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."

GoChiefs would seriously spend the day cleaning and waxing LJ's car if he could go along with him to the clubs just once.

It's Man Crush + Bromance = some ungodly new fanboi evolution.

Nah, there's an old saying. "Never meet your heroes." I never want to meet LJ. Ever.

It was enough for me that he acknowledged me on his blog and gave a hat tip to WPI for making him the cover boy.

Are you afraid he would spit his gin and juice on you?

Every Charger fan I know says hes done and wanted to let him go over Turner. Plus the argument that LT is better because he produced more yds doesn't make sense. He touched the ball for 85% of their plays for a lot of years because he was all they had. LJ was used as RB which his title is. LT was used as QB/RB/WR/TE/FB because they had no one else shoulder the load. Now that they do, his numbers have declined to the point no one even talks about him anymore. Its all about Sproles if you walk down the street.

Best back?

He's not even the best LT.

I was going to post a picture of the LT, but then I got this:

LaT was a damn good back, but he's not in my top 10, and I think he's about done. Getting rid of "the burner" will prove to be a terrible mistake. I love Sproles, but he's just not an every down back. He's better than LaT though right now.

Oh, sorry about that. I wasn't trying to present a rational argument.

I was just making fun of him.

His uniform is on display in Canton. It's right next to Tom Brady's as the 2006 and 2007 MVPs.

LT wasn't even the most effective back on his team last year. Hell, Sproles is the better receiver at this point.

Buck and I have a bet, LJ vs LT...he's screwed.
Sproles will only start because of injury. Your screwed because Diaper Boy is the most overrated RB in the past 5 years and LT's off year last year was better than LJ outside of a year or two. HOF vs overrated THUG? Who do you got?

I feel sorry for the SOB that bet you only to win and have you welch on the bet.

Season is here so I will let the numbers do the talking. As if LT's already hadn't.

I will say that everyone that is doubting him is just adding more fuel to the fire. Heck, someone in the Chargers front office gave him the article to read.
