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
