2008 - Williams had more yards
2009 - Stewart
2010 - Stewart
2011 - Williams
2012 - Williams

Since 2008:

Williams 4566 yards
Stewart 3836 yards

Williams 38 TDs
Stewart 27 TDs

Please explain to me how 2 is greater than 3 in CRA land.

And while you're at it explain how "of" means the same as "have" since you never get that right either.


Poster claimed Williams has outperformed Stewart every year.

I said false, and referenced post 2008 without looking it up bc that claim was such obvious BS.

So that is 2 for Stewart and 2 for Williams thanks to the information you provided post 2008

This is what happens when fans have too much emotional attachment to players, they think they're untouchable. Many of you will learn this offseason, that the NFL is a business.

Because fans know what's right for this team? I'll let the experienced talent evaluator Gettleman decide that.

how much will the team save?

Has nothing to do with the fans.

Moving the goal post I see. You said Stewart performed better most years since 2008. You didn't say post 2008, but either way, you're absolutely wrong.

You said that Steward had more TDs most years since 2008. In fact, Stewart has never had more TDs save 2010, when Deangelo had 1 (in 6 games) and Stewart had 2 (in 14 games).

Stewart has outperformed Williams exactly 1 season since he has been in the league, and that was the year that Williams only played 6 games. Even then, he barely was able to outperform him.

Not to bash on my team's players, but what exactly has Stewart done that makes so many people think he is the better of the two? He has had one good year and I don't think he has ever stayed healthy throughout a full season (even the year he had 1,100 yards I think he missed most if not all of the preseason).

If we traded someone I would trade Stewart because he has probably more value because of his age. RBs are a dime a dozen, we can get an even younger back up to Williams and groom him to take over whenever we part ways with Williams.

Point being, just because Stewart is younger doesn't mean he has to be the answer to who we turn the ball over to.

You are correct, I did say since 2008. However , post 2008 is what I meant to say in that post and was where I was arguing from. 2008 was when Williams peaked and was clearly the best RB. 5 years ago is also too long ago to be relevant when talking RBs.

Stewart had more TDs in 2009 in addition to 2010.

Also, lets not forget.....from 2009-2012. Stats for Williams and Stewart are nearly identical when looking at yards/TDs per touch. Difference? Stewart played a huge chunk HURT.....so a gimpy Stewart in that 4 yr window put up comparable numbers to a healthy Williams per touch (bc Williams went to IR when hurt unlike Stewart who plays through pain better than almost any RB).

I don't see any real financial gain from cutting either.

So am I to assume we're going to cut one just for the sake of cutting?

Bottom line....

There is a reason why Rivera has essentially demoted Williams in 2011 (in snaps) and 2012 (officially)

There is a reason why every outsider who looks at our situation believes Williams likely played his last game here at NO (Everyone from the Observer, yahoo, ESPN)
