You read my posts so much, figured you'd see the "barring injury" part I put in them.

Injuries suck but What was AJ thinking when he signed him with his previous back injuries? I mean the guy wasn't even an upgrade to barry richardson last year...

Good QB's make the line better. Rivers is a really good QB.

Reports are saying it was a back spasm/cramp. Nothing to see here.

I'm wondering how Chargers do rushing the passer. That was always something they did well. Just don't see the pass rushers to do it. What do you think?

Well, the depth is much better this year at OLB.

Philips and Jarret Johnson are the starters.

Barnes/Ingram/English are the backup/situational rushers.

On paper, I love the OLBs we have this year. This is assuming Ingram turns out to the beast he's hyped up to be.

This LB roster blows away the one last year, where we had scrubs like Darryl Gamble and Bront Bird and washed up vets like Travis LaBoy.

Last but not least, signing Aubrayo Franklin at NT is huge because it should allow guys like Cam Thomas and Antonio Garay to move to DT on passing downs because their strength is more on collapsing the pocket rather than being run stoppers like Franklin.

The biggest upgrade is hopefully at DC with Pagano. Manusky was one of the worst DCs I can remember in a long time.

The run defense is still a big concern for me. Franklin and Johnson should be big upgrades for the run defense but is it enough? The inside linebackers position looks weak. Butler is already a stud in the making so one spot is solidified but it's going to either be the aging Takeo Spikes, an unproven guy in Jonas Muton or journeyman in Demorrio Williams starting next to him. Not impressed with that group at all.

It was nothing serious with the injury to Jared Gaither. Your just mad because the Chiefs crapped the bed with jared gaither. They couldn't get anything out of him and the Chargers picked him up and he seemed to solidified that whole Chargers oline.


If I was you I would worry about AKevin Boss health. The guy has had five or six concussions with the Giants, and had two more with the Raiders.

When you had that many your more prone to getting another one. It not a question of If but when with Kevin Boss.

Can Eric Winston play LT in the NFL. That where jared gaither playing for the Chargers.(he looked pretty good when he wasn't wearing that hideous Chiefs uniform). When you figure that into the equation. Even you have to admit it Jared Gaither>>>>>>>>>> Eric Winston.

If you knew anything about Jared Gaither, than you'd know that switching positions wasn't the reason he was cut from the Chiefs...dumbass

What does that have to do with Winston NOT being a better player?

Winston is a far better player and it isn't close.

Winston is good in a zone blocking scheme. SD rely more on man than Houston does so Gaither is more of a fit, especially since he had played with Cam before in a similar system. Scheme can sometimes be just as important as the players themselves. And Gaither seems to fit our offensive style than yours.
