Barner over Williams

Some people on here are either sucking up to Zod/Mods for reputation or are just too afraid to give a common sense opinion bc they're too scare of being banned.

 

I wish any of that were true.

 

Mostly people giving common sense opinions

I think the title to this thread should be "I am frustrated about our offenses performance, mainly the oline, and am overreacting by making DeAngelo Williams the scapegoat."

Williams was middle of the road most of last year....he needs nice holes or he is wildly inconstant.

A lot if it is just bad OL play....but he isn't the RB he was a half decade ago

Take away the Saints game last year and Dwill had a 3.46 yards per carry and 500 yards.

 

He's good 1 out of every 16 games.

 

He's not the sole problem...but he is part of the problem

That statement is a bit silly.

 

Williams isn't being called out for anything (in fact the things said about him are praise for RBs regarding his patience and willingness to wait for something to develop before he hits a hole).  The OL is being called out for being shitty and the question of whether a different back would have more success behind that terrible OL was raised.  Agreeing with that (or not, as is the case amongst quite a few people) is just fine and should be expected as opinions differ from person to person. 

 

Saying that the idea attempts to make DWill the scapegoat is just wildly inaccurate.

The problem is Rivera's inability to utilize the running game. The end.

Not ready to buy that Barner is gonna be better.

The OL issues need fixing. If that doesn't happen, it doesn't matter who's back there.

In all fairness Stewart averaged 3.6 last year. I didn't take out any good games or long runs he had either.

There's the question of whether he even fits what our offense has been doing the last few years.  I don't think he woke up one day and couldn't play football anymore...and he was doing pretty well in yards per carry prior.  It's a possibility that he's just not going to ever fit right with the way the this offense will be run post Fox but we won't know unless they put a decent OL in front of him and try.

I don't see why people are saying that D-Will is "clearly" and "obviously" the better back (in space or otherwise). I guess y'all are giving him a veteran's nod or something.

 

The only thing that he is clearly better at is blocking, which of course is why he is starting right now.
