    Not sure if it matters much who plays FB in his offense, since he doesn't use a FB in his offense.



    Can Owen Schmitt catch ?? If so then i can see Steelers going after him.
    In his 2 seasons in Seattle (2 starts in 30 games), he has 5 rushing attempts (for 21 yards) and 12 receptions (for 50 yards). At WVU, he carried 160 times for 1,003 yards (6.3-yard average) and 13 touchdowns, as he was tackled for a loss just twice. He caught 32 passes for 288 yards (9.0-yard avg) and two scores, adding 34 yards on two kickoff returns. Four of his 21 college starts were at TE. Arians seems to love FB/TE hybrid type guys, so there is a chance (if he is indeed cut this time, unlike the last time we discussed this, when his release was only a false rumor).

    He has also been known to bash himself in the head repeatedly with his own helmet. He may not be the sharpest knife in the drawer, but a spark of insanity may not necessarily be an awful thing for a fullback (I'd be more worried if, say, my accountant was bashing himself in the head).

    I would trade Dixon for him right now. Let alone sign him as a FA. This would be a great pickup!

    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    I don't know about that, but I'd trade Summers for him or Hartwig for him. :P

    I would drive Summers to the airport at the same time i was picking Schmitt up from the airport. First of all it saves gas money (to re-sign Woodley). Second if we can induce a crossing of paths, we be able to provoke a head butting contest.

    On HardKnocks, the Jets have discussed getting rid of Tony Richardson even though he's still playing at a high level according to their coach.

    I don't really understand the love for the big dumb white FB who has only played in 2 games in the NFL and likes to hit himself in the head. Then some even want to trade Dixon for him??? I'm not sure if that is just a West Virginia thing or what, but Owen isn't going to help us more than Dixon might.

    Not sure why anyone would want to get rid of Dixon at this point.

    Some people can't help themselves.... Grisham is also a star in the making.

    The only way Owen will succeed in the NFL is if a team runs the triple spread option.

    Watch any Navy game and you will see the FB getting 10 to 15 yards a few times a game.

    I wouldn't trade Dixon...

    But, to be fair, Schmitt has played in more NFL games than Dixon (and far more than two)...
