Mike Tolbert has three TDs. DeAngelo Williams is going off. All in a day's work for New Orleans D.
Mike Tolbert has been a touchdown machine on Sunday with three TDs to go with 15 rushing yards on seven carries.
The three scores bring him to seven TDs on the season and he entered the day with 158 rushing yards.
Tolbert has been the goal-line back for the Panthers with Jonathan Stewart coming back and he's been about what they bargained for as they pulled him away from San Diego. He won't really have much fantasy value next year, even though DeAngelo Williams could be on the way out.
Speaking of DeAngelo, he's exploding on the scene in New Orleans. D-Will has 191 yards and two scores. The Panthers have an interesting decision to make on Williams with signing Stewart to a big deal in the offseason. Plus, they've also become a pass-first offense with new personnel and Cam Newton becoming a better passer than advertised in his second season with the team.
Cam Newton also took a beating today andhere's a picture of one of the hits.
