Dwill loves to have fun and be funny with the fans. Been that way for years. But...this year he gets crucified? You guys slay me. Too fugging funny how everyone is so up in arms. Blow the team up, rebuild, cut this guy or that guy, we are doomed. All you all should sit down, take a nice relaxing dump. Then come back and reread this thread.

If you read this thread and didn't laugh. You need a vacation.

Yea, that's funny as hell. Dwill and Stew are the damn reasons why we're in this crap hole.


Blame their agents.

Their agents did their job. They aren't to blame

When Deangelo signed his contract it was a typical contract for a good RB both in base and guarantee. He hasn't produced the yards that we would have liked but that happens. Look at Ray Rice is is making millions more.

 

Williams would have gotten it elsewhere if we didn't pay him.

 

Blaming him for anything is silly.

You blame a FO for paying and handicapping our team with 2 featured RBs. In a world where most teams have none and at most one.

And Williams' contract was notably bigger than Rice's. Baltimore paid one RB.... and paid him less than Williams

He will have plenty of time to enjoy his favorite hobby (hunting)......in a year or two.I like him as a personality and seems like a good guy,but he has to know that when we can cut him to fix the cap without taking a big hit,we will.

I don't think anyone expects Williams to agree to a paycut. However, don't take a shot at the roster knowing it is because of you being ridiculously overpaid that is hurting us in bringing in better players. If you have an issue with it, take a paycut. I don't expect him to because I wouldn't take one either in his shoes, but I also wouldn't take shots at the roster either.


If your boss at work offered you a huge raise would you say "no better not, don't want to make more than other guys in the workplace."

Blame the boss, not the employee

williams's contract was anything but typical. EVERYONE knew that. a part time running back who was paid top 5 featured back money?!

it temporarily rewrote the payscale for nfl running backs.

DWill is my favorite offensive player left on the team (out of all 10 of them).

 

He always impresses me. I never understand why he doesn't get the ball more. Best athlete on the team still. Some of his runs are just gorgeous.

No it did not rewrite anything. $18-36M guaranteed was expected for a top tier RB. Williams got $21M. He was only part time because we had 2 feature backs.

I am not at all calling DeAngelo Williams a bad guy or anything like that for not taking a paycut.  I don't blame him for not doing it.  I wouldn't do it either.  What I wouldn't do, however, is take a shot at the current roster.

 

My point is merely that when you are a part of the reason why we are struggling to bring in new talent and aren't worth what you are being paid, then don't take a shot at the roster because if it is that big of a deal to you, then take a paycut.  It is like Jimmy Graham asking to be paid a truckload of money and then taking to Twitter to complain about the Saints releasing key guys.  Like, what the heck are they supposed to do?

That is all I am saying.  I am not blaming DeAngelo Williams.  I do blame Hurney for all of this.  But if Williams has an issue with our roster, then he could help by taking a paycut considering he is obviously not worth what he is being paid and allowing us to acquire more talent.  Otherwise, whining on Twitter about it is a bit obnoxious and that is all Williams seems to do nowadays.

Im ok with Smith leaving for all reason talked to death here but if you don't think I would trade Smith's release for Stew and Williams in a nanosecond you'd be crazy
