The more it keeps popping up, the better it seems. The Ravens' running back-by-committee approach is appealing, and should be effective.

McClain / Neal remind me slightly of Jamal and Sam Gash .
I really like the pick -up of Neal and am somewhat surprised at how under the radar that move has been .

Jamal had subtle moves as well as power. He was better-in his prime, which is well over-than any of these guys. But I agree that these two guys are good, as is Rice and Neal, and McGahee and Neal. Neal is the one constant, and my guess is he is going to be a great blocker and a good runner himself. If the O line can consistently open holes, the Ravens are going to have one hell of a ground game. Which should make things alot easier for Flacco.(Not to mention that our offense is already looking more innovative. I mean they did things the first week that they never did before. And they worked!)

Go Ravens. Wipe out Cleveland, which is, by the way, the US's second most boring city...(next to St Louis).Cleveland is only dull, and lifeless and full of guys who say things like, "Hey, hot enuff fer ya, har har?" St Louis is full of Bible Beaters, and other religious morons. KKK'ers thrive in St Louis. The third worst city in all of Us is Cincy, full of old Nazis, and their kin. Cleveland is benign, the other two melanoma.

Wow, how does someone follow up the missive from "Maui Guy" about St Louis, Cleveland and Cincy?

I thought this was about running backs...

I was pumped when Ravens drafted R Rice. I hope all the backs get lots of carries and yards, which will = wins.

And Maui Guy, good luck in LA, I am sure your outlook will serve you well in that "melting pot".

You left out every major city in the state of Pennsylvania from your list. Or the entire state for that matter. I work there, take it from me, if you come to an intersection, one way is PA, the other, a dark desolate highway....take your chances on the dark desolate highway. Oh, and to make this comment football relevant.... Go Flacco!!!!

minicamps, schminicamps. I expect to see a lot of McGahee, if he really is healthy.

I'm assuming you have no life. I also assume you will keep reposting the same exact thing until you get some sort of response. You suck. There, now you can go troll some other message board.

I think it is a great plan. Taking the heat off Flacco , simplifing the O line responsibility and keeping 3 pairs of legs fresh late in games and in December.. all we need is for the D to step up with our young secondary. Harbaugh is learning quickly.
