Agreed 100%. Stewart is the stronger of the backs and should get the majority of the goal line carries, but this will still be a RBBC and you'll still see a 50/50 split to start most games and the RB with the hotter hand so to speak will end up with more. Plus, the one thing I noticed was that both Williams and Stewart were fairly equal early on in the game until Stewart broke the one 24 yard run. Now I don't like saying "take that run away" because that just makes no sense, but had Williams gotten the same run, you would have seen him get more carries I think. And also remember that Williams started off this game against a fresh D while Stewart came on later, with fresh legs, as the D had less than fresh legs.
And I own both Williams and Stewart and would love nothing more than for one of them to clearly outshine the other, but while I still think Stewart is the long term better player, I think today was more a matter of circumstance as opposed to Stewart distancing himself from Williams.
