DT Earl Mitchell being used as a fullback

Post by JMP on Mon Aug 17, 2015 11:33 am


At the University of Arizona, he was a sledgehammer. Mitchell played in the backfield and on special teams his first two years in Tucson. His ferocious, open-field hits were the stuff of legends.

Eight years later, he might get a chance to do it again. The Dolphins don’t have a natural fullback, and have mulled using Mitchell as one on a part-time basis — particularly when they have the ball near the goal line (both their own and their opponent’s).

Both Mitchell and coach Joe Philbin were predictably tight-lipped about the possibility Sunday.


But this is no stunt. The Dolphins have given Mitchell offensive reps since the spring, but only when practices were closed to the public and media.

I wish we just had a real FB so we didn't have to play these games, but at least it will add some excitement to an otherwise boring team.

I guess as far as the running game is concerned the Fins' attitude regarding Mitchel is, if he can't stop it he might as well do it. (Rim shot.)

But seriously, it's like they don't realize it's the 21st century and it's literally impossible to keep secrets anymore.
