I was happy we got him, and at first when we used him on screens and he wasn't catching the ball I was thinking it was a bad thing... but it's turned around. Like the rest of the team... things are come'n along.

I'm glad we have him. He's kept many drives alive this season now.

He's such a clutch short yardage back.

Also, there aren't many people more fun to watch after the catch/first contact than Tolbert because he makes moves nobody his size should make.

I don't know why people hate on Mike Tolbert. The talent and potential is there.

I definitely don't hate him, he's just not a fullback. I hope the next coach will use him at RB, and bring in a true fullback to open things up for the rushing attack.

Not sure why there were/are doubters on this board. Look at the guy's career stats and you'll see he's been performing at a high level since his rookie year.
In 2010 he had over 700 rushing yards @ 4 YPC and over 200 receiving yards @ 8.6 YPC.
In 2011 he had almost 500 rushing yards @ 4 YPC with 430 receiving yards @ 8 YPC...

So why are people surprised? Dude's a beast and really the only back on the roster the coaching staff seems to know how to use.

They don't use him enough, I'd like to see him more in the red zone

75 percent of users on here think that he is a running back, not a fullback.

He gets involved more than any fullback in the league, but so many people think he is just the slow, third string RB.

Because when it isn't going well the groundlings throw food at everyone.

you're not the only one.....but there are a lot of haters.

I love him because he doesn't go down on first contact like DWill.

Tolbert is what we call a Swiss knife. (jack of all trade)

Seems like after 13 games the staff finally figured out how to use him. Good job.
