Forerunner, I respect you and Kendrick but that just isnt correct. I can't find the stats, but i believe he was averaging 2 or 3 yards a carry for most of that first half. He got better as the game went along. Just like the Seattle game. Very little shotgun handoffs. Either way, he is better and the team is better when one guy is featured. i mean that cant be debated. When #28 got the game to himself against Tampa he struggled. Whenever he comes back Rivera need to pick a guy and move forward. enough with this sharing carries nonsense.
While he was averaging much lower in the first half, you can't deny D-Will was on a mission to prove himself after his poor effort against The Saints. Williams was running harder than he was last week. I saw that right from the get-go. He was motivated. Granted, our O-Line is a big reason why our RBs are appearing substandard but I'm not ready to believe DeAngelo will crush New Orleans if he acquires 20+ carries. It's gonna take more than one game to convince me.
A running back committee works though. Changing the pace keeps opposing defenses on their heels. I blame Shula for some of the bone-headed moves. D-Will, for example, shouldn't be used to run the ball up the middle or in other power-running situations. That's what we got Tolbert and Stewart for (both are averaging 3.0+ yards per carry as opposed to Williams who is averaging 1.7). As great as Shula appears at times, he's not a mad scientist. He needs to give D-Will more opportunities on the outside.
