I for one am cheering for LT2. He absolutely reminds me of the KC chapter in Marcus Allen's career.

I'd like to see a player make a serious push for the all time leading rusher position.

Just one stipulation, if you pass Payton, make sure you pass Smith, deal Tomlinson?

Why, you think LT taking alot of HGH too?

Every time I hear "fountain of youth" with regards to LT2, I immediately think, "that's what they call HGH."

I hope that's not the case and it's a matter of a great line and being healthy. Considering how huge some of the holes I've seen the Jets O-line open for LT2, it has to be a factor.

LT looked like new last night. Who wouldn't want to run behind that OL? They make any RB look like a stud.
