    Re: Vikings: Search is on for fullback

    Kleinsasser I think is definitely the way to go at FB.

    Richard Owens, though, is a guy that I would like to see get a little more playing time, whether its at FB or TE. I've enjoyed watching him the last couple of years, and feel like he could make some plays if he was given more opportunities.

    Why do we need one? We weren't utilizing Tony very well before he was hurt.

    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.
    If you're going to send the FB out into a pattern, Wiggins is not a bad call.
    But blocking on Jason Taylor - oh, dear Lord, no!

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    If we are not going to add any more players to the team, Kleinsasser is the best canidate. But, if we are going to sign someone in the draft, draft Brian Leonard!

    He was being utilized exactly the way a FB like Richardson is supposed to be. He was the lead blocker for Taylor and was a good outlet receiver for checkdowns, and I think he has done a pretty good job of both. I'm not sure what you were expecting him to do.

    I really don't get this article, why search for an FB when you have Kleinsasser idling on the sidelines.

    Slow news day, eh?

    This doesn't even seem like it should be debated... I guess I just figured everyone would assume Jimmy took the roll. He is not only a seasoned Viking that can prvide leadership, but also a talented one.

    Yeah, T-Rich is the ideal guy for the job, but injuries happen when you play football.

    I think we're ok in the FB department for now.

    Personally, I don't think Childress was using him enough. The last few games we've seen more of Tony, but I don't think we've seen enough of him blocking out of the backfield and out on patterns. Early on, I barely remember seeing him leading the way for Taylor.

    Jimmy K has always been a FB IMO, moving him to TE was not a good decision.
    He's a hell of a lead blocker
    I've been a Viking fan since I was just out of diapers, hopefully we get Super Bowl win before I go back in 'em.
