No need to explain further. Anyone that changes teams because of their uniform cannot be taken seriously.

Although I have no doubt we have a few of those types on here based on the popularity of uniform threads.

Haha, It wasnt like that exactly. He was a Cowboys fan when he was a kid. I have heard there is kinda an unspoken rule where you can change teams once after you grow up. Any more than that, you becaome a fair weather fan. He started following them shortly after they drafted Sapp (96 or so) and eventually around the time they changed uni's he just made them his main team. He actually likes the nasty creamsicle uni's best.

I'm sorry, but you put DWill and JStew on another team with the right system and yes, they are both top 10... easily...

JStew is consistently seen as the hardest RB in the league to bring down, and he combines that power with exceptional speed and balance...

DWill has a great blend of speed and elusiveness and hits most holes at the perfect moment...

Both are receiving threats out of the backfield...

Not only do we have the benefit of having both of them locked up for years, but we also have a top 5 QB, one of the greatest WRs in the history of the game, an awesome TE, and a great OL... There is no reason the Panthers can't have the top offense in the league...

Back on the topic of JStew... he and Smitty have probably the sickest stiff arms I have ever seen... and I'm not being a homer...

I thought DeAngelo was pretty overrated last year. Him and Stew both got high YPCs but to me it was clear Stewart was helping the team 100x more. Seemed like DeAngelo killed so many drives last season with a ton of 0-2 yard runs. Not really all his fault and idk if there are even stats to back me up on that but I really think he was kind of a drivekiller. his ability to break out for big plays every once in a while inflated his YPC. I like Stewarts consistency more because it keeps drives alive

without his big plays, williams averaged 3.3 ypc last season.

stewart, 4.4.

I am going to say this..... With the exception of maybe 4 or 5 teams in the NFL, most teams would jump at the chance to get Either one of these two players. Stewart may be one of the best power backs in the NFL. His stiff arms are becoming legendary. D'Will his the hole quickly and I love his 2nd gear... To top it all off. They have the low mileage but the experience of 5+ seasons? Anyone that thinks they are average backs, don't know football. Unless D'Will runs backwards, He will be the second back in NFL history to average over 5 ypc in his 1st 1000 carries. Jim Brown being the other. NOT Barry Sanders, Emmitt Smith or Earl Campbell... that is not your Average back. Jonathan Stewart with 4.8 could make it there will under 800 carries. I guess 4.8 is average.
