Where's Christian Fauria?

I haven't heard anything about him since we signed him. It's obvious that Robert Johnson who was injured again last night is having problems staying healthy and Cooley hasn't had had any passes thrown his way, someone give me an update.

Re: Where's Christian Fauria?

I worry about the blocking ability for our TE's. If Cooley is the best blocker, we have a problem.

Robert Johnson is 6'8. If he can't block, then we are in even bigger trouble since we let Robert Royal go.

Re: Where's Christian Fauria?

I don't think Johnson's problem is blocking, it's staying healthy

Why you bashing the Rock. The Rock says he is a valuable special teamer for this club and good enough to fill as the number 2 back for this team. The Rock wants to take you back to last season and remind you of St. Louis and a 13 yarder against San Diego. If you smell what the Rock is Cookin!!!!! its all good we all have opinions....lol

Blocking is about 80% technique. I'll put a 230 LB TE on the goalline if he has great technique and drive. That's something that Royal brought to the table.

I hope Johnson fills that void, but isn't he a converted WR?

No that was Ron Johnson who got cut a while back.

Rock is a number 2 but not in football. Number 2's need toliets to flush in.

When he came around to sign at camp I told him I was cool, and he moved on.
Thats messed up, but somewhat funny. Why such hatred for the K State Supa sta?....LOL

Re: Where's Christian Fauria?

Fauria is a pretty solid blocker, I wouldn't worry.

Re: Where's Christian Fauria?

Lumsden could be better than the rock. i wanna see him play more though. he could be that diamond in the rough. it'd be nice since betts won't be a skin this time next year.

Re: Where's Christian Fauria?

Janky-

Why would the coaching staff only give him one carry against their scrubs at the end of the game?

It didn't even seem like they were interested in evaluating him as a player. I don't think he's making the squad.

Re: Where's Christian Fauria?

he's been nursing an injury but there has been alot of talk about him in camp. You however do make a good point. I stand down.

Re: Where's Christian Fauria?

No need to stand down, two days ago I thought Lumsden would make the squad. I was shocked the coaching staff wouldn't let him play and I have to assume they've got a good reason for it.

You're totally right about the injury which I had (semi) forgot. There's an off chance he wasn't fit to play. Perhaps the 3rd game will bring better news for Lumsden.
