Default Give Dan back to Willie!!!

Without Ward and Holmes and a limited D-line we really need to establish a running game. Willie production is dropping and his long runs are not balancing out with his losses. Hes getting popped before he can even get to the line of scrimmage. The real fullback Dan Kreider needs to be reinserted into the offense at times.

I think Dan is the consumate pro and he's a team guy..never have you heard a negative thing about Dan Krieder! He 's a good football player

#35 will no doubt be in front of Willie alot down the road....its not like they are throwing the ball to the FB , so why not keep Krieder blocking for Willie? !

It felt good to see Dan in there playing and laying out Seattle defenders.

I wore my Krieder jersey during the first half, and James Farrior during the second half.

I don't know...

I think maybe it is a matter of allowing DK to keep healthy so that he and Dookie can simply pound, pound, pound in the second half of the season, second half of games.

We are going to need that down the stretch.

Dan Kreider deserves to be in the backfield as the starting FB over Davis. willie ran way better in there today while he was in play. Also look at both of Najehs' TDs. Kreider made way for him on both occasions.

True.

But that also gives away the fact that we are going to be running. I would rather do what we are doing.

Can you imagine what DK will look like in game 14 making holes in the 3rd and 4th quarter? He may be THE GUY that closes the door on other teams.

I have to agree with Preacher here. I'm all for Krieder in short yardage and goalline but it's hard to argue with the play calling today.
