Now with the WCO gone from Cleveland IMO with the hiring of Chud...the Browns can now do away with these athletic FBs!!!


Marecic is supposed to be "athletic?"


He did play two positions on a very good Stanford team. Guy had talent, it just didn't translate. I do love that we fired a GM who fans' 1st complaint about is a full back.


Ughhhhhhhhhhhh

Dont remind me

I was hoping we could sign James Casey but that was before the Chud hire. I wanted a ZBS and James Casey as the FB but I don't think he fits what Chud would want to do here.

If recent history is any indication, Chud and Norv want their FB to do more than just lead block. They get a decent number of carries and catch passes.

Carolina has been going with Mike Tolbert, and San Diego has been going with LeRon McClain.

And of course, Tolbert came from San Diego to begin with. And very nearly won me a fantasy football championship in 2011

In Carolina, Chud primarily used blocking TEs more so than a FB. TEs are a huge part of Chuds game, they are key receivers down field, lead blockers for RBs, and even pull into the slot from time to time. We have had a FB, but was only used in "jumbo" or short yardage packages.

In Cleveland he used receiving TE's (KW2) and a big blocking full back (Vickers).

Good to hear he adapts.

If you have 2 capable TEs on the team, the offense will click very well. Our offense seemed much more fluid last year when we had Olsen and Shockey; we couldn't find that 2nd TE this year. Even though we couldn't get as a reliable TE this year, we still used a lot of 2 TE packages.

Yea if i remember correctly when he was with us I looked him up, he is a former TE and was the TE coach a few times as well.

Ish Kitchen played a bit of FB at Kent State. How about a 330 lb bowling ball opening (plugging?) holes in front of T Rich?

Bring Jim Brown out of retirement. Best FB of all time. He retired early so he has the fresh legs we need.
