Okay ... this thread is personal and selfish ... but I'm looking for some feedback on this issue. If someone can set my mind straight perhaps
I get over this issue ... I'll be sad
but I will live on.
Belichick loves big-butt blocking TE's. he won't overpay for them but he loves to have at least one. Every year I look for a big fat butt FB to line up in our backfield because I figure Belichick ... old school football coach would love to have a road grader back there ... but he never picks one.
Okay ... he doesn't want to waste a draft pick on one ... good enough for me I guess
but hey BILL ... HOW ABOUT SIGNING ONE AS A FA???
Here is my wish list ... unless someone can cure me of this FB OCD problem.
and eexplain why Belichick likes Big-butt TE's but not big-butt FB's to protect Tom and block for LoMo.
1 - Owen Schmitt - 6'2" - 247 - 4.65 - this guy would have to be drafted ... maybe as high as round 5 so he's just a dream.
2 - Jerome Felton FB
", 242, 4.639)
This guy is mean ... delivers a good punch and has great hands BILL!!!
he is an excellent short-yardage runner, a tough blocker and a dependable receiver out of that backfield. That versatility should make him a late-round pick. BILL ...COULD YOU SPARE THE 6TH FOR THIS GUY I know ... fah-get-a-bout-it
3 - NO DRAFT PICK NEEDED FOR :
Michael Cox FB
(6'0", 257, 4.7)
... good blocker and pass catcher ... very mean!!!
Jed Collins FB
", 244, 4.9)
... Jed can be a backup LB or TE ... good ST'er.
Doug Jones FB (6'3", 275, 4.9)
... THIS GUY CAN LONG SNAP ... sorry Lonnie...
Understands the importance of positioning and does a solid job of sealing defenders. Aggressive when goes low and is an effective cut blockers that can knock defenders off of their feet. Has experience lining up at tight end and is versatile.
Would it be too much to ask for Bill to bring this guy in as a FA? I think Maroney would love him!!!
Okay ... pick one or cure me of my FB OCD problem.
