Chargers: Good news, bad news for LT

by Fanball Staff -
Monday, September 22, 2003

The good news for LaDainian Tomlinson is that he rushed for 105 yards against Ray Lewis and the Ravens on Sunday. Take that, Jamal Lewis. The bad news is that LT's o-line suffered three injuries in the game. Right guard Solomon Page (ankle), right tackle Vaughn Parker (knee), and left tackle Damion McIntosh (chest bruise) all were injured to varying degrees.

Two of the three are scheduled for MRIs, which is never a good sign. San Diego's line was pretty bad to begin with, so this is not good news for LT owners. We'll let you know how the MRIs come out when the team releases info."


There's no reason to panic, but is it crazy to think about moving LT for a Portis, Alexander or Deuce? I don't think it's as crazy as it sounds. Chargers o-line looked bad before and is hurting, while their defense is rapidly becoming pitiful.

I'm not an LT owner, but I'm just throwing this out there for discussion. His solid Week 3 restores his trade value - I think people might want to consider using it. There's no need to panic, but I think LT owners have to at least be willing to think about it.
... in my opinion, of course - but that should always go without saying. (home of the golf rap "On The Green")

I think I would take a healthy Portis for LT at this point.....

I'd have to consider Portis....but not Deuce...LT is better than Deuce. Hopefully his O-line will be okay. If not, that's another story.

you have to take into consideration if your in a keeper league or not..I have LT in 2 of my keepers and have no intentions of tradeing him away...your knocking a guy who ran for 100 yards vs a tuff tuff D with a hurtin offensive line...think about that..imagin when they get healthy, (which they will) what LT will do then...again becareful about tradeing away players too soon
