"Serious" chance D-Will gets traded

139 posts in this topic

Do you expect the coaching staff who is not using him to be around next year?

True that. Trust me I would like to keep our RBs intact. Too good of a trio not to run it down our opponents throat on every snap. Who would've thought we'd miss Foxball?

Evan Silva quoting Adsm Schefter on twitter:

Schefter on DeAngelo Williams: "Could be on the move. #Panthers continue to listen to phone calls. There is interest from other teams."

Also said Dwayne Bowe, Steven Jackson, & The Golden Calf of Bristol not going anywhere.

I still say DW goes to the Packers.

I'm gonna play the guessing game:

D-Will to the Cards

Go talk to the people that watch the tape and then come talk to me. DeAngelo is getting paid WAY too much. Stew is 26 years old. Do the math. The contract is terrible, and he will be moved.

He can obviously still play, but his contract will handcuff the new GM

DeAngelo is getting paid too much... I agree, but that wasn't your initial argument.

Do you have access or know the RB coach personally? I'm curious as to why you think J is the better RB...

Here's what I do know, and not all of it for the sake of time... If I had to compare the two this is what I would say.

JStew- more physical tough back, better pass blocker, I disagree with the notion that he has better hands (but it seems that most really believe this to be true), slower of the two, more injury prone of the two

DeAngelo- more finesse style back, faster, more elusive, and has that "other" gear that Stew lacks.

Here's how I would use them mostly:

Run J in between the tackles, run Williams to the outside... Then towards the end of games, switch it up just when the defense "thinks" they have figured it out. You can use them both n screen plays equally...

The KEY to all of this is to Fuggin utilize what we have!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You can throw all the stats you want to. The only numbers that matter are the contracts and the guys' respective ages. Go ask the folks that get paid to do this stuff for a living. I don't need to argue with you all. What's done will be done.

If that was the case then we wouldnt have so many of these supposed teams inquring about him.

that could be any number of teams looking to do any number of things. not every team places the same value on the position but the teams that are typically viewed as the "good" ones (patriots, giants, steelers, etc.) tend to not go overboard when it comes to paying running backs or investing draft picks in them.

some teams, however, do. see the cleveland browns trading up to the third overall pick in this last draft for trent richardson. outside of that, there were only two other RBs drafted in the first round and they were chosen 31st and 32nd overall. if a team wants to make that move and the price is right then we won't stop them.

Also if Hurney did one thing right, it was structruing the contracts to where we would not be forced to absorb a big cap hit from Stewart and D-will in the same season.

yeah, but having williams' base salary off the books moving forward is still important. we've got aging cornerstones at WR and LT and the middle of the defensive line needs help. odds are we're going to have to look to free agency for at least one of those positions and landing top talent is going to be expensive.

Dude actually LISTEN to what I am saying, because I'm not going over it again. The "utilize what you have" argument goes out the window. HIS CONTRACT IS TOO LARGE. We have too much money invested at the RB position with other holes on this team. What more needs to be said, he can still run, but you go with the younger guy. Thats how this business works.

As far as Stewart vs. Williams, do your own research. Go ask a few folks that get paid to study tape (and not just read off of a stat sheet) and ask them. I'm not argue about this anymore, so take it up with someone else.

At this point if you don't understand why its much better economically for this team to trade D.Will and do it now, then you are lost and will never get it.

One guy on Fox mentioned getting a second for Williams from GB. If they offered that, they can have him in a heartbeat and ill throw in a used copy of Assassin's Creed: Revelations.

Shiiiiiiiit........and they can get Batman: Arkham City Game of the Year Edition from me!!!
