Stewart is entering his fifth season, but he has just 13 career starts. He had 761 yards in 2011, but averaged 5.4 per rush in 16 games. He did catch 47 passes out of the backfield.
Combined with Williams, the Panthers do have a nice 1-2 punch.

Nice, if it were 1996.

Aren't the Panthers trying to move away from their reputation of being a run-first team, something former coach John Fox loved?

They could have Jim Brown and O.J. Simpson in their prime in their backfield, but if Newton weren't the star of the offense it wouldn't matter.

The Giants won a Super Bowl and were last in rushing.

The Cardinals went to the Super Bowl in 2008 and they were also last. It was the same for the 2009 Colts.

New England, which lost to the Giants in the Super Bowl last February, was ranked 24th in rushing.

See a pattern? Why pay runners when the running game is being de-emphasized?

Even though i love stew he is right. We should have let dwill walk and signed stew to this same deal. Hindsight is 50 50 though.

...because its a pendulum that won't always swing that way as defenses adjust to it. In fact, this season the run may be more important than ever. No one knows.

Because as defenses de-emphasize defending the run, we'll run it down their throat.

I bet the Pats would have liked to be able to run the ball in the SB last year... LOL

Oh, and Stewart is a significant weapon in our passing game... but I wouldn't expect Prisco to know that.

Why they would have scored more points than with Brady passing?

Kind of unfair to completely ignore the 47 catches for 413 yards last season...His role doubles in the offense. And if this is about paying two running backs. D.Will doesn't have any guarantees after this season, and that deal can be restructured for flexibility. Money isn't an issue.

Offense is about having weapons, why does it matter what kind? Stewart functions as a runner and a pass catcher.

And also, I notice that he didn't included the New Orleans Saints** from 2009 because it doesn't fit his argument. They were 7th in rushing attempts the year they won the super bowl.

I don't see a problem in accumulating as many weapons as possible on offense as long as they can contribute consistently.

The NFL wants big points and doing everything they can to encourage passing....it isn't going to shift back to the way it was.

I expect even more 4k passers and 5k passers going forward. D will never get back what they lost....it will only get worse for those guys.
