Bringing Barner and Stewart into the mix

84 posts in this topic

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

only the second?  i'm willing to bet they don't even know why it would be.

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

Not necessarily. Barner, Tolbert and Stewart possess very capable hands. D-Will ain't bad either.

Hell, all of them don't have to be on the field at the same time, for that matter. Tolbert, Stewart and Barner could cause massive mismatches alone.

the defense could line up 4 linemen 4 linebackers and 3 safeties, so no.

Stewart is the better receiver, so I'd like to see more screens to him to get him in the open field.   I'd say use Stew early and often and then use DWill once they are worn out.  We need to use Tolbert a bit more too.  Not sure where Barner fits in.

 

If Stew is healthy he's a better RB than DWill, it's just the fact, but we'll see and I doubt he'll be completely ready so we'll ease him in.

You can put two on the line at TE.

RR isn't sure that Stew will be ready by week seven.Half the season almost gone by then.Don't know if this dude just doesn't heal well or what his story is. When asked about it, either no comment or won't talk about it.I think the three guys you see this week is gonna be it.

I'm really interested to see how they use Barner but I get a feeling it will be sparingly until he proves he can hold onto the football and make the most of his opportunities. I'm wondering if he takes over kick off return duties from Armond Smith or if he gets any sort of significant time as a back this week. Have a feeling he will only see 3-5 snaps on offense as he gets back into game shape, gets healthy, and really learns his role in the offense. Would love to see some read-option with Cam and Barner and I think that would be ideal for Kenjon. We need to find creative ways to get Barner in space to really maximize his potential although I liked that he ran low and downhill for a smaller guy in pre-season. He seems really shifty in tight areas and tends to hide behind offensive linemen and always fall forward.

Why does everyone act like Barner has a fumble issue.

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.

 

Ah the classic sextuple option.
