DeAngelo Williams appreciation thread.

Deangelo is showing how he can play when he is getting featured and can get in a rhythm.

His best year in 2008 was when he was the feature guy and had a complementary guy in Stewart like what Tolbert has been this year

I love me some DWill.  I hope we find a way to keep him next year.  He's not as elusive as he once was but he's still a quality runner when they can get him to the edge.

34 is the man and needs to continue to be the feature back heading into the Playoffs.

Stew may work his way in a bit but I don't want a game plan formed around 28 when he cant stay on the field.

Edge schmedge. His TD run yesterday was straight up the gut. He ran through an arm tackle, then outran everyone else.

Even when he gets some love, it is convoluted.

I'd personally prefer more 5-6 yard carries than 1-2 yard drive killers and an occasional homerun

It's better from a ball control perspective

I don't think many would argue with that.

 

Just pointing out big plays in big games.

I think we all would.  However it seems like there is never any holes to run through.  Even on that long touchdown run if Wharton didn't pull and make an outstanding block then it would have been another 1-3 yard carry.  Our OL is smoke and mirrors.  Our rushing yards per game is smoke and mirrors.  Everyone talks about the Carolina run game but realistically if not for the threat of Cam Newton we would probably have the worst run game in the league.  The reason is our OL is not very good.

Not edge smedge, the OL Is awful and only once in a while gets a decent block up front.  DWill is amazing but the OL is abysmal.

1st play of the game he broke it outside for 7 yards. He is still capable. But he still only gets, what, 12 carries. That just isn't enough touches.

He should get 2-4 screens a game, as well as some plays out of the backfield. He may not be DWill of 08, but he still has packs a punch if used correctly.

Then again, with our Offense not getting 80+ plays. It is difficult at best to get what few actual playmakers we have enough touches.

You stated this. Implying he needs to be an edge rusher to be effective. I pointed out his TD run yesterday was up the gut. He can be effective anywhere. As he is 1 of the few true playmakers we have. He just doesn't get enough touches.

Not going to go that far about our O-line. They are not the best, nor are they the worst. But abysmal is not a word I would use to describe our O-line.
