I like to look on the bright side. Stewart is just as good as Williams is now and he can improve. Fox let them split carry's last year and didn't give Williams the bulk like he did Foster. Both our backs are gonna be starts in this league and I hope we can keep both. I think we have the second coming of LT and Turner.

They could be better than LT and Turner.

Sometimes these things work out in your favor, sometimes they don't. I know alot of people wanted to bench DWill in favor of Stewart after the first 4 games in '08. Just sayin...

i don't think anyone was ready to right him off that early in the season.

i'll admit, i was ready to drop him from a few fantasy teams at the bye, but held on because i had a feeling the run game would explode after that. up to the bye, williams wasn't doing much better than stewart. they had the same ypc and stewart had more touchdowns.

people scream about williams being robbed of a pro bowl appearance, but when voting began around mid october, williams had 2 TDs and roughly 350-400 yards.

he started off VERY slow last season.

AK's favorite player is DeAngelo and was from the start. Even though it was pretty obvious he needed a little time to settle in I can't blame AK for wanting him to start from the beginning and holding a grudge that Fox didn't do what he wanted. We all have our opinions of what the team needs to do and are pissed off when that doesn't happen as we think it should, that's just fandom...

While I do think Deangelo needed time to grow he should have had alot more playing time. As a RB Deangelo was better than Foster especially in their last year together. Maybe he shouldn't have started but he could have been used more.

i think foster's last season was the organization's failed attempt at developing a one two punch running game.

not only did they not use williams enough, they tried to use foster as a physical back...something he really wasn't.

nor was he a speed back. He was a mediocre back destined for second string.

Foster was a physical back who ran hard and always tried for extra yards. That was his problem. he would swing around trying to get an extra yard and get popped by a defender right in the ball which he carried like a loaf of bread. He tried to run over folks when he should have gone around or in some cases gone down.
