    Could not be happier that Mr Classy never got to play in a Superbowl.

    Edelman taking him out last year during a prime time beat down of the Jets on their field was pure awesome.

    I, for one, am sorry to hear this news. I really appreciated his influence as a mentor to young Jets players, teaching them to sulk and to blame others for their problems.

    $20 says he gets a job on the NFL Network to join the rest of the Patriot haters. I always remember him sitting on the bench during the 07 AFC title game while Philip Rivers was out there playing on a messed up knee.

    Good is an understatement, but like you said, also a huge cry baby.

    My favorite part about his career was when he got annihilated by Shaun Ellis in last years first Jets-Pats game. Nothing pleased me more than watching one of our guys hit him so hard that his entire head turned around.

    Its almost sad that Tomlinson had to be a jerk and an A-Hole off the field because in his heyday he was one of the greats.

    During the height of his career there was no better all around back in the game and every defense had to plan around defending the run when it came to playing the Chargers.

    I am not going to say I wish the best for LT in his post career endeavors because I simply don't think he is a nice guy,but he will make it to Canton.

    He's easily in the HOF.

    I think the hardest part for LT retiring is that he never got to stay with SD for those 9 straight wins against the Patriots.

    The two of them could have a segment called "Who's more bitter?" where they discuss the Patriots.

    He was a whiny little jagoff who shriveled up like a grape when the pressure went up (3.57 y/a in the playoffs). His legacy will be that of a man riding a stationary bike while his QB played with a shredded ACL.

    But, just for you, Here's the immortal LdT at his playoff best:

    Douche or not, he's one of the all time greats at a position where you need to prove it every day.

    Great player. Not a jerk to the point of being a blemish on the game. Good riddance anyway.

    An all-time great regular season RB, and to be fair his failures to make an imprint on the postseason probably had a lot to do with the fact that, by the time the Chargers got there, they'd pretty consistently ridden him into the ground already. Not his fault that he was always hurt (and 350-400 touches in) by that point.

    That said, he was also a jerk and I'm glad that he's out of the league.

    Started every game but one for eight years, all 1,000 yard seasons. Sorry, but there's no way he wasn't playing hurt a lot, no matter what a jerk he was later. I think he deserves the benefit of the doubt if he couldn't go in a game later.

    Rich Cimini of ESPN New York lists among Tomlinson's "legacy" an interview in which he blasts the Jets, from Mark Sanchez to Rex Ryan, calling the internal dissention "as bad as any I've ever been around":

    LaDainian Tomlinson gave New York Jets everything he had including criticism - ESPN New York

    :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

    Tomlinson was easily the best running back since at least Marshall Faulk. And he was probably also the biggest crybaby since at least Marshall Faulk.

    Retiring without a single ring, maybe he gets it from his coach(es)?
