DWill has .1 (thats POINT 1) less yards per carry than Peterson. Peterson has only had 2 years over 5 yards a carry while Williams has had 4 years over 5 yards a carry. Williams has around 600 less career carries than Peterson even though he has been in the league 1 year longer. Remember Fox had Williams behind Foster for 2 years. Also Chud hasn't used the run that much the past 2 years. The article has a point. If Williams didn't have those 4 wasted years due to coaching and coordinators, he could be right up there with Peterson.


So where is the Jamal Charles fan article talking about how Peterson and Williams both suck

Dwill splits carries because Hurney is/was ignnorant and used our first round pick 2 times in a 3 year period on the Running Back position.
Just another reason why we have deficencies in so many areas.

That being said Dwill has averaged 4.9 YPC over 1200 attempts in his career.
AP has averaged 5.0 YPC over 1700 attempts in his career. So AP is about 3.6 inches per rush better than DWill.
I can see the writers point in this article, it's a good one.

I said the year that Dwill had 1500 yards that he likes like the best back in football...but he dropped off. Whether that was bc of lack of reps and lack of rhythm..who knows? But he's the one who signed the contract. I'm sure someone woulda paid him a little less for a few years of lead back duty. Hurney screwed that situation up badly..that's all I know for sure.

I really hope we keep him, rather than Beason or whoever else we would trade instead, but if we dont, I hope he goes to a team where he has the most potential and tears it up

He's a significantly better back than Stewart IMO. I hate the idea of trading 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. 3.3 yards per carry, 2 rush TDs, 458 rushing yards.....that was Williams on the year with the Saints not factored in.

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.

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.

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

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.
