When has a QB ever used as FB? Take those occurrences and compare them with the amount of times a TE was used as FB. Do you see how senseless the analogy you made was or do you just refuse to understand that I'm saying we're going to use a TE in the FB position? Should I have put him at TE and put FB in parentheses to indicate that I think he's a TE who's going to be used in the FB position?

The "true" FB the Packers had was officially changed to TE.

*SIGH* Whatever you want Zero.

I said a long time ago that a TE can line up in the FB position. Still doesn't make him a FB. He's still a TE playing another position. If you want to call him a FB, I really don't care. Do it.

I think the only reason they changed the FB was because they changed the depth chart to get rid of the FB all together.

Delontae Scott is still listed as a DL, even though at 6'5", 246lbs, he's thinner than some SS. I believe Scott is an OLBer with the Packers.

I call him a TE that plays the FB position. Just as I slotted him in the original post. Still not sure why all the hassle about it.

Or maybe they changed him to TE and since they didn't have a FB they removed the position? 😜🤓

Maybe, but they got rid of the FB and added a 3rd starting WR role instead.

A true tight end (not a Graham type) has to be, by the nature of the position, the most versatile player on the field. He has to:
  • have hands
  • have the size, strength and willingness to block LBs and DEs,
  • speed enough to be a threat down field
  • and brains enough to know most of the offense
.Although, he can play fullback, most are too tall to be ideally suited for that position.

In a pinch, which almost happened Sunday, fill in on the O-line.

In a sense, he is the decathlete of the offense.
