Neal a good pickup by Ravens

I like the addition of Lorenzo Neal. He has been one of the game's best fullbacks during the last decade, and he's a warrior. I'm not sure how much he has left, but he always seems to play well. He is aggressive at the point of attack and also can be a factor catching a quick pass out of the backfield.

The Ravens are going to need a quality fullback because they are going to have to pound the ball to win games. They can't rely on any of their quarterbacks. Also, if Le'Ron McClain gets into shape, the Ravens might be able to wear teams down with McClain running behind Neal. It's a gamble, but one worth taking. For 2008, the Ravens' formula for success won't change from previous seasons because they are limited as far as offensive talent, and they have a young offensive line.
