I really hope that we get rid of some of the qb sneaks around the goal-line. Cam excels at getting the yards that he can when running and going down before risking injury from a big hit. That is something you can't do on the goal line. I'd much rather give tolbert the ball let him take those hits than risk Cam getting a concussion, getting a hand stepped on, or worse.

i would say goal line is probably safer, he usually goes over the pile and doesnt give the defense a chance to get a good shot in directly, where as running in the open field or getting sacked could lead to more injuries.  i'd say cam should dive in the endzone anytime we have the ball inside the 2.  and it is so immediate, the defense doesnt really have time to penetrate or shoot gaps or even push our guys back as much.

Honestly, for running plays it should be D-Will, Barn Burner and J-Stew outside the five with a Cam jog here or there. Inside the five, it's Cam and Tolby. That setup makes the most sense. That's not to say Tolby can't run outside the five pretty good too, but he's most effective smashing heads inside the five.

But that game where he basically started at RB last year was BEAST. He was running motherfugers over like they were practice dummys.

With iffy OL play.... Tolbert is a better RB than Williams IMO at this stage.. With good OL play Williams blows Tolbert away.

Williams needs some freaking holes or he just can't do much inside on his own
