I love me some Cricket (i.e. Deon Anderson), but can anyone name a better pure blocking fullback since Moose Johnston than Lorenzo Neal? At 37 he's in great shape and would consistently lock down one defender every run play. Emmitt owes a great deal to Moose, because Johnston would secure one defender and leave only one for Emmitt to get by, which he almost always did.
Felix Jones would would benefit greatly from Neal's presence; just one cut and he's off to the races. Barber's runs wouldn't be so entertaining because instead of stiff-arming 6 players, he'd only have 5 to put down (the B.S. "Marion Barber Rule" may hinder his barbarity). I'd say Julius Jones could have benefitted from a lockdown fullback, but he always seemed to trip over the hashmarks or a piece of hot dog wrapper that blew onto the field, the guy ran like an obese opera singer... but I digress. Give Cricket some time to season and bring in a perrenial All-Pro fullback on the cheap!!
