Kuharsky hates the fullback

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.

About Todd Smith

Todd Smith is a part-time sportswriter who spends too much time arguing on Twitter. What he really loves is eating poorly and watching football. He got his first Colts t-shirt in 1984 shortly after the Mayflower trucks arrived and has never given up on his hometown team. He also still holds to the belief that Kordell Stewart stepped out of the end zone and thus cheated the Colts.
