    LaDainian Tomlinson...Best Back EVER?

    I knew he was gonna be great out of college...but didn't dream that he could possibly be the best ever once he was done.
    No less than Jim Brown has nothing but good things to say about LT...words that other NFL players should take to heart.

    Re: LaDainian Tomlinson...Best Back EVER?

    I think it could happen. If he continues his current production for another 6-8 years he will be the greatest, hands down. If he doubles his current stats (through about 6 years) he'll be pretty close to Emmitt on the all time rushing list and would likely blow every running back in history out of the water as far as receiving goes. If he can play another 6 years at this level, LT will be the greatest ever.

    Re: LaDainian Tomlinson...Best Back EVER?

    While I am very thankful for LT's amazingness this season because he has lead my fantasy football team to a division leading 7-3 record, I can't say he is the best of all time.
    Even if someday he is statistically the greatest back ever, I will always feel that Barry Sanders was the most talented football player to ever strap on a helmet....and therefore the best.
    If he wouldn't have ended his career early he would be the leading rusher, not Emmitt.
    The things he did on the field have never been rivaled by any other back, including LT.

    Re: LaDainian Tomlinson...Best Back EVER?

    If he has 5 more seasons like the last few...Yes, but for now you cant say it.
    In my opinion, Jim Brown is the best.
    He led the league 9 out of the 10 years he played and he amassed all those yards playing a 10 game season.
    Number 2 would be Walter and Emmit # 3.
    What do yall think.

    Right now, Barry Sanders is the best ever IMHO..followed by Walter Payton, then Jim Brown.

    Hands down Barry Sanders.

    If him and Emmitt Smith swapped teams, Sanders would have had twice as many yards as Emmitt.

    He has the skills to be the greatest back ever. But I still think that Barry Sanders was the greatest back ever.

    Re: LaDainian Tomlinson...Best Back EVER?

    I never saw Jimmy Brown play, so I can't really comment on that.

    But I've never seen another runner like Walter Payton.
    And includes Barry Sanders.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Re: LaDainian Tomlinson...Best Back EVER?

    I would also have to put Walter Peyton at the top. Next would be Emmit Smith (and he can dance!!!) Sanders was on his way until he went wacko.

    There were others I would consider way up there too........Tony Dorsett, Marcus Allen, Larry Johnson.

    The bottom line for me is that Tomlinson has a ways to go.


    Personally, I don't think there is intelligent life on other planets. Why should other planets be any different from this one?
