It certainly can work that way.....that is exactly what Nnamdi is being told in Philly.
Williams is good....overrated though. Not worth his check here. Most of that isn't his fault but still a reality.
A solid S > Williams for example....when looking at the overall good of the team. Makes the collective team better. That S doesn't have to be better than him in a vacuum.
Solid S plays every snap at a huge weakness. Williams carries can be split and taken by VERY good runners.
It pains me that you misunderstand my posts as much as you do.
1st) Nnamdi does not equal Williams
2nd) Williams contract is an albatross, one that can be remedied with a RESTRUCTURING of his current deal.
3rd) safety is a hole in our secondary, however, corner will be a larger one after the impending gamble cap casualty
4th) deangelo Williams production can not be argued, the kid is a baller and a pro bowler. His numbers took a hit with the infamous chud option. Guess what? We won't be seeing that much anymore.
If Dwill was a middling player on a loaded team not in cap hell, I would agree that he should tear up his contract or walk. Fact is,he isn't a middling player, we aren't a loaded team, we are in cap hell, and we need every able bodied talent we can dress on Sunday. If this were madden I would trade him for 2 first rounders and Ed reed, and solve both our issues, sadly it's not. Deangelo will play ball so to speak, our cap will be helped and one of our strongest positions will remain strong, all the while still being able to acquire other pieces to make a contender.
