From one snake-bitten franchise to another...
I would argue with that statement if I could.
I dont know if he's that over the hill. Not a featured back, but able to at least split equal time with somebody.Wishful thinking?
Of course I'm biased, but I think a big share of the blame for LT's reduced production over the last few years goes to his offensive line at SD. As they've tweaked the O-line to be optimized for Rivers' pass blocking rather than LT's running, there just weren't holes there.I don't care who you are, if there is no hole to run through, you aren't going to get more than a couple of yards. I watched a lot of the Chargers' games and didn't see much daylight for LT to run to. I'd love to see him sign with a team with a good O-line and blocking fullback. He'd show everyone he's got something left in those legs.
I still think LT has some juice left to be a full time RB. I think his decline definitely had to do more with the Chargers offensive shift from run happy to pass happy. Look at the stats for the last 4 years. 2006- 466 Pass Attempts/522 Rushes2007- 471 PA/485 RA2008- 478 PA/ 421 RA2009- 519 PA/ 427 RA
I actually see this LT to the Vikings thing happening. I think it will prompt Favre to come back for his 39th season
Ugh... Why would you want to have 2 RBs who could start pretty much anywhere have to split time AND contend with an egomaniac QB?
