    We need to use a FB more.. We always have Jimmy lined up as a TE and rarley use a FB.. It would help a lil bit in protection and rushing

    We used a fullback during one of our games this year but it was Richard Owens not Jim Kleinsasser.

    Re: Everyone is saying it! Do you agree?

    I think if a FB is good enough at blocking it is worth using an extra roster spot on him. Think of it as a specialist. Sure he plays much less than an average player durting a game, but if he gets the job done it doesn't matter. I think a pure blocking FB would help our offense immensely. When you aren't getting bumps and bruises from blocking as a TE or takcles after a catch, it leaves you fresher and therefore more able to do the job of taking out that key LB and springing the back.

    neal blocks for the best back in the league. matt strong blocks for the leading rusher. if i was a coach, i think i would follow these two and get me a FB to block.

    JK and Owens are fullbacks to block.

    Re: Everyone is saying it! Do you agree?

    havn't seen a true FB since the days of the Chief samoan (can't remember his name) or the "Fridge"

    men of mass that did one thing.. create holes, or barrel through lines for those needed 1 - 3 yards..


    i agree that most of this possition is now in the TE's category. but even then.. have we given up size for sure hands?
