Tomlinson to catch even more passes this year?

Postby kemper5 » Tue Aug 07, 2007 1:00 am

Saw this tonight on Rotoworld who got it off chargers.com. . He may go back to his 90+ reception type season, none of that 55 catch junk :-) .. And I do not think his production will lower running wise. He could beat last years stats.. Could we see a 1400 Rushing/90 Catch 800 yard receiving, 30 TD Season?

LaDainian Tomlinson-RB-Chargers Aug. 6 - 11:55 pm et

Coach Norv Turner plans to use LaDainian Tomlinson more as a receiver.

LT could work more out of the slot and on checkdowns. Turner's RBs (Frank Gore in 2006 and LaMont Jordan in '05) tend to catch a boatload of passes.

Yes I see more passes, and maybe the same rushing total, but I don't see him repeating the TD total. But right now the sky is the limit for Tomlinson ;-)

Even if Tomlinson does get more receptions I don't see him getting significantly more touches. If Turner overuses LT2 and he gets injured/breaks down Norv may find his stay in San Diego a short one.

Their receiver situation may lead to more catches for LT/2 too. Most experienced guy in Eric Parker out for 10 weeks or so, which leaves a bunch of 1-2 year guys and rookies.

Should be enough to move him up a spot or two, like joel said. :-b

The only thing I would expect to go down for LT is the touchdowns. 31 is simply insane. I still expect 20+TDs though. Norv coming in just means he should pick up right where he left off and I would expect him to catch alot of balls.

Yeah, I agree. I don't see yardage, receptions, touches, anything going down significantly except for possibly the TD's. However, even with that, he is just so good close to the goal-line. I don't know how many people I have seen more determined to get the ball in the endzone.
