LaDainian Tomlinson of the San Diego Chargers has been named the AP Most Valuable Player in the NFL.
Record-setting LaDainian Tomlinson of the San Diego Chargers ran away with The Associated Press NFL Most Valuable Player award Thursday the way he eluded defenders in leading his team to the AFC’s best record (14-2) and a favorite’s role for the Super Bowl.
“When you’re MVP of the league, it’s a great accomplishment,” Tomlinson said, adding the honor means “that I’ve had a great year, that’s all, on a great team.”
But with so much more on the horizon, he hopes.
“I would feel so much better about winning if we win the Super Bowl. It would feel like it would be everything,” Tomlinson said.
Tomlinson, who broke Shaun Alexander’s league record for touchdowns by scoring 31 (28 rushing) and also threw for two scores, had one of the greatest seasons in NFL history. He rushed for a league-high 1,815 yards on 348 carries, had 56 receptions for 508 yards and was 2-for-3 as a passer, both completions for scores, giving the Chargers running back six in his six-year career, tying him for second among non-quarterbacks.
This was really a no brainier as LT had what one could argue as the best season ever breaking Alexanderâ€™s record and leading his team to 11-2.
Drew Bree’s was a distant second receiving 4 votes while Peyton Manning received only two votes. LT received 44 total votes.
The question is now can he carry his team to a Super Bowl Win?
