LaDainian Tomlinson apparently does not view the upcoming season as his last.
"I just think how I feel, obviously God willing and knock on wood and all that stuff, how I feel physically, mentally that's why I can say I'm going to continue to play after this year," Tomlinson said yesterday.
With three young running backs on the depth chart figuring to get more work in the future, I get the impression Tomlinson will need to continue his career elsewhere if he wants to play after this season. Joe McKnight figures to get more prominent work as a pass catching threat and a third down back once the team feels comfortable with him. He will definitely help the youngsters this year in showing them how to approach their preparation. He also needs to go to school with them on pass blocking. That is an area that has been lacking from the backs aside from LT.
