Great move!

....but ESPN says its a passing league....as if running will hurt a team now...

Having a loaded backfield is not a weakness or a hinderence for a team...with defenses really moving toward nickle coverages and hybrid safties/corners, a run game becomes an advantage.

Smaller guys on defense for coverage = weaker run stopppers

a balanced attack is what the Panthers are doing with some read/ spread concepts...set the trend.

Eli Manning, Rodgers, Stafford, Brady all had no running game last year.

All of them either passed or came close to passing 5000 yards.

And three of them didn't win the Super Bowl.

The 49ers had a fantastic running game and they were a special teams mistake away from making it to the Super Bowl.

If the Texans had a healthy Matt Schaub and Andre Johnson, they probably would have been Super Bowl Favorites

When the Vikes had Brett Favre and Adrian Peterson they were a play away from going to the Super Bowl.

The Panthers made it to the Super Bowl with a running game of Stephen Davis and DeShaun Foster.

I will take a good running game and a good passing game over a one-dimensional offense any day because more than likely that multi-functional offense will always have the edge over a one dimensional offense.

Look at who wants to come to the party 45 mins late.

So much for the Panthers not being able to sign both Stewart and Williams. Stewart gets a five-year extension through 2017.

oh no we're investing in running backs in a "passing league." what ever will we do against all of those defenses that are designed to stop the pass in such a league?

(we're probably going to run all over them and pass over the top)

This is what I have been thinking ever since the Stewart signing. The NFL is historically very cyclical.

For the past 10+ years, teams have been gearing more and more on the passing game. This means smaller, quicker defenders with a focus on coverage/pass rush skills.

A team built for power running should be able to bulldoze these smaller defenders. Today's NFL defenses will have to cheat WAY up to have a chance at containing our ground game.

And when they do, Cam will kill them over the top with our ACO vertical passing game.

If every team in the league is trying to do one thing, do the opposite. See: The Greatest Show on Turf...

90 million into RB's my ass, half of that is guaranteed... and dwill has pretty much already got his

Since it has become a passing league , a strong running game could become a new trend since the defenses are geared to stop the pass. Also, Tolbert is not a 3rd running back in the traditional sense. He is a replacement for Shockey per Rivera. He can block, catch the ball and, bonus, he can play red zone offense and RUN (Shockey not) or catch the ball for a TD. What if Stew or DWill get injured ? Considering our defense, running the ball helps Cam and, hopefully, keeps the defense off the field more. I bet the Chargers are pooing on themselves since the Ryan Mathews injury this week and they have nothing behind him.
