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'm not trying to convince you, Buck.

I'm sure you will be convinced about two months from now when Sproles is your team's leading rusher.

Observe as Chargers fans prepare for the inevitable:

We did franchise tag him one year, but we couldn't afford two " six million dollar " men per year on long term contracts. Sproles takes that franchise role this year and depending on how LT holds up, next year we may let Sproles go FA.

However Rivers is locked up now and that gives us the chance to spend the #1 next year on LT's replacement if required. Interesting year at RB for sure

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'm not saying that because he's Tomlinson that he will break off an 18 yard run.

I'm saying it's not unreasonable to think it's possible.
Your scenario is also not unreasonable.

LJ was averaging just about the same as Tomlinson until he got that 18 yard run, which was about his 15th or 16th carry this preseaosn.

But, again, it's a stupid ****ing argument, because 20 carries and 12 carries, respectively, is simply a ridulous sample size to measure with.

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

Whoa, LJ barely touched the field until his last year at Penn State, and even then he didn't carry the ball that much, he just had a record breaking ypc. At KC he rode the bench in his diaper for a few years, then broke out in 05'. Herm then tried to kill him in 07', which probably added 3 years onto his body.

To say they have the same mileage is crazy though.

Ok, you are right about the Penn State thing. For some reason I thought he was used more in College. I went to a Penn State bar every saturday his senior year, so I had a lot of exposure to him that year.

I found it amazing that he broke the ypc record that year. He must have had an amazing offensive line in front of him.

I got to watch LT play against Tulsa back in 00'. I could tell he was going to be special, and once he got to the NFL LT was lucky enough to get a coach that knew how to utilize him.
