or a weekend warrior, the goal is the same: You undoubtedly want to lower your chances of incurring an injury while participating in your favorite sport.

While LaDainian has suffered his share of injuries over the years (including last year), he's stayed remarkably healthy in a sport (and at a position) that features constant physical contact. LT split time with Shone Greene but posted 4.2 yards per carry: his best since last winning the rushing title in 2007. Seattle is positioned to make a push to sign Antonio Brown once his suspension ends after Week 8 (Schefter). It's all about injury prevention. The San Diego Chargers selected Tomlinson in the first round of the 2001 NFL Draft, as the fifth overall pick. None of the coaches he had have ever been able to win the big game. He had 16 carries for 82 yards and two touchdowns on the road against the Indianapolis Colts in the Wild Card Round, and caught a one-yard TD against the Patriots in the next game. Whatever the explanation, Tomlinson managed just under 3.6 yards per carry in his 10-game playoff career. In addition to Tomlinson, Philip Rivers, Antonio Gates, Lorenzo Neal, Nick Hardwick, Shawne Merriman and others had either just returned from surgery or were slated for major offseason surgery. I was lucky enough to be in Canton, Ohio, this past weekend to celebrate LaDainian Tomlinson’s induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

He did—and continues to do—tons of charity work and has become a legend in the San Diego community for his philanthropic efforts alone. This isn't to dismiss a wonderful career. But I thought it was worth calling attention one last time over what may be the biggest reason the Chargers’ Hall-worthy trio from that era (Tomlinson, Rivers and Gates) never played in the biggest game. Tomlinson had by far the most effective game of his postseason career in the divisional round, rushing for 125 yards on 25 carries and two touchdowns. The narratives we’ve heard for years that L.T quit on the team and was selfish to take up a roster spot if he couldn’t play are patently misguided. Putting on the Stripes to Ease Pain . If that team had been at full strength – perhaps starting with Tomlinson’s knee – the team might still be in San Diego and the careers of some players on that team would be viewed differently.
