It's starting to look like it...

We will probably draft 3 more to make up for the loss of T Rich.

Still paying the price for that one!

For those who don't know....

April 14th-
Chiefs President Carl Peterson announced on Monday that the club has agreed to terms of a two-year contract with FB Chris Manderino. As per Chiefs policy, no other terms of the agreement were made available.

Manderino spent the entire 2007 campaign on Cincinnatiís practice squad. He also spent a portion of the 2006 season on the Bengals developmental squad.

April 16th-
Chiefs President Carl Peterson announced on Wednesday that the club has agreed to terms of a two-year contract with FB John Paul Foschi. As per Chiefs policy, no other terms of the agreements were made available.

Foschi appeared in 11 games as a member of the Oakland Raiders from 2004-06.
*****************

I think that's 4 fullbacks now. I'm just happy we're signing these guys instead of wasting draft picks on fullbacks. I don't think fullback is a hard position to fill with mediocre talent. Fullback isn't a position we should be wasting picks on. If we sign these guys, then a couple undrafted FAs, we should be set at fullback for this upcoming year.

How are you waisting a pick if you pick up a player like Hester? He's listed as a fullback but is an all around good player.

Other than Richardson and Oneil, you couldn't name 4 more in this league without looking them up. The fullback position is becoming obsolete. I'm sure Gailey wouldn't have a problem instituting an offense that wouldn't require one....there are plenty of offenses out there that don't require one.....so no. you don't need to waste a pick on a fullback.

Signing free agents will work just fine.

Sure. I am with ya. ***struggles to keep a straight face*** Some positions just don't need to be considered.

Hey, uhh... if we aren't going to use a FB, then why do we have four of them here now?

If a team seriously wants to run an offense without a FB, then it can be done. It happens alot. But those teams rarely have four fullbacks under contract.

And if you are going to use a FB, then wouldn't you want him to be a good one?

You really are detached....do you honestly think we're going to keep all four under contract?

Nope. But for a team that doesn't need one FB, they sure do have alot right now. Don't they?
