awesome.....

We had the highest paid backfield in the NFL last year and they were one of the least productive. Brilliant!

I look forward to them standing on the sideline watching Cam and very average players thrust into key everydown positions.

Deangelo is the best back on the team. If we cut him this year the cap hit will still equate to us having one of the highest backfields in the NFL.

It is literally cheaper to keep D-will than cut him. 9.6 million immediate cap for cutting him or we can keep him for 8.2 million. Not that hard of a decision.

If we did a June 1st cut and spread the 9.6 over 2 years then we only save 3.4 million this year but carry over dead weight of 4.6 million next year.

Let him play this year and then we can have more flexibility to cut him(immediate savings of 3.8 million in 2014 without doing it as June 1st cut or have even more flexiblity to get him to restrucuture assuming its not done this year.

Good move, keeping D Will is gonna be essential in making the playoffs letting him go will hurt us. The offensive line is a bigger issue. If it doesnt workout this year we will be changing up our RB stable and coaching staff.

Gettleman, Shurmur, and Rivera have all talked about wanting to get rid of the read-option as the primary attack. I'm glad to have D-Will back for probably one last year. He still has it in him to get 100 yard+ games.

If it can work within the cap and not screw is down the road, fine I suppose. Deangelo just needs to get on his horse sooner. He takes so long to get going every season.

I have done a poo ton of research on this cap thing and have been advocating keeping for a long time. Nobody has presented a logical reason(including cap implications) to cut him now. Appearently Gettleman agrees that cutting him now makes no sense what so ever but yet CRA continues his blind hate for D-WIll.

Both it seems. The entire franchise actually. We seem to get that "oh poo it's time to start playing?" moment about week 7.

Judging our backfield purely on last season is idiotic.

Okay, judge it by 2011....or the fact no other team would even think of such.

There aren't the carries to justify it.

Then why is Gettleman keeping him?
