You should call Bruce and tell him that....

Fullback a dirty word
Arians claims there is no fullback in his offense and never will be. The coordinator could be a little sensitive to the criticism often aimed his way for not using a fullback the way they did under previous coordinators, especially when they had Dan Kreider.

"There's not a fullback on the roster," Arians said. "There's a running back who plays fullback, a tight end who plays fullback. I don't have a fullback. There's no fullback in my offense, there's never going to be one."

Having a fullback, that has proven in more than just one game, is something Bruce doesn't like. He prefers Matt Spaeth, 6'7 230 lbs of wastes space.

As for Summers, he gets another chance to prove he can play FB and maybe take some carries as a RB in training camp. Mendenhall, Moore, Summers, Rookie draft pick and Logan are in at RB next season is my prediction.
i'd like that, as long as Summers pans out

I would love to see Miller, Johnson and McHugh as our TEs. Also, I still believe in Summers. It can't be easy trying to learn the FB spot when all you played is RB in college. I also think Summers should be given a shot to line up as RB a few times.
