Stewart the new featured RB

C'mon bro... Think... At his age, compared to his actual # of carries ( very low when compared to other RB's his age)... He is better than a spring chicken... His legs are fresh as hell... No worries about DeAngelo on my end

Father time is still Father Time.....people keep pimping his carries and overlook had 2 to 3 times the touches entering the NFL as a majority of RBs.

Williams contract was always dumb....a thank you for what he did. Teams don't pay aging runners with young horses in the stable....and Stewart is ready to explode. Williams already peaked.

I don't think D-Will suck, I just think his running style is more dependent upon the O-Line than Stew's is.

7/29/2011: Signed a five-year, $43 million contract. The deal contains $21 million guaranteed, including a $16 million signing bonus and $5 million of Williams' second-year base salary.

2012: $5.25 million

2013: $4.75 million

2014: $5.75 million

2015: $6.75 million

2016: Free Agent

Some of you cap-knowledeable guys can figure this out better than I, but this contract doesn't look to me like Williams is going anywhere until after the 2013 season...

This should have happened at least two years ago if not three.

I'm sure that it's clear to everyone that our problem is coaching. With Cam at the helm, D Will, J Stew and Tolbert in the backfield, theres no way we shouldn't be able to run the ball. In our 1st year with Chud as the OC, I made a thread about us needing another OC to run GL plays, now it's looking like we just need another OC or at least for the one we have to wake the Heck up and create consistant gameplans to the benefit of personnel we have. If it works, use it...If it don't, throw it away

Hooplah would be going back to last year's scheme, bringing in a second tight end, our decimated OL being able to run block and dumping the read option to the level of last year or less. If Chud and Rivera can't figure that out, fire them both after the Bears game. Tolbert for Shockey was a huge bonehead move. I have the feeling Rivera was behind that one though. Think about it. Did Hurney pick up these ex Chargers without Rivera's input ? Rivera obviously had influence on Hurney based on some of our pickups. All the AFC West players, Campbell, Nannee, R Edwards etc.

By the way, this is not a defending Hurney message.

I hate to say it b/c D-Will has been my favorite Player over the years, but things are finally catching up to him. I really hate to say it, but his time here is pretty much up. Running backs only last so long. He would be decent tradebait right now before he gets too old (by running back standards) and would make a good RB for a team that is desperately in need of his services.

This is why I don't ever want him to go... If he ever plays for another team, he will surely go the fug off. I want our team to get off of this BS they have been trying to run and give the damn ball to our RB's... Wanna see a cellar team at 1-5 turn out to have a winning record. Feed our RB's!

To be honest though, he deserves it. Let him go somewhere where he can put up good numbers and be effective. It's not happening here.

It sucks. If only we could get back to the running style we used to have instead of the Option bullshit Chudderplefouque runs.

Sigh.

Everyone would be happy..and Double Trouble would still dance on the sideline.

Chud and the playcalling is the problem. Cam CAN be the traditional QB, we have seen him make every throw. We need to stop looking like a College team every Sunday. But, I'm just beating a dead horse now. I just can't believe I see the SAME FAILURE week after week..

I hope we get a stud of a GM. We NEED it.

Fwiw, Stewart didn't exactly tear it up against Dallas even if he was the feature back. Neither one is going do anything until we figure out how to make the run game more effective.

With the current scheme and o-line this this may be better news for D-Will than Stewart but you never know. I hope our line and Chud prove us wrong, get their heads out of their collective as$es and maybe Stew can get some serious action going toward the end of the year. I'm just looking for any positives at this point beside Kuechly and Alexander on this mother flippin team.
