He needs a good Online. But who doesnt


Stu, he had the best yards after contact in the league in 2012.

1000 yards for a back that gets every non garbage time carry is not that great.

But the problem is not what stu or deangelo are doing our not doing. The problem is that we could afford two all pro guards plus two decent backs for what they are being payed.

With all the carriers he had in college. I think D-Will needed a 2 back system to be as effective was this long.

I was recently looking at his stats and i noticed that if he was the feature back and we had no one behind him he would have eclipsed 1000 yards every year he's been a panther. I think the view of him would be completly different if stew had never been in the picture.

I wil say NO because Stew hardly gets on the field. I thinks it has more to do with the Oline and limited Wr threat on the outside. Dwill to me is an above average RB, i don't think he will fair better playing for the Seahawks or Minnesota

I'll just say this much DeAngelo's never run for 1000 yards without Stewart for at least most of a season so it's not Stewart's fault he can't find consistency and who gives a poo anyway he plays like the least important position on the field

Good point but I think you also have to take in account the o-line and the lack of threats at WR. When opposing teams are able to stack the box and your line isn't that great, it makes it hard for any RB. I also think that D Will have been a solid rb for us the last few years. I could careless how much he gets paid, more power to him. I still think splitting time with other backs can help with prolonging careers.

That 2008 season d-will had was still one of the best seasons ever for a runningback imo. 1500 yards with 18 tds and a 5.5 ypc while splitting carries is unheard of

Deangelo should have been the starter day one when we drafted him. Yes I do believe he would be viewed in a much higher regard. Deangelo's skillset is pretty unique compared to the rest of the league. However he probably would have been burnt out by now and cut already.

if you look at each of the NFC South's career rushing leader, D-Will is just 5 yards from being #1

6627 DeAngelo Williams 2006-current

unfortunately, poor pass protection is what kept williams from supplanting foster from day one. he even admitted to such.
