    Now, where do I begin?

    Ladainian Tomlinson is one of the greatest football players to ever play the game. He is an inspiration to millions of people all over the world. His attitude on and off the field, is something we should all strive for.

    This future Hall of Famer, holds records that surpass legendary players like Jim Brown, Walter Payton and Barry Sanders. He is the face of the Chargers and the city of San Diego. He is, in my opinion, the greatest Charger of all time.

    Ya, we all know LT has been struggling lately. Despite the fact he was hurt last season, he still rushed for over a thousand yards. He is just so good, when he doesn't perform better than outstanding, people start talking about parting ways!

    This is blasphemy!

    Have we learned nothing from the tragic story of Brett Favre and the Packers? The Chargers cannot make that mistake! Not only would that tarnish the image of LT, it would make the Chargers look like complete fools.

    Even if we got a good trade out of it, and LT went to another team and did horrible and we did great, the animosity and the letdown of every single Charger fan would always linger in the air.

    He has already proved himself a hundred times over. Now that he isn't going to have surgery, there is absolutely no reason for San Diego to even contemplate doing anything, except signing LT to a long term contract.

    I hope the Spanos family and A.J. Smith have enough sense to realize that Ladainian Tomlinson is the greatest Charger of all time and that we are just a few LT touchdowns away from winning a Super Bowl!

    We have such a great opportunity to win a Super Bowl with all these great players. There are so many potential Hall of Famers on this team. The Chargers we have now have a chance to go down as one of the greatest teams of all time, and LT is the man behind it all.

    With Rivers flying the ball and LT in good shape, the Chargers are more than a force to be reckoned with.

    Nice post man. :tup: If we let LT go, you will see Brady or Cutler handing the ball off to him next season and I KNOW you all don't want to see that. :no:

    I think they'll get him restructured.

    I hope you're right.
    I would agree but if they slap a franchise tag on Sproles and ask LT to take a pay cut... not so sure. :icon_evil:

    Lt is still a great player and I for one would like to see him stay put. However, it's Rivers show now and Norv is going to use the air game to set up the run.

    Lt needs to realize his body can't take the pounding it once could. get him more involved with the passing game and the sky is the limit. :bolt:

    I think he stays but we do need to draft a RB to help him out. I would love Moreno.

    Restructuring doesn't mean he needs to take a pay cut - just changes how/when he gets his money - it can be done and it should be done. We'll know by the end of next week...

    LT should stay a Charger until the day he hangs it up, preferably after he's also hoisted a Lombardi. :yes:

    Football is a Business, the players are only in it for the $$$$$$$.

    You do not cheer a person, you cheer a number.
