    I would love to have seen more of the pony backfield with Mendy and Redman, myself. It seemed to have great results when used. I loved quick hitters with Redman up the gut.

    Overall I would like to see more imagination in the running game. Not necessarily more running plays, but more imagination in the design of such.

    Overall, the key is balance and keeping the defense guessing. That and execution.

    Great post, Haze!

    didn't we just sign that FB from the West Virginia pro day?? ... i forget his name and don't feel like looking it up ... but i doubt they draft one since they have him now ... he ran in the 4.5 range and benched 30 reps ...and said he looked real good catching the ball too ... said the tomlin and colbert pulled some sneaky stuff because they didn't want any other teams to get a look at him

    I can't remember his name either, but he played TE.

    I've been watching some Chiefs and Cardinals videos and it wouldn't surprise me if Haley DOESN'T bring back a true fullback. In the vids I watched his offenses were very similar to what we've seen over the last few years. There were times that they would line up in the I or an offset I, but there were also a lot of single back formations etc.

    Fine
    His name is Will Johnson. youtube him and you will be happy. He's more HB however he runs routes,lead blocks and should make the team. I'd also like them to bring in Owen Schmitt & Lenard Pope.

    That's him, apparently he was originally a WR and converted to TE/HB.

    Perfect. Hope he make it. Plus if we make him 85 we save on lettering...
