Thread: FB Jacob Hester cut in San Diego

    FB Jacob Hester cut in San Diego

    What are your thoughts on the Steelers taking a look at him? From watching him in San Diego, he seems like a good FB?

    He was also the Chargers special teams captain last year. I'm not sure how he is as a blocker, but the special teams prowess could make him interesting.

    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 dont know any more about him than i do about Will Johnson, our current FB. and WJ caught a 27 yard pass against Carolina which made me happy.
    Guess id like to see what WJ can do

    He would be an upgrade from WJ... Not to take away from our current #1 FB, JH was leader in college, something my fellow SEC brethren can attest to... And being capt of SD's special teams, it has obviously translated into the pro's. From my recollection he was an asset in run blocking and more so in the pass catching department, but average in pass protection. All that being said, I would assume he would command a higher price tag than WJ.... And we need to save as much $ as possible. I say pass...even though we are a little thin @ FB. I would rather get creative and put Legs in there in goal line packages.

    Chargers have been pretty bad on special teams the last couple of years. Two years ago they finished with the #1 offense and the #1 defense and failed to make the playoffs. Lots of blunders on special teams cost them several games.
    We'll do the same thing that we always do. We'll take every situation from week to week and do what we think is best for that week and evaluate it on that basis. - Bill Belichick

    Nice bit of insight, Tip. Thanks.

    BTW, interesting piece about your boys. Probably more to this than it written. Any more insight ?

    x2...Ovie might be worth a shot but he has his own injury issues too.
    It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust & sweat & blood...

    I want a thumper too; someone who loves to block and knock people on their wallets. I think JH is more of an over all type of FB, where he gets some carries and passes. I don't think he is one of those guys who is happy just to block all day long. That is not the impression I get of JH.
