With the recent retirement of the great Ladainian Tomlinson, it seems natural to look around the league and look for other aging, ringless, pro bowl caliber veterans. LT now joins an unlucky fraternity that includes the likes of Dan Marino, Warren Moon, and Jim Kelly. No one would ever question the incredible talent Tomlinson possessed but he will be remembered by many as one of the greatest players to never win a Super Bowl. Despite LT’s misfortune of never making it over that final hurdle he remained a class act, returning to the organization that drafted him, and retiring proudly as a Charger.
While I’m sure most of us will safely assume the Miami Dolphins will not be winning it all this coming season, I do question the future and legacy of one of their players. If you have a look at the Bengals franchise record book you will see that almost every Bengals receiving record is held by one Chad Javon Johnson. Or um Ochocinco… Regardless of what you call him or how you feel about him, Chad’s accomplishments while a Bengal speak for themselves. Obviously Chad didn’t let them, but that was part of his appeal.
