Morning Dump

By Ernie Padaon

One of the big effects of the Lockout that blew out last year’s off-season is how this year’s off-season is a lot different from 2010’s off-season. Isn’t it?

Peyton Manning steps back, looks for an open receiver, he hits LaDainian Tomlinsonout of the backfield on a swing pass. LT keeps running, to the 30, 20, 10… TOUCHDOWN!!!

I love LaDanian Tomlinson. The man won me a fantasy football title back in 2006 when he broke the single-season touchdown record. I feel privieged that I was able to watch one of the greatest running backs of all time. I was sad when he retired this past week. However, when news broke yesterday that Tomlinson considered playing one more season I was a bit disappointed. Not in that he was considering another season but in that he was only considering the Denver Broncos.

When LaDainian Tomlinson announced his retirement this week, signing a one-day contract with the Chargers in order to leave the NFL with the franchise that brought him into the league, it really did seem like he’d never actually left San Diego.
