Why don't we ever bring in defensive linemen as blockers?

Its always fun seeing something unusual like that happen, especially if it works. But to be honest the good teams are good at playing pure football without gadgets.


So 85' Bears weren't a good team when they would use the Fridge Perry?

Or what about Vrabel for the Pats in their heyday.

Sure the tricks gave them an extra edge but the bread and butter of why they were good is because they were fundamentally good at playing the game of football.

I'm not saying put one of the Edward's on every down to play FB.

I'm saying instead of running an option play on 3rd/4th and 1, we need to line up in the I with one of the Edward's and just pound that shit in.

Only the best defense in the NFL could stop Ryan Kalil leading the way, with Dwan/Ron Edwards coming from behind and then Jonathan Stewart coming through to gain 1 yard.

Agreed, I'm sick of 3rd and 1=30 yard bomb.

Because Chud refuses to run a power offense?
