I never thought of this!
If that truly is the case, then he deserves even more praise for thinking of it.
Bit of a stretch, but the visor is a bit "cheap."
Eh, don't buy it. I just think he's by far the best player in the NFL right now and there is absolutely nothing that anyone can do to stop him. To say that his visor is somehow playing a part in it, no. Like I said, I just don't buy it.
Wow. That's a major hate post right there. sure, There's a bit of a point in the post but it's really coming from an envious point of view. Funny.
Thank heavens you didn't. That politically correct bastid ought to be taken out behind the woodshed and made to cry for real.
Whoever came up with that is pretty lame. Must be a San Diego division rival whinning.
actually it prevents the defense from reading his eyes. I think the NFL needs to have independent docs instead of the players own.
What's next? A short NBA player with stilts?
This is one of the most amusing things I have read in awhile.
LT wears a visor cause he gets migraines apparently.
Like Bryan said thought... thats a bit of a stretch.
I think visors just look cool.
So. Would any of you not trade our RB tandem for LT?
So shut up - just sit back and enjoy the best back in the game.
Like other backs (see Faulk, Marshall), he has an uphill battle to become the top overall RB in league history. But if over the next 6 years he can repeat what he's done in his first 6 -- then we all need to recognize him as the best.
It does prevent players from watching his eyes....its a valid point.
Man, that is reaching. Unless there is a NFL rule against wearing tinted visor, I don't see anything wrong with it.
LT was medically cleared to.
If he didnt have one, do you really think guys would be tackling LT in the open field more easily? The game moves so fast that no one is able to react fast enough to where someones eyes are directed that it would give them any real advantage in tackling him. It's true that you can tell the ball is about to be caught when a receivers eyes widen, but how many deep routes is LT running where he's catching the ball over the shoulder that that would make any difference? This is one of the dumbest, least thought out posts I've read before
But the point made in the little article was that he doesn't wear any shades or anything while he doesn't have his helmet on or anything....it seems his eyes only hurt if he has a helmet on.....
Also... he keeps it on at night.
I could see the sun affecting him but stadium lighting?
LT is the greatest back since Emmitt ......
Nothing wrong with giving the kid his props.
I thought the article was nothing more that amusing.
I wish more guys were allowed to wear the dark tint.
Looks bad ***.
I'm sure that LT is not the only player who has worn a dark visor. Now, if all of sudden the RB's, WR's, & QB's who have worn the dark visors ended up as All Pro's over the last 10 years then you may have an argument. But that has hardly been the case.
Besides, that cat is so quick of his cuts, he could eyes sticking out of the top of his helmet and they still wouldn't get to him.
I want Branch pretty badly.
