GREAT IDEA!!! Where should it go....Blast Furnace?

We should put some kind of limitation on it of say 5 year, so that will allow us to get most "big backs" in the discussion----- like Ron Dayne, T.J. Duckett, etc. but still allow for guys like Kevan Barlow, Quincy Wilson, Kevin Jones, etc.

The problem is that many still think of Hunt as a "big back"....When in truth he has lost weight and is more the size of Mendenhall now...when he played college he was 6'1 237 lbs ...but at the time he was cut he was only 6'1 221 lbs.

That means "Dookie" outweighs him by 26 lbs..
Davis outweighs him by 4 lbs ...
Mendenahll outweighs him by 3 lbs....
Vincent is only 2 lbs lighter...
and Russell is only 6 lbs lighter.

Only Parker and Moore (both at 209 lbs) are significantly lighter and neither are ever going to be confused with being "Big Backs".

So....Since five of our current players already know the playbook and are either bigger or virtually the same size as Hunt...it would NOT be in our best interest to drop any of them and pick up Hunt for the sole purpose of his filling a "Big Back" position.

Roethlisberger + 2 first rounders for John Kuhn? Sounds fair, right. Actually, it might be a steal for us - don't be surprised if they want another first!

I like the idea up picking him up. He isn't great, but in our system I believe that he would flourish. Maybe even spell Carey Davis as the starting FB. I don't think that he fits into the Iggles offfensive scheme.

Seems like BA thinks that we want that same scheme. The Bengals game was not much different from the classic Westbrook eagles offence that almost never rushed the ball. Three pass plays from first and goal? Maybe he's just deciding based on the personnel.

I think we should have some personnel flexibility in the offence personnel-wise so we could line up in the I-formation and have some decent passing options from there to keep teams off balance and also to run the power up-the-gut plays. I was really hoping we's pick up Owen Schmidt from WVU in the draft but he went to the seagulls. LenDale White as well a few years back as well. When I heard he showed up to the combine overweight I knew he was my guy.

I was pulling for us to draft Schmit as well. He was a beast in the mold of a nastier more agile Danny Kreider.
