    <font class="text"> </font><font class="subhead">PLAYER OF THE YEAR: LaDainian Tomlinson, RB, Chargers </font>

    <font class="text"> <strong>Number that best defines his season: </strong> 186 points, which broke Paul Hornung's 1960 record of 176. </font>

    <font class="text"> <strong>Best moment: </strong> When he broke the single-season record for TDs. "The reaction of my teammates, my fans. That was special." </font>

    <font class="text"> <strong>Impacted his season the most: </strong> His teammates on offense. "I just felt like we were a special group, and I never wanted to let those guys down." </font>

    <font class="text"> <strong>His goal every season: </strong> "Just be consistent." </font>

    <font class="text"><strong>Likes to relax: </strong> By spending time near the water in the Caribbean. </font>

    <font class="text"> <strong>NFL player past or present he admires most: </strong> Walter Payton. "He was the reason I wanted to play football. Seeing him run with the ball, I wanted to be just like him." </font>

    <font class="text"> <strong>Best thing about San Diego: </strong> "The weather. Are you kidding me?" </font>

    <font class="text"> <strong>What Broncos coach Mike Shanahan said to him after the game in which he broke the touchdown record: </strong> "He said he saw me on the Leno show." </font>

    <font class="text"> <strong>If he didn't play football: </strong> He would train athletes. </font>
