    Roster Full Of Options At Fullback

    It’s the fullback (FB) position and the Vikings have a healthy competition for that spot on the roster. While in some respects the FB is a dying position on NFL rosters, the Vikings plan to carry a FB, or at least carry a player who can fulfill the role of a FB.

    “The fullback position in our league has almost been eliminated,” Vikings Head Coach Leslie Frazier explained on Monday after practice. “There are some teams that don’t even carry a fullback anymore. But there’s a place for a fullback in our offense and we just have to identify the right guy.”

    So who is the right guy?

    Nice read, agree there is a need in the game for a FB but right now I'm not loving D'Imperio.

    Poor Tahi.

    I kindof think that Toby is the new Tahi. For some reason everyone wants to lump Toby in as a 3rd down back and cause he isn't fiting into that mold they are hacking on him. Doesn't matter that he was never brought in to be a 3rd down back. He was brought in to be AD's backup.

    Tahi was brought in to be a no necked knee bender. Everyone wanted him to be some sort of offensive threat. When he didn't fit into that mold they all started hating on him.

    Watch, whatever FB they plug in (if the even do), people will hack on him because he isn't doing what they want him to do regardless of what the scheme calls for.

    He was less of a blocker than he was an offensive weapon.

    Watch #44. Imagine what he could have done for Peterson if Arian Foster was making play like that.

    So who is the right guy?

    The right guy WAS Tony Richardson...........too bad they screwed that up.
    But seriously, my opinion is that they use Kleinsasser as both TE and FB.


    Personally, I don't think there is intelligent life on other planets. Why should other planets be any different from this one?
