Carolina's running attack is struggling

Many people realized there was a pretty good chance the Panthers would have a tough time passing the ball this season. Matt Moore was inexperienced, and rookie Jimmy Clausen couldn’t be expected to a) win the starting job or b) perform well if for some reason he did have to start a game.

But the running game was supposed to (sort of) make up for it with RBs DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart – both of whom rushed for more than 1,100 yards last year in Carolina.

Williams That hasn’t happened, though. Through the team’s first six games, Stewart has recorded 148 yards (a 3.0 yards per carry average) and one touchdown, while Williams (top mugshot to the right) has gained 361 yards (a 4.1 average) and one score.

So, what’s the problem?

“This game's a lot easier when your opponent's one-dimensional," coach John Fox said, via the Charlotte Observer. "I think to be dual-dimensional's important. Unfortunately, we haven't had a chance to do that.

"We haven't done it effectively enough, yet."

Stewart To make matters worse, Williams’ foot is hurt and he missed practice Wednesday, and Stewart continues to have pain in his left Achilles.

Stewart (bottom mug shot), meanwhile, tries to remain optimistic.

"Instead of building up frustration, you've just got to believe in the guys in front of us that eventually things will start opening up the way they're supposed to," Stewart said. "That's not just the guys up front. That's everybody on the whole entire offense doing their job. It's a collective deal."
