Bringing Barner and Stewart into the mix

Recommended Posts

I've always wondered why they didn't split halves instead of carries. Have Stew pound them in the first half and have D-lo come in fresh for the second half. It would allow them to get into their rhythm and wear defenses out. Add Barner for change ups and Tolbert for short yardage/fullback/short passes etc..

if someone would bite on it i'd be very ok with trading stew.

 

That contract alone is going to scare away many possible candidates.

 

When you pair that with his injury problems, we're pretty much stuck with him. Unless we just release him.

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.

 

And in a soon-to-be-released Person tweet, he will announce that Stewart will go on IR.  I hope I'm wrong here, but I doubt it.  We heard how good he looked offseason just before we found out he was in pain just walking.  Love JStew, but I'm not convinced we'll see him in uniform this year. At all.

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.

Yea but it will be a penalty because Armond will run out of bounds

If Stewart can stay healthy, Stew and Barner would be a sick combo. But he can't stay healthy and never will stay healthy. Get rid of both the high priced dudes and build a solid line so we can just use a 3rd rounder on a replacement.

Barner is not high priced, unless you are talking about williams?

Haha, although all of the refs have been fugging up that call this year. Those dumbasses apparently don't know that the league dropped the "immediate" part of returning to the field.

Glad we're getting Barner and Stewart back..

I'm a little worried about fumbles from the new guys though. (Stewart is new to the season and has not really had game time in a long time). Dwill has already dropped the rock that cost us game and I fully believe that he will not drop the rock again. I'm not confident that our rookie rb and our rb that just had surgury, will protect the ball like Dwill, as we move forward.

Williams has 2 fumbles in 3 games....

I get your point about lack of recent reps but at the same time Williams has had his issues yet you paint him as Mr. No Fumble while they have been out.

D-Lo has always been better when he gets 18-25 carries a game. Splitting carries does not do D-Lo any favors

Stewart is better when he doesn't spilt. That really holds true for most RBs as they can find a rhythm and get more chances to a actually break one.

I mean Mike Goodson, Nick Goings were at there best when getting 20-25 as well.
