I was very suprised how little of the carries he got the rest of the game after that TD.

 

I'm interested in how we split going forward. 

 

Their stats are identical this year and pretty much every year before this.

they are slowly working stewart back into the lead back role.

 

rivera has already stated in the past that he likes stewart as the guy to soften things up and williams as the knock out punch.

Jonathan Stewart played 22 snaps while DeAngelo Williams played 20 in Sunday's win at San Francisco.

Mike Tolbert actually led the backfield with 35 snaps, but did a lot of lead blocking and ended up with just four touches. The base formation work was split relatively evenly between Stewart (13 carries) and Williams (eight), although J-Stew did get the nod while the Panthers were in clock-killing mode. Regardless, this three-headed monster isn't going anywhere, leaving the ceiling on all three players capped. It's a messy situation that's left both Stewart and Williams as weak flex plays.

Of course it makes sense to give Stewart more carries when he is healthy.  He is a lot fresher than DeAngelo who has already rushed 135 times this year.  If we want to have all three of them healthy if we make the  playoffs they all need to be fresh.  No need to burn one guy out unless we have no choice.

Williams is having a great year, and really all three are showing great flashes, this is a good "problem" to have.

Stewart averaged around  3 yards per carry while Williams averaged closer to 6 yards. Sure it was  largely on one carry but lets be honest, that is what Williams does, break the big ones.

I have been impressed with Tolbert this season. I felt that he complimented DeAngelo very well. I mean he committed 1st degree murder on Sunday and got away with it. I always felt that Tolbert and DeAngelo was more than enough.
