Salary Cap

I'd rather have neither than both.

We have to start correcting our mess. Name 3 teams in the NFL whose top 2 RBs produced less rushing offense in the NFL.

Would you want Andre Johnson and Calvin Johnson on the same team if they were only allowed on the field together for 2 snaps a game? Or would you rather have Megatron and use Andre's cash to get another player that can play every down with Megatron.

I would rather have a coach that knows how to run the damn ball but I guess you would like cam to run 70% of the load.

I only remember one year and Stewart was on injured reserve too if you remember correctly, that year goodson came in an got the offense going with his 3 consecutive 100 yard games because both were injured the deangelo came back and got his 100 yard games. So I think you are mistaken.

it seems we both were mistaken.. Stewart came back to take over duties from Goodson.. DWill may have only been on IR once..

before this year Stewart only missed 2 games since 2008.. DWill much more, but it seems Stewart caught up with him towards the end of this season dealing with that high ankle sprain.. Which was more of a freak accident.

Since Hurney jammed us up with DWill's contract, we'll see how it turns out.. I would have no problem had we let Williams go in favor of a Stewart/Tolbert backfield though.

I'm trying to figure when has Stewart carried the load for an entire season or even 3/4 of a season?

plus you are mistaken, Williams came back that year and assumed the role of lead back.

DWill has been on IR twice, Stewart 0.

Um, we have 2 first round RBs....no RB had carried the load.

Williams IR in 09 and 10. Stewart has never been on IR

Thinking back, you are right Stewart did take over.

We have this conversation every year.

Every year we wind up ok.

I don't see this season as an exception.

ok? we are ok? in the last four years we have established ourselves as one of the worst nfl teams. we rank with in the area of jacksonville, buffalo, oakland, browns and the rams.

I thought I remembered that right.. No way I'd trust DWill over Stewart..

So this means we can't trade Beason to the Raiders for a third?

Looks like they could use him. Just sayin...

Don't jump the gun cowboy, Stewart first time seeing a preseason game was last year meaning he stays hurt during the off-season and is protected because he doesn't get the bulk of the snaps.

he has a bad toe and the first chance he got to prove himself didn't go well since running on a bad toe causes you to run awkwardly. Just saying.

I have to say you sound like you're jumping the gun a bit.. since preseason games don't really prove anything, and he's been stellar every year except this year (for obvious Chud reasons)... While DWill struggled most of last year..

You can't really point to Stewart not being able to handle the load since he has effectively done so every time DWill has went on IR.. and you can't say DWill is a better option since he gets hurt so often.

What we can do is speculate, and feel free to do that as much as you wish. I'm just sayin I would feel fairly confident had we let DWill walk and let Stew/Tolbert run the show and save us money to spend elsewhere..

here's whats ging to happen, expect Gross, Williams and Beason to restructure, probably with more guaranteed money but spread out further.

This isn't the first time that somethings like this has happened, I think the 3rd year before we lost Peppers we restructured his deal to save us $11m n that years cap in exchanged for guaranteeing more money in the long run, expect more of the same this offseason.

That btw was also the same restructure that made him super expensive to use the franchise tag on
