    That's funny shit there! I agree with Marr, Line is a FB, and could be a damn good one... With receiving and running skills. Practice Squad bound.

    A bit?! What are you talking about? Line looked faster than Toby.

    You forgot about the laceration that required 5 stitches.....

    Being a halfback for the Minnesota Vikings must suck.

    First of all, you'll barely get to see the field as long as Adrian Peterson is healthy. And second, Peterson is one of the fastest running backs in the NFL. He would make almost anyone look slow.

    Toby Gerhart actually has pretty good speed for a running back. He runs the 40 yard dash in the low 4.5's, which is very good for a 230 pounds RB. Toby is big and tall, and he's a long-strider which can give a wrong illusion, next to playing on the same team as Adrian

    Zach Line runs a 4.7 and is smaller than Gerhart (Zach is still considerably bigger than the average NFL RB). Zach reminds me of another Viking: Matt Asiata. He's also a HB/FB tweener who runs a 4.7, and he's a tiny bit smaller than Zach. I don't like to get stuck in the 40 times and I think Asiata is underrated as a halfback.

    Why? He might lack the long-speed, but he's quick. Sure, having a player like Adrian who can make long runs and score many TD's is optimal. But as long as the guys are quick enough to move the chains, like Asiata and Zach Line, they will eventually reach the end-zone. And sometimes break a long run... because not all defensive players are speed-demons either.
