    Thing is like any 3rd string RB he has to contribute on special teams. And I mean normal special teams not any special packages made for him to throw or fake to throw.

    If he can show talent as a RB and if he can do normal special teams stuff then he's a great get. No point having a bit of throwing ability if you can't do the initial job.

    When they said he'd probably be an RB for us, I thought that he could be used like Payton, in that play where Walter would fake the run and pass the ball for TD's. We saw him do that over and over again (I think 9 times over his career). It almost always went for 6.

    I love the fact that Green Bay made him an offer as a QB, and he elected to come to the Bears (his childhood team) as a RB instead.

    Yep, he's a prefect fit for a guy to run a Wildcat formation deep in the red zone. He has the power to run it in himself, he can draw the defense to him and pitch to the trailing back or he can throw so when Trestman says he can think of ten ways to use him he's not just blowing smoke up his butt.

    Emery and this coaching staff love positional versatility and here's just one more guy who has it. He can run, pass and catch and all from a RB spot. We haven't thrown a HB option pass since Walter was playing but with Lynch in the backfield a defense would have to consider that possibility. I like good football players above all else and this kid seems to be a very good one.

    Tonight I was watching the '85 NFC championship game against the LA Rams and Summerall and John Madden were talking about this facet of Walter's game. The defenses hated it because they had to be prepared to defend that pass from Payton. It was just one more edge that Payton had.

    The kid is 6' and 217lbs of muscle. Look at his Combine vids. He's not built like most QBs you'll see. Some have projected him as a SS or if he could add 15lbs a WLB. In his interview he acknowledged a need to play STeams and he's more than willing to do that too.

    He wants to play NFL football and he wants to play in Chicago. He's motivated and that's what I like best. How many time has a small, slow white kid from a mid sized college conference made a name for himself running and passing like he has and been a top candidate for a Heisman?

    He's been running uphill against the odds his entire career and yet he's succeeded big time. I think the kid will do whatever it takes to keep in playing football and winning games. It's in his blood.

    On offense it's all about having "weapons" and Lynch is the kind of player who could become a very effective weapon just because of his versatility. Most NFL coaches won't see that in him but coming from the CFL where they have a lot of players like that I think Trestman does see the possibilities. It's all about scoring points and this is a kid who knows a lot of ways to put the ball into the endzone. He's already proven that. I don't give a crap that he's a small slow white guy. He knows how to win football games and that's what I care most about.

    If he does make it as a RB. Over under on how many plays Tresty holds out before throwing a HB pass? :rofl2:

    LOL, we may have to do it by how many games. If it was up to me I'd use it to catch the Pack with their pants down and embarrass them throwing to a wide open receiver for the winning TD. There's a certain poetry to doing it that way for the very first time.
