    Thank you. Have many of you forgotten how much LT has given to this team and community??? Some of you apparently have. To question his commitment and not being a cheerleader?? Please. This guy has given his SOUL to this organization and he didn't have to. You ALL will be really sorry if we lost him. You don't what you have until it's gone, trust me.

    I have no idea why some fans are criticizing ladanian. IF your hurt your hurt. He was probably told to just sit. I hope some media and fans apologize to ladanian. Can't imagine he or alot of folks have much respect for fans and media that criticize an injured player.

    Well...the main thing is that he was able to stay warm on the sideline. that was a major concern for many I know. He looked nice and toasty over there. Glad he was comfortable...after all...if he stood up and cheered his team on he might have gotten a serious injury like his quarterback who was on the field playing and leading his team.

    Thank God he stayed warm.:lol:

    Chuck, you need to immediately replace the first two letters in your name with one letter.

    LT is irreplacable, and having him healthy is our main concern, hope he and other heal well this offseason, and hit the ground running next season. Hopefully we can stay healthy all year, now that our system is where it needs to be as far as coaches and players are concerned, we will make an easy run at 19-0 next year and make the Pats a thing of yesteryear.

    QB and RB are two different positions, and I think that LT was just crushed that he couldn't contribute.

    Injuries fuqed us in the *** this post season. It happens. Next year is another season, and it was fun watching the team finally make the next step in their development. As long as they can build on this going into next season, I like our chances rolling into the playoffs without the injuries that we had yesterday.

    A healthy Gates, Rivers, and Tomlinson, and we walk out of there with the W yesterday.

    Oh there are the factions who roam around like wolves preying on the unsuspecting and here is no exception.

    This is where the "A" list of posters reside.

    It is way harder to get banned here as I have tried a few times. :lol:

    There is just a small difference between a guy who is essentially a pocket passer and a running back. If Rivers was a runner, he would have been I R'd, or at least made inactive from the get go of the first injury.

    ChargerInAtlanta came up with this nugget of factoid:

    So, other RB sprained/strained their MCL and missed multiple games, yet LT is the wuss for not going back in and playing after hurting his MCL. :icon_huh:

    Yeah, the same "wuss" RB that played December 2005 with cracked ribs because of a cheap-assed Raider punch.

    The same "wuss" RB that played 8 games in 2004 with a groin injury sustained by a horse-collar tackle.

    That same guy?

    The first game of his NFL career he missed almost entirely due to injury and he's a wuss.

    I agree, running backs get pounded every game. They have a short playing life because of the constant abuse they take. You have to consider the position along with the injury when judging if a player can or should play. Turner is a very good running back, if LT can’t play at 90% or above, Turner should be in the game.

    I support LT all the way. He is the face of this team and hopefully will be for years to come!

    That was a hell of an effort that Rivers displayed. The QB is always the logical leader of a team; Rivers looks like he might have what it takes.

    But, LT will still be the face of the team! He may be a tacit leader but still a leader.

    LT will be the quiet, reserved, zen leader.

    Rivers will be the loud, funny leader.


    If this were a Lethal Weapon movie, Rivers is Mel Gibson and L.T. is Danny Glover. :lol:
