    Other than Lorenzo Neal we have never really had a top notch fullback. QJ is below average at best. As we look for ways to improve the running game should improving the fullback position not be considered?

    Hall was a beast.....I still miss that guy. He was very agile and elusive for a big guy.

    Hall is still an FA. We could have brought him back.

    But he had one too many concussions. Dudes health was at risk. But yea he was good.

    I wonder if Jamie Harper could be converted into a backup FB?

    I once asked myself the same thing. Turns out he's as soft as a teddy bear so no.

    you've seen him run the ball right?

    Well I certainly think we can do a lot better than QJ. Would be nice if fullback was more than an afterthought for this team for a change

    Doesn't Craig Stevens play some fullback for us now?

    I definitely think we should invest in a fullback though, CJ is better with a lead blocker.

    He is. And given how fast CJ is we should probably look at a fast FB so CJ does not end up running past him before he can throw the lead block. Would also be nice to have a guy we can dump off a few passes to and even some short yardage hand offs.
