I mentioned recently that they should look at this. Excerpt from Arians interview yesterday

Q: Any specific changes? I saw a lot of tight end at fullback today.

A: Last year we started with the three-TE stuff and we lost Jerame Tuman right away. You want to have those packages available. You keep throwing stuff at them and utilize guys who can play multiple positions to give the defense a different look.

It just makes sense because we have a really good group of TEs.

Would be interesting. As I have said many time in the past I'd love to see Miller (6'5"), Spaeth (6'7") and Boyd (6'8") in the red zone. I really do like the idea of a TE/FB and the flexibility that would provide.

Does anyone remember who said this would happen?

:mrgreen:

It's an obvious move to eliminate the need for Davis. If a TE can
prove worthy of playing FB...bubye C.D. Like I also said before...you
very well could see Russell at FB before the end of camp.

Time to cue up the Twilight Zone theme now.

As much as many want to bash Arians I really like the direction I see this offense going.

Isn't praise for Arians from Steeler fans one of the signs of the apocalypse?

I'll be keeping my eyes open for the subsequent plague of locusts... :lol:

You guys are both wrong. DVSONE called this way before any of us. Just ask him. :lol:

As a side note -- based on the highlights I have seen on RM, I believe that he will be able to run out of these types of formations better that FWP, who I think does indeed need a bruiser like Krieder to open up "the" hole.
