I love D-Will. He'll always be a Panther to me but he's got to take a paycut in order to stay one.

Couldn't possibly disagree with a single thing you said. But, that still doesn't change the circumstances. His contract is holding this team back. Love D-Will for everything that he's put into this organization and community. As fans, he's the kind of guy that we have no choice but to cheer for regardless of how much money he's making. He's a Panther and he loves this team.

You can't defend stupid.  Marty was stupid.  I don't blame DLo, but unless he is stupid too, he has to see this coming.

So much animosity toward D-Will because of his contract. He is a good dude and a good RB.

My feeling on it is, if we can sign an impact player I don't mind cutting him. But we are under the cap right now and there is not any impact FA out there so why make this team worse if we don't have to.

DWill's contract may be on the high side, he certainly has the potential to be worth every penny as he has shown in the past. The zone read offense was a hard adjustment for the backs because they didnt have any downhill speed first of all, and second of all they werent the ones reading the DE to their backside so they never knew if Cam was going to pull it or not. Its hard to get up and run hard when you kinda freeze for the first 2-3 seconds of the play while everyone else's motor is already at 100%.

 

Give it one more year with the shula offense that we saw more of later in the season that made more use of cam under center and less of the zone read. Gettleman has a plan, he seems to always think a few steps ahead.

I love the enthusiasm and loyalty, but I disagree.  He may have a year left in the tank, but historically, the past is not an accurate indicator of future performance when the RB is 30 or more.

 

The issue with DW is not whether he is good for the team locker room, worth the money (he is not-check the stats) or is liked in Memphis; the issue is this--how much would the RB position decline if we used his salary on players at other positions of need (and how would those positions be upgraded)?

 

With the addition of Barner, something has to be done. This is more of a roster spot issue than salary cap.

Yet somehow he continues to be our most and sometimes only productive back

he's finished on IR just as many times as he's rushed for 1000 yards

Please stop making him sound like he's not an injury prone 30+ year old running back we are paying more than 95% of the running backs in the league

Your mentality is why we are always 7-9. But I loooove him and heees so nice.

So the fug what. Grow up and realize this is the NFL and not match.com
