    Running back LaDainian Tomlinson of the San Diego Chargers named the AFC Offensive, Defensive and Special Teams Players of the Month for November, the NFL announced today.

    OFFENSE: RB LA DAINIAN TOMLINSON, SAN DIEGO CHARGERS

    Scoring more than twice as many touchdowns (13) as any other player during November and reaching milestone after milestone, San Diego’s Tomlinson helped lead the Chargers to a perfect 4-0 November and grasp hold of first place in the AFC West at 10-2. Tomlinson accounted for at least three TDs – rushing, receiving, or passing – and rushed for more than 100 yards in all four games. In Week 9 against Cleveland, he amassed 172 rushing yards and three TDs on 18 carries in a 32-25 win. The following week in Cincinnati, he rushed for 104 yards and scored four touchdowns to become the first player in NFL history to score 15 TDs in a five-game span for a 49-41 victory. The 5-10 rusher also caught six passes for 54 yards, playing a large role in the team’s overcoming a 21-point first-half deficit. On Nov. 19, with first place on the line in a Sunday night game at Denver, Tomlinson again scored four TDs – three rushing and another on a 51-yard catch-and-run – in a 35-27 triumph with 105 rushing yards. That night, Tomlinson reached 1,000 rushing yards for the sixth consecutive season to begin his career and scored his 100th career TD in his 89th career game, reaching triple-digit touchdowns in the fewest games played in history (Pro Football Hall of Famer Jim Brown, Emmitt Smith, 93). Capping off his brilliant November, Tomlinson ran for 109 yards on 19 carries, ran for two TDs, and passed for another in a 21-14 win at Oakland. The scoring pass was the sixth of his career. Among non-quarterbacks, only Pro Football Hall of Famer Walter Payton (eight) threw more in a career.

    This is Tomlinson’s first monthly award since being name NFL Offensive Rookie of the Month in October 2001. (Wow, it's been that long!)

    Maybe he can have another great month and challenge Marshall's yards from scrimmage record.

    LT is just a machine when he steps onto the field. Someone like him deserves a rushing title if not a Super Bowl ring in the future. Just an amazing athlete.

    If AJ Smith is God, and PR is the Messiah, what does that make LT? Or is it more of a holy trinity thing? (Religious dogmata confuse me.)

    I for one am glad that we have an LT on our team and not a Michael Vick. LT is a class act on and off the field.
