Some big B for LT.

Postby Guttpuppy » Sat Mar 01, 2003 10:02 am

Blocking that is:from TSN March 1, 8:52 a.m.
The Chargers signed Lorenzo Neal to a three-year, $4.5 million contract Friday.

I thought I had saw this on ESPN's ticker this A.M.Looks to be true.Tomlinson will now have,arguably,the best blocking fullback in the game paving the way for him.I'd say that ups his already high FF status.

The Chargers cut third-down specialist Terrell Fletcher this week. The move opens the door for LaDainian Tomlinson to stay on the field in third down situations.

Known more for his slashing running style, Tomlinson’s copious receiving skills are overlooked by many. Last year, Tomlinson snared an insane 79 receptions, 19th-most for players of any position. Yet, in third-and-long situations, Fletcher often replaced Tomlinson. With Fletcher out of the picture, Tomlinson should see action in every situation.

If there’s one thing we know about Marty Schottenheimer’s coaching style, it’s that he loves a workhorse back. In addition to his 79 receptions, Tomlinson had 379 carries last year—second most in the league. His 458 total touches led the NFL

Agree.
I couldn't believe he was released.
The Titans made exactly the same mistake, and Eddddiee suffered.
L.T., if he wasn't already there, will top my draft list in August.
ChaChing. $ Money!

I dont know if this will increase LT's ranking on the rb list but it should help his production I would expect a couple hundred more yrds and at least 3-4 more TDs

Actually he wasn't released, he was a free agent. Looks like he got as far from Cincy as he could.
