It's time for a board evaluation of Wilson. He has good hands, can recall only one dropped pass. For a second round pick he hasn't seen the field much. Gonzo blocking and running routes, Dunn blocking, leaves Bigfoot lurking in the shadows

I like him alot, personally. I think he's a real weapon out of the backfield.

Evaluation? He is a tweener who was supposed to create mismatches and confuse defenses. To this point it seems he only confuses our Offensive Coordinators- nobody seems to know how to use him. If he doesn't do something notable this year then I see no reason to keep him.

I actually liked him in the backfield. Brought a whole different look and someone you had to account for on play action.

I liked him at FB.

I second that, plus he had a career season last year.

I also liked him at FB. That is where he should stay unless something were to happen to TG.

You are correct when you said he has only dropped one catchable pass. He made a TD catch last year of a horrible pass. He has the best hands on the team IMO, something Croyle may find valuable.

Boomer likes to hit people. I think that's what they like about Boomer.

ROFL That's funny.

Bigfoot rocks - we need to get him more involved.

honestly....for a 2nd round pick hes been a disappointment overall. He didnt do anything for 2 years. He had a couple of decent games last year, but 3 or 4 decent games in 3 seasons???


This season should be a make or break year for him. Hopefully he continues to build on what he did last year (if he even wins the FB job???) If not, Al Saunders can have him back...

He was a very good lead blocker at the fullback position. His hands give him the opportunity to be an important weapon for our offense.

He was a very good lead blocker at the fullback position.

does anyone agree?

I couldn't tell if our running game struggled because of:
- bad OLine
- bad lead blocking by the FB
- bad, predictable play-calling
- mush-for-brains at QB

I'm not sure what I like more, Wilson's game at FB or his nicname. I hope Bigfoot is the Chief FB for the next decade.

I thought Bigfoot was great at FB. Could use a little more blocking work, but wasn't horrible. The fact that he gave the Chiefs another option out of the backfield is what I really liked.

As for Boomer being a FB, this is the first time I have heard this. Anyone willign to elaborate would be greatly appreciated. I have to admit, I am not opposed to the idea of it. Reminds me of a Mike Allstot kind of FB. Put your head down and knock people the fluck out.

Wilson was really a rookie fullback, I thought for no experience he did great.
some stats to think about:
larry's avg w cruz 3.46
larry's avg w wilson 4.63
cruz 0td
kilson 3td
Wilson was a servicable lead blocker and much better reciever than cruz or even trich.

doesn't take much to confuse them considering our Head Coach considers "schemes are made for pussies"

I like Kris Wilson at FB.

He's has the size to play FB.
He's got to be the most athletic FB in the league with the best hands.
He's not afraid to stick his nose in there when lead blocking.

We're set at FB

He was a very good lead blocker at the fullback position. His hands give him the opportunity to be an important weapon for our offense.Very good? Not in my opinion.

I'd describe him as a decent lead blocker. He seemed to do a good job occupying his man. Where he lacked what the very good FBs have was what he did after intial contact. Wilson is good for getting to one guy. The great FBs keep on downfield continuing to make blocks.

i agree with most of your points, but i'm bit skeptical about the bad lead blocking by the fullback...

and wrt the qb, which one(s) do you think are mush for brains?

i don't think that croyle has mush for brains, but he probably will after a few games behind our new o-line... :( :( :(

I would say that Moose was a very good fullback.

I think he's more of a weapon at FB than tight end. He's fast, has good hands and creates match-up problems. The problem when he was playing TE is that opposing teams would run a nickel because they knew when Dunn wasn't in there we were gonna pass. That meant he'd be matched up against a DB instead of LB. With him playing fullback you can do some things to get him out on LBs like what we did against SAn Diego when he ran right past Merriman.

Given a full offseason of work I imagine the staff will be able to get him much more involved, providing he stays at FB.

Kris Wilson can play any position, ever.

I think he is one of Carl's best picks. FOR REALIO.

I like him as a full back/H-Back, converting Boomer to FB upsets me. Lets run with what we were doing last season and get another big play WR ala Dwayne Jarrett!

How many games do those stats account for?

This guy was a very pleasant surprise for me.

His blocking still needs consistency, but i watched him level several guys over the year & its easy to assume that he'll gain that consistency as he goes.

I think he's WAY underused in the passing game, the dude has learned how to get open & when given the chance his hands delivered the promise that we heard so much about.

Its doubtful that he's a running threat, but does anyone think Grigsby will be??? Lack of run skills aside, he's a bigger & more physical Nimble Kimble IMO & is probably better at the downfield routes.

Were it my call, Boomer would sit on Paycheck Alley.

I liked him at H-Back/FB role. Still a crappy 2nd round pick but at least we found a position where he could be pretty good at.
