Every team using some version of the "West Coast Offense" and then some have a fullback (San Fran, Green Bay-hi 210, Baltimore, Denver, etc.). Just because fullbacks don't *run* the ball as much anymore, doesn't mean there aren't some good ones in the league, right?

I mean, someone has to block for the Garcia's, Favre's, and Holmes' of the world, right?

DrOp--agrees that Driver got the snub. Ditto to McNair.

Most of the time the running back stays in to pick up the blitzes in the WCO and then pops out as an outlet. Very few WCO's utilize a two back set. There are very few fullbacks left in the league these days that play more than half of the teams offensive plays.

Cecil Martin is the supposed fullback for the Eagles but is the #4 back on the roster and gets maybe 4 or 5 plays a game.

From the infamous Wrestleline SS interview:

DTD: If you were to make changes in WCW, if you were in charge and not Ric Flair, what would they be?

SS: I'd get rid of all the old guys, and push the talent that has waited to get the push. The things they are doing, it's back in the 1980s. It's just bad, man. Flair doesn't even deserve to be on the show. You've got to get rid of all the old guys. Like what Vince did, they started pushing guys. Nobody knew who The Rock was 2 years ago. He made The Rock. Now The Rock just did Saturday Night Live. You've got to start with the young talent, talent people can relate to. Who are we trying to relate to if we've got a 50 year old man out there? Are we trying to relate, so a 50 year people and above will go out and buy a f*cking little toy? That ain't gonna happen. It's a f*cking joke.

Does it remind you of any show in particular?

I disagree with those who don't think Shockey deserves the spot. A lot of Shockey's impact isn't visible in stats, and here's a simple parallel to explain why.

The Giants' wide receiver corps is ravaged. Hilliard, Dixon, and Carter are all gone for the year, so they have the rookie kick returner (Daryl Jones) starting alongside Toomer.

So, then, why was Toomer able to tee off for 200+ yards against a Colts defense with a good secondary that is ranked eighth in the NFL?

I'll let you figure out that one for yourself.

They put up tons of yards but it was screwed by tons of turnovers, and those aren't really on the offensive coordinator.
