The Chargers secured their left tackle situation today with the signing of LT Jared Gaither to a 4-year deal. The contract details have not come out yet, but this is a big move buy the Bolts to secure the protection for Philip Rivers. Gaither will be the starting left tackle when we open the season.

Now it’s time to focus on defense!

    Yeah. This is great news. AJ has hit two home runs in two days. We must be dreaming.

         @RussellGrant  @BoJackRusso hahahhahah.. that is so good

      • BoJackRusso

         @RussellGrant Haha @ Russell! OK this one is for Cindi and Ernie. I know neither of you are are Clary or Dombo fans. I STILL say move Dombrowski back inside to guard where he belongs (his natural position) and let him take over for Dirty Dielmans vacancy. I know he didn’t do that well this year, but he filled in awesome for #73MM when he was hurt 2 years ago and filled in other spots along the line; remember?
        I think he deserves a second chance at RG now that Diel is gone. He is a much bigger body than Ty Green and I think he’s a better blocker anyway. I know this is up to Hal Hunter but AJ has tendered Dombo. What do you all think?
         
        Don’t know what else AJ has planned in the FA game but if this happened, we could use the draft completely on our glaring defensive needs.

           @BoJackRusso  @RussellGrant He is lacking intensity, drive and smarts… oh and discipline.  If they are hell bent on keeping him then they have to move him back inside.  And he needs to read at least one book.  ha ha

        • BoJackRusso

           @CindiSpears  @RussellGrant Harsh! LOL. I still think he deserves a shot. I think sucking at tackle messed with his head. He’s a guard.

  • RussellGrant

    OK.  Things are getting settled on the offensive side.  Keep ‘em coming!

    Good we need this guy now more then ever
