    that won't work until Lynch proves he can run the ball in and outside. The reason it worked for WP was that he was always a threat to run first; Lynch is going to have a hard time finding the field for awhile, and much like the hester bubble screen or reverse, having him take a pitch for a run just to throw will get sniffed out if he's not on the field enough to show he's more likely to run then throw.

    I like the many facets he may bring, Half Back options, Reverses, Punt team Blocker for trick plays, Holder for FG.s., probably a few others. I think he still needs to beat out Ford as a regular RB though, Maybe they would keep his as special teams guy if the returner can solidify another position WR or CB. Still not decided who the returner will be. Lynch offers great excitement and flexibility but will probably be stolen if we try to get him to the practice squad, so I believe he needs to beat Ford out to make the team, He is a UDFA for a reason and hopefully he can make it.

    Rumor has it that Trestman told Lynch's agent that the Bears have multiple places to put Lynch, and he should sign with us. They simply put him down as RB for record keeping, expect them to use Lynch in some different positions that will throw us and opposing D's off guard.

    So your saying Lynch could play RB or SS? Or am I misreading and misunderstanding you?

    RB, TE, WR......

    Sounds like Soul says he could be a SS...

    A true Renaissance Man who might be able to actually play both sides of the ball?

    Probably one of the most important/true posts in the thread. The dude can have all the potential in the world and be a mismatch nightmare in theory but until he can make teams respect him in the run game all points are moot.

    I like Lynch as much as the next guy, but lets be realistic here....he will have a tough time just making the roster. Unless he can prove that he has worth somewhere (and granted, there are alot of "somewheres" for him) he won't make the 53 man roster.

    In order for him to make it he will have to beat out Fales/Palmer for QB3 Ford/Carey for RB3, Onborn for TE2, Vereen for SS2?

    I just don't think thats very likely, I just don't see him on the 53 man roster barring multiple injuries in one position.


    Just a little reality check...

    that's why I said Ford might be on the chopping block, they obviously didn't feel comfortable w/him on the offense last year so he might be more easily replaced them some think

    I think his main mission is to beat Ford for RB3. If he can secure a spot as the third running back then everything else falls into place. My gut says no TE or S for this guy, I think he's going to be designated for being an offensive mismatch. He's got the same 40 yard time as Carey so the speed is there if we're happy with Carey we can be happy with Lynch. He finds the hole well and it'll be a change up to be a RB rather than a QB but if he can provide a bruising runner type of RB for us then he'll be a great part of this trio we have in place. He's got the strength and he's quick as hell with his feet, so he can find the hole, get to it quickly, and then power on down the field. He'll be an asset on special teams as a blocker who can throw it or run it on fakes and he's got the bulk for it so if he can show he can do that I think that's where some of his versatility will lie. Then you add in his throwing ability he's a great emergency QB if our top two were to go down.

    Here's a couple runs that I think show what kind of power running he can bring to this team.
