DiMarco to IR

No need for a FB with Smith and Sweeney.

 

Maybe this is my ignorance, but can either Smith or Sweeney fill the traditional lead-blocker role of a fullback?

 

It's been my impression that Smith doesn't have the quick twitch and low center of gravity to block in traffic - he can basically act as a 6th OLman?

Also my impression that Sweeney has a long way to go to develop as a blocker in the NFL? 

 

I could be wrong

I wonder if the picture on the right was taken when they told him he was being placed on IR?

This also makes me wonder if at times our 2 RB sets are gonna have both Moss and Singletary on the field at the same time?

 

I'd vote for that.  Was wondering if they'd consider that.  Technically what is the difference between a full back and guy built like Moss?  If you need a true FB for certain plays, couldn't Moss fill that role?

Great to see Sweeney back, has he done any work at all though? I didn’t think he was even running yet.

He likely goes on IR after the final cutdown.  With the new rules, IR players can now return after three weeks.

They should have just kept him on the PUP list.

Is that for all IR, or just the covid-19 IR?

If a player starts camp on the PUP list, he can be put on the regular season PUP list.

I’ll answer your question with another question?  Do we really need a traditional lead blocking FB?  I’d almost rather have Moss out there as the lead back 🤷🏾‍♂️

Just checked to be sure. All IR

On the lead blocking whatever need, that's one for Daboll. 

 

On Moss, though, if you want a 1-2 punch at RB you for sure don't want one of the guys to eat up body blows and wear and tear blocking for the other.

Ah, OK, but just looked it up - then he can't come back for 6 weeks

Certainly would add another dimension to our short yardage package.  I’m not talking about Moss playing FB in all short yardage/goalline situations.  I would like to see a lot of 2 back sets with Moss and Singletary though.  I just don’t think a traditional FB is necessary.

In general, I’m cool without one and having more of a single back offense.

 

id rather see beasley or brown get a shot downfield in coverage late in important games

Thing is, Daboll seems to roll that way

Somebody around here called this one...in a separate thread no less...wonder who?

Me, in the WR/TE discussion.

 

Bummer it is bad enough to shut DiMarco down. Warrior salute!

Yes, you are correct.  So you think Gilliam makes it?  He might be a better receiver than DiMarco and is reportedly solid on ST 🤷🏾‍♂️

I would have to give that one "insufficient data". 

 

I thought there were reports he was looking pretty good, but didn't McDermott say something about "he's got a long way to go" or something like that, recently?

I think he said “he’s not ready.”  We’ll see I guess.  Might be someone on the market after tomorrow?

If he can play kickoff and punt coverage, he’ll make the 53.  Probably won’t get any touches, if he does we’re in trouble anyways.

For the past 4 years I always heard how DiMarco was on the roster because of what he does on special teams. Can anyone confirm if was actually a good special teams player? It just seems odd that despite not being a good fullback during his time here he always hung around.
