I'm sure he didn't mean it, but it appeared LT's subconscious flipped off a reporter who put down his running game due to the beat up O-line. The question starts at 4:04. LT seemed pretty peeved with all the stupid questions leading up to this one too. :D Too funny!

No I was just suggesting a modified term given the circumstances. So here's your thunder back! :Bolt:

He didn't flip off the reporter, Philly Billy just walked in and he was just acknowledging him.

I got something profound out of this. We fans often complain about the money these guys make, but my hat's off to them for the way they handle the media and their annoying questions without losing it, most of the time anyway.

One of the things that led to Ryan Leaf's demise was the inability to deal with the media when he blew up at that reporter in KC. Part of your job as a player is to help the team have a good public image, for some that means putting up with reporters.

Wow, sounds like LT is getting kinda pissed about the play calling from Cam. It's hard to argue, though, the game plan was effective.

I'm sure LT will have some fun on Sunday against the Jets with that low-ranked run defense. I'm sure all will be forgiven!

:( Not the best Idea - But also not the first time caught on tape by an NFL Player that gets frustrated!
LT is better than this image - But He too is human!!

LT is such a class act though, even with those annoying reporters he would never act like B.O.;)

Naw, don't think it was that... more likely it was the reporters' idiocy that had him riled a tad... you can almost read on his forehead, "Dude, you don't know jack about football" and later "Don't be dissing my O-Line" :D

As far as the original post... you guys are really reaching, that was definitely not a flip... just an innocent nose scratch. Index finger isn't used any more often than the ring or middle for that task on average ;)

Guys, guys, guys....I didn't say LT flipped off the reporter, it was his "little man". And as Kramer says, "The little man knows all."

I just realized there is a Seinfeld episode about this very same situation when George thinks a waitress keeps flipping him off because she uses her middle finger to scratch her nose. Sorry, but I am a Seinfeld junkie. :D

I doubt LT's upset with Cam's playcalling. Last weekend Cam opened it up. Brees threw it all day while the Chiefs kept on blitzing. With our banged up O-Line and with the Eagles & Chiefs keying in on Prime Target #1 LT about 75% of the time. How could he be upset with Cam's playcalling? He understands our guys are banged up and every teams loading up to shut down our running game. I'm sure he just wants to win no matter how he has to get it done. Be it through the air or on the ground. He's the ultimate team player, not at all about padding his stats. I'm confident that teams are really starting to respect our aerial attack. That's going to take allot of pressure off of LT. He won't be facing 9 guy's in the box all day long. He knows his time is coming and he's about to break out another 200 yd performance any week now. You watch, LT's hungry and other teams are starting to show respect. Especially because he's shown that he can throw the rock pretty well when he has to.

He's like Vick only better, he's rarely injured... and he's all CHARGER!!!

Seriously.....that was just an innocent nose scratch. I can't believe I fell for that and watched the video. LT is far more classy than that.

LT is the ultimate team guy, and seems to not hate the press too much, seems like he's very accessible

I dont think LT is mad about the play calling. he wants the win rather then records and everything of that sort. If being a decoy helps the team win then so be it. Dont worry LT is due for a break out on the ground vs the Jets, what are tehy 29th vs the run or is that vs the pass lol.
