williams will still be the starter

I'm interested to see what they'll do with Mike.

He's hot right now but we have a plethora of options.

Each game presents different issues against each defense.  Who plays the most in the game has to be a function of how each back measures up to each defense and then how they do once the game unfolds.  each back will get his carries.  Then based on how they do, they will more or less carries.  

 

I could see Tolbert and Stewart getting more carries since Williams already has 114 carries and we aren't even halfway through the season..  There is no need to overwork him when we have other options.

this thread is more irritating than anything since there's so much money wasted on people we don't need..

This is all a little presumptuous. Maybe I missed something but Stew isn't on the active roster. Maybe I missed something else but Deangelo hasn't been practicing with a leg injury. We need to let this play out before we even have this discussion.

 

And Stew doesn't deserve criticism from anyone. When he was healthy he busted his ass and ran people over. He literally ended a guys career with his buns of steel. Injuries are part of the position. If you are angry about the money then you should criticize Marty and Jerry.

Doesn't matter who is the starter.

People need to stop acting like hurt princesses.

nothing to play out.   RR is going to bring 28 on the active roster.

 

Williams will be the token starter.

 

We will run a RB committee however, and each week likely a different RB will have the most time on the field

Williams will be the starter and if he is effective will continue to get the lion's share of the carries.  If like last week he isn't as effective as Tolbert, then Tolbert will get more carries.  Stewart will get some as well to see where he is at.  If he comes on and has a good game or if Williams is still favoring his leg, then carries will change.  But Williams is the starter until other players show they deserve the carries more.  

 

 

You never miss a chance to minimize his role or take a shot at DeAngelo as if he did something to you personally.

I didn't minimize anything.  You are trying to find something even when it isn't there.

 

Once everyone is healthy and ready.....there will be no such thing as a "starting" RB in reality.  Just one pegged as it.....and as I said, Williams has earned that.

 

Tolbert has seen more snaps than Williams in half our games almost.  When healthy, we will be a committee.....simple and plain.  Each week will dictate who sees the field most.  That being the case, when we have all 3 there is no starting RB.  It is a committee.

 

 I also doubt Stewart will be worthy of real reps until a few weeks from now.

Wonder what the rb snap count % was when we were 1-3 and then 3-0
