    Don't get it twisted buddy... the guy got canned off a Seattle team devoid of talent. Scheme or not.

    One thing about Steeler Nation: get a white guy, who did a thing or two pretty well (Hoke that one year, Krieder)... in this case, make him a local hero--and we got the next John Riggins on our hands.
    Yeah....Kreider was only a fan favorite because he was white....
    And Tim Lester was a fan favorite because he was...wait a minute... :P
    Lets not forget beloved honkeys and future hall of famers Gary Russell and Ike Redman.

    I still can't find anything official that says he was released...

    good point, don't you guys know that Bruce Arians doesn't believe in Fullbacks?

    I'm not sure Arians even knows what a fullback is much less believe in fullbacks. :P

    Ryan Leaf had great college highlights as well...

    I will ask AGAIN... any NFL film of Owen tearing it up?

    I'm not down on the kid, he was a beast at WVU but I'm wondering if he is getting tossed by NFL LB's or if he just didn't fit their scheme.

    The only clip I can find is Owen bashing his head and gushing blood everywhere in pregame. LOL!!!

    He simply didn't fit the Seahag scheme. He's a blue collar guy.

    its obvious we need a fb. we dont have an oline that is dominant in run blocking and a fb who can block would help out the running game tremendously. the same can be said for carey davis. who can vouch for carey davis being a decent nfl player? i cant. anyone is an upgrade compared to carey davis. anyone that is besides frank summers. he doesnt deserve the name frank the tank. he couldnt even block me

    Why is it obvious we need a FB? Because Mendenhall didn't get 1800 yards and have a 7 yard average?

    Mendenhall had 1100 yards in 13 games... in 2 of those games he had 10 and 11 touches..
    he also averaged 4.6 yards a carry.

    If we were going smashmouth or abandoning are wide open O then I would agree...but looking at the run game last year the FB wasn't the problem.

    Yes, but if you take away 5 of Mendy's longest runs away in each game how did he do? My guess is not very well.
