful, and we've accomplished nothing with double trouble sharing handoffs.

I brought up a bunch of guys that we've drafted and brought in through FA...the guys that we are going with. That's what this organization does. Build through the draft and bring in mid level FAs... so if youre waiting on them to spend that money on top level FAs, don't hold your breath.

Yea our current strategy seems to be working so far with our inability to stop the pass since 2006 and no playoff wins in 6 seasons

Voted yes, bc I think he's done. Durable running backs are a thing of the past. Find a new one who can play 3 years and move on. J-Stew will bridge the gap nicely.

Yea, and just who was our Franchise QB through those years? Saying we are a losing Franchise lately is true, but blaming it on having two quality RBs is just silly.

We have been in rebuilding mode basically since Jake left. Do you think it is a coinky dinky that our ills started when our QB fell apart? No Franchise QB=hard to win consistently.

Every year you get better. But you can build all you want. Until you have a Franchise QB you will struggle.

We basically paid for DWill's last remaining years as a good RB. I'll take that, the guy is and will be a play maker, not for that amount of money, but w/e.

Honestly no. Dwill is still a big part of this offense. Until he proves he can't handle the rushing job anymore as a starter. Dwill will stay in Carolina.

The running game is clearly not the reason we have struggled as of late. It has been the passing game and a struggling defense that have been the issue. Frankly the running game is one of the only really brigjt spots. Saying the running game hasn't done anything puts that post in the running for ignorant post of the day.
