Interesting tidbit on Beason's restructure...FA at end of the Season?

Recommended Posts

Nope. If D-Will can go on IR and continue to have a productive career, then so can J-Stew.

You're clearly delusional (especially if you believe Barner will be our feature back). Cam and Luke were drafted by Hurney too. Long story short: he's not going anywhere. I suggest you move on from assumptions.

Again, I have never used the words Barner and featured RB in the same sentence.

Said after this year, he likely will be ready for legit reps. DG drafted him for a reason....

no GM is Hurney....DG is going to get out of this RB mess as soon as it is doable.

and Gettleman knows it (which is why he named him our starter).

 

When did he do that? Stewart hasn't even put on football pads since we hired Gettleman.

Actually that was mentioned here several months ago. I'd have to do some digging but Stewart was named our starter.

 

what? I have serious doubts he plays much if at all this season. I hope I am wrong.

Bingo, so this absurd theory needs to be put to rest. Barner getting reps is meaningless in reality. He was drafted to be our Scatback. Barner isn't going to replace Stewart or Williams.

Barner was drafted to hopefully be a RB....bc we need to get away from Double Trouble. That starts next year.

Barner getting reps isn't meaningless. If he turns out to be what DG drafted....he becomes a legit part of the RB committee next season and DG starts axing Double Trouble

He's been labeled our scatback by Rivera himself. Don't count on it. There's a reason why Barner made it all the way to the sixth round. I'd let go of those lofty expectations right now.

I have made no lofty statements....only after a NFL season Barner likely will be ready to be part of a RB committee. One ball...too many runners. Old, injured or expensive guys are going to be leaving soon....

we are going to be moving away from Double Trouble most likely starting next year. You need to start working through that....we are going to move away from them for a variety of reasons.

Sorry, but you have no evidence of that. Uttering assumptions and wishing it would happen doesn't equal reality. I suggest you stop predicting because you're not very good at it.

yeah, there is....

 

Look around the NFL and also look at why Hurney was fired.

 

Double Trouble isn't the future.  We have both of them today b/c we got handcuffed to them.  

 

 

 

 

if Stewart limps through this year and Williams looks like he did last year.....it is an easy call.

I've been studying the cap for some time. We may keep deangelo Williams in 2014, but we could save a bit as a June 1 cut. We absolutely will keep j stew in 2014, (cap reasons) but one of them will be gone in 2015. The cap hits are way too much for running backs that year and they're getting old and now have an injury history. We have too much talent with Tolbert, Poole, barner and even smith to be paying two older running backs that kind of money.

This is where I concede. In fact, both J-Stew and D-Will could be released in 2015 (depending if one or both take paycuts, or if D-Will is already released in 2014). That said, Tolbert could be gone by 2015 too.

I really think we need to make Tolbert happy. He's underrated and could have been utilized better the last season. One of the best fullbacks in the league IMO.

Saw this last night, too. 

 

Certainly looks like this is Beason's last season here. I'd be SHOCKED if they offer him another huge contract extension after what just happened with him after signing the last one. 

 

This could be good for us though because Beason is obviously going to be playing to the best of his abilities and could give us a monster season. We all know what he's capable of doing. He's playing for another big contract this year and contract seasons usually yield nice results. 

 

Going to have to defend Marty on this one though - giving a big contract to our best, most productive, and team captain was a no brainer at the time and I would have done the same. The contracts to DW, James Anderson, Delhomme are the one's that fuged us.

Beason's contract was still bad b/c of his health status when he got it....

 

and you can add Big Money, Godfrey, Mare, basically anyone who signed anything post 2010.
