    Marcel Reece the Raiders FB is a former WR and really isn't used as a traditional FB.........The Giants havn't ran the ball worth a **** all year......I would say yes the FB has a huge role with Dallas, Jets, Baltimore and Houston.........The Vikings use AP in single back a lot.......Most NFL teams don't even have a FB on the roster...So the FB is pretty much a dying position in the NFL......

    Harrison made a good point. But what you said is also an obvious trend as well. The Ravens got Leach who is an amazing FB as a FA and he has been with lik 4 or 5 teams. So I think the system is the important part of an FBs importance.

    I still think that we need to keep our balance on O, especially in Dec. Something like this would play to all of our strengths.
