Sports fans, riddle me this about my LaDanian Tomlinson theory.
Statistically Tomlinson’s work ethic will surely lead him into the Hall of Fame. In his last years in San Diego I noticed a subtle yet very explicit change in his game. Long story short, I noticed when the Chargers changed their uniform colors Tomlinson also changed his glove colors. He went from his “heyday” black gloves to white gloves. I think the white gloves actually showed defenders when he actually had the ball in his hands, as opposed to the black gloves which might have hid the ball just a nano second more. Furthermore I think with Play Action plays, it was easy to tell if he had the ball in his hands or not, I haven’t checked out other stats of running backs who have switched from black to white gloves though. I just know Tomlinson went back to black with the jets and had done quite well compared to his latter days as a Charger. What do you feel about this theory?
