Sucks that when talking about DeAngelo we have to listen to a bunch of cap bs, discussions about how he's old, speculation that the team doesn't need him, and how we need to clear his contract money. Dude has been a great team player and hasn't shown the ability drop off and obviously plays his heart out. I choose to let the chips fall where they may, but it would be nice to see him retire a panther with his head held high. Quality player.

 

there is no scenario where that was ever possible..  I'm sure he intends on playing the next 3-4 years, maybe more..  but it was never going to end in Charlotte...

Not really. Poor pass protection and lack of ball security are the two biggest things that keep young backs on the bench.

If you can't protect, you don't play.

 

keep in mind, tolbert and stewart are the main backs used for pass protection.

Just wishful thinking...I'm fully aware of that.

Everyone tends to forget D money had 200+ yards in the final game of the season. The dude can still ball, it won't do us much good to cut him this year anyways so we might as well keep him on our roster.

I like to think positively but

 

worst defense ever.

Against the worst defense in the history of the NFL... in the final game...

Imo we need to keep Williams this last year. The cap penalty won't hurt us by dropping him and you can bet he will play his butt off to show other teams he can still play.

 

End of line.

It pisses me off that Williams is viewed as such a thorn in the teams side.
He has done nothing but produce when given the opportunity and become a leader/team player/fan favorite. All this crap was solely brought on from the albatross contract he signed from dumb ass hurney. You can't blame him for signing something like that but you can blame the craptastic GM who gave it to him.


No one blames Williams. Front office created it all.

Wait... Wait... Wait...

 

Did someone seriously suggest that the Jets would give us Revis for DWill?

 

stfu, that can't be true.

Reality isn't his strongest suit. Actually, sports knowledge isn't his strongest suit, either.

I could be wrong...but I think a lot of his ball security issues were related to fielding kicks which would be a completely seperate issue

I like Tauren Poole and Armond Smith more than I do Kenjon, the guy runs scared.

He hardly has any mileage on those legs since being in the NFL (compared to Michael Turner or other feature backs) age should have nothing to do with it.

 

Its just the fact RB aren't worth poo and we are paying him like hes AP - Getting Barner in the 6th further shows RBs are a dime a dozen, and good ones too

Barner has to get his pass protection up to snuff or he won't see the field. Otherwise he might as well run out there with a sign saying "IT'S A RUN PLAY!"

They may be the better true RBs at this point. But I think Barners ability as a pass catcher/option/STs guy is where his advantage will be.
