    I never saw this thread. Both were/are very good at what they did/do. Strong was great for the Seahawks. He along with Walter Jones and Steve Hutchinson helped Alexander over-achieve and win MVP some how. Not trying to turn this into a thread about how over-rated Alexander is, but he wouldn't have ever achieved what he did without Strong in front of him every play.

    The same could probably be said for LT running behind Neal. I'd imagine the majority of people would say Neal, but just look at how bad Alexander got when Strong had injury issues his two last seasons. Both Neal and Strong are great at what they do.

    Old..

    I've watched Strong and Neal a lot in my life and both are amazing fullbacks.

    Out of the two, I'd probably pick Neal though

    LT is also better than Alexander so without Neal it wouldn't be exactly the same but I'd have to go with Neal, both are great FB though

    I would say that both were pretty even. Neither brought very much to the game other than straight ahead blocking. Both were very big, bulky, not very bouncy, thats why Lorenzo Neal was cut from the Chargers. Andrew Pinnock did just as good of a job and provided more versatility.

    Thats because they are "throwback fullbacks" meaning they don't run the ball, instead they blow through the line blocking. Its a dying bread of FB though. The bold is straight BS, they are a couple of the very best blocking FB's to ever play the game.

    i think the only real throwback FBs left are richardson and maybe if he develops properly owen schmitt the rookie for seattle ( although they already have the best receiving FB in the league today in weaver who had 39 catches in like 11 games )

    because you made it seem like they weren't anything special because they did not run the ball.

    I was mearly pointing our that they didn't do anything well other than straight-forward run blocking. Don't take what I say out of context and make me waste time replying to this nonsense when what I said was factual.

    dude this is a comparison of two of the best fullbacks to play the game. Its their job to block, not run. Thats like saying all Jerry Rice, Steve Largent, Marvin Harrison could do is run a route or catch a ball. Or all Barry Sanders could do is run the ball. Its their job and they were the best at it, those are the true facts.

    I don't know why you keep harping on this. They were great straight-line FB's, I was just merely pointing out that they did nothing else and weren't very versatile. Those are the true facts, get over it.
