  • Keenan Allen: this will not end well for the Chargers

    Why did Keenan Allen last until the 3rd round of the 2013 draft? Because he's a flake. I look forward to him being a locker room cancer for the Chuggers for the next few years. Mwaah-aaah-aaah!

    "After I didn't play after that first game," Allen said, via U-T San Diego, "I was about another snap away of not playing from quitting."

    He was serious, too.

    After three seasons playing his college ball at Cal, Allen contemplated going back to Berkeley to finish his degree, with an eye toward perhaps becoming a music producer. He even leaned on his mother for guidance.

    "'I need help. I'm losing. I'm about to quit,'" Allen recalled of his conversation. "(I wasn't) living up to my expectations of starting. I've never been a role player-type guy. Not easy at all. ... I've never had to do it before. I never had to adjust."

    well, getting pd as opposed to not getting pd will probably stop the thinking he had in college. There arent too many people who are the same person they were even a couple years ago much less with the change of no more school and now have more $ then you ever had

        The problem is the kid currently appears to be the most talented WR not named DT in the AFC West. He will be starting for quite some time.

              They probably won't re-sign him in four years when his deal is up, so yeah this may not end well for them.

              Dude can ball though.

                He is a starter and should not have to worry about being just a role player. Chargers got rid of Vincent Jackson and that was his competition.

                  I'll bet many young players feel this way, but most are smart enough to keep their mouth shut about it.

                    He's got that Maurice Clarett look about him, doesn't he?

                      It's apparently stupid thread time at the OM.

                        Eagerly awaiting the future implosion of a division rival? Not stupid at all!

                        Clouds continue to gather over the NFL draft status of former Cal wide receiver Keenan Allen after ESPN.com reported Tuesday that his drug test at the combine was red-flagged.

                        An NFL scout discussed Allen on the condition of anonymity because team policy prohibits him from speaking on the record.

                        "It's a real issue for him," the scout said. "There were already character concerns. His stock will drop significantly. ... He didn't interview great at the combine. People thought he was big-timing them -- everything was on his terms. And now this. He was probably in the 15-25 range before. But now he's probably late second round."

                          A lot of talent, a lot of concerns. I was surprised he dropped that far, even with the character and knee issues. He didn't run fast either. Good get for the Bolts.

                            He's already had a better career than most of the Broncos third round picks. Literally nothing concerning. He's not getting paid a critical amount.

                              LOTS of players were ready to quit at one point early in the career, it's the harsh reality of the NFL.
