-he has at least 1,000 yards rushing in every season in the nfl of his career

-he has had at least 10 TDs in all his seasons and the all time record 28 TDs

-he has had 50 catches in every year and he has thrown 7 passing Tds his entire career.

-he is a great back because not only his stats r good he is a great roll model and leader and a great pass blocker

that is very true, statistically lt has been great, but i believe the best back in the game today is brian westbrook. He is jsut as versitile, in fact an even better reciever, he led the eagles this year in both rushing and recievin, he is also a very good blocker and a very smart player.

that is becaus look at philly they recervers arnt the greatest they dont have a Antonio Gates or Vincent Jackson, or Chris Chambers that can catch the ball so they don't have to go to LT so much. Also LT started right out of college...Brian didn't start until his 3rd year. Westbrook never scored more than 7 TDs in a season. LT has scored over 10 every season.

There are more reasons but i don't want to run out of ammo in 2 rounds.

your argument of brian starting 3 yrs after college, is irrivelavant to the fact that he is the best rb in the game right now. Brian may not score, but without him the eagles are nothing, if you look at the chargers, although lt is a great rb, he can be replaced by michael turner, due to their great offensive line and the blocking of the best full back in the game lorenzo neal. Speaking of blocking, westbrook is one of the best blocking backs in the game, making him extremely expendable on third down plays

Yes that is very true westbrook is a good blocker... Also that LT can be replaced but noone on that roster has big enough feet to fill his shoes... brian westbrook has a great offence line but yet he still don't do as good as LT and why is that? I have more reason's but i have to go to my wrestling tournament so lets see what you can bring to the table for round three...

ok that may be true, but brian westbrook is on a team with a struggling defense so he is never on the field, and by the time he is on the field they can not run the ball because they are down by too much,lt has a good defensive that makes plays and allows for lt to get at least 20 touches a game, westbrook is the most underrated rb in the game, if you ask a defensive player one guy who is dangerous he is certainly one of the first people mentioned. lt is also not a fully developed pass blocker and some times isn't the greatest leader, if he does not get the ball he cries. Brian Westbrook has stuck it out in philly and has been able to play great and be a leader in tought times in philly, westbrook also carried the eagles to a superbowl several years ago, until lt does that, then he can be considered the leagues best rb

Yes, Landanian Tomlinson is the best RB in the NFL today, I'll give you that. But in a matter of years, he will be quickly and effeciently surpassed by the RB of the future: Adrian Peterson.
