With our lack of a running game, is it time we give Lo Neal a call?

    Can we face the facts, our running game was just plain better with Lorenzo Neal than it was without..... Ok so he cant catch, but he can still block and plus he was a leader in the locker room..... Something that we are clearly missing...


    Just asking.:icon_toast:

    The Raiders cut him, the Ravens cut him, we cut him. No other team has picked him up, whats that tell you.

    I remember when AJ Smith said that he wanted to run the Chargers organization like like the Patriots. That way we can have players come and go and still be competitive each year. Yet he never takes a chance on older proven veteran players like the patriots do.

    Neal would be a great add to this team. So would Brian Dawkins or Rodney Harrison (who Schottenhemier said was washed up). Instead AJ chooses to keep an injury prone, regularly inactive Buster Davis on the roster. Heck cut Tolbert, Whitehurst, any one of those scrubs to make room for Lo Neal.

    I think we could have got some good use of him in the 07 season (because the Ravens did) but I don't know about now.

    PR makes me not miss Fouts as much as I used to....

    And yes your right fans miss players all the time....However, it's hard denying that our running game has went to **** since we lost LoNeal and adopted Norv's singleback sets.....

    If Neal was on this team from the beginning of the season...


    We'd still be 2-2.

    Hell, I really miss watching Bambi running wild in the secondary of the enemy. He could teach these girls that call themselves receivers a thing or two about toughness and getting open. :abq2:

    How about Big Hands Johnson should we give him a call? No lets call freaking Marty and he can come and tell all us fans some sob story about some fans and a gleam and how we are a team. Lets get behind this team and deal with it for freaking sakes!!!

    We're scoring 25+ pts per game.

    If we could stop the run... we'd be scoring 35+ per game.


    With our inability to stop the run, it is time for Travis Johnson to help this team.

    LoNeal would agree.

    The play I miss the most is the quick handoff to LoNeal on 3rd and short.

    It seemed to work almost every time. :abq1:

    Not all the time.
    Example: I like Brees but Rivers has given me no reason to miss him.

    We don't need Lo, we need some offensive lineman.

    It tells me the guy is too old to play any more. But, that will never stop some people from wanting to bring these fossils back. Personally, I think we should get Jim Brown. I don't think he's playing for anyone right now.
