How the hell can anybody come to the conclusion that D Will has fell off when he has barely touched the ball the past 2 seasons? I can understand his contract reason for cutting him but fell off?......No. And you have to be pretty dumb if you think we should put all our chips in Stewart to be a feature RB, the dude has a glass foot. I dont care how many games he has played, you put more on his plate and he gets hurt. To much of a risk, and far as production neither one  of them has done that much or broke apart from one another in that regard so if D Will doesnt deserve his contract Stewart damn sure doesnt deserve his so cut them both when the time is right.

who even cares to argue whether or not he's fallen off I swear to god there is not another fanbase that is as aspergers as this one over this GOTTA HAVE 2 FEATURE BACKS GOTTA HAVE THEM IF YOU DON'T YOU CAN'T COMPETE ONE GETS INJURED YOU HAVE THE OTHER THIS IS WORTH LIKE 20% OF THE CAP mentality

 

The future of this team is in Cam's passing and shutting down QBs like Drew Brees and Eli Manning, not this corny gimmicky fantasy of handing it off 75% of the time and having 8 1,000 yard rushers that has never materialized and in seven seasons has never gotten us even one playoff win. I remember our 2005 playoff run where Foster was basically limping up the middle until he got his ankle shattered in Chicago and we won the game despite having a depleted backfield because Smitty singlehandedly made the passing game explosive as hell and probably had more YAC himself than the receiving core of some entire teams, and we actually played defense at that time.

 

 I'm sick of this positional worship of the running back, this concept that has been put forth to justify starving other, more crucial positions of talent for years that has yielded not one iota of success, and I hate this idea that people are fixated on that we need two franchise backs. We don't. No one did. No team that has won a championship since we drafted them has hedged their bets and put so many chips into the running back position like we have because they don't try to rationalize overpaying for a fan favorite or lowering the bar on 20+ yard runs to subjectively define "explosiveness". What are people afraid of when it comes to cutting Williams, that we're going to be able to spend that money on more important positions and end up winning some games because the talent is going to go where it matters?

Did everyone just overlook this post where he appeared to have successfully made a reply OUTSIDE the quoted box?  So obviously his computer is capable of doing it; but apparently he did it unknowingly?  3rd post down on page 9...
 

 

 

 

the first couple of days of this new forum look I couldnt make a quote outside the box for some reason either - some sort of quirk with the forum and web browser I suspect.

Anyone who does not agree with this guy is a loser.

I don't agree with the loser part, everyone has there opinions but I do agree with the article. However, D Will is going to have to take a pay cut or huge restructure for that to happen.

Fun facts:

 

 

1. Stew runs the 40 faster than D-Will. So that homerun stuff is just a dumb placemarker for an actual argument. Almost as dumb as. . .

 

2. D is a team guy! We shouldn't cut him cause he is a team player. If this were actually true, he would do what actual team players (Jordan Gross) do and take a paycut, and make it easy for both sides. I'm sure he's a wonderful, funny, happy-go-lucky dude, but athletes craft that image of a team guy or whatever you want to call it SPECIFICALLY because it makes it harder on the ownership to cut them rather than overpay them because they then look like the bad guys and have to deal with a bunch of angry iamhubby clones berating them on shitty radio shows.

 

Fun fact:

 

You don't run the 40 in pads.

Honestly Im glad we didn`t move DWill. I cannot see Stewart being able to stay healthy handling most of the carries.

He played the largest % of snaps in the division in 2011.

He has missed legit playing time only in 2012 of his entire RB career. For a RB, in the NFL, that ain't a big deal
