KB returned to practice last week. Stewart is eligible to come off of PUP in two weeks and looks "strong" according to a Joe Person tweet from today.

 

DeAngelo has been a very solid back this year, ranking third in the league in rushing as recently as last week. So my question to you is this: How do we bring both Barner and Stewart into the offense without losing the production we've been getting out of the running game? With Williams doing a nice job so far, do we keep feeding him the rock and bring Stewart and Barner in to spell him only in certain situations? For example, Barner could be an asset in the screen game and a backfield of Stewart, Tolbert, Newton on third or fourth and short is going to convert 9 times out of 10. 

 

I'm excited to get both of these guys out there, but it has to be done right to ensure the running game doesn't drop off.

Just once this season I'd like to see a formation with Cam, Tolbert, DeAngelo, Stewart, Barner and Armond Smith all in the backfield at the same time. It would be insane.

That's a very big wishbone.

A Wildcat-esque formation with 2 TEs (like Olsen and hopefully Williams) could be a frightful sight.

I think the Defense might get the idea we would run the ball with that formation... lol

I would still aim to get Williams 20-25 carries with an aim to get Tolbert and Stewart 5-10 on situational and resting downs. If Williams keeps up his production and doesn't fumble then we could do that all season. 

 

From what people are saying here, Stewart may not be ready until late in the season. If we are out of it for some reason then I don't care as much.

Second time this week a fan has proposed a blatantly illegal formation
