Tomlinson Transitioning to the Jets

Dennis Waszak Jr., of the Associated Press, reports that LaDainian Tomlinson is ready to prove all the doubters wrong and show he still has something left in the tank.

“I feel pretty confident,” he said. “I mean, it’s football, something I’ve been doing all my life. I don’t think that will ever change.”

“It’s the same offense,” said Tomlinson, who turns 31 on June 23. “So, most of the things, I can relate to what I’ve done before so I’m able to pick it up and keep going. A little difference is I’m moving around, especially in passing situations, and moving all over the place—motioning, shifts—so those are the kinds of things I’ve got to get used to.”

“I feel great,” he said. “I’m just rolling right along.”

The Jets don’t need Tomlinson to recapture his 2006 form and I don’t think anyone, including Tomlinson himself, believes he will.

All they need is for Tomlinson to give Shonn Greene a breather a few times per game. Somewhere between five and ten touches touches sounds about right.

While I still believe, they should have kept Thomas Jones, I’m starting to open up to the though of L.T. in the green and white.
