Anyone can write for yahoo I think....almost has Bleacher Report qualities.

But you can't argue about the opportunity thing. We have a clusterfug of well paid rushers. Pointless

Well yes and no. Just like most media websites, that allow blogging by members, you can tell if it's a legitimate contributor, or just an opinion blog article, by the section and title description of the article.

For the record, this is a "yahoo contributor network" article, which IS their version of some random guy writing an article.

remember that whole 5.0ypc after 1000 carries record held by jim brown and recently matched by deangelo williams?

jamaal charles can average 2.1 ypc over the next 216 rushing attempts and still match it.

Which again supports that if you support Williams with that logic.....you then have to support Charles pooing all over him

He is significantly better healthy than an injured Stewart.

too much stock being put into 1 last game against the worst defense in NFL history.

I take back my saying he's significantly better. They're both awesome. I just mean, given the choice between one or the other, as good as Stewart is, I'd pick Dwill. But given the choice between Dwill and keeping both of them? Keep double trouble!!

Keeping Double Trouble intact has been a huge mistake....

Also, this isn't about how careers matchup....Williams is 30 and Stewart 26 next year

The difference being of course AP and Dwill have done it. AP with twice the carries and Dwill with about 50% more. Charles has to stay healthy another year.

The kid is a dynamo and hopefully he continues to kick butt, except where the Panthers are involved of course.

...and Charles is at 5.8 per carry

If there is anyone ignorant in this thread it is you. Your argument citing Charles holds no water and its like comparing apples and oranges. You're only citing YPC to try to make the other arguement look stupid when it's only you that looks just that. It's not only YPC but also carries. Charles has about 500 yards less carries than Williams. About 1,000 less than AP. The arguement is that if Williams started his first 2 years and if Chud used the run more, that would definately make up for the about 600 less carries than AP and with Williams showing a consistent 5 ypc over his career, he could very well be in the same class as AP.

I think the biggest mistake the Panthers could make is moving forward thinking Stewart will be the feature back in a Dwill free BofA.

93 carries this year and he cant get on the field, year after year he's had feet and ankle problems. The best arguement to keep Stewart as the primary back is he has more guaranteed money on his contract than DWill does. MOney we'll have to eat one way or another. Hurney has really screwed us, all we can do is try and make the best of it.

from sheer trade value perspective, its a good thing DeA got to run so much the last few games. now if there is some wizard that can cast a spell on a team to eat those dollars, well...

Running Backs in the NFL simply dont carry the value Hurney put on the position.

Wow, we have two RBs that rushed for 1100 yards!

Oh, we finished 8-8 (2009)

You seem to be selectively applying if player X had more carries over his career his ypc would be the same......then trashing that formula when applied to another RB looking forward (who simply will easily join that Jim Brown stat Williams just did but with a better ypc pending he doesn't receive a career ending injury ).

Williams doesn't have the skill set Peterson does...that is what matters in this conversation. That is what separates them.

Also, I didn't call anyone ignorant. I disagree with people....but leave the name calling to others.

mmm-hmmm. So comparing Jamaal Charles and Deangelo is apples and oranges because Deangelo has 385 more carries, while Deangelo and Peterson is a valid comparison even though Peterson has 585 more carries?

Why dont we just stop comparing Deangelo to Peterson. AP might be the greatest RB in NFL history, its okay to be worse than him
