    Don't know if this guy is any notable competition for Tahi who most here don't like but he is a Viking.

    Link didn't work for me, but yea read this elsewhere.
    I'm glad they at least brought someone him, just for the fact I don't like saying Tahi has a roster spot locked.

    Nice, I'm a big fan of the FB position... the more the merrier in my opinion (although I think Kleinsasser should be starting at FB).

    A lot of people think that, I don't.
    He could play it at times yes, but I wouldn't want him to start. Keeping Jimmy at TE adds a different element to our running game that otherwise isn't there.
    Dugan is a suitable utility FB, besides, who knows if Kleinsasser can even accelerate fast enough to lead block for our HBs

    Very true. Right after I typed that, I started thinking about his legs and his age.

    Probably best to have him on the line as a run blocking TE. However, I always liked watching him in short yardage situations.

    Same, he's awesome. Thats why I said he would be good as a situational FB.
    Put him in to either fake the hand off to, or give it to him and let him pound it in on the goal line.
    Either way, he loves to knock people over, which is why our double TE wings can be dangerous

    Now we've got our thinking caps on!!
    ;D

    Speaking of FBs, I hope our LBers don't underestimate Quinn Johnson in the Pukers running game!
    Control the line, control the time, and give your D a chance to shine!!

    I still don't know why the Vikes let Richardson go.
    He was really helping AD with the game.
    Sure he was getting along in years, but being smart enough to find the right guy to block is more important then slamming through the hole.
    Plus, Richardson caught 200 pass as a Vike in the 2 years with a > 8 yard avg.
    Tahi averages 2.3, if he caught the ball, which is doubtful.

    EDIT
    That 200 yards!!!! not catches.
    BAD GAGARR!
