A very very special R.I.P (Retire In Piece) to L.T. Ladainian Tomlinson. One of the best running backs of all-time, one of the best running back of my generation and probably the running back I’ve ever seen. So exciting to watch in his early years. So quick, so fast, Tomlinson was a terror for the AFC West for almost a decade. Even after LT went to the Jets and became Shaq to a D-Wade in Shonn Greene (I know its a stretch just stay with me), he was still very effective.
Not only was LT an elusive running back, he ran with aggression, anger, and a hunger for the endzone. Set the record for most TDs in a single season for a running back in 2006 with 31 TDs from scrimmage. Tomlinson also won the Walter Payton Man of the Year award that year, one of his idols.
All in all, Ladainian Tomlinson had a great career. 5th all-time in rushing yards with 13,684, 5 Pro Bowl selections, 4 All-Pro first team selections and many many ankles broken. I want to be the first to say R.I.P Ladainian Tomlinson. Hopefully no Brett F4rve in your future.
