    Your post still makes no sense.

      Do you think we'd really offer Jacobs any more than vet min?

        To bad because I still think he has the physical tools to play FB. But like you said he is not interested.

          Pascoe is clearly more a blocking tightend, but, according to Pope, he does catch better than Hynoski which is why they used him last season at FB. I definitely don't kn ow what I'm talking about, but Mike Pope should. lol

          I always think of Belichick imploring his defenders to let Eli throw to Manningham. You have to account for Pascoe as a TE no matter where he lines up. Sort of like an QB like RGIII who can run past a lot of defenders and gain chunks of yards. I'm not suggesting Pascoe is a Mark Bavaro, but on any given play...

            Not likely. He could have stayed here for $500K less and left.

                Notice who he named after Manningham...

                On the other hand, by this point in the game, Ballard and Beckum were both down.

                  You do not have to account for Pascoe. BB was imploring the defense to make Eli to throw to MM because of Pascoe; he wanted to put triple or better coverage on Nicks and Cruz. Had nothing to do with Pascoe. You don't need to account for a guy that doesn't even have an average of 10 targets a season.

                    I doubt that. But, for arguments sake let's say you do; your ability to communicate that knowledge is supremely lacking.

                      lets see......Pascoe has been said to stink at FB. I guess because he is not a FB by nature...
                      What would make Jacobs any better???

                          The idea that you can just plug in any oversized RB to play FB is not realistic. I still remember the Alstott experiment at FB. He was an awful blocker. He sure was big though. I don't think Jacobs would excel in the FB role.
                          Because of all of the effort and examination being poured into these predictions, the draft is a robust market that, in the aggregate, does a good job of sorting prospects from top to bottom.1 Yet despite so many people trying to “beat the market,” no single actor can do it consistently. Abnormal returns are likely due to luck, not skill. But that hasn’t stopped NFL executives from behaving with the confidence of traders.

                              Pascoe will be a good FB, for the time being. If Leach signs, great. If not, well be alright. Hynocerous will be back by week 3-4 and he'll be blocking and receiving for a long time. Best in the league by 2014. Mark it down.

                                They tried him as a traditional fullback, but the experiment failed. Alstott had the most success in single back formations or running out of I back formations. He was a powerful runner, great receiver, and awful blocker. Wherever and whenever they ran plays with him as a lead blocker it was brutal to watch.
