LaDainian Tomlinson prefers the Hall of Fame over a Super Bowl ring

Former NFL running back LaDainian Tomlinson told NBC Sports Talk that he’d much rather be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame then win a Super Bowl.

“Hall of Fame player without a ring, because you’ve got to sacrifice so much individually just to be good,” Tomlinson said, via “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.”

I would’ve been shocked if Tomlinson said that he’d much rather have a Super Bowl then a bust in Canton, since he’ll obviously never win a championship.  It sounds like to me he’s come to terms with the fact that he’ll never be a world champion.
