Remember when Tony Hunt seemed happy about the fullback opportunity? When he was saying things like:
"Studying the position isn't really the thing. Playing running back, you know the fullback position..."
"Pass blocking is the same. It's not like I have to learn too much more. For the most part, you know a lot of the fullback [responsibility] from being a running back. I would say it's just the run blocking."
"Most things are the same. You just know it, because you're in the same meeting room. It's not really much of a change . . . Pass plays, you're still doing the same thing on every pass play. The only thing that changes is the run-blocking, and it's not that hard. The guy's going to come to you. It's more about just wanting to do it..."
"I just want to play," Hunt said yesterday. "That's about it. Just from playing last year, you understand that Brian's going to play [at running back], and there's not really much room for a lot of other guys to play. You just know that you just want to play football. You want to get in the game. So any time they're telling you they want to put you on the football field, that's a good thing."
Let us know if you see that guy around anywhere, because now #29 is saying things like this:
"It's kind of frustrating trying to pick up a position this late in the preseason," said Hunt. "It's like 'All right. You've been doing this for a year and a half, but now we're going to try something different.' You have to start all over and get on the same page as guys who have been in there doing it. So, you know, it is a little frustrating..."
"I've never done this, so I have no clue" how long it will take, Hunt said. "I've only been doing this for a week and a half . . . It would be like me asking you how long it would take you to go be an astronaut."
Come on, man. You can do this. Just keep blowing it out on special teams and stay low on those linebackers.
