Explain the difference between a fullback and a running back right now.

I will make you look like my little fug buddy if you try to talk football.

Fullbacks are blockers first and runners second.

Jerome Felton & Adrian Peterson are mutually exclusive.

Incredible analysis. I can now put you on ignore with confidence that I will never miss a knowledgable post by you in my entire life.

Go back to playing madden.

Disagree.

Tolbert can be a decent blocker. Alstodt was better.

Mike Alstott was a throwback to Csonka. A horse of a football player.

I dont know if this has been said before, I haven't read through this entire thread. Would you rather have Tolbert or an awesome blocking FB? I lean towards Tolbert. I think he is more useful.

The Golden Calf of Bristol FB conversion

Cam handing off to The Golden Calf of Bristol?

What you don't understand is that aside from Cam, Jimmy, or Derek, no one on the team has any idea how he will be. They don't get coached by him, they don't talk to him. They are as in the dark as the rest of us.

It would be like an employee commenting on the promotion of a manager in another department.

feels pretty short sighted for you to say "the team must make this particular signing based on a team from 15 years ago" and then say that there are only three players that the 2nd in command on offense would've ever interacted with.

and just for the thread in general, Alstott might've been one of the more overrated fullbacks ever. But, if the idea is that they need someone here like that because he was picked during Shula's tenure, then a true blocking FB isn't your guy. Tolbert is.

You could get a guy like Phillip Lutzenkirchen from Auburn in the late rounds who was a helluva tight end but also played fullback (and played it well) in many of Auburn's offensive sets. He got injured in 2012 and had to have surgery to repair a torn labrum and missed half the season and his stock has probably dropped accordingly.

According to a speculative report I read about comp picks, we are supposed to get to at the end of the sixth round (fairly accurate). If So, a player like PL should be there. I wonder, since Barnidge is a free agent, if Rosario (TE from UCLA on PS) might find a role. If so, we may not need another TE.
