You really do diminish my warpath experience and I'm sure that of a number of other folks. The first step to redemption is recognition and any improvements you can make would be appreciated.

Re: Darrel Young - Rising Star?

Darrel Young has quietly developed into a great FB.
I like it.
The other pleasant surprise for me is the run blocking of our new TE's. They are not adding anything to the passing game, but they do not have to. Logan Paulsen and Niles Paul do such a great job of shifting and blocking both in the run game and in pass protection, it confuses the opposing defenses. I don t think it is a coincidence that once Paulsen, Paul and Darrel Young got used playing together a few game after the injury to Fred Davis, the team improved.
I will go a step further to say the injury to Fred Davis was a blessing in disguise because the team found its identity (running team) by increasing the playing time of Paulsen, Paul and Young. While Fred Davis is a great pass catching TE, his run blocking was lacking in motivation.
Having played LB I know it makes for a long day when the offense you face has physical run blocking TE's. It takes you out of your game when you have to worry about a TE or FB that can knock you back. Say what you want about it being a pass happy QB driven league, when the playoffs starts and it gets cold and windy (bad weather), the teams that can play great defense and run the ball usually excel. The 49ers and Houston Texans went far in the playoffs last year with this despite Texans playing their 3rd string QB and 49ers playing Alex Smith.

Re: Darrel Young - Rising Star?

Besides Kuhn for Green Bay, who are the other notable fullbacks in the NFC. I think Toby Gearhart has, largely, been a disappointment.

It's funny. After last year ended I thought Young had no chance of sticking around. Now I'm starting to wonder if he could eventually turn into a pro bowl level fullback.
Darrell Young= Tom Rathman= future pro bowl fullback.


Young is good. The Redskins don't throw to the fullback much and they call his number much to run the football, but when they do, Young is a good a fullback as any in the NFL.

Hynoski for the Giants has played as well as DY. I don't the Kuhn is as good as either of the NFC East backs.

Re: Darrel Young - Rising Star?

The thing that's really impressive about Young is how quickly he gets to the second level and his ability to block DEs. In several plays last week he bitched a LB, fell down and then got up to give RG3 a check down passing lane to throw to.

no way. i think you guy talking about him and kuhn only even know their names because they catch a lot of passes int he flat. young is doing the dirty work and paving the way for an aewsome rushing attack. i dont exactly fear the packers running game and the giants seem to have more success out of a one back set anyway.

Re: Darrel Young - Rising Star?

Hynoski has been stout. There was a pre-game schtick on him, I think, and it was pretty impressive. But he was pretty much a non-factor on Sunday.

Think you missed what I said. I think the best two in the NFC are Hynoski ( nyg) and Young. I said Kuhn was not as good as either of these guys.
