Barner is one of these guy's replacements. Either Stew or D Will are gone after this year.

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.

Read J.Jones tweet....says Stew is still far away from seeing the field so what him and Person are saying don't mesh.We need to carry on like he won't be game ready this season. He may be one tweak away from
calling 2013 a wash.


Meh, as long as he's ready for November, I don't care if he takes another week or two to heal.

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







backyard games are so fun!!


You are devoid of an imagination then.

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

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.

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.

I love folks on here talking about how good we will be when Stewart comes back assuming he will be an upgrade. He hasn't touched a football since January and is nowhere close at this point. If there wasn't hope he might be able to play if we need him in case Williams gets hurt he would be on IR already.
Instead of always ripping Williams we should count our lucky stars he is durable. Both Barner and Stewart who were supposed to be the future have been huge disappointments so far. Stewart more so than Barner.

Hard to call Barner a huge disappointment. He is a rookie drafted late (a VERY talented one) who is getting over a foot injury....and looks to be back and getting ready for this Sunday.

We have played 3 games.....too short of a window to call Barner a disappointment or this spin that Williams is suddenly the 2008 stud.

Dwill has cost us a game this season, I agree.    Since then,  he has since basically vowed to hold onto the ball like his life depended on it..   I'm not saying he is perfect in that regard,  because he isn't.  I just trust him more moving forward.

 

My fear is,  Barner having a game costing fumble,  before he focuses extra hard on holding onto the ball.

 

Stewart..  I trust Stewart,  the lack of reps scares the bejesus out of me though.    I would bring him in extra slowly.

Williams' best ball security was when he was young.....it was freaky.

Barner has never had much of an issue with ba security outside of a as a return man.....and most returners have issues (89 did as a pro bowl returner).

Barner is too explosive and diverse to let him sit out of fear of a fumble problem he has never had. He probably just needs mental reps more than anything.....as RR said he needs to make sure he remembers all the checks and audibles

In the past 19 games Williams has had 2 game losing fumbles.....so sitting Barner out of fear of that shouldn't happen when we already have that element going on.

We will see....I personally think it will take Barner until about week 8 to find his groove and nitch....and then I think people will LOVE him
