I'm going to have to see this scheme with Stewart in it a little more before I agree with this point. I believe if anything, having both Williams and Stew in there makes the play go. (Not a great example, the but the most success we've seen with this type offense was with them against the Bucs last year) So if Williams were injured, I believe the read option would struggle as you say when we didn't have Stew in there. Ultimately, from what I've seen, I have to say this play is best used sparingly.

Yet let me ask you this question. If Andrew Luck was our QB, would we still see the read option for 50% of our plays?


We avg 200 yard rushing and 30 pts this year with Stewart. We had one of the greatest rushing attacks in league history last year with Stewart getting more reps.....there is more evidence of it working well than just that Tampa game.

Deangelo added in makes the attack all time level great....with just Stewart it would be a les flashy steady machine.

Andrew Luck is big and athletic.....he isn't a comparable runner to Cam bc of a 40 time. Luck also has a fantastic short game in regards to accuracy....and Cam's short game is his legs. Color has nothing to so with it.....skill set does.

I guess you guys just close your eyes on the Williams runs, and td out of the zone read.

I don't know how else you can even begin to claim Williams doesn't work in the zone read.

Stewart is a more punishing runner, in turn breaking more tackles.

Doesn't mean Williams isn't good in the zone read.


You are failing to see the point. It is about the threat posed.

Williams' strength is getting to the outside....not breaking a tackle and gaining yards. He can make a team pay with a big hole like the one he was given....

Ron Rivera and even backed the point I have been saying since the offseason. Stewart's inside THREAT is what opens it all up to steadily work.

Williams needs a hole inside....Stewart doesn't. Teams don't respect the inside read without Stewart and simply pass rush which clogs Cams and Williams outside lanes.

It isn't about if Williams has ever had a successful run. About it consistantly working over the course of a game. You need the inside threat.....

If the oline blocks.consistently, it doesn't matter.

Blocking is unique for be read option vs say a traditional run play called.

more about Cam making calls based on how a defensive line is playing a particular down....with Stewart out they don't respect an inside read. Which limits his opportunities as a runner and the passing opening up......and makes pass blocking tougher out of the formation
