Barner over Williams

178 posts in this topic

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.

I agree with you, but believe that this needs to be directed at people altering Williams stats and comparing him to Jake Delhomme.

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

Just wanted to emphasize the importance of this statistic.

It isn't altering stats pointing out how he did in the 14 games last year that weren't against the worst defense in the history of the game.

What he was able to do....wasn't impressive

Basically, poo flows from the O-line to the backfield. Our backs will never reach their potential with the poo that's in front of them. Our damned O-line is constipated.  The septic system is backed up.

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.

so the only reason DWill is starting over Barner is because he can block better? HA!

He was also hurt all last year....so Williams was about as effective as a hurt RB

I love how nobody has anything to say about this.

I didn't say that. However, if Barner could block better, he'd obviously be on the field more.

He was healthy enough to take the field. I'm sure DeAngelo plays while banged up all the time. Oh nevermind he sucks and is perfectly healthy and sucks. Did I mention he is old and that he sucks.

Did I mention DLo averages one yard per carry on all of his runs that were under three yards every other game and that he sucks.

    • I'd love it if someone could do a compare & contrast post on Corey Davis, Zay Jones, Ross and maybe one or two of the other top WR prospects, ranking them on Speed Route running / separation Hands (catch percentage) Durability Fit in our offense For me, Ross is off my board (at least in the 1st round) due to his knees / injury risk.  Davis seems promising but it's hard for me to imagine DG going with him at #8.  Seems like one of other players we are likely to have ranked higher (Thomas, Adams, Fournette, Howard) might be available at #8.  Barnett & Lattimore might be above Davis on our Board and have a pretty high chance of being there at #8... I don't watch much college football at all. (Have enough trouble watching NFL games here in West Africa)  Don't know enough about Zay Jones and any of the other potential round 2 WR prospects....
    • I think Panthers fans would lose their minds if we took Lattimore. But he would be a stud for sure and pairing him with JB24 would be nice.
