Why LaDainian Tomlinson Chose the Jets

SI's Jim Trotter explains why LaDainian Tomlison decided to become a Jet instead of a Viking.

 

I don't think anybody should be surprised by any of this.

Even with Favre, the Vikings have a tougher road to the title. They don't have a big margin for error in the regular season. The Jets are built to win on the road. They don't necessarily need home field advantage to go far. The Vikings do. Favre plays very poorly in bad weather. They need to avoid January games in cold weather, which means staying in their dome.
