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."

You are extremely biased. LT is on his last legs. Anyone can see that.

LJ in his best days couldn't carry Tomlinson's jockstrap in his best days.

They are both on the decline, and I'd still take Tomlinson over LJ every ****ing day.

Hate to break it to you, but Larry Johnson is less than 5 months younger than LT. LJ was beat to the ground at Penn State, and he was for a couple years in KC.

If you want to talk wear and tear, they are equal for both guys.

Not to mention the Chiefs Offensive Line isn't going to do shit for LJ. At least the Chargers O-Line can keep Tomlinson somewhat protected.

You know that is not true. Not even close.

You are really flying off the handle here. You have a man crush on LT and hate the fact he is going the way of the Dodo.

LOL, I am the one who has a man crush?

How can you even dispute the fact that LJ has been run into the ground?

You are the biggest LJ apologist on this board, if not the entire internet.

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.
It isn't unreasonable. But just making assumptions on what you think he may possibly break one out doesn't explain the rate LT was going at.

"Well he was rushing for only under 3 ypc, but hey he's LT which means he's automatically due to bust one out for a huge gain if given 8 more carries."

I could easily say he gets 8 more carries and gets stuffed on almost every run, bringing his average down even lower. Same principle.

I have a man crush too, but LT has been run into the ground a lot more. This is undisputed fact. LJ had one heavy carry season and that was it.

Even Chargers fans know LT is done:

This is really a big question for me, since LT does not look to me like the LT of old (yet). He had a couple of holes Sat night, and was arm tackled for short gains. Even Michael Bennett has looked better so far (running against 2's). There seems to be a gap between the talk of how good LT looks, and his performance on the field so far. I want him to be the LT we all know.

Really? You are trying to convince me by posting the opinion of one Chargers fan from somewhere on the internet? You didn't even post a link to where you got that from? I'm sure wherever you found it, the ratio is at least 5:1 saying that LT has still got it.

And I'm sure they've thought that over the past couple of years too, and he still ends up not being there when the team really needs him.
