    I'm trying to understand why Konrad doesn't have the ball thrown his way more often and why he never runs ball:confused:

    Since he's been drafted, Wanny & Gailey always said during training camp that Konrad will be a biggest part of our offense and he's not... I know he's been injured recently but still...

    Maybe it's because of Chan's playbook???? i dunno???

    I like this guy and i'm sure he can be a threat...

    I have a feeling he will be available (not protected) for the Texans next year and they'll sign him....and then.... :( be a great player...

    what's your opinion on that?

    Konrad might touch the ball once or twice a game so it has to be Chan's playbook.

    Remember Daryl Johnston at Dallas - that is Chan's idea of a FB: block and catch. But we have never thrown enough to Konrad on 1st down especially. Personally, I would rather see us go 2 TE's and put Weaver in there - he's looked like an excellent receiver.

    thanks Dolphan39...

    i saw that today too... Marvez is right on the Konrad being kind of a similar back like Smith. But like you said, Konrad is not enough part of the offense in the passing game and that's a waste of talent (...and a waste of 2nd round pick since we pick Dyer).

    QuebecFinsfan...................


    I've been saying this all season now about Rob. It's a major waste of talent not to get him more touches on offense!


    :monkey: Chan not calling more plays designed to get Rob some touches.

    Don't forget

    that the run blocking is bad enough w/the FB blocking so handing off the Konrad in the 2 back set makes no sense; but we should be getting Konrad on a LB and throwing to him on 1st and 2nd down. :yell:

    i think if the fins .............

    mix the passing with a full house backfield, especially since chan doesn't ever use it, it will confuse the defense so bad, anything will work! :D

    I would rather see us go 2 TE's and throw the ball to Jed Weaver than Konrad anyway.

    Hopefully it is Chambers on the deep post. OG on the fly and McKnight on the slant. :D
