Daily Craig: Fullback isn't fully back

Among football history types the likes of Jim Brown, Larry Csonka, and Franco Harris are considered great running backs. Except they were all FULLBACKS. The positioning of where the fullback lines up and the definition of his duty has changed . But most of us now refer to fullbacks as guys who either don't exist or just take up a roster spot. The T formation (the one I lined up for my less than thrilling high school career) has the FULLBACK as the last guy in the formation. He now lines up in front of the Running back or as is most correctly called, THE TAIL BACK.

In the games first years, the FULLBACK was also the punter or the drop kicker. A rule came into being in the early 1900's called "Running into the fullback". Now it's just , well you know. For those who want good trivia let this one fly. In 2008 the leading rusher for the Ravens was Le'Ron McClain. He was their FULLBACK.
The Texans have a fullback. He is Jay Prosch of Auburn. He is in his 3rd season with Houston and is virtually unknown.

If Prosch is to become the next Le"Ron McClain he had best hurry. In 33 games with the Texans PROSCH has carried the ball just 7 times. He carried once Sunday and gained 2 yards. On his career he is averaging 5 yards per carry. That sounds decent, but it's only a total of 35 yards. He is 2 yards behind my career total. He does do what FULLBACKS DO these days. He blocks. He blocks really big guys.
