Wow, that's great! We really are lucky to get a guy like LT for his entire career. A great job of foresight by the Chargers Front Office. Even the most cynical will have trouble finding anything wrong with this. Hats off to everyone involved in this!

I agree. LT will go down as one of the Chargers' greatest ever. Right next to the likes of Fouts and Alworth!

I'm remembering how the Cubs used to call Ernie Banks "Mr. Cub". I think this long term contract now makes LT, Mr. Charger. i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif

Looks like San Diego has another Tony Gwynn to get behind. This news has really made my week and puts the whole Rivers fiasco into perspective! i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif

Hi guys and gals, a double secret forum wild.

This is very good news all around for the chargers. Like people have mentioned. It means they do shell out the bucks. And that they're getting things organized for the future now. Somehow I see this also as a way to tell Rivers they do mean buisness and are building a good team. It sure would be nice to have him join in as soon as possible. . Rivers will be a good one.

Hey Foobs-

Nice to finally be able to put a face with your handle. i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif Like most of us, I'm very pleased with the direction AJ is taking this team. Get a few more lineman on offense and bring in some bruisers on defense and we'll be playoff contenders...

Don't forget the earlier move to get a good contract with Eric Parker - that's another very good move.

I'm totally elated over this contract extension to LT.

This really takes some spin off Sexton and Rivers arguements. It shuts up the entire crowd who chants, "Spanos is cheap" and "The Chargers don't want to win" ......

Great job Bolts!

Props to the Spanos'! Props to AJ! And big props to LT!i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif

I never expected this signing to happen anywhere's near this early, but it's great news...and it's news and moves like this that will dispel once-and-for-all the negative light our Team is held in by many outside of these pages. But that's a side-effect, and bottomline this is a great move for the Chargers to have made. It will have many good repercussions in the months and years ahead. Great job addressing LT's contract extension this early and getting it done ! Can't say how pleased I am about this.

You should probably test in the "Hey all (Introduce yourself here!)" thread. At least you didn't dig up any painful memories. Welcome. :Beer: :D

It is truly rare that a quality running back in this day and age, commits his whole career to one team, and one city.

LT is Mr. Charger, forever

Does anyone have a pic of the lightning bolt tattoo that he has on his calf? He got it around the time he signed this, cus he said he would be a charger for life.

Bet you didn't realize that when you post in a real old thread, it bumps that thread back to the top. ;)

We call it "thread necromancy," because it's like raising the dead.

No worries at all. It just confused the heck out of me (not that difficult a task, I'll admit.)
