Has to be some cap fixing with all of it


I'm sure it is...probably was just getting Stewart and Tolbert how he wants them big picture.

Agreed. The Stew redo may be more complex than we realize. Opition on Tolbert gives a backup plan.

Yep, had to keep Tolbert and that was the only way. Durable and fits the power up the gut running Rivera has preferred to match with Cam.

This means one of three possible things:


-This move is the harbinger flare of the end of the Deangelo Williams era

-Gettleman is just as retarded and incompetent as Marty

-Richardson is indeed calling the shots


Or that it is a big indicator that our offense will feature Csm as a picket passer...even though that would send some if you into a tailspin.

That sounds fun...lets impode our offense and Cam's career.

Cam is a football player...new GM thankfully isn't our HC. Cam and Ron want to win

No. Cam is a franchise QB with a cannon for an arm. Also Gettleman knows that running QB's take a bating and their bodies wear down.

I see him using Cam like Rogers and Roethlesberger. A designed run or two a game...put him out in the edge a few times to either run or pass...and utilize his running also when the pass play breaks down.

Having him run 10 times a game is ridiculous....that is why the avg life of a RB is only about 4 seasons.

I have a feeling your are going to be pusses at this tear's offense.

But, I also may be totally wrong.....neither if us really know what the plan is.

Gettlemen isn't a coach...just like Hurney wasn't.

Rivera doesn't take his gameplan from the GM.

Cam has never been a pure pocket passer in his life....won't be this year. Nothing supports suggesting such a drastic change. Expect around 700 yards and 10 TDs on the ground.

Steve Young ran about 7 times a game at near 40. He didn't have a bad coach...let him be special.

Were you part of that crowd last year claiming he wouldn't run in 2012? How did that work out?

I think the comments by the staff about Cam....comments about keeping DWill....and exercising the option on Tolbert would support that he is likely to be more of a pocket passer to a logical person.

But, you are free to live in your little fantasy world where you think you know more.

I will hang out here in reality where the comments do support it and where I say we will have to wait and see which direction we go....rather than spout off bullshit and try and pass it off as facts.

I think too much is made in Gettlemen's comments....

Suddenly he is the offensive coordinator and DWill is the future again...

Pretty sure they are keeping Tolbert bc he is the best short yardage RB to keep that banging off Cam, best RB out if shotgun sets which Cam does often, and fits the running style Riveta prefers (and gets Williams demoted each year). Not sure how you equate Tolbert means Cam doesn't run....sure didn't mean that this past year.

My guesses are based on fact, history and games. Claiming Cam is going to become a pocket player is fantasy....just like those who claimed such last.

Please tell me where Ron or Shula implied the biggest mismatch runner in the NFL is done running...

You guys do realize that tolberts running style is more like Stewart's hard nose hit the hole bowling ball style. Before we got Tolbert, Stewart was the one getting the majority of the red zone Carries. Both the coach and GM have talked about the need of both the home run threat and power runner.

With Stewart not being able to stay healthy since being drafted, don't be surprised if he is traded on or before the draft.

Also, don't forget that the decision to go with Stewart over Williams was more than likely chuds, with ron taking the media hit for him. now with Shula taking over there is no idea, so we will have to see. Who is the browns RB?
