There are a lot of fans extremely emotionally attached to Deangelo, apparently.

 

They have Hurney syndrome.

 

There's nothing wrong with being huge fans of players on the Panthers but these guys are the same ones that would still have Delhomme QBing this team

Barner needs to block better.  Cam got flushed out on one play specifically because Barner whiffed on his block.

Your theory is to have a back who's better running behind a poor/terrible online?

My theory: Fix the damn OL.

http://sports.yahoo....ayers/7776/news Says on yahoo Barner has a foot injury. I hope he broke his damn foot. This forum is so worthless the mod is making ridiculous threads about how a worthless rookie should start after three worthless preseason games. He really means it too.

 

oye vey.

DWill/Stew<anybody else.

An argument as old as the chicken vs the egg on the Huddle
Same answer, Hurney stupidity gave DWill a contract any player in the NFL would gladly sign.
The Panthers will continue to try and get some value out of our previously brain dead GM's contracts given to DWill and DStew.
Patience is the only answer until this albatross is raised from the Offenses' backs (pun intended).
Barner is a specialist, and must be put in situations he can succeed in, the rest of the RB corp must do their part.


Scheme, line, etc does dictate which runners can have the most success.

You give a hole (and a FB blocker)....Williams is one of the very best runners in the game.

No blockers, no holes....run him in between the tackles? Williams will look pretty average.....and a true power RB or scat back not relying on blocking can have more success.

If all we have is Williams of Double Trouble....it is pretty pointless to run him with no blocking. For every decent run he will kill 3 drives or put us in a hole

Zod's theory however is more realistic....at the present.

We saw what Williams could do last year with no holes against a good D....get stuffed. Can't have a repeat week 1 of the game last year

Pretty sure inserting Tolbert or Barner into a game is a more realistic fix than hoping an OL falls out of the sky this year

i remember those arguments.

 

"jake needs to go. we need a new QB"

"NO! Jake is the best QB that we've ever had!"

"but he's not getting the job done anymore."

"He took us to the superbowl!"

"but that was 6 years ago and before his arm exploded"

"he's a good guy! he's done a lot for the team! we need to keep him!"

I think a lot of fans forget how important Hoover was in the double trouble glory days.

Yeah, people all the credit to the RBs...

Overlooked we had arguably the best or top 2 lead blocker in Hoov and a good run blocking OL.....

Any other GM or HC trying to win would be smart enough to start looking around for OL help.

Any other GM or HC trying to be dumb would be thinking about starting a back who's 1/10 better than another at running behind a terrible OL.

Rivera isn't a GM....he doesn't get to add who he wants. He barely kept his job.

He can however elect to stop running Williams so much.

No one does.

Many have mentioned Hoover in the past. The thing is there's no need for a traditional blocking FB when we're playing this stupid read option poo where Cam is tying to feel the RBs hands for 3sec.
