    Kleinsasser as FB

    I know were all upset about our Pro Bowl fullback Tony Richardson leaving our beloved team

    Fortunately, we got Tapeh as a replacement, but why can't we just use Jimmy Carter Kleinsasser as our fullback? Did I miss something here? Isn't he good enough at the FB position?

    If I recall, he played fullback in his first 4 or 5 years in the NFL, and he did do pretty good! (I remember he was the second best fullback in madden 2005 or something)

    So my big question is: why can't Jim "Clank Clank" play FB? It can't be that he's too old, Tony Richardson is 37 years old or something, Jim is "only" 31 years.

    Please, help me to understand!!!!!

    Does it matter were he lines up?

    Truth be told all of the TE's (with the exception of Shank) line up at FB at some time or another during the game.

    Additionally, he is on the field for almost every run last year assisting the OL take on blockers.
    My guess is you will see alot of formations like this....

    Berrian











    OT
    OG
    C
    OG
    OT














    Klieny




    TJ




    Shank
























    Tapeh
























    AD

    Or

    Berrian











    OT
    OG
    C
    OG
    OT












    Rice























    TJ




    Shank
























    Tapeh
























    AD

    Or

    Berrian











    OT
    OG
    C
    OG
    OT

    B-wade











    Rice























    TJ





























    Tapeh
























    AD

    What are we doing in all of them?
    Passing or running?

    I for one would think that both Tapeh and AD will see alot of passes off of playaction fakes in all of these sets.

    jimmy k has good hands and is an awesome blocker. i still dont understand either why we dont put him at FB. He also has the build to be a punishing FB blocking and with the ball.

    He was a decent short yardage runner in his second or third year.
    Denny loved using him that way.

    He is a better blocker on the line than in the bakfield.

    He is not the type of guy you give the ball to unless it is to throw-off the defense.

    1. A classic
    two TE set. We're Running it.
    2. A classic I-Formation. We're Running it.
    3. A classic 3 Wide Set. We're Running it.

    Re: Kleinsasser as FB

    i wouldve liked to just use sauce as the FB, but tapeh does give us some versatility..hes naturally a RB, who happens to be big enough to block..this is good because the guy thats expected to block could get the ball a little more often, which could keep a defense off balance..tapeh might not be the blocker sauce and richardson are, but he can at least handle a couple carries/catches here and there, and do more with the ball after the catch/run
    People who see life as anything more than pure entertainment are missing the point.

    Re: Kleinsasser as FB

    One of the reasons the team gave for not bringing him back was they were planning on using more sets that include both AD and CT in the backfield




    Berrian











    LT
    LG C RG RT

































    TJ



    TE









    Rice





















    CT

    AD





    This is one I would like to see them sneak in a few times next year




    Berrian













    LT LG C RG RT















    Rice
















    TE





    QB



    TE























    CT

    AD


    ;D ;D ;D ;D
