During LT’s recent retirement speech he said a comment that has been widely discussed, picked apart and analyzed around the country. When asked about most likely being a Hall of Famer or having a chance to have won a Super Bowl, which one he would prefer if he could only choose one, LT went on to say:
“Hall of Fame player without a ring, because you’ve got to sacrifice so much individually just to be good,” Tomlinson said. “They draft you individually and you’ve got to back them up and make them right. I think at the end of the day, even though I didn’t win a Super Bowl ring, I felt like I backed them up for drafting me. I backed up the San Diego Chargers for picking me with the fifth pick.” – Tomlinson
Is this the right mindset to have as a player? Does making the Hall of Fame, trump winning a championship if you only get one option? The Ball Hogs were split on this subject as they participated in a spirited debate on this exact subject during a recent recording. Take a listen… which side of this discussion do you find yourself.
