Zorn's next fullback!

I'm not sold also on Sellers being our fullback in this offense. I believe that Leonard Weaver from Seattle is someone to watch for here. I mean Zorn is familiar with him along with Stump Mitchell, assistant head coach-running backs. This kid is amazing as a fullback in the west coast fullback. I would like to put Sellers in as Tightend if possible but not fullback. Just because we kept Buges (which was a good move for one year) I still believe we will not be physical up the gut running team next season. We will be more on the perimeter running team. Weaver has better hands, faster and seems to know his role in this type of offense. Also, Weaver is a restricted free agent and was not a drafted so he would not cost us a draft pick unless that put in a tender that requires one. I like Sellers alot just not our fullback. I watched so many games that he just basically missed his assignment. Feel free to clown me but this is just my opinion.

Re: Zorn's next fullback!

Sellers is the man. He can be a probowl fullback in any offense. Have you seen his blocks and hands? UR NUTS!

Re: Zorn's next fullback!

Sellers has played well for several years and is one of the core Redskin players who are "Skins"!

Are you just saying this as you are caught up in player dealings as the FO has in the past...don't make change just for the sake of change. Sellers is a pro-bowler type at his position.

Re: Zorn's next fullback!

Maybe I am wrong but I always thought Sellers was pretty damn good. I see him as core player

Re: Zorn's next fullback!

He is a core player but I just don't think he is cut out to be a full back in this west coast offense. He is made for a more power smash mouth team and not for a finesse west coast team.

Who said we're going to be finesse? Not the case big-guy!

Re: Zorn's next fullback!

I respect your opinion(not your avatar) and feel everyone should be objective. Sure Sellars had an off year last year, but goddamn he is a horse. He is definitely a core Skin and can do it all. I still get chills watching the clip of that Lion he trucked last year. Thanks for your insight but he is here to stay in my opinion. Then again if I was so smart I would own the team and Danny would be selling beer at my stadium.

Re: Zorn's next fullback!

Even if we wanted a fullback to replace Sellers the draft would be a better route.

Peyton Hillis from Arkansas would be a great fit here, awesome blocker and is a great receiver out of the bakfield. If Zorn feels like we need to make a change at FB look for us to pick up this guy in the 2nd /3rd round. He's going to star as a WC FB somewhere in this league.

Re: Zorn's next fullback!

Nothing wrong with Sellers. He's very athletic for his size, he will fit in just fine with the new system.

Re: Zorn's next fullback!

IMO, Seller's weakness has been pass blocking, which doesn't make him a good TE. He had some good games pass blocking at the end of the season, but it's not what he does best.

In the WCO how much do FBs need to pass block? seems not too much as the dropbacks are shorter. He can catch, run & run block. Just because you run a 'spread offense' doesn't mean the FB isn't asked to lead block. What did Mack Strong do all of those years in Seattle.

While I don't see Sellers losing his starting FB job, I think it's possible that his playing time will diminish some as they use more 3-4 reciever sets & only 1 back.

Re: Zorn's next fullback!

apparently zorn would like to bring in another fullback. and weaver seems to be a logical and viable choice.

but mike sellers is the MAN! we need to be using him more, not less. excellent blocker. underused ball carrier. underused receiver.

i remember early this season, against the lions, when he caught like a 30 yard pass and then bowled over kenoy kennedy. i don't recall seeing anything more than a 5 yarder sent his way the rest of the season. and that is a crime!

Re: Zorn's next fullback!

I don't think he said anything about Sellers not being a core guy. He never mentioned gettng rid of Sellers, he simply was implying that Sellers may be small for the position and not able to make the holes a true FB would make. I'm guessing this is what was meant. I love Sellers...especially when he bowls people over but blocking a 300 pound man away from a hole and running over a 180-200 pound man are two different stories.

I don't mind him being a FB or a TE but last yr I wondered why sometimes he was used a FB especially on the goal line when we went nowhere. Why could we not make the hole or a bigger person to generate the hole? I'm sure Zorn will figure out how best to use him.

Now I'm really confused.

Re: Zorn's next fullback!

I don't know about Sellers being too small for the position, I was just saying that he may not be as fast nor is his hands a good fit the position. Just watch some Weaver highlights at seahawks.com and I'm telling you he makes that offense run smooth just as Morris does at rb.
