    Re: Kleinsasser likely to stay with Vikings

    Fullback is essential. Not only for passing in the flat, but blocking for runs, and the short passing routes allow a FB to release (not get an illegal man down field) and be able to block for a WR.

    FB is one of the most crucial roles on the team. For the run and the pass......

    I have to admit I always liked Jim Kliensasser. He was an awesome Tightend in college and I was pretty psyched about him coming to the Vikings. I think that it is time now for us to go in a different direction. I really don't see the need for him because we run single back sets and the idea of a full back is pretty much non-existent. I think that if we trade him for a fourth to fifth round pick to a team in need of a decent blocking FB/TE it would be better for the Vikings in the long run. I mean cutting 2.9 million dollars off the cap would be good. I will state this from than on out that the Vikings will not see any positive movement until Brad Childress is run out of town.
    YUP I was right, this is the third time you posted this same drivel.
    Look at the bottom quote in my sig line.


    It now applies directly to you.

    I warned everyone earlier I was in meetings all day long and was in a bad mood because of it.
    ;D
    What's Tony Richardson for if the "idea of a full back is pretty much non existant"?
    The Vikings run a lot of sets to include a fullback.
    Go getem Ejmat.
    Cheering you on from the sidelines.
    Lets teach this guy the right way to make a point before we loose him to the dark side.
    ;D
    I'm just curious where he got that stat from?
    Must of been 2005 and before.
    Maybe he missed last year.

    i like the use of a fullback, but the nfl is slowly running them out. same with a blocking TE. some team use it, but teams would rather have one that can catch.
    We're bringing purple back.

    In the WCO, the RB does the catching out of the backfield, but Richardson is a good example of a 'multi-tasking' FB.

    I see:

    FB: Richardson, Dugan (converted from TE last year, and signed a contract extension)
    TE: Shiancoe, Owens, Kleinsausage, {? draft pick? - with good pass receiving skills }

    If Kleinny was cut, they must be able to draft (already have drafted ) a blocking TE.
    When we stop to think about it, most folks behavior isn't perplexing after all !

    Re: Kleinsasser likely to stay with Vikings

    Hell yeah!!
    He only runs people over like a mack truck!

    I for one am glad he's staying!!
    Players who can lay a block like him don't just fall in your lap every year!

    Richardson is key!
    The whole offense struggled {even more} after he went down!

    I think alot of people are underestimating Shank too!
    THe guy has got hands!!
    Control the line, control the time, and give your D a chance to shine!!
