Pouting in San Diego

L.T. proclaims he's "the best back"
Posted by Tom Curran on September 2, 2009 9:13 AM ET (PFT)

The fact that he has turned 30 doesn't mean LaDainian Tomlinson's too old to engage in a little "neener, neener, neener."

Speaking to Sam Farmer of the Los Angeles Times, Tomlinson flashed jealousy about a recent Sporting News article in which Jim Brown interviewed Adrian Peterson.


One question posed by Brown suggests that Tomlinson is overrated.

The article, in which Brown says he believes Peterson is "the most complete back he's seen in a long time," was given to Tomlinson by a Chargers staffer.

"I was sitting there reading it thinking, 'Wow,' " Tomlinson told Farmer. "The difference with me is you can put me out on that field and there will be nothing I can't do. I won't have to come off the field. Adrian has to come off sometimes on third down. Running routes, he's still not there yet. Great downhill runner, powerful, fast, all that stuff. . . .

"But anything on that field you want me to do -- throw it, block -- I can do it. That's what I pride myself on is not having any weaknesses. And that's what makes me the best back."

It's a predictable response from Tomlinson. In 2006, he was being touted as the heir apparent to Brown. Two injury-marred seasons later, and Brown's prodding Peterson to call L.T. overrated while they sip lemonade on the veranda.

Given the pride Tomlinson takes in his craft, making sure L.T. read all about it was, in the short-term, a wise motivational move by the Chargers.

But if it causes him to push too hard from September through December, leaving him used up and/or injured come the playoffs, the smarter move might have been to put the thing in a box marked "Do not open until Christmas."

I understand that, but chances are with a long of only six yards that LT would break one decent run in eight carries to even it up. Still isn't good anyway.

Explain to me exactly what it is that makes you think LJ is going to have a better season than LT. I'm pretty sure we've had this bet the last 2 years running and you haven't even come close.

LT is at 100% health going into the season, which he wasn't last year.

The guy has one "down" season, where he still puts up over 1000 yards, 10 Rushing TDs, and 50 receptions.

If it were anybody else in the league, that would have been considered a solid season.

I hate how everyone compares LT to his monstrous 2006 season. That will never happen again, that shouldn't be the standard which he is compared too.

I think people are under-estimating LT. The guy had over 1100 yds, 13 TD's and 50+ catches on a bad toe and missing some games. I'll take it. I like LT enough to draft him at the bottom of the 2nd round last night. Speaking of Sproles, he is the next Michael Turner. San Diego is the new Denver when it comes to finding good backs.

He's a better running back. Who will receive more carries.

He was a better running back last year, too.

Pretty funny man.

For the vast knowledge of football you supposedly have, this is completely idiotic.

This is a stupid argument to even get involved in, but what the hell, I've gotten into enough stupid arguments, so what's one more.

If Tomlinson got 8 more carries, it isn't unreasonable to think he could potentially break off an 18 yard run in one of those.

Or you could take one carry for 18 yards away from LJ, and his numbers would be 19 carries for 51 yards, just barely 2.5 ypc.

But we are talking about preseason and minimal carries.

So, like I say, it's a stupid ****ing argument.

Yeah, whatever, they're all fighting for second place. By the time Peterson is done, he'll probably have re-written the record book.

Either way, LT is already a top 20 RB of all time. LJ's lucky hes even in the conversation.

I don't care about LJ. If Tomlinson is only a top 20 RB of all time, that's pretty disappointing, considering how he started.

Yeah, well I was going to go with top 10, but I didn't want people to think I was too much of a homer.

Hes 14th all time in Rush Yards and 2nd All Time in Rush TDs.

If he has another 1000 Yard season, he'll be at 7th all time Rushing Yards.
