Subject: Re: Pats sign FB McCrary!
a quick quote by McCrary:
"To me, knocking (a defender) out of the hole and then having a
runner have a big play because of it, that's really satisfying,"
McCrary said. "I know my place. I know what pays the bills. It's
blocking. That's what I do."
I guess his stats back that up: he has only 22 carries for 28 yards
and one touchdown in six years, and has never run the ball more than
eight times in a season. He did not carry the ball in 1999 despite
starting 15 games for the Chargers. He also has 103 career receptions
for 586 yards.
But if we don't run Smith between the tackles,
what good is a blocking only FB? Especially at
$750,000 a year.
