I'm excited to see Stew back in the mix as others have pointed out he is better at the in between tackle runs not to mention he doesn't typically go down after the first hit. I foresee him softening up the defense and then d lo busting them wide open for the home run. As long as the o line continues to gel and improve throughout the season I see the return of double trouble to be nothing but a good thing for this offense and what we are trying to do which is to dictate the flow of the game and wear the opposing defense's down while demoralizing them. The key here also will be to see barners progress with holding on to the ball and how we utilize him in the ground and air game. Should be exciting and interesting for those of us that appreciate this type of offense.

It's going to be interesting to see what we do at the RB position next season with D Will, J Stew and Barner. Barner, to me is a younger, faster and better catching out of the backfield D Will. We seem to me to be putting ourselves in position to cut or trade D Will and roll with Stew as our starter and Barner as our change of pace back, which I would disagree with. D Will is the type of back that I wouldn't cut. He has a very low fumble rating and is a good all around back. To me, being a good back that doesn't fumble often is the type of back I'd want to keep.

He is expensive and old. He is running well....but that hurts his future odds here

As far as fumbling goes...he isn't the same never fumble guy he was from rookie to peaking 2008 guy. He drops it about in pace with any RB now.

Half of his runs went for fewer than 2.5 yards against the giants.

He doesn't have any burst left, and his total yards are a product not of a high ypc but an unsustainable number of touches.

I'm gonna do a thread about it when I have time but his first three games are gold dust.

I just looked up the top 5 rushers and like 4 of them are on losing teams. The only one who isn't is Demarco Murray, and you know the Cowboys are going to fug up at some point this season and miss the playoffs

Yep, when Barner's toenail grows in and he gets on the field.....people will see burst. Young blood at work.

Williams is running better than last year. He is picking up 2-3 or so consistently instead of going down at the line. Makes a difference vs the guy we saw last year

you could say that about any running back...hell week one AP had 78 yards on one carry and 17 carries for 15 yards the rest of the game and last week vs the jax of all teams lynch had 27 yards on one play and 42 yards on 16 carries for the rest of the game. Dwill may not have father time on his side but he is as effective as any running back in the league right now.

Disagree. He is being used wisely. He isn't as effective as any RB in the league.....which is why other RBs have more than just rush yards. They have rush TDs, they have receiving yards, they have rec TDs.

Williams isn't what he was. They are using him MUCH wiser than Chud did. Which is good
