    The dude is just sick. I would seriously give one of my fingers, maybe even 2, to have him on our team. 199 yds rushing last night vs. the Chiefs.
    On that 85 yrd TD run, even my wife who could care less about football yelled out "man that guy is fast!"
    Are there any potential LT types in the draft? LOL (And no Reggie Bush comments please :ok: )

    You don't have to have the next L.T. How about the next Eric Dickerson... Adrian Peterson anyone..

    picked ahead of L.T. in the '01 draft:

    1 Atlanta Michael Vick QB Virginia Tech
    2 Arizona Leonard Davis T Texas
    3 Cleveland Gerard Warren DT Florida
    4 Cincinnati Justin Smith DE Missouri
    5 San Diego LaDainian Tomlinson RB Texas Christian


    I wonder if those teams front offices get beatings every day for that move?

    There's a reason why they're considered special talents. Because they don't come along often.

    No, there's not a net LT player in this draft. There's not a next LT player currently in the league. There won't be a next LT player for a long time.

    I liked LT in his time with the Giants, but I'm not big on him anymore. I heard he's overcoming his problems though and getting his life back in order, though.

    Sorry...had to...

    They will have to look real hard. Just think, the Eagles got Brian Westbrook in the 3rd round out of Villanova. Westbrook is a Reggie Bush like player, only better at this point.

    LT is one of a kind. I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for another one to come along anytime soon.

    Their probably isn't an LT in this draft, but you can't say that for sure. Until the players drafted actually get on the field, you can't say for sure which one is good and which one is bad. Personally, I don't think their is another LT in the draft, but I would mind seeing the initials AP being linked with the Texans. Adrian Peterson.

    I want to know who had LT on their fantasy team and didn't make the championship round.

    Frank Gore is good but he is no LT. LT is and has always been a touchdown machine. Gore does not have a nose for the end zone like LT. I'm not trying to take anything away from him, but it is the truth. Gore may end up to be another Marshall Faulk, but even Faulk is not LT.

    gore definitely has a nose for the endzone. always had in college, too. check out his OT run against FSU, that was beautiful.

    exactly.

    Gore is good but let's not kid ourselves he's no LT.

    LT
    LJ

    are clearly the two best back in the NFL right now and LT is by far better than LJ and that's saying a lot b/c I think LJ is pretty damn special.
