    I would be surprised if we went without a fullback, but one interesting thing about using the TE in the FB role is that it helps to hide the offenses intentions. When we put the FB in the game we are going to run the ball the majority of the time. Thus tipping our hand to the defense. If we just use a TE in the FB role then the defense wouldn't know as easily whether we were going to run the ball or pass the ball because our personnel group would be the same.

    I think they cut Barden to keep Doyle. This team will be using the tight ends in blocking a lot and with Doyle's frame and potential for improvement it would be hard to not keep him waiting in the wings in case someone gets hurt *coughs* Walker *coughs*.

    Man, I was so wrong. Seems like Otto and Stingly sticks and Velasco is gone.

    If I were the jags, I would immediately sign rusty, give him a blank playbook, and tell him to start writing.
