    Who else thought about Lawrence Taylor on the kick block team in the original Tecmo Bowl when they read that? :lol:

    one of the worst ideas i've seen in a while...playing your top 5 pick on specials against guys who barely make the 53...good way to lose the guy...hells no

    It's my understanding that they want him blocking field goals, not on coverage or blocking.

    well that's no big deal...and a no brainer...i guess given the length...but i don't want to see him covering kicks...i know he can do it and it looked great on oregon tape but unless he blows at everything else there's no way i'd use him on kick returns or coverage...no way

    That was my understanding as well. I don't think they will ever consider him on kick and punt coverages, just want to take advantage of his size to block kicks.
