    So nobody wanted to go to sunny san diego to play with LT, Rivers and Gates.

    Nobody wanted to go to san diego to play with Jamal Williams, Shaun Phillips and Merriman......

    Right.....

    Eric Stienbach signed with Cleveland because they are such a sold club....

    Nate Clements went to San Fran because they are just great.....

    Leonard Davis went to Dallas because they have the same coachs as last year.....

    Derrick Dockery went to Buffalo because they are on the verge of a SB......

    Last time I checked I have not heard any players lately say they turned down money to be with a team.....oh wait .... Kris Dielman did that with the Chargers this year.

    Daniel Graham signed with Denver because they out bid Seattle.

    Dre Bly says he wants to be traded to the Redskins ....... then the next week turns around and says Denver is where he wants to stay.....I wonder if that had anything to do with that huge contract extension.

    Travis Henery gets paid a butt load as well....

    It comes down to money......plain and simple......

    There was not on free agent out there this year that san diego wanted to over pay for.....we take care of their own.
    Ahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!

    Now that was priceless. I can't believe you really believe that.

    I'll be sure to bump this post when the Chargers once again fail to win it all.

    You honestly expect people to believe that the Chargers front office said: "You know what? Our team is perfect. Out of the hundreds of free agents, not one of them is worth pursuing. We'll stand pat and be fine."

    The FAAAAAAR more likely scenario was that the free agents they targeted did not want to go to a team in turmoil, which is where the Chargers were after suddenly losing most of their coaching staff.

    You can try and sweeten it up any way you want - it doesn't change the fact that the Chargers have not made any steps forward. Teams that do that usually do not stay ahead, as the rest of the league catches up on them.

    Let's look back to the (2003?) Kansas City Chiefs. They were much like the Chargers. Home field advantage throughout the playoffs, but suffered a dissapointing loss in the divisional round to a team that didn't even go to the Super Bowl.

    What did those Chiefs do in the offseason? They returned 21 of 22 starters. Coach **** Vermeil was happy with his team. All they did was replace their defensive coordinator, because they felt their current team was good enough to get them to the Super Bowl.

    The result? The Chiefs started the season with a flurry of losses and were never a playoff threat in 2004.

    So yes, long live these Chargers! Without Marty, nothing can stop Marty's team!!!

    ...riiiiiiiiiiiight....

    Floyd or Davis does not really matter much. SD has followed a bit in the footsteps of KC. LT and Gates (like Holmes and Gonzo) put so much pressure on the LBs and Safties, that the WRs pretty much get single coverage. They do not have to be good to be effective.

    If our picks and signings work out this year, I think we may have a shot at no FA signings next year. Sunquist said that the 2nd day picks didn't look like they would make the roster this year, so that tells you not too many spots will be open next year. If one of the LBs step up and play well at SAM, I do not see any true need except S and maybe another WR.

    Here is to hoping
    yeah when you're drafting strictly for depth it's a good feeling.

    i have a feeling the guys we draft, if any of them even ever start, won't start till at least 08

    i really bought what adam schefter was saying when he said we were basically drafting for 08

    malcolm floyd put on 15 pounds in the off season, and he's a guy i'm expecting to keep craig davis benched or only working on punt returns, and as for weddle, maybe eric will see the field in rotation but clinton hart gained 10 pounds to play strong safety better, and that guy really has some ball hawking talent.

    as for the other guys we drafted, strictly depth, we were in the weird position of trading away 2 extra picks this season, and one in 08, that we pretty much didn't even need.

    it's like the 06 draft where we ended up cutting our 4 6th/7th round draft picks.

    we just have so much talent right now , it's becoming hard for any of these guys to make the team, and while i loved getting brandon siler in the 7th....i won't be shocked at all if we cut him.

    all that being said, talent is great but if you can't win a playoff game, it's wasted.

    I think no FA signings is something to be proud of.
    exactly

    NE for a while prided themselves on only adding little to no FAs , only depth guys

    i mean even seau was a guy the fished out of the retirement river last year, to their fans it was some kind of huge deal, but to the pats FO it was just depth

    but fans often overstate FA signings

    this season the pats made a huge splash with adalius thomas

    but come on, sammy morris? kyle brady? those are nobodies

    Of course they did. They just didn't get any. Blame the lack of a coach.
    we didn't pursue any FA's, our roster is already stacked.....but ya know, keep telling yourself otherwise to feel safer

    i believe that is much better for chemistry, when you're taking care of your own players, and getting rid of the malcontents.


    Totally agree....I'm actually jealous!

    They'll be fine.

    I'm Just Glad That On the Chiefs "Subtractions" it Says WILL SHEILDS

    First Tait, then Roaf, now Shields.....

    Sorry LJ, but you will be running into a brick wall soon!!! Enjoy being the center-piece of an abysmal offense (FINALLY!!!).
