Last week, LaDainian Tomlinson announced his retirement after 11 years in the NFL.  While he will be remembered for his incredible agility and top-tier production (he’s ranked seventh all-time in all-purpose yards, and had a shorter career than any player ranked above him), just as notable is his durability.  From 2001-2008, Tomlinson carried the ball 290 or more times in eight straight seasons (the longest streak since Eddie George did the same from 1996-2003).  Over that stretch, Tomlinson never played in fewer than 15 games (and never played in fewer than 14 in any year of his career).
