Fullbacks are a bit of a dying breed, but the position still deserves respect.
Just ask Kyle Juszczyk.
The NFL announced on Monday the All-Decade Team for the 2010s, but there were no fullbacks listed.
The 49ers had four representatives from the team, two current players and two former: Running back Frank Gore, tackle Joe Staley, linebacker Patrick Willis and cornerback Richard Sherman.
Juice appeared to be unimpressed with the lack of fullback representation:
I guess no fullbacks played this decade...— Kyle Juszczyk (@JuiceCheck44) April 6, 2020
Football is a brutal sport on the body, but especially so on fullbacks, who often have to do a little bit of everything on offense to help their team win.
There’s nothing glamorous about the position, but Juszczyk was imperative to get the 49ers to Super Bowl LIV, as he was utilized both as a blocker and a receiver. He also became a key piece in many things head coach Kyle Shanahan did offensively. His teammates mirrored similar sentiments.
Now, it's just a matter of getting proper representation.
