    This is a sign of desperation. Bringing a LB converted to FB up from the practice squad is answering what exactly?

    I have less and less confidence in our coaching staff with every passing day.

    It answers the question, "Is Frazier still suffering from CRE?

    The Vikings are the ones that converted him. Making a player something he's not or trying to fix something that isn't broke is a Childress trademark.

    WHY!?

    Jimmy K plays the position more than well enough, D'Imperio does not.

    I just don't understand what Fraizer is thinking here.

    Unless he plans on running a LOT of 3TE, 2RB sets (basically a goal line formation).

    However, on the other hand, it could mean absolutely nothing. Reisner was a bum, and this doesn't necessarily mean D'Imperio will see much, if any playing time.

    I agree. It seems to me any time we need a FB, we can put in JK and get better play than anyone else they have on the roster and since the TE position is the deepest on the team any time we can use one of them to bolster another position it should be a no brainer.

    I think Reisner will be a good tight end eventually.

    I'm not sure what D'Imperio really brings. I guess he's more of a threat to run after a catch out of the backfield than Kleinsasser... but barely.

    Could just be that he had a good week of practice and they wanted to promote him for his efforts or maybe they knew of another team sniffing around and they didnt want to lose him..

    Reisner can still be signed to the PS if/when he clears the waivers.

    Kleinsasser has been blocking is ass off and i don't think they are going to reduce his playing time.

    We need Sauce to help out on the line... our protection is awful.

  10. Although I don't really understand this move either, it is not necessarily one that is a direct result of past performance. Obviously it can't be a real effort to change the offense.
