In five years, LaDainian Tomlinson will likely be a first ballot Hall of Famer. And when he gets to that point, he wants an old friend of ours to present him in Canton. LT said this week that he wants former Chiefs and Chargers coach Marty Schottenheimer to present him at the Hall of Fame ceremonies.

Schottemheimer, of course, was the Chargers coach from 2002-06, some of the best years of LT's career. Here's what Marty said about LT:

"The numbers aside, he just brought a tremendous threat to every opponent," said Schottenheimer. "Not only did he have the ability to run the football but he also could catch it and gain yards after the catch. I think he posed considerable problems to every opponent because of his skill set, the versatility that he brought to his game. All of that pales in comparison to the quality of the young man. He is one of the finest young men I have ever been around in football or any area of my life."

I don't have a beef with LT. He played for a rival but he didn't talk a lot of trash and didn't make it about him.
