LT is now averaging 4.9 yards per carry. I just thought all you guys who were whining about his pedestrian yards per carry average a few weeks ago would like to know that.

Actually I read somewhere that on film Cam noticed LT was shifting his feet laterally before hitting the hole and started calling more plays where LT would hit the hole harder and faster. I'll look for the link when I get home as someone linked it from an insider page.

It does seem like he's gotten to the line & hit the holes quicker in the last couple weeks. :yes:

EDIT: and he can still run out of bounds with the best of 'em!

I will love LT if he keeps this up but the fact is that he looks like a completely different runner... first of all he is rarely tripping over himself... he is making good gap reads and hasn't had as many opportunities to "cut it short" as he has had in the past. He is getting very good blocking though. Let's see him put up 100 against Denver.

So when his numbers are down, you're certain he's done and should be replaced by Michael Turner, but when he plays well you have your doubts?

It's amazing how LT seems to hit the holes quicker when there are actually holes to be hit.

MTL has a point you guys are missing no matter how hard you want to ride his nuts.

Turner is special and so is LT.

Turners makes LT look like a kid in certain running aspects especially power running.

Turner will never go out of bounds to save his body (just like LoNeal). This smells of MAN-GINA to some and I am not excluded from this small clan so watch out sherlock.

These fuggers want to hit somebody and fuc them up.

LT's best stick will be a stiff arm.

Does this mean MTL is not a fan ?

Of course not.

He sees shit that some of you are dismissing as way obvious.

Turner is a starter on most teams in the NFL.

If you had a Jim Brown behind a Barry Sanders, you would be cracking a woodie as well and that is what I suspect MTL sees in the Burner. MTL is not that far off the mark in my book at all.

trump, " quote:stuart scott, hands down Lt is the best running back in the game" Terrell Davis goes to the hall with 7000+ yards over 7 seasons, Lt is over 8 with 5 1/2 seasons, Turner is great and i 100% agree that he would start with any other team right now, however Lt is still THE best in the league and if he has "lost a step" ,that right now has NO bearing on his status as the best. His 8 yarder yesterday where he purposly did a spin move so he could score, pure talent, if he doesn't spin he's stopped short. Do you really want him to be a "power runner"? Injuries would be more obtainable. LT WILL GO DOWN AS THE BEST RB TO EVER PLAY THE GAME, BOTTOM FUGGIN LINE.:yes:

Turner's a very good back, but he's not in LT's class. He's not a Jim Brown.

you and MTL are way off on this one. Suggesting that Turner is a better RB for our system is ludicrous. LT is first in TDs, 2nd in yards. Do you really believe that Turner's numbers would be better?

Do the two guys have different running styles? Of course. LT is not the power back Turner is, but so the fock what? Barry wasn't a power back either, neither was Gayle Sayers. Does that make them any less great?

Dude we have two great backs who I can only draw parallels to and nobody will ever compare exactly to any player from yester-year.

I am not suggesting Turner is better for our system exclusively.

You are taking exception to Turner being compared to Jim Brown....OK the FUC that comparison ........... tone it the fuc down to an Earl Cambell because that SOB was a fuc-king banger as a runner.

So now you have an Earl Cambell behind LT.

It is the same fuggin result dude no matter how you sugar coat it or the lip stick you put on the whore.

yeah, i have never said anything to mtl, but i will now. lt doesnt give a shit what you think. :icon_rofl: i dont think he has to prove himself to you or your fuqd up horse that does nothing but flagulate while you ride in on him. if you dont realize what youre baring witness too i dont know wht to tell you. i think your expectations are way off base and definitely not realistic as this is the nfl.
Of course he cares about what we say. If he didn't he wouldn't have said anything about him losing a step after he had a big game. He is human after all and no matter what he says....he still listens and hears what others have to say about him and human nature is no matter how much you deny it, someone disses you the one thing you want to do is prove them wrong. Funny how he didn't say anything when he was rushing for 50 yards a game.

And no, I don't hate or dislike LT. Just pointing things out.:icon_finger: :joke:

well you coulndt be further from the truth, no its called being a professional, thats why he should not and does not care what ignorant fans think of him. you think barry bonds cares what padre fans think? the only reason he cried becuase of it is the emotional overload due to steroid use. im sure he goes home and cries himself to sleep on his HUGE pillow. i dont know lt personally but i can guarantee you he is unscaved by criticism. because hes a pro, and that just goes along with it.

Not many people noticed it, but that move was brilliant. Akin to Jordan switching hands for the lay-up so many years ago. To be trite, that was a "spectacular move" by LaDanian Tomlinson. And it really embodies what I've been saying about the guy this year. He may have a lost a step in the break away (I don't see it), but he's gained two steps in terms of his acceleration and agility.

I could care less about Barry Bonds. He I believe could cares less about the fans. LT I believe is cut from a different mold! To mention him in the same sentence as Bonds is blasphemy!

Don't take me too seriously talking about LT. I'm all for him. Just having some fun!

sorry you couldnt pick up the comparison, just simply pointing out that pro's dont listen to the lamen and never will, lt cares about the fans yes, im sure he does, but i also know he couldnt care less about the negative criticism, he plays for 52 people and none of whome post messages here.

i merely brought up bonds to give you an example of a pro athelete that is under constant scrutiny from douchebags and sportswriters alike. get it?

It is a pleasure to be able to discuss football, sex, rock and roll and stock investments and have the capacity to say FU and then pass me another glass of wine or beer with no hard feelings.

So FU......buuurrrrp. :bolt: :icon_toast:
