    <blockquote>By Tim Sullivan

    LaDainian Tomlinson is the main course. Michael Turner, more or less, is the appetizer.

    LT is the proven commodity, the genuine article, the three-time Pro Bowler, the all-time Chargers running back. MT is the patient understudy, the guy who waits in the wings for whatever crumbs might materialize. He is probably overqualified for the role fate has dealt him, but unequipped to take Tomlinson's job.

    "It's all about timing in this league," Turner said Saturday night. "It might not be your time to be a superstar. All you can do is work hard and good things will happen for you."</blockquote>
