Tomlinson gets airtime

Posted by ESPN.com's Bill Williamson

The latest episode of HBO's "Hard Knocks" featured the Cowboys' preseason game at San Diego.

The cameras caught a great pregame moment when Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson (just voted the Chargers' all-time franchise player) was chatting with Dallas coach Wade Phillips. The two knew each other from Phillips' days as the Chargers' defensive coordinator.

Tomlinson told Phillips that the two teams should play their final game of the season against each other. Phillips laughed and told Tomlinson it was a good idea.

Tomlinson was not predicting that the Chargers and Cowboys would meet in the Super Bowl. He was having fun with a friend, talking about how cool it would be.

My thought when I watched that moment on the show: It's possible. Very possible.
