We need to keep only one back and ride them for most of the game. Have Tolbert be the backup but we cannot keep all 3, nor does it make sense to.

Honestly get rid of tolbert. and get a real FB. J stew and D lo has been our backs dlo speed back and jstew power back. Tolbert is a beast no doubt but he is older and on the downside of his career.

DWill better then Stew? Lol?

I know he's been running harder recently but really? This is like all the "Bring Rivera back" reactions we've had on the forums recently because we've finally won 2 in a row. Watching DWill run the ball earlier this year was absolutely cringe worthy at times. I mean, Deangelo is not bad by any means but he's NOT a better overall back then Stewart.

The only reason I'd even consider taking Deangelo over Stew is because Stew seems to be more injury prone.

You'd have to have a considerably better fullback in mind, which you don't, that's even remotely possible to obtain for me to even begin to take that post seriously.

I love Tolbert and I think he fits our offense perfectly.

deangelo was held back in my opinion to keep him from receiving those perks and bonuses after he hits certain milestones.

People are going to skewer me for it probably - but if I had my choice we keep a restructured DWill and Tolbert with Stewart as the odd man out.

I feel like a backfield with Tolbert / DWill is more dynamic and can break a game open more quickly. Plus Stewart, for all his undeniable toughness, seems to have a lot of trouble with his wheels. He's younger but I think DWill can be more productive for a longer period...especially with his relatively low mileage b/c of splitting carries.


Since when is Stewart injury prone?

As soon as we go back to a more conventional running game, Deangelo looks like his old self again. I think as long as Chud leaves he will restructure. If he was playing for Denver, Houston or Washington right now he would be All Pro again. I still don't know why Rivera/Chud changed from our zone blocking scheme to begin with. The one thing we could do was run the ball. When Mike Tomlin went to Pittsburgh he didn't change them from a 3-4 to his 4-3 defense because that was there strength. That's coaching intelligence vs coaching arrogance. Thank you Chud

Oops, Yes this. I'm dumb.

For some reason seeing him questionable for games so often this season made me think otherwise I guess. Didn't realize he's only missed 2 games before this year.
