Tomlinson or Sproles?
We’re flipping back to football for a couple days after doing some baseball.
The San Diego Chargers, my pick to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl this year, host the Ravens on Sunday.
Should be a good game, and we’ll make predictions Friday.
But here’s what I want to know from you today:
Which running back gives the Chargers a better chance to win these days: Darren Sproles or LaDainian Tomlinson?
Tomlinson injured his ankle last Monday and was watching on the sidelines as the Chargers and Sproles made their final comeback against the Oakland Raiders. But there are some that believe LT should have stayed on the sidelines regardless.
That the short and shifty Sproles is a more effective weapon these days.
I am not ready to believe it. Not yet anyway. I think Tomlinson still has plenty left in the tank. I think he is still a feature back. I think he is still the best running back in San Diego.
Sproles has looked good, very good, at times, but he has never been a feature back before. So I can't automatically give him props over Tomlinson.
I may be in the minority, though.
Take away the fact that LT may be a little banged up right now, and answer this question: Who is the better back for 2009, LT or Sproles?
