I've noticed lately (actually, most of the season) that you've not been yourself. Probably all that losing might have something to do with it. But something about your lackluster performances has me a bit concerned. Of course, you've lead us to believe that maybe your heart just isn't in the game anymore. I wonder then, Ladainian, are these thoughts now translating to your performance on the field? If this is truly the case then there is only one thing left for you to do.Move on.
The final nail is pretty much in the coffin for this season. You're now halfway through your 8 year contract. So why not make it official? Ask for a trade or retire. While most would hate to see you go, I would rather see someone back there who doesn't simply go through the motions. Someone who actually seems to give a shit about every single play, regardless of what's happening on the field or what the score may be. Sure, the offensive struggles aren't entirely your fault. But the way you've been playing sure isn't helping. We always seem to be a play late and a touchdown short. It's these lack of plays that are killing us week after week.
If you've truly lost the heart and desire to give it 100% on every single play, then it's time to think about the unthinkable. Otherwise we may go through several years, Shaun Alexander style, wondering "What's wrong with LT?"
Personally, I'm already tired of hearing that question.
