Many of us knew when we were watching 21 stiff arm defenders in the face, catch more passes than many WR’s, and score all of the touchdowns, that we were watching something special. Well we are about to see just how special very soon.

Ladainian Tomlinson was one of the best running backs of all time. He reached 100 career touchdowns in faster than anyone in league history. He has the single season record for rushing touchdowns with 28. He has 2 more career passing touchdowns than Jared Goff. And those accomplishments are just the tip of the ice berg. He was simply amazing.

His career across the board is the career of a 1st ballot hall of famer. He deserves the yellow jacket and his bust in Canton. It will be fun to see his career highlight reel again as this year progresses and he gets confirmed as a Hall of Fame inductee.
