    I apologize to those of you who have seen this before.

    I think there is a current trend among Charger fans of undervaluing our current running back. We've become spoiled as Charger fans. Greatness is our Average, and Impossible is our Expectation. The blinding light that LT has been over the past seven years has blinded us to the fact that we, as Charger fans, are blessed by the very experience of watching this man run the football.

    Ten years from now, chances are we will be watching these clips fondly - and wishing that we were once again watching number 21 streaking through the second level like a flash of lightning. Decades from now, many will proudly say to our descendants, "I saw him run - in person. And he was the best ever."

    And he was a Charger.

    Let's cherish him while we can.

    LT IS ****ING AWESOME!!!!!!


    We are watching the greatest ever!


    You are exactly correct. People expect sooooo much from LT, I pity the runningback that has to follow in his footsteps.

    Well said. It will be very hard for anyone to argue against LT as one of the best ever. :tup:

    We really need to get a Lombardi for this dude. I just can't see the Football Gods not bestowing LT with a ring after all the awesomeness we've witnessed from him.

    Gotta get it done.

    That was a phenomenal video of LT man. You know how they say, "you don't really know how great someone was until they're gone". That IS LT. Many of us have seen him for years and the dude is so great, you forget that only a select few can do the things he's done. He's the MJ of the gridiron man. Many of us have forgotten what this man has sacrificed to give our team some credibility. RTL is right. We NEED to get this guy a Lombardi! We couldn't get one for Seau (neither could the Cheatriots) and we couldn't get a World Series for Tony. Man, let's get a LOMBARDI for LT, San Diego and the REAL Charger fans (us). We all deserve it. Canton should already get his bust ready since he's already cemented a place there. When he gets a Lombardi (or 2 or 3) they WILL be making one up for sure. I think he's already there though. Our year will be next year. I can feel it. You can feel it, LT, Rivers, Gates, Merriman, Phillips, Igor, Castillo, Cro, Jammer. They ALL feel it. As you all said:

    Let's Get it DONE!!!

    I can't see this man's career ending without a ring...The franchise needs a win, of course, but LT...He's one in a million and he really deserves one...TO LT!! :icon_toast:

    Perhaps we should sacrifice BB on the fifty yard line to appease those gods. Wouldn't have to be fatal, or anything. Maybe just a toe.

    A toe will only anger the gods and BB will have to part with a testicle.

    It WOULD be humane to leave him with one.

    Shamrock would be the man for the job too. His testicle detaching prowess is second to none.:yes:
