A better question: Who is LT?

    Forget about deciding who is the best RB to wear an NFL uniform ... who is LT? I mean, really ... if only one player in league history had the right to be called LT, would it be Lawrence Taylor or LaDainian Tomlinson?

    Some publications have fun with choosing one player for all time for each jersey number. What about nicknames or initials? Who's your LT? Should there be a Madden playoff to decide?

    Lawrence Taylor: LT
    LaDainian Tomlinson: L-TD

    There's only one LT and he's done more cocaine than Whitney and Bobby combined.

    Only one LT. Man, I wish I could tell my best LT (Taylor) story, but unfortunately, I can't give vital details.

    But just as a tease... It involved LT and an absolutely frightened-looking woman who probably had no clue who he is. It ended with him slinking away with his head down and his shoulders slumped, and me and a workmate actually feeling sorry for him. There was no violence involved.

    EDIT: From a PM I got... NO, it doesn't involve a hooker. For that matter, it doesn't involve anything illegal or that LT needs to feel remorseful about.

    This has always bugged me, being a fan of the original one and only. LDT or LTD is totally fine with me. Not LT, tho.

    If LaDainian Tomlinson breaks Joe Theismann's other leg, I'll call him LT. :) ;D :D

    wouldn't it be better, chuck, if tomlinson broke theismann's jaw and knocked out a few teeth so he couldn't talk?

    It's definitely Taylor. I hate giving the same nickname to different people. Can't we be more original to that? Why not call him Shades or something?

    Pudge is the other one for me. Pudge was Carlton Fisk when I was a kid, know Ivan Rodriguez is exclusively Pudge. STOP IT!!!

    LaDainian will always be L-Diddy to me.
