He was after week 3.

No, he wasn't the 4th best RB in the NFL

He accumulated the the 4th most rushing yards. All other production disregarded. Other RBs had more overall production....list was longer than 3.

A lot of teams were also getting a lot more out of their collective RBs as well. Which is really what matters .

Williams stat was in large part bc our 2 other RBs were injured. A team like HOU was getting better production from their RBs

Williams has been good. He isn't paid for good.

He certainly was the most improved running back after Chud left. 

 

BTW, I was not shocked at all to see Chud trade his premier running back for a box of chocolates..

Lets see.  Cut Williams who is on track to run for 1400 yards this year and will cost 6 million next year in cap space to keep Stewart who will cost 6 million and can't even stay on the field.  The better question is whether we cut Stewart.  I guess that depends on how much dead cap space he will cost if we cut him since no one would trade for him.

A first round pick is a box of chocolates now? I'm confused about what is good value now. Especially for a running back.

I understand your confusion, let me make my statement more clear for you and those who may be confused like you. 

 

I think a first round pick is like a box of chocolates because you don't know what you are going to get. 

 

You may get a Cam Newton or you could get a Jeff Ota..you just never know..

Yeah, I think Indy got raped on that deal.

 

Richardson has been very ordinary. Getting a first round pick for an average running back in this day and age is extraordinary. Lombardi did good.
