LaDainian Tomlinson Ready to Put 2008 Behind Him


Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson is ready for 2008 to be behind him, and ready for a big season for he and the Chargers. L.T. knows that the hurts that he went through last season were just a trial of life, and that he will be ready to go come opening day.

Frankly, he’s tired of hearing that he’s washed up and won’t be able to have a big year.

“That is the perception not only for me but running backs throughout history,” he said. “That is something you fight against every day and every year. Not only me, but every guy at certain positions there is a number or stigma or whatever you want to call it that says you should be old at this position at this point of your career. At running back, it says 30.

“So my challenge is to prove them wrong and it is certainly going to be a heck of a challenge and I’m certainly looking forward to it and in the long run I think it’ll help me out.”

So far, L.T. has looked great in minicamps and the first day of Chargers camp. Along with up and coming back Darren Sproles, he and the Chargers are looking to be a serious threat to the AFC top dogs in 2008, and even make a serious run at the Super Bowl.
