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.

Him or the offensive line?

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?

It has nothing to do with Williams if you actually listen to the argument.

It has to do with a limited amount of rushing attempts available....and the money better suited to go toward a player that plays every down.

Like you said earlier it has to be because of the cap. Im not a cap guy by any means. Cutting him probably doesn't make enough of an impact cap wise at this point. The value of keeping him must outweigh the value of cutting him.

I'm not happy about our expensive backfield and I'm not including Tolbert bc hes not expensive, but I am glad that we're keeping D Will. They're different backs and each appears to be the better back when one is used to his strengths. I hope that our offense will play to both of their strenths when they are in the game.

Maybe bc the mess is too big to solve this year....and lameduck Rivera will be just that.

Or maybe old man Gettleman is stubborn and old school. Maybe he is going to give Rivera the wrong bodies like Hurney did to run a modern scheme with Newton. I think that could be a very realistic view. Force Ron into X....

Tough to argue that over the last 2 years....Williams is an a investment the coaches have wanted.

There are holes all over this roster and yet we are still the only team in the NFL that over invests in a backfield (having Cam just makes it more comical).
