I am talking about the Gruden that just got a $100 million dollar contract................that Gruden...........somebody seems to think he knows something.
$100 million dollars?! Jeepers. That ball club must really know what they're doing! I mean what other explanation could there e for hiring a coach that's proven he can't build a roster. They are SO far ahead of the curve, here. I'm almost jealous (and I'm CERTAIN that you are).

But Gathers is six inches taller and 50 pounds heavier than most fullbacks and tight ends. I see him as more of a wall off blocker from the HB spot, but it would clearly be the weakest part of his game. Even compared to James Hanna, an excellent blocker at TE2, he has a major size advantage.
Guess I'm saying being over 6'0 6'1 makes it harder to be a lead blocker.

Blocking a defensive end inline is completely different than trying to block a LBer on the move.

No, I agree for sure. But I think the main use for Gathers would either be receiving or walling off guys on the edge rather than rooting out players to clear a hole for the RB.

No argument here. If he can figure it all out. I honestly am losing faith. Guy talks too much. Just go out, work hard and ball.

Is this really worth 26 pages
Hell no, but here we are. I'm partly guilty for this also, so I shouldn't complain. I supplied too many posts to this thread myself.

And here's another one! I need an Intervention!

When a fullback is likely your prized player you get ... what else do we have!
Ooh... I like that. I might hang on to that one instead of my Intervention, which I totally do not need...

Not sure why people are making a big deal about this. We lost our FB, we got another one, a good one. We won't have to get one in the draft because we got (a good one) with NFL game time under his belt.

Maybe if we gave him 6 mill a year they would have liked it. Then we could immediately restructure him and they would be in love with it.

mr gimmie---- sir please do your homework...cowboys traded a 5th for a 6th...and Keith Smith is head and shoulders better than Olawaze...blocks better ....catches passes better....is a specail team ace and in a pinch can play linebacker...cowboys only saved approx.. 400k in money...not worth it...Smith transitioned from linebacker to fullback/special teams...and became one of the best in NFL in 2 years...the dude is a stud

More of a coin flip which one is better. Smith is three years younger than Olawale, so there is that.

Without sifting through a 26 pager for a fullback, what did we trade?

Raiders are visiting with Suh tomorrow.

I wonder why? He must suck or something since we want nothing to do with him.
