    Could Legs play FB?

    Discuss....
    I wish people would/could leave politics out of a Steelers Football Forum.

    I love the idea of Legs playing fullback. I remember in the san diego game in 2009 when legs lined up at fullback and mendenhall ran for an easy TD.

    I just spit my pop on the keyboard.

    No, only in goal-line situations.

    I agree, Legs most likely would only see duty at FB on short-yardage and goal-line situations.

    otherwise, the Steelers are more likely to use Will Johnson and Jamie McCoy or look on the waiver wire for a hybrid FB/TE type of player.

    Fortunately, I had just finished my drink.

    If Legs plays like he played Thursday he'll be lucky to even make the team. He did not have a very good day. Although I'm not sure if it was his responsibility on the play where Rainey got caught in the backfield and shaken up a bit. It could have been a mix-up in assignments. Anyone know?

    In goal line and short yardage, I could see it...

    In the open field, I could see a pony backfield with Redman and Batch or Rainey...Redman did a little lead blocking and also carried the ball in certain formations as a FB...

    If you put in that pony backfield, it could give opposing DCs a fit...

    Wouldn't it be ironic if we finally saw the pony package BA talked about every year as soon as he leaves?

    I just imagined Bronko as a FB in front of Rainey with Rainey passing him into the hole. Heck Rainey might be in the hole by the time Bronko took his first step.

    I put this out there a few months back. I like the idea. Perfect build and he gets the game.

    What about big John Clay?

    With John Clays size, we should at least try him at fullback during a pre season game to see if he can get the job done.
