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

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



Annual playoff team?

Yes, I would like one of those very much.

I'm absolutely fine with J-stew's contract, however I've never been a fan of d-will's.

I don't care about the financial stuff because it isn't my job to worry about that. I'm just happy that we resigned him. He's a great guy and a great player.

Kurb and I both want a team that is built to win consistently in the NFL.

We do not believe that Marty is building this team to do that.

We now have a QB that can make WR's better than they really are for the first time, and we need to invest some money in some very important positions. Such as CB, DT, DE, and OT possibly.

Yes, it seems that we will be able to run the ball, but what if we can't get off the field on 3rd down? What if we can't stop anyone in the pass game. That leads to about an 8-8 team, and another year down the drain.

We have not built this team the way the Colts did with Manning, we are going crazy at the RB and LB positions.

Saints* won the SB when they finally had a good D.

Brady won his titles when he had a good D.

Manning 1 won his only title when he had a good D.

Giants won their titles with great D play in the post season.

Packers won their last one with a good D.

None of them were crushing people with their ground games like we seem to want to do.

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.


You can't blame our lack of winning on our run game over the past few years. Particularly before last year, that is the only part of our offense that has worked. And the money we have spent on the running game has not stopped us from spending on other parts of the team. What we spent on Johnson and Gamble is more than we spent on Double Trouble, Cam, and Tolbert.

Preparing for Kurb bitching ;)

Keep your strengths strong.


...and your weaknesses weak.

Yeah, bc no one outside of Carolina has ever questioned this madness....

I would suspect there are things you don't agree with as well....next time I see you making any comment that isn't positive about something or someone...I will then pick a random team and suggest you follow them from now on. Cool?
