LaDainian Tomlinson Named AFC Offensive Player of the Week

Jets' running back LaDainian Tomlinson has done nothing but prove doubters wrong this season. As such, he was recently named AFC Offensive Player of the Week for his 19 carries/133 yard/2 TD performance last week against the Bills. 

Eat it, A.J. Smith --- for the way you threw L.T. out like dirty laundry who was nothing but loyal to your organization, and also for the way you mocked him over his heart-felt blog post about the Chargers.

Well, he's not your problem now, because he's now here wearing green and looking sexy doing so, with 56 rushes for 341 yards and 3 TDs thus far this year.

That's right --- an amazing 6.1 YPC.

Tomlinson has shown us he can still turn on his burst speed in the open field, and is still a force to reckon with running in between the tackles as well. What a phenomenal pickup this has turned out to be, so kudos to GM Mike Tannenbaum and Jets' front office for getting it done on the cheap.

Hey A.J., the old man's still got it!
