At This Point, Is Tomlinson A Hall-of-Famer?

Has LT already earned his spot in Canton? If LT's career ended today, has what he accomplished in six professional years enough to garner him the requisite votes to become a Hall-of-Famer?

As a fan of not only Tomlinson and the Chargers, but in the NFL game in general, I would argue that LT is a first-ballot honoree. He holds records more impressive than many of his predecessors already enshrined in Canton, Ohio. The impact Tomlinson has had on the Chargers franchise, turning the team from a laughingstock to a powerhouse, as well as his great community work, are enough to permanently place him in a category of the NFL's best ever.

Pete Prisco of CBS Sportsline isn't totally sold on the idea that Tomlinson has already earned a spot in the HOF:

LaDainian Tomlinson, RB, San Diego Chargers
Decision: On the bubble.
If he has another LT-like season in 2007, he's in. So it's basically just a formality. He's halfway to the rushing record.

I think its funny that Prisco wants one more season of LT being LT to convince him that Tomlinson is one of the game's best ever. Does he really hate the Chargers that much?

He's IN already, no doubt! C'mon!? And because he straight-up deserves it, not because of his sterling character or the nice work he does in the community. On the field, over time, and with a variety of players around him; he's earned it; having produced tremendously time and time again. If anybody doubts L.T., my only question would be how in the hell could they ever pick any running back?! L.T. is one of the greatest running backs to have ever played NFL football, easily in the top ten.
