LaDainian Tomlinson – 2006
Quarterbacks have won the overwhelming majority of MVP awards in the 21st Century. However, some players made their case inarguable because they had elite years. In 2006, Tomlinson lit up the NFL with the Chargers as he scored a record 31 touchdowns. Nobody could handle the amazing running back because he had everything.
Meanwhile, Tomlinson rushed for 1,815 yards with over 506 receiving yards. It’s rare that a running back has a season like this but it was one that fans will never forget. Many people think that Tomlinson was one of the best in his position of all time because of his consistent excellence (via ESPN).
