Earth to LaDainian Tomlinson: Go Away

I wasn’t going to take a whole post to speak about this, but the more and more I heard and thought about it, I had to get this off my chest. It seems, as we have all heard, that former Jets players have taken to the airwaves to knock their former team. Kris Jenkins has made this a habit, as he went as far as to say that Mark Sanchez needed to be put out of his misery, garnering a lot of anger from Twitter.

These days, it’s LaDainian Tomlinson who has begun to make a career out of bashing his old team. He is an analyst for the NFL Network now, and has been making his way through “Radio Row” at the Super Bowl this week, never seeing a microphone that he didn’t like. But it didn’t start this week.

Remember earlier this season, when there were “anonymous sources” coming out of the Jets locker room, bashing Tim Tebow? Tomlinson accused Antonio Cromartie and Bart Scott of being the leaks. First of all, any Jets fan knows that these are two guys that put their names on everything they do. We don’t have to be in the locker room to have known that this was farther from the truth. Then, after both players denied it, Tomlinson backed off his claims with the following:

“Listen, I was just speculating on things,” he said. “I’m not sure who said it, but I know there is a problem and that there has been one for years.”

Let’s take that apart for a minute. First of all, LaDainian is a coward, who doesn’t stand up for what he believes to be true. Maybe he was afraid that those two guys were going to come and kick his behind. Secondly, he is clueless. He obviously had no pulse of what was going on, to get it all wrong. But then, he says that there was a problem for years? HE WASN’T THERE FOR YEARS! He was part of an 11-5 team and an 8-8 team that fell apart at the end. He wasn’t there to know about problems for years. LaDainian, just stop.

    Not to mention Mark Brunell, the guy we got specifically “to take him in the film room and say, ‘This is what you look for.’ And then take him on the practice field and say, ‘This is how you practice, this is how you perform on Sundays.’ “

    • TheJetPress

      very true…it’s fun when former Jets only see what they want to see, isn’t it?

    • Dustin Schrank

      ive been a jets fan for a long long time so dont take offense when I say I would start brunell(i dont care if hes 80) over sanchez

      • TheJetPress

        You must be a fan of the J-E-T Press because you said that, knowing I am a fan of Sanchez. No offense taken, all Jets fans are welcome to have whatever opinion they like.

    Wow. I don’t believe I have ever read a more biased, poorly written, and down right stupid article before in my life. I don’t even know where to start in my criticisms of this “article”. First of all, he is an analyst, and if you would look at the questions he was asked before your quotes of him, you would see that they’re very one directional with the obvious answer almost implied. How do you expect him to answer? Secondly, you say that everyone bashes on the jets including former players. That’s because the locker room is poisonous and the jets had more drama surrounding the team than an episode of the jersey shore. So of course everyone will be bashing the jets because they brought it all on themselves. They’re not being picked on. And that stems from Rex Ryan but that’s a whole other topic. I hope the author of this trash reads this. You go away and don’t come back until you learn to get some perspective and general knowledge about football. What a load of garbage.

    • TheJetPress

      Take it easy man….you don’t have to agree with it. I’m sorry you don’t agree with my general knowledge of football, feel free to not come back.

      • Adam

        Feel free not to come back lol. Isn’t that essentially what your saying to LT when tell him to go away? That’s your answer for everything huh?

        • TheJetPress

          No, if you read other articles here besides the one you would know that. My “not come back” is my answer to people that base their opinion on one article they read.

          • Adam

            I guess your right to be fair I haven’t read your other articles so I can’t say if your knowledge of football is good or not so I will change my stance to say that “this” article didn’t have good perspective.

          • TheJetPress

            There you go. Read other stuff on here, I don’t expect people to agree with everything I write. It’s all about debate.

            And you don’t have to jump ugly with me about it by the way….feel free to disagree without basically calling me a moron LOL. I don’t care when people disagree I love to debate football with people.

          • Adam

            Awww now I feel bad….sounds good though! FOOTBALL!!!!

          • TheJetPress

            Hahah, no need to feel bad LOL. See? I knew you were a good guy…you had me at “football!!!”. Please feel free to read, and share your opinions.

            I love smart commentary from my readers, and I get the feeling you have some to add. Vibe that I get that you are a smart guy.

          • Adam

            You’ve totally broken down all my Tomlinson defenses and disarmed me with kindness LOL I will be back!

          • TheJetPress

            Yes! That’s my job as a Jets fan, we have to be kind otherwise what do we have left? We don’t have a lot of success to fall back on LOL. Welcome to the jet press, read all you like, and all my writers.

          • TheJetPress

            this could be the beginning of beautiful football debate between you and me…since now I know for sure that you are a new reader…welcome!

  • Aja Munsell

    Tomlinson was a whiner and a fool in SD, continued to be one in NY and, I’m sure that wherever he is now, he still is both.
