he gets slammed just because he asks to be more versatile? "who does he think he is, we already have a full back!!!! >:( " haha...s**t is sad.
look he is just trying to make himself more valuable to the team anyway he can...if that means showing that he can help out at fullback, then that is perfect...because you never know how the season goes.
if he can fill in for Miller...fill in for certain plays designed for Walker (they are about the same size)....and come in at RB when needed.... and of course continue his SP play....then he will earn himself a spot on this team....or at least for sure earn himself a spot on another team.
sure, he needs to show that he can hit the hole and get a couple of yards on 3rd and short situations....if that is what the team asks from him.
if Dixon and Brandon both play to their best...Dixon would get the spot, based on versatility...if Dixon and Brandon look the same or average...then again Dixon would get the spot of Jacobs. If Brandon out plays Dixon...then Dixon looks bad in other areas...then he doesn't deserve to be on the team.
