  • For Giants' Saquon Barkley, Jonathan Stewart bar is Mark Ingram, Alvin Kamara | Top RB duos in NFL

    http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2...rt_river_index

    Excerpt: "When Jonathan Stewart signed with the Giants on the first day of NFL free agency, he immediately vaulted to the top of the running back depth chart.

    He might have stayed there if the Browns selected Saquon Barkley with the No. 1 pick in the NFL Draft.

    But the Browns instead went with quarterback Baker Mayfield, leaving Barkley for the Giants.

    So what was Stewart's reaction to the Giants taking a running back that analysts already are dubbing a potential future Hall of Famer and the best running back prospect in more than 10 years?

    "It's a good pick," Stewart said.

    Was he aware when chose the Giants that they might draft a running back in the first round?

    "Yeah," Stewart said. "Absolutely."

    Stewart, whose 7,318 rushing yards over 10 seasons are the most in Panthers' history, was a man of more words when it came to his scouting report on Barkley.


    "Heís a smart football player: He picks things up very fast," Stewart said. "Heís explosive, and heís really good in his route-running. Thatís one of the things that heís really focused on. And you can see that, for sure."

    Barkley is considered a three-down back because of his ability as a rusher, pass-catcher and pass-blocker, which could mean limited touches for Stewart. The veteran spent most of his career in a two-back rotation with DeAngelo Williams, so a division of labor won't be anything new.

    "Whatever the game plan is for a week going into a game," Stewart said, "youíve got to be prepared for it."

    Stewart is coming off a career-low 3.4 yards per carry and just turned 31. NFL history suggests running backs' production nosedives after age 30.

    "My age says Iím 31," Stewart said, "but really, I feel Iím as productive as if Iím 26, 25. And thatís just as realistic as it gets." Read more...

      False.

      51% of Stewart's carries in 2017 came against 8 men in the box.

      #1 highest rate in the NFL.

          Looks like you're as delusional as Gettlemen.

                The JStew signing is still being completely undervalued by most Giants fans. I'd assume it's because most Giants fans haven't actually sat down and watched a Panthers game, and they're basing their opinions merely on statistics.

                Being from NC, the Panthers are always on TV. If I"m not watching the Giants, I'll typically watch them. A few things I'll mention about JStew:
                1. At 31, he still has plenty of tread on those tires. Most of his career he's been part of a RBBC, typically with 2 other RB's, so his body hasn't taken the beating most 31 year old RB's have.
                2. He's a very good short yardage and goal line RB. Two things we sorely missed since the Jacobs/Bradshaw days.
                3. He's very good in pass protection and catching out of the backfield.
                4. Leader, veteran presence. JStew was a respected teammate in the locker room, never causing issues. Good role model for someone like Barkley. Lunch pail type player.
                If your expectation of the signing is for JStew to come in here and be a 1500 yard back, then you're going to be disappointed. If you want a veteran who can spell Barkley, who can fill the role of the short yardage back, who can protect Eli, and can provide leadership in the locker room, then you should be happy at the end of the season.

                Was a fan of the signing then, still a fan of the signing now.
                NFL Draft (Realistic Hope):

                Rd 1
                Garrett Bolles - OT
                David Njoku - TE
                Zach Cunningham - OLB

                  the question I have is why aren't people talking about Gallmen he came back bigger by 15 20 pounds stronger and supposedly faster he was a tough runner as a rookie think stewart might have short yardage duty he seems to be here to inject some professionalism into that locker room.

                        Gettleman didn't draft Gallman.

                        Has no ties to him.

                        Gallman was a spread RB for McAdoo's scheme.

                          Facts say otherwise. Try again.

                            You will barely see Gallman at all. Gettleman didn't draft him, has zero ties to him.

                            Gettleman is fully invested in Barkley and Stewart. That will be the 1-2 punch.

                              Well if thatís the case, I hope itís based off performance and not just because itís Gettlmans guy. Shurmur is still the coach, he needs to be the one deciding who gets to play.
