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."

shaun alexander benefited from having walter jones and hutchinson in their primes.

Tomlinson is #2 in rushing TDs of ALL TIME. You think he got that by walking into the end zone each time? Ive seen him drag LBrs on his back into the endzone. He can run with power. Dont knock until youve seen him play, Ive watched his entire career.

Yup, plus one of the best, if not the best stiff arms of all time.

I've actually noticed a gradual shift since I've been here.

More people used to hate Rivers, and not LT. Now its completely opposite.

you've never seen Tomlinson drag linebackers into the endzone. The guy was never a good power runner. His signature move is his jump cut for peete's sake.

The touchdown argument has no teeth. Where is shaun alexander ranked on the all time TD list? And that guy wore tampons.

yes I have. Watch 8:43




How about instead of stats, just watch him run. He may not have the power he used to have but in the prime of career he was forcing his way into the end zone. to say he NEVER had power is false.


didnt you also say he couldnt run between teh tackles? what was he good for then? 2 rushing titles and top 10 in rushing of all time in 7 years.....nitpicking much Did he just leap over the entire defense each play?

So he hit Ted Johnson at the 1 and got a TD and that's dragging linebackers into the endzone?

And you used the "just watch him play" line? I have. Since his TCU days, and he doesn't run with power. I can show you videos of lots of backs who will occasionally get leverage over a guy and win that battle, but it doesn't make them a power back or a guy that can run with power. Tomlinson has always been an edge runner who relied on his quicks and ability to make people miss to get his yards and numbers. Who is it he is most compared to? Barry Sanders. And Sanders was never a power guy. Ever.

The touchdown argument has been shot down over and over and over again. Priest and Alexander scores a hell of a lot of touchdowns and yards but neither guy was a great power runner. Priest was at least not a pussy and would put his head down, but Alexander was as soft as any back I've ever watched and he racked up touchdown after touchdown and a butt load of yards. It's an argument with no teeth. so stop trying to use it.

Not from playing behind, that and his receiving and blocking skills are still to be desired.. Hate to agree with a filthy Bolt fan, but unless the Chiefs are winning games LT should win in a landslide even with Sproles stealing spotlight.. If the Chiefs win, then LJ will see way more carries then LT but that is not very likely..
