    Will We See The return of the FB??

    Now that Haley is running the show, what are the prospects of bringing back the nemesis of Bruce Arians..the FB?

    IMO, David Johnson ain't the answer...look at Jon Kuhn in Greenbay....it still kills me that we let him get away!

    Imagine what Mendy could do with a true FB leading the way....look at the success of Hynoski in NY. Sucks that he wanted to be a Steeler but we showed him no interest.....

    As long as the fb can catch the ball too, I would be for it. That's why Arians used a TE.

    Having a true FB would help out quite a bit.

    Since when did D. Johnson catch the ball: If the Steelers go three or four WR the have and have Mendenhall or Redman in the backfield they have plentley of options and need the FB to be a blocker.

    According to recent statements by Ben, they don't need a FB to run the ball effectively. That's still the Bruce Arians talking through him if you ask me though. I would love to see the return of a true FB to the roster, using a TE as a FB is never the answer. If you want to truly commit to running the ball, doing it like you used too in terms of effectiveness, then you get yourself a FB and let him do his job.

    I was mad when they let Kuhn go as well but BA would never have any part of an FB on his roster.

    If the OL was actually good and could dominate the LOS it wouldn't even matter if the Steelers had a FB or not....John Kuhn.....really? everytime I see him score one of his famous 1 yard TD runs or catch one of this 1 yard TD passes I always think of some you yinzers.......we should have kept John Kuhn......lol I think its safe to say with all the offensive talent the Pack have that John Kuhn is just along for the ride in the Packers offense....lol

    The way i see it is good line or not a full back is a necessary position. The Texans use a fullback and there running game is awesome plus the more blockers the better .
