    I agree with you. However, If they get the Brandon Jacobs Syndrome and want to be tail backs instead of powering forward we'd have an issue. Jacobs in the end got the point and powered forward.
    I would like to pick up RS/RB Isaiah Peads of Cincy

    Baron Batch showed signs of being a capable blocker but I wouldn't want him as the full time lead guy. He's got talents that can be used elsewhere.

    Tomlin called Hynoski and wanted to sign him but it never worked out.

    i said during the super bowl that henry would have looked great in a black and gold uniform. too bad the FB is against arians religion or something.

    FB's can be found late in the draft...no need to go the FA round...hell if i remember correctly ( and i know you guys will call me on it if i'm wrong ) kreider was undrafted....
    "Today, I'm officially retiring a Pittsburgh Steeler. And as much as I will miss football, my teammates, coaches and everything about the game, I don't want to play it in any other uniform. The black and gold runs deep in me, and I will remain a Steeler for life."--Hines Ward

    With the ACL situations, we may need a starting RB.
    Not worried about a FB. We can fill that roll, we have 3 or 4 7th round picks if needed.

    HYNOSKI chose The Giants because Tom Coughlin Stayed on the phone talking to his mother while he answered other calls from NFL Teams. Tom Coughlin wanted to know more about his family. So He chose the Giants, Smart kid and a Super Bowl Champion as a rookie.

    Fullback out of West Virginia, walk on to the team and then became a starter in 2005. Played with the seahawks and eagles. According to his wiki, Schmitt attracted media and YouTube attention in the aftermath of a game during the 2009 NFL season during which he smashed his helmet against his head until he opened up a large gash
