Move over, Refrigerator. Here are some other guys who are unlikely to carry the ball—but who could.
?Robert ( Cuisinart) Pratt, the Seattle Seahawks, 6'4", 250-pound guard. Scored 20 TDs as a high school fullback. One season, averaged 16 yards on four kickoff returns for the Baltimore Colts. "My style? Absolutely no moves," he says.
?Bill (The Stove) Bain, the Los Angeles Rams, 6'4", 290-pound tackle. The Rams practice a goal-line play with Bain as the tight end on the left side. Says Bain, "Heck, I've been the Refrigerator in practice for years. They just won't throw me the ball in a game." After Sunday's 28-14 loss to San Francisco, the Rams just may reconsider.
?Bob (Microwave) Golic, Cleveland's 6'2", 260-pound nosetackle from Notre Dame. Former high school fullback. "I'm famous for a two-yard touchdown, scored powering right up the back of the left tackle," he says. "The offensive line quickly got up a petition to put me on defense."
?Randy (Egg Beater) White, Cowboys, 6'4", 260-pound defensive tackle. Played fullback his freshman year at Maryland. Says Dallas safety Dextor Clinkscale, "He'd be scary. Unlike running backs, Randy would look for contact."
?Curtis (Kitchen Sink) Rouse, Vikings, 6'3", 318-pound tackle. Offensive coordinator Jerry Burns says, "We're going to put Darrin Nelson on Rouse's back. Instead of a halfback, we'll have a piggyback."
?Then there's Guy McIntyre, San Francisco's 6'3", 271-pound guard, who lined up as a blocking back in last year's NFC Championship game on the famed Angus play. "Perry isn't an Angus," McIntyre says. "An Angus is more versatile." He adds, "I'd make a great Waring Blendor."
