    JimmyK is the obvious choice.
    I didn't understand why, earlier this week, the names floating around were Owens and Dugan.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    I'de have to agree Zeus, JK has spent plenty of time in the past at FB
    and personaly I think he is better suited for FB than TE.....But it is definetly a lose for us losing Richardson.......


    I LOVE THE SMELL OF VICTORY IN THE MORNING AIR.

    Jimmy K should be the best choice as he can slot into the role much easier and allows Wiggy to play as a true TE where he can use his catching ability to better effect. Jimmy is a beast for blocking and will be well suited to take on the FB role.
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    I know that Sauce could probably do it. But I think Dugan is kind of the same type of player. A blocking TE who could end up being a good FB in the future, so if he has done well in practice I say give him a shot at it.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    The difference is that JimmyK has played TE in the NFL already.
    I don't think Dugan really has.

    Jimmy K has always been a FB IMO, moving him to TE was not a good decision.

    I'm all for seeing Jimmy as our new starting FB. Why not. He's played the position before. Plus, I'd like to see him used more in our offense. I've always been a fan of the guy. He would be more than capable.

    And kind of odd that Bevell threw in Wiggins' name as a possible replacement for Richardson at FB. Now that would be an sight.
    Even babies know the difference.

    Agreed.

    I don't think he's ever been suited to play TE, but he's always been able to block with the best of them.

    Each block, is like a maze, full of black rats trapped

    Wiggins is alot of things, including my favorite player, but he is not a FB. Jimmy is not only the obvious choice, hes the only choice for FB.
