    Re: Vikings signed a Fullback today .....

    He probably would be a back up player for Jimmy or whoever we put at fullback if he makes the final roster.

    I think it's a smart and most likely, cheap pick up. We need help with blocking and opening holes for the RBs. I like it.

    In all fairness, the other thread is about someone named Godspeed.

    Yours is about Goodspeed, the guy we signed. :grin:

    good pickup!..it allows kleinsasser to play more TE where he can be more effective in the passing game and outside running game
    People who see life as anything more than pure entertainment are missing the point.

    Looks like BJ ball to me - dip & dunk ala Tampa Bay. Man, if thats the case, we are just a few linebackers, SS, & Olineman away.
    You make it sound easy, which it's not. A lot of teams will be looking to sign those players also. Speedy linebackers are a must for the Tampa 2.

    Throw into the mix the RB situation, the task of resigning some of our FA's (K-Rob in particular due to his KO return abilities & no one else we have did well in that department), signing a FG kicker/kickoff specialist (Edinger is a FA) & signing a back up QB for Brad if DC is not good to go. (Shaun Hill is a FA & will be looking for a starting role elsewhere)

    I would guess this man is second string and will have to work hard to even set foot on the field.

    There are actually very few two TE base formations in most WCO.

    Most common is a 2 wideout set with 1 Tight end and both a half back and a fullback in the backfield.

    If you wanted to lineup another TE you would have to sacrifice one of your RB's and most of the time the FB is sacrificed because in the WCO the drops are so short you would rather have the better hands of the HB and the speed.

    I imagine you will be seeing a lot of HB + FB sets with only one tight end, in fact I would be very surprised if you ever see two TE's in out new offense.

    That says to me one of two things:
    A)Kliensasser is gone
    B)The new guy was signed for depth because we are losing a good run blocker in Moe Williams.



    Pro Set actually rarely has 2TE's as well. The only one I can think of is Pro-Set Power where you only have 1 wideout.
