Won't matter who's playing RB if our OL can't open up any holes. Feel better about the left side though


Tolbert can at least grind out some positive yards...may be unimpressive but that is better than negative runs

I feel D-Will is going to have a breakout year this year.

 

I have said that the past 2.....so its worth nothing.....but, alas, I believe it to be true again.

You don't tend to breakout 5 years after your breakout year...

Has there even been an update on Tolbert's health? I thought he has missed a significant amount of camp and practice. Is he good to go for week one?

Tolbert claims he can play...RR says they are being cautious...

Based on how they looked last year....and based on what Shula has done in the past. I am hoping our power run game is Tolbert (Alstot approach)....

His final season stat sheet hasn't looked that bad....but I just don't think he is that effective in our new O.

I know it isn't the gospel but there is a reason why PFF will study both seasons and Williams grades out negative and Stewart positive in both 2011 and 2012 despite the end of the year stat sheet saying the same.

He seems to go nowhere to often. The big runs even out his stats but it is all the stalled drives and runs to nowhere that hurt us moving

 

I agree in that he's not a great fit for a read option-heavy attack. But if we are going back to a more traditional offense with a read-option wrinkle thrown in now and again (I think we will run read-option at least once on every drive btw, just not every single snap of every drive), I think he can succeed again. DeAngelo's clearly a better downhill runner even though people think he's the kind of guy that dances/bounces outside.

We were only heavily read option in 4 of the 32. Four games in 2012 can't be why they grade him negative in both years and Stewart positive.

Tolbert can fill Stewart's role. He did last year toward the end of the year. He catches well, pass protects well and is a good power runner at the goalline and short yardage. That is basically what we use Stewart as. I think having one less RB to divvy up carries which could actually help Dwill and Tolbert get in rhythm better, IF our oline can actually make some holes. I HOPE we see a lot of Screens, bootlegs, designed rollouts, nohuddle  to put the defense on their heels. Deangelo in space or with a cutback lane is dangerous. I think we should use him like Green Bay used to use Ahman Green, not run him into a wall of defenders.

Person speculating...

'Nuff said

 

Hence the title.

 

I dislike threads where someone says "the Panthers are going to do (this)" when in reality it's only someone's speculation about what they might do.

DeAngelo being used as a feature back when Stew is out?

In other news, the Pope is Catholic.

He should be the feature back with stew out.

Once Tolbert is back healthy, ya sprinkle in a bit of the bowling ball.

(and to be clear, Stewart coming back this season is not something I'm taking as a given) :(

 

You shouldn't even take it as a possibility.

I would like to see Tolbert get the first carries during the game to soften up the defense...he is good catcher from the backfield and usually gets positive yards after contact.... We need a RB who can get 3-4 YPC  consistently  that can give rhythm to the offense......   having 2nd & 6  instead of  2nd & 11 is going to make the game more manageable for Cam.
