    Funny how right after the superbowl a lot of the pundits were talking about teams being sheep and following the mold of the Patriots who had the fewest $5 mil per year players in the NFL on their roster. Seems with all the money slung at Peyton, Bailey, Portis, LT all those CB's and several of the rookies that there were not many sheep after all. And I still don't understand how Fitzgerald, as a rookie example, is worth basically as much money as the best players in the NFL such as LT--I know he has potential but does he really have the potential to ever put up 2200 yds in a single year and follow it up with 2400 yds the next?--by the way the most yards by a WR ever is 1848 by Jerry Rice.

    this is absolutely great...in my mind he is the best runningback in the game right now...and deserves to be paid the most...congrates LT

    Now LT needs the Chargers to draft a couple of good offensive lineman in next years draft and get Rivers signed....

    A nice reciever couldn't hurt either. What he really needs is a good owner and GM.

    i must say that i'm surprised about this, i figured that he couldn't wait to get out, but apparently that isn't so. that just shows what kind of a guy he is, he wants to help the team and i have a lot of respect for him and would love him on my team anyday.

    i know the guy is good maybe the best in the league, but how can you call him LT, you can't give someone a nickname that already belongs to one of the best defensive players ever. maybe little LT.

    haha...the nickname wasn't something i gave him...so many of the sports casters have been calling him LT for years now...i'm just going with the flow...but either way he deserves it...he's the right guy for san deigo probably the only guy who wants to be there for the team not just himself

    yeah i read where he said that too, i guess he doesn't want to be the next cory dillion, which is a good thing.

    i shouldn't have said you guys, i should have said everyone.

    just put it this way...he's a good ole texas boy who knows what football is and knows how to be a team player...no matter what name you call him he's the same guy...and i hope this season the rest of the nation realizes that he is the best runningback in the game and votes him to the pro bowl...can't believe he didn't make it last season idonno:

    he will make it this year now that portis left and lewis isn't going to play all of the games this year. if he didn't play for the chargers he probably would have made it, he get hurt because the san diego doesn't get any pub. "Out of sight, out of mind"
