Um, I wouldn't. He had his life "straighten" out for most of last season and you saw what he was able to produce.

I wouldn't, he sucks.


For some reason, that little comment just struck me as frickin hilarious.

Not much of a debate so far.

With LT catching 100 last year and increasing his number of catches, yd/reception, TDs and yd/carry in each of the past two years, all while playing on a terrible team he is #1.

I would like to see what he could do on a good team.

I would be interested to see how these other RB would do on SD.
I feel comfortable saying that I don't think that they would rack up they same yrds from scrimmage.

Thats stupid. The only reasons LT didn't make the pro bowl is b/c 4 of the top 5 backs this year played in the AFC and b/c SD sucked. I know that LT would have made it if their fans would have been paying attention.

LT is the best back in the league.

Green will lose Favre within the next two seasons.

Duece still isn't in an offense that features him.

Lewis ...well..is Lewis....good and bad.

And Portis is going to a change of scenery, and soon to be another chapter in the book of "How RBs survive beyond the Denver O-line." Sure he has every reason to succeed..but he's NOT a for sure slam dunk thing.

I don't think there's any debate here. LT is the man to choose. He's THE featured offensive weapon. He carries AND catches. He's still very young. LT has been #1 or 2 overall pick the last two seasons in most leagues. SD couldn't have been any less competative, and there's amazingly nowhere to go but up.
