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?
Pete Prisco weighs in on Stews signing.
