My hats off to Leach. What a warrior.

i was so happy for him when he got that touchdown

the fullback might be a dying position around the league but thankfully they still use them in baltimore, where old style hard-nosed football rules.

Everything in sports is cyclical. The fullback position will be prevalent again in 5 or so years.

A good fullback is still key to a strong rushing attack. Obviously we know what Leach brings to the table for us, but also look at a guy like Jerome Felton blocking for Adrian Peterson in Minnesota. He was a key component of Peterson's huge season.

The reason fullbacks are dying out is because fewer teams are willing to rely on their rushing attacks as their bread and butter offensively. If we see a shift back towards the ground and pound style of offense, fullbacks will be important yet again.

He makes a case for being the most denominate player in the league. He's head and shoulders above anyone else, and tbh, he performs his duties better than any other person on the league.

If he was a quarterback say he'd be MVP year in year out, if he was still as dominate.
