Stewart is the only true read option RB and definitely the only one built on our team to run it in the NFL. Only was shutdown without him.....that is like running it to an exaggerated degree with DA and wondering why it won't work. Threat changes....defensive line plays the scheme different.
Yeah the Titans were the only game we were shut down in. Yet in four games this year, we were shut down twice running the option. So if this continues, we will be shut down at least 8 games this year. Talk about reverting, and this coaching staff ensuring Cam has a sophmore slump.
You have to have an inside zone read threat which only Stewart brings.
They need to scrap it if Williams is the only RB bc DLs just pass rush....and kill it. The outside runs are the only threat. Sure, Williams can take it up the gut but he is no threat to make a player miss with contact. Rivera backed this up over a week ago when addressing why Stewart was needed back.
Stewart sets Cam up, sets the pass up, sets up the pitch work
