That doesnt make any sense.....We just signed the best fullback in the game and we have Kleinsasser who is the 2nd best.

I think this is BS.

I don't know what to make of this yet also. KFFL is usually quite reputable.

I'll keep my ear to the ground.

Sounds good :)

It's hard to get good viking news here (Illinois) when all the idiots are yapping about the bears winning it all most of the time :roll: (With their leauge-easiest schedule)

Dont we have Joey GoodSpeed? who is a decent fullback? Man this WCO sure needs a lot of Fullbacks. Some teams don ever carry a fullback on their roster. We got 3 for sure and the "sasser"

maybe we should use or 1st rd pick to draft a fullback. just to make sure we have that position locked up....

Or maybe a long snapper if we are going that route.

No doubt Childress has a Jones about fullbacks. I've been having a hard time with this for some time. Its one thing to start featuring a fullback more, but how many do you really need? I think we have more fullbacks now than receivers. Even if their practice squad guys, spots are still limited.

Could it be that Owens might be trained at playing Full-Back so, when the regular season comes around, he can play BOTH Full-Back and Tight-End? If he's trying to keep his place on the squad then versatility might play a big role in that..

What do we plan on doing?

Richardson, Goodspeed, Owens and Kleinny

All fullbacks unless you consider Jimbo a TE

Kliensasser is & has been a tightend. :wink:

He's probally being moved around to see what he can all do. Being able to play more then one spot is a huge advantage for the guy, to try an make himself a spot on the team.

Remember it is still only April. Many months to come before we know how the lineup looks.

Do FB's have a place in MN?

It was mostly for Marrdro's benefit. Bringing up some of this regime's history with fullbacks as he continues his discussion on whether or not the FB has a place anymore.

Isn't there a yutz on here who keeps saying the FB is a dead position?

It doesn't matter what FB they have back there. None of you will be happy with him. ;)

I was happy with Richardson.

Scratch that, I was thrilled with Richardson.

I'd be happy with anybody who can put forth an effort and actually block effectively. I don't care if its the wrong guy, just hit SOMEBODY.
