Moran Norris

The FB position is going into history. We sure didn't use Norris much the second half of the season. It might be better to have a more universal RB next year. Some teams even put a guard or blocking T.E. in to lead block on short yardage. In fact Delanie Walker would be a good player for that role...Oh that's right, some teams call that guy an "H" Back! Yes, Walker would make an excellent H Back! He can block, catch, and run the ball. Norris will stay...Sing still has a dream about a power running game, BUT wait, didn't the Skins, under Gibbs, have a kick ass power running game with John Riggins and the Hogs? Wait a minute...the Skins had a great O-Line, we don't. Maybe we should draft a R.T. in the Draft so that we can make use of Norris or Walker...but wait...........!

I do like that Miller guy. He gives value on special teams and can catch out of the backfield like Rathman and Bar None used to do.


Bring back the dreads of glory!!!!!!! The Zak will destroy all and lead us to the golden land!!!!!!

Norris, like Gore, didnt have an opening to take on blockers. Instead, since our oline was horrible for the most part of the season, Norris would run into a wall and couldnt find space to lead block.. I dont think Norris is anything special at FB, although Gore has a good relationship with him and I think thats nice to have with HB and your FB. Just my observation..

No please
we need a fullback that doesn't give away the play when he comes in. the problem with norris is that he isn't versatile at all. teams know when #44 hits the field it's a Gore run up the middle.

it goes w/o being said that norris sucked this season, leonard weaver would have been a perfect signing.
Moran Norris was signed while Weaver was still available!!! Our front office sucks!!! Moran Norris is a joke!
we could probably use that fb we signed fron Notre Dame as more of a pass catcher who could probably do a decent job of blocking for Gore.....not like our OL or FB helped a lot over the years but this way we can have a pass catching threat as well

Norris needs to be evaluated on his performance and not on his relationship with Gore. Bill Walsh released players past there prime.

Brit Miller definately needs a chance. Preseason or not, you cant deny a fullback with hands like that. Could be a Rathman protege.
Gore is a great guy, but he really shouldn't be involved in personnel decisions. Norris is his friend, but he just doesn't have it anymore. Time to move on.
