    GAZING INTO THE CRYSTAL BALL... Once he adjusts to running from a pro-set instead of a veer offense, watch him grow into a very effective back. Definitely starting material, but he has enough to only garner All-Pro consideration eventually, but this is no franchise back (or anyone else) here, folks. His numbers are very impressive, but he's a product of the team's system. Too bad too many general managers are desperate for a running back, as he'll go higher than his stock dictates.

    Interesting to see that to some degree this was a fairly realistic view in scouting circles that year. One guess who the guy is talking about? He he he!!!

    Are you kidding?

    All the pre-draft scouting reports identified Reggie Bush as the next coming of Christ.

    Who would draft this clod?


    Negatives... Works better when taking the pitch-out, lacking the sudden moves to get off the snap from the proper stance...For all of his power, he seems to prefer to run out of bounds rather than turn upfield to gain extra yardage...not that productive when called upon to take the ball up the middle...Looks to make the "home run" plays too often, developing a reliance on that factor... Better when he gets a rolling start (best with a few yards to build up), but still lacks that explosive burst you'd want in a player with his quickness...Little tight in the hips, preventing him from developing any "shake-&-bake" moves...Willing blocker, but not one who can rock the defender back...Shows strength breaking low tackles, but does not have that quick first step to avoid nor does he use his power to move the pile.

    This is an evaluation from a different time frame. Any resemblance to current draft choices is purely coincidental and is in no way applicable to real persons, living or dead.

    At least the scout has the excuse of making the report before the fact.

    You're making this statement while having the benefit of hindsight.

    Scout >>>>>> MTLBF

    LaDainian is a franchise killer. He pussed out this year and he pussed out in 2004 when he averaged 3.9 yards per carry on the season and played like **** against the Jets. For those who want to blame his "cracked ribs" in 2004 for his failures, I then tell you that LaDainian is a selfish little scrub who doesn't do what is in the best interest of the team. I'd say LaDainian is more of a "me" player than Terrell Owens at this moment.

    LaDainian Tomlinson 2004 wild card game vs. NYJ

    26 carries 80 yards 3.1 YPC 0 TD long run of 12 yards

    :clap:

    Way to go franchise!!!
