Jonathan Stewart Signs Five Year (36.5 Million) Contract Extension


Best Answer Kurb, 11 August 2012 - 05:38 PM

I would say I am shocked so many of you fail to see the implications of this waste of money in RunningBacks, then I remember Im the local badguy lately for saying we spend too much on runningbacks and you are all incredible homers. Go to the full post

A year and a half of bitching about William's contract and how we wouldn't be able to sign Stewart.

Then bitching about how we should trade Stewart before we lose him for nothing.

Now bitching that we paid too much to sign him and don't need a running game in a passing league.


Some folks are going to bitch about anything and everything.

I guess I ought to be happy I don't have to live with them and listen to them bitch about everything. Putting up with them here is plenty bad as it is,

Quick....who are the running backs for the patriots?

We just watched a team with modest running backs run all over us.

In today's NFL, a running back is a commodity and it makes no sense to spend guaranteed money on running backs.

You spend money on defensive linemen who can rush the passer. Like the Giants.

Marty Hurney was just on the radio saying it was important to keep key players. What about Julius Peppers?

i stopped reading after "modest running backs"

HELL fuging YES.
I am fairly new here to this particular forum but a Panther fan since the inaugural game in Clemson (I have the fuging pictures and ticket stub to prove it). You mother fugers that have decided to ride both sides of the fence have finally went too far.
I have listened for months about how we should have cut Williams and signed Stewart. Now we have both and options.
Please STFU if your IQ is below 75. This scale involves both civilian and NFL IQ's.
Stewart is family and can run the ball better than you.
And yes I am including ALL of you.
GREAT DAY in Carolina. JStew is ours forever.

Late to the party (had to work).

Maybe they frontloaded DWills contract with the understanding that he'd restructure and free up money for Stewie? And DWill agreed that it made sense.

90 million? That's total, not this year. Even if it was, that's 18 mil a year over 5 years for 3 RBs. Denver paid that for a QB. We'll win more games than Denver this year.

Think you're over estimating the amount of carries Tolbert will get.


Double Trouble last year
66% of our rushing yards
43% of our rushing TDs.

So if our D is weak again, Cam will be in passing formations often. That limits Williams' chances. Tolbert is the ideal RB as a pass protector and screen pass guy....but it also means he will still rushes in that role IMO.

So suggesting Double Trouble this year will be roughly 60% of our ground game isn't far fetched. Cam isn't going to stop running. He was our leading rusher tonight out of starters...just like we saw last preseason and often last year.

I would suggest you need to factor in our D won't allow us to pound RBs. Shotgun means more Cam running and more potential looks for Tolbert

They are both great RBs...but that isn't the end all be all to the conversation people like to spin it as.

What! You mean there's not 10 pages of silly ass gifs up! Has some maturity come to this board? Hoping so, but probably not.

I'm glad we won't lose Stewart but I'm still not a fan of this kind of spending on a concept that has not worked for us to date. Get the team a freaking DT or CB for fugs sake.

Am finding myself wishing that Kurb and CRA would just go ahead and switch to a team like the Saints*/Packers to support. They are obviously the types of teams they wish they had
