[QUOTE=VincenzoTestaverde;3532927]I don't know how much LT really has left. People blame the O-line [B]but it was pretty much the same O-line that he was tearing it up with a couple years earlier[/B]. He's clearly hit the wall and the whole point of cutting TJ was to replace him with someone younger, cheaper and with fresher legs. I really don't know about this move hopefully it works out.[/QUOTE]
I think the bolded statement above is incorrect. Not only did the OL change and decline in effectiveness, but with all the SD coaching changes, the offensive game plan changed radically with respect to the running game. Both Sproles and LT had terrible YPC. Also, LT was taken out of the short passing game in favor of Sproles. If it were just LT whose run production declined, then I'd be more worried, but it was the entirety of the Chargers running game that regressed.
