View Full Version : So, we're going into the season with ONE, unproven FB?

Usually we carry two FB's.

Does this mean that the FB responsibilities in the offense are being reduced?

Does this mean that Kris Wilson's role will expand and he'll be used as a FB more?

change in the way we run the ball.
Wilson, Dunn, Cruz will try and carry the TRich load.
Props if it works, call me skeptical at this point.

Sounds like reporters question for Solari

I wouldn't be surprised to see a backup lineman in the backfield in goal line situations.

FB only was in for like 40% of plays last year. I do think it will go down from there.

Ronnie Cruz has been doing good so far in camp from what I hear.

Didn't the Chiefs draft a Slaughter, FB out of Auburn this year?

Why yes, they did.


I anxiously await this year's rendition of guntherfan's rejected penthouse letters from training camp.

Cruz is an awesome athlete. He does a good job of blocking, has good strength, and has the quickness of a RB. I'm not worried about him as long as he can stay healthy.

We're currently carrying 2 FB's. The fact that they aren't proven means nothing. Tony Richardson was an udrafted rookie at one time.

Slaughter is gone already, they cut him.

Can you believe Carl passed on that guy?

No apology from Iowanian? No, just a lame twist to your original statement to cover your ass. Weak........very weak. :shake:

If Cruz is half as good as T Rich I'll take it. Replaceing T Rich without missing a beat is a little much to ask for an unproven second year guy. Lets at least wait till we see him in preseason being "the guy" before we throw him to the wolves.

You sound mighty refreshed after that spoon from Liz.

Why in the hell would I apologize for not knowing a player was cut? I made a single error, and you've got a half decade of world class dipshittery.

If anyone should apologize, I'd think it would be you to the world for that Moustache, chachi.

Its obvious that you don't care.....Obvious from your 2 posts and private note on the subject.

Get back to me when I'm the dipshit on my 14th user name.

Considering the extreme amount of thought you put into the topic header and initial post, I can see why you're disheartened by my lack of sincerity.

Was I incorrect about Slaughter? yes. Does that correct the issue of you being a mental wet fart? no.

I'm guessing if Kris Wilson actually shows up beyond training camp this year he'll be used as an H-back. Best case scenario he becomes a Chris Cooley type-guy. If he does then it's a huge bonus in my eyes. I've pretty much given up hope on our two second rounders from that year.

I pretty much give up on our second round pick every year. Last good one was who? Grunny? That was a long time ago.

Kawika Mitchell.

I like the 2nd round pick from this year.
He hasn't proven anything yet, but I think
he'll be a contributor this year and a starter
next.

As for FB...the Chiefs only dress 1 anyway. Everyone indicates that Cruz is doing great. Trich was also an unknown, whom fans said "who the hell is he? whoaaahisme, Kimble Anders and Donell Bennet are gone"

I do think Wilson will be employed more as an Hback...

Kawika Mitchell.
Aww.. you are correct sir. Would like to see him really break out this year, all he has to do is build on what he did last year.

Iowanian
08-02-2006, 11:31 AM
Ironically....MOST of us were calling for Mitchell's head at this time last year. I don't remember anyone thinking he'd do as well last year as he did.

Gunther DID do a good job with him last offseason.


Yes.

Dumbass just repped me a couple days ago with the "return the favor" line.

He clearly doesn't know me if he thinks I'm going to play that juvinile game.

I almost neg repped him for it.

I think we'll be fine with Cruz. We're gonna miss TRich's locker room presence much more than his play on the field. And I think we're gonna get that back from guys like Ty Law. So we just need a FB that can put a shoulder into somebody.

Anyone know anything about J.R. Niklos, second year FB from Western Illinois? Probably just training camp fodder but this guy is huge and could definitely put a shoulder into somebody. Appears to be built more like a DE than FB.

Cruz is gonna hurt people. LB's across the league will be Cruzing for a bruising. The bandwagon forms behind me.

With Ronnie in front, LJ will be Cruzing into the end zone.
