Kris Wilson.

Yes.

Since he's been lining up in the backfield we've had a much more potent receiving threat since he's used as a TE/WR/FB. He's being used the way Al always wanted to use him and it's actually working. His two TDs in the past 3 weeks shows that he IS making a difference out there.

Agreed, he has earned my respect & should only get better as time passes. 250pd.'s can block, catch & is fast enough to stretch a D. I'm glad he was able to stick around long enough to prove himself.

This guy is a mismatch for alot of linebackers. He's got receiving skills few fullbacks can match.

Except during the game the announcers called him Chris Johnson at least once. Of course, they also said that we beat the St. Louis Cardinals the week before and referred to the Rams quarterback as Marc Warner.

I was gonna post something like this SUN night. The way we use him puts pressure on defenses because he can get out and stretch the field a little bit and is a fine blocker in the running game and is getting better every game.

I remember some people here in the offseason talking about 3 TE sets with LJ and Priest (or Bennett) in the backfield. You think that would confuse defenses?

Cruz could very well find himself 2nd string next year if they dont move Bigfoot to TE. I like that idea to, i think he's far more versatile & harder to gameplan than a traditional FB type.

I think Wilson still needs to improve as the lead blocker. He is less efficient when he has to lead into the hole. But I do like what he brings to the outside passing game. If he can go through the hole in the middle and get open look out.

I like having Wilson playing the fullback role. I think he is only getting better.

I must be the only one that thinks the running game has gotten better with his "sorry" blocking. Since cruz was out LJ has been putting up 150 + yard games

Iowanian
11-07-2006, 01:26 PM
I think the Oline play is more responsible for the recent success in the running game. Wilson is improving in that aspect, but in a true short yardage situation, I think he's still behind Cruz.

He is doing a good job when they bring him out of the backfield or motion him out, which should continue to give him good matchups, or free up Gonzalez by pulling the safety over....

Its good stuff.

He's already got more TD's than TR had the last 5 years. LJ doesn't nessecarily need a blocking fullback but our QB does. Kris Wilson gives us waaay more versatility than TR ever did. The best thing that's happened to our O this year was Cruz gettin hurt.

You know I remember when we drafted Wilson we envisioned this kind of play. Another variable for defenses to account for. Someone to punish them with when they double-team Tony. Great stuff.

Wilson's lead block and Waters' pull were the two key blocks for LJ's 40+ yard run last Sunday.

I like the H-back role. Mr. Iowanian has it exactly right. Wilson puts palpable pressure on the enemy defense through his ability to motion out of the backfield opening opportunities for both LJ and the pass.

I've noticed that his blocking is good, but not great. But, almost all our blockers are giving up on their blocks a tad too early. On numerous occasions this year, LJ would have broken a long off-tackle or run off the edge had his blockers held their blocks for a split second longer. Herm needs to work on that.

That was my thought line as well, Jordan Black stepping up at left tackle has been huge for us. While Wilson is doing better as a FB then he is at TE, seeing the field during the game alone is an improvement for this guy.

Scroll up on this thread. Someone has LJ's 40 yard run vs. the Rams. Wilson makes the outside block on the corner that springs LJ. That play is blocked perfectly. The hole is exactly where its drawn up on the board.

Those clowns were pretty painful to listen to. A couple of times I thought I could hear them shuffling through the rosters trying to find a name...

Yeah, Wilson's been a nice surprise at FB.

He spends most of his snaps inside as a conventional FB/H-back, but on a few plays he slides way outside(on his TDs) and creates a mismatch with a LB.

Nice work by Solari.
