Fullbacks are badass. Fun to watch them just smash people. I was disappointed that we got rid of Jed.

I too love seeing a FB score or make a big catch on 3d down by catching the D off guard.
I would much rather keep one of our promising young DBs this year though.
The writer was correct that they drop like flies.
Especially for the Saints the last few years.

Well I know from being a RB that there were many occasions when I was in the lone back field or split out that and broke off a nice run that if there was one more damn blocker leading me through the whole to lay out a safety I would would have several more TDs that I did.

FBs worked well for us when we could get ball carriers beyond the front line.
They worked well when the FB could just take 1 LB out of the play.
They worked well when arm tackles were useless against the likes of Duece.
They worked well when we had a PT who could convert a screen with the best of them.
Of late, it kind of seems like a waste.
Payton started using TEs as the blocking back and decoys at the goal line.
Johnson blocks and catches the ball well.
I think he will stay around.

Johnson is injured.
Kuhn was signed.
Johnson is history.
I liked him too but he is history.

Dont think Johnson and Kuhn should both be on the roster
