ESPN's Sports Nation is taking notice of what is happening with LaDainian Tomlinson.

73 percent of 4,654 polled by ESPN2’s SportsNation today believe that LaDainian Tomlinson will continue to dominate this season over Terrell Owens, when veterans are concerned.
 
Tomlinson is coming off a 133-yard, two-touchdown rushing performance during Sunday’s Jets win over the Buffalo Bills, and SportsNation co-host Colin Cowherd couldn’t agree with fans more.
 
"I thought L.T. was done. I thought he was shot. I have no problem acknowledging that I whiffed completely," Cowherd said. "He’s averaging six yards per carry and I’m not saying he’s as good as six years ago, but he looks the part. The stiff arm, the power – he makes people miss."

That makes two of us. What Tomlinson is doing is incredible. I know that his offensive line wasn't good last year, but neither was LT. He was one of the worst in the league statistically at making guys miss and breaking tackles a year ago. He was tentative reading his holes also. I'm telling you. I watched him.

No question I would take Tominson over Owens also. One guy is depending on Carson Palmer. The other is depending on getting help from the Jets' offensive line.
