They had to get somebody signed quick and get them working in the system, learning the plays and all that. Could not afford to wait 2 or 3 weeks and if Moreno went down, now your in real scramble mode. Better to have got this guy now, let him learn the plays for next few weeks and if KM goes out, you have a guy who at least knows some of the plays.
He doesn't need a great deal of reps to be capable of being used in short yardage/goal line situations, which is how he'd be used until he knows the playbook or he is needed in a more prominent role.

bet Hester is not active the rest of the season unless one of our backs gets injured. Or... Ball keeps screwing up on the few opportunities he gets.

You would think Hester could be of more value than Gronk pretty quickly. I don't recall a single play Gronk has made all season.

Well there is a reason Gronk is a FB and a reason Hester a RB. Willis got injured for the rest of the season, hence a reason to look for a healthy body encase we lose another back. I don't remember us losing a FB... do you?

I get your point... but if Gronk hasn't gotten a play while being knowing the full playbook, what makes you think that Hester will get here and suddenly we start using the FB?

I still think he will stay inactive unless someone gets injured.

I have no reason to believe Hester was signed here to be a fullback. I assume he's a bigger option that can gain tough yards, pass protect, and grab some balls out of the backfield (hillisesque, in this case, the white-to-white comparison is valid) while contributing on special teams. He may not be activated, but his signing is directly correlated with the fact that we lost a bigger inbetween-the-tackles back.

Yeah, I think you're right. It will be weird to see Hester in the backfield. I wonder if he brings anything at all to the table. It will be interesting for sure. I doubt he's better than Lance Ball though, as much as it pains me to say that.

And I don't really listen to Cold Play. However being white and learning white people listen to cold play, I am going to explore the band further.

He's never scored a rushing TD....and averages 3.2 yards per carry....and considering 59 of his career 90 yards rushing came on 12 carries (1-12 vs. NE and 11-47 vs. DEN) he averages 1.9 yards per attempt on all his other carries.

food for thought.....

What is funny about Hester the only good thing I can find about him is his SP teams play. So why keep Ball around? Why not drop Ball for Slaton.

ask dream how many times I banned his sniveling ass.. for that matter how many times he has been banned here.. where I am not a mod.. I would think folks would get it by now..

That will say all there is to say about why he snipes at me.. trying to get back at me for doing my job as a mod..

That's about my take as well. Although, I do belive he'll be active going forward. He's a good Special Teams player so he'll help us out there right a way. I read an article where it said that Fox and Co. put him through the paces on pass protection...and that he past with flying colors. They said he's extremely smart and picks stuff up very quickly. For picking up a guy off the scrap heap during the second half of the season...I think this kid can actually contribute and help us win games. If that turns out to be the case...another feather in Elway's cap!
