Default Todd Haley's offense?

I assume he wants to run the ball since we "fired" Bruce for not running it (Let me know if I am wrong there) but does Haley use a fullback in his offense? I know for the Chiefs Haley had Leron McClain but I am not sure he is a Dan Kreider like fullback.

Any clue what we are going to be looking at?

Yeah he does. Ironically you mentioned Kreider, Dan Kreider is who was brought in to Arizona when Haley became OC. Whiz may have had something to do with that but Haley used him. And of course LeRon was brought in to KC, who while I personally dont care for him much as a person (has always just seemed like an arrogant loudmouth since his Baltimore days), he is one of the best fullbacks in the league.

If not by the 2012 season, by 2013 I would surely expect us to be incorporating a fullback if Haley is still here.

Last I knew he got waived and picked up by the Chargers.

I was unaware of LeRon was that good. I guess I just just remember him when he was really just running the ball in Baltimore. I was never a fan of his either. So I guess that explains why I never gave him much attention. Thanks for helping me out. Very pumped to have a FB again.

We picked him up in round five of the '09 draft. Figured he'd work out, coach Wilson was impressed.

We also had Henry Hynoski (SB contributor for the G-Men) here, we could've had either him or Summers. They could've worked out here. But you see, we had ONE single issue...

Not to mention John Kuhn. God, I'm glad Arians is gone.

It will be good to have the FB back in the offense. That was one of my beefs with Arians. Too short sighted to see its effectiveness in the offense. Too bad we didn't get Hynoski- he looks like a good one.

It doesn't mention us ever having Hynoski on Wikipedia
