We used to have a guy like that. His name was Mike Karney and he was replaced because he was too one-dimensional.

Go back and watch 2013. We ran better with out a lead blocker/FB.

I really like JC Copeland.He says he likes laying people out more than scoring. With the possibility of a power run game, I like that mentality. If anything,he would be useful giving Brees protection in the backfield.

Copeland would also be nice on 3rd and short or goal line plays.

Well if Grambeaux could actually block once in a while, maybe his pick up is not needed.
