Don’t know if this deserves its own topic or not, but Danny Vitale just signed with the Patriots.

Fine with me...I was completely underwhelmed by his performance...not at all Kuhn like. Let's sign some more TEs and stick them back there occasionally.

Packers never used him right, he was a receiver in college and just used him a power blocker...

And when they did use him as a receiver out of the backfield, Rodgers either didn't look his way or could throw a good short pass... and Vitale at time got wide freaking open! (Partly scheme, partly defense forgetting about the FB and partly good route running)... problem is Rodgers would forget about him too, or forget how to throw a pass on target when targeting him.

Hard to impress is you're never given a chance...

Don't expect another Kuhn... Kuhn took years to prove his worth, and they tried to go with Korey Hall and Quinn Johnson over him before they realized Kuhn's versatility.

The thing is, Vitale had even more versatility and they never used it...

Vitale so should have been used as a WR and RB at least twice each...

Rodgers over threw Vitale and missed big plays like 4 games in a row. Could not connect.

a fullbacks primary job is to block esp in short yardage situations. IMO, he was well below average in this primary function...if you can't fulfill the basic function. the rest doesn't matter.

And a football player primary job is to help the team win no matter the stupid label you out on them, no matter how totally incorrect it is.

Jimmy Graham has always been a super large WR, but they call him a TE.

Vitale has always been a verstile H-Back but they call him a FB.

Labels are wrong, which is way you can't limited your mind to just the label...

Also, this just in, none of the NFL teams are primary a 3-4 not 4-3 defense anymore! Those labels are all false too, as all teams primary run nickel based defenses with 5 DBs.

I don't care what you call them or label them, Graham couldn't block well enough and neither could Vitale. I am not the one who labelled Vitale a fullback, he was acquired to be a FB (check the Packers website)

Irrespective of his position or label...neither got it done. Good bye.

I never claimed you out the label anything, I said "they", which is not "you".

Vitale was acquired to do as he was told and help the team in anyway he possibly could... not just as a blocker (as that's never been his strength as an H-Back /WR in college).

His acquisition, for the role he was playing, was a mistake.

Letting him go is not a mistake.

No, his acquisition for your expectations was a mistake... as you're expectations is rooted in old school football version of a FB.

His acquisition for being a verstile chess piece as some modern player are, of not fitting into a single label but being tweeners was quite good. He was just more H-Back than FB... but H-backs don't get their own label, so they called him a FB and that set up the wrong expections.

The kid got wide ass open with his routes as times...

Exactly, they had big plays waiting for Vitale doing a great job in his routes, as he's mainly a verstile receiver, but the balls never got to him...

Assuming his main skill set is blocking is wrong, more than his acquisition being wrong.

I didn't have him on my opening day 53 last season and people here howled at how wrong I was. He didn't do much to show that GB should try it again.
