If I were the GM of the Packers or the Steelers with running back issues, I'd be saying 'come on down'
and we will then watch our RB run for a 1000 yard and be in the playoffs
while the stupid coaching staff stays in place.

...oh the injustice.

And how disappointing is it to know he still has plenty of tread left on the tires but we're going to trade him because he doesn't fit in with this stupid ass staff's scheme. Pisses me off when we're basically going to piss away an asset because he doesn't fit the scheme of a staff who won't be here anyway next year.



More like... we are going to try to get something for a guy we dont need and have a better version of in Stewart. Add to that, history tells us time is not on DWills side. Better to move him now while he has SOME value then hang onto him till he has none. Good teams are great at this. We have sucked at this.

But, this is why we've sucked at this.

There were rumors of trades available for him last year. We re-signed him, barely use him, and now will trade him when he still has VERY productive years left.

The teams good at this trade or cut guys when they're done and replace them with comparable talent.

Again, the timing is horrible and the handling of the entire situation has been atrocious. I know he's around 30, and he's a RB, but Ricky Williams split carries for the latter half of his career and was effective up through 34 or 35. DLo has never really been used as a workhorse and has stayed relatively healthy throughout his career. He has good years left. I feel the move is predicated by the storm brewing inside the organization, not because it's a sound football move. We won't get maximum value for him.

I disagree... he's old now... he will be even older after we rebuild again... 3 years... and useless. Time to stockpile picks NOW and make that GM position even more attractive.

We wont get max value for him, true... but that is b/c of the stupid contract he got.

Anyone familiar with the situation in Denver and the probability Fox makes a push for his old back?

Ron rivera has handled ths d-will situations like a bitch...just talk him like a man and tell him you going a different direction..don't let him find how when he only gets 2 carries during the game that's not cool

Ditto. Best RB in Panthers history. He deserves a lot more respect around here.

Should have shipped him to the Patriots a few years ago when they came calling instead of wasting his career on this poo heap of a team.

Who are they contacting?

Marty Hurney was fired... so who the fug are "they" contacting? Certainly you cannot suggest JR himself being involved in this....

"I'll listen to anyone who can draw a better pie chart than me!"


In the post Hurney firing presser, Rivera stated that he would be in charge of player personnel moves moving forward.

I love the guy but its best for the future of this team to move him. To rebuild this team and get things right, it's a no brainer.

If I'm not mistaken, he has yet to play this game. Writing on the wall I believe.
