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."

Bigger man-crush = GoChiefs

Better back in 09' = LJ

Darren Sproles>LT in 09'

LT is basically done. He will probably go down again, then realize Adrian Puh Puh Puh Peterson is the best back in the entire league!

Most teams would love to have "Tomlinson's bad year" he is declining because of his overall number of touches and age but he is good enough at every facet of the game to remain a valuable piece to have. He is today a better player than Larry Johnson but that isn't saying a whole lot which is why that argument is baffling.

He is a more complete back than Peterson but he isn't that kind of runner anymore. Also for Peterson and all the talk and records etc, he has to show he's durable. For a RB Tomlinson has been remarkably durable where Peterson's past points to durability problems.

Tomlinson is not a great back anymore, he's a good back that does all of the little things that help you win games.

Peterson is a great runner he just isn't nearly as polished in all facets of the game we'll see if that comes in time. Larry Johnson never learned those things.

LT was the best back in the NFL. Age happens to everyone Tomlinson. I wont ever say he is L.T thats will always be reserved for Lawrence Taylor.


Anyways, great back, but its Peterson's time.

I dont even know why the **** people are Discussing L.J in this league anymore. LJ had 2 good years and that was it. Hell, Priest more then that. lol

It's possible that LJ will exceed LT this year, but that's it. Anyone on here who thinks LJ is anywhere near the same level as LT overall is the definition of "homer".

I'd be stunned if LJ came close honestly...Tomlinson is on a better team with a better line with a better QB etc etc etc.

His bad year still was considerably better than LJ's year.

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.
does that SD stand for South Dakota? everyone here in SAN DIEGO Ive talked to still loves Tomlinson

the bold makes zero sense

Tomlinson could NEVER run with power. Between the tackles he was merely average.

I'd take LT over LJ every time.


Then again....I had LT on my FF team for his monster season....and I won $1500. So I'm kind of biased.

BS he doesn't have the total TD record because he is a bad/average between the tackles runner. Only a Queeef fan would ever think Diaper Boy is better than LT. He never has been and never will be. In fact Diaper Boy is one of the most hyped overrated, overpaid, 2 1000 yd year RB's ever to lace it up.

Numbers aside, they're both equally useless when you really need them, whatever the situation may be.

I never even mentioned Larry Johnson.

Having the TD record in a season doesn't have shit to do with running with power. Shaun Alexander had the record before Tomlinson and he's one of the softest runners of all time. So basically you're an idiot.
