Paul Kuharsky doesn’t hate guys who play fullback, just the message it sends when you put a fullback on the field:
I am anti-fullback and pro tight end. You might be throwing when a tight end or two is on the field. You’re probably running if a fullback is out there. It’s too narrow a role.
I agree. So does Nate:
A few months ago, it looked like the Colts were going to run a ground-and-pound offense. This would have been death to hopes of winning any time soon in Indianapolis.
So in less than three months the Colts have gone from talking about a smash-mouth offense designed to run between the tackles to one that looks less crazy and more intent on winning. By sending fullback Chris Gronkowski to the Broncos for a cornerback who likely will be buried on the depth chart even with a roster this thin in the secondary, the Colts have clearly signaled that fullbacks aren’t a priority.
