Carey Davis named starting Fullback....I'm not sure how to feel about this!
 
Arians said that he "earned it" and "out played and out blocked Krieder" as well on ESPN Radio 1250 today. How do you guys feel about this? I've always been a huge Krieder fan and really feel (espicially now) he's been sort of taken for granted in the Tomlin era so far.

(I would post the link to the Post-Gazette story,but my post count isn't high enough yet)

Kind of a shocker to me....But you still have to think at those crucial times in games when the Steelers need a critical yard on 3rd and short or that TD in short yardage on the goal line that Kreider will be in there.....I think Davis is starting since he can run the ball and catch better then Kreider....

WHAT? THEN WHY DID THEY EVEN KEEP KREIDER? If he wasn't going to start, we should have lept Verron over him. Davis starting at fullback is a disgraceful decision in my opinion.

I gotta say I'm shocked. Not sure what I think though. We'll see soon if they really knew it was the right decision. Not to say I don't like CD; I do. He impressed me in preseason. Just didn't know it was THAT good!

But the problem is... HE IS STEEL HERE? Why keep an elite fullback around if we are not going to use him???

Just remember that starting only means he is in on the first series and doesn't mean that Kreider will not get in the game. I think that the term starter can sometimes be overrated. Let's wait and see who we go to on third and one.

I think that we kept Kreider because he's more valuable to the team than

1) Any player that we cut, and

2) Anything we could have received in return for him.

What the heck, he's good. And so is Davis. Either one is probably better than Verron. I really like Verron, but he's been injured in 4 of the last 5 years, and that's life in the NFL. We cut one of these guys and keep Haynes, and then when Haynes goes down both of these guys are already on someone else's roster; then what?

Davis gets nod over Kreider
 
Steelers will start Davis, not Kreider, at fullback
Thursday, September 06, 2007
By Gerry Dulac, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Carey Davis, a first-year free agent, has supplanted Dan Kreider as the No. 1 fullback and will start in the season opener against the Cleveland Browns.

Offensive coordinator Bruce Arians confirmed the move today after the Steelers finished practice at their South Side facility.

It is possible Kreider, the starter for the past five seasons, might be deactivated against the Browns.

"Everything is week to week, but he will be the fullback," Arians said of Davis. "He's doing a nice job for us."
