LT in Purple Again?

You know I would like this.

I don't know if LT has the juice in his legs to be a starting back somewhere, but I do know that he can still play and would be a good change of pace back/pass catching back/third down back.

If he wants to be the lead back somewhere, this is probably not in his best interest, but hot damn I would love to see him in purple again.

Plus he could teach Peterson a thing or two about holding onto the ball.

What do the rest of you LT fans think?

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 Rushes
2007- 471 PA/485 RA
2008- 478 PA/ 421 RA
2009- 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?
