So THAT'S why we released Brandstater...

So we traded picks to draft Brandstater so we could release him and acquire a FB from...the free agent pool. Got it.

isn't this the guy that everyone in the armed services hates because he opted out of his commitment after naval academy?

nice try.... Denver got rid of Brandstater because he is not as good as you think he is. I will send a memo to the front office to make sure they consult with you before any future decisions are made.

I was actually curious as to why this team never brought on another fullback. It seems to be an important part of the plan (especially this year) and we only had one on roster, and he's a converted LB. Why anyone would b**** about this is beyond me.

On top of that Wiki says in 2006 Eckel was charged with two counts of assault-and-battery and one charge of sexual assault, charges were dropped

This guy was the two time MVP of the Army Navy game. His dismissal from the Navy is not that unusual with pro caliber athletes from the service academies any more. He was involved in an "incident" in the bar district of Annapolis. Been down that road a couple of times myself. The sexual part is definately a concern, but Josh has a history with this guy. If he is comfortable bringing him in, who the frick am I to argue.

Navy fullbacks do a hell of a lot of work out of the Flexbone offense.

The dude should have some skills.


Oh crap, I just solved the puzzle. The flexbone offense is a triple option zone read system with a big ass fullback, a gifted running back, and a running quarterback. The pieces are falling in place for the flexbone to hit the nfl.

What do we call it, the "Pony Bone?"

It's all too clear now!

Guess where else they run the flexbone offense?

Tick...tick...tick...

Georgia Tech - sound familiar again?

The pieces are falling in place.

You cant "opt out" of service after the academy. They give waivers to people like pro athletes and people who make enough money to buy out their contract right after college, which is very few people.

Nevertheless, this kid is a douchebag. He was involuntarily separated from the Navy, and in my experience with friends and other people I knew who were involuntarily separated, the vast majority of the time it usually involves marijuana/cocaine use or mental conditions like depression or PTSD.

I hate to bring *his* name up, but there is another FB I would have rather had.

To be fair, I did plenty of things while in the Navy that would have gotten me kicked out had I gotten caught. Most people in the Navy do. It's pretty rigid.
