A.J. I hate you!!!….Or do I?

Charger faithful-

Well, Boltfans, I am still a little bit sick to my stomach. Why, you ask? Has nothing to do with four #83 jerseys being in my closet with the last name of JACKSON. VJax did as should have been expected….. He followed the dough. I threw up in my mouth approximately 47 times listening to his Buccaneer press conference. Ok, 48 times….

But!!!!! A big, Craig Davis, but I have no idea who that is you have drafted A.J. BUT……But after further review, seeing what our “faithful leader” has done to replace Vincent and sign other key cogs to what can be a team to “get us into the tournament”……I’m cautiously optimistic. Okay, you got me again…. I am straight up giddy as a school girl on spring break!!

Listen, Boltheads!!! We have needed, for quite some time, to add some “physical presence” to this team. I have spoken, ad nauseam, to my father, ” Dad, we need some guys to come in and hit people in the mouth and not being sorry for doing so!!” Not Wilhelm style, Steve Foley style….. Minus the bullet holes! We, as fans, deserve far better than the last……well, let’s go with the last 2 years out of the playoffs…Anyway, we ALL deserve what has happened so far, so to speak. JJ, McClain, Meachem, and Royal, etc. I know that Meachem and Royal aren’t exactly “tough guys”, but good luck catching them! A.J., doing what he is best at doing; and that happens to be “re-tooling while my ass is on the line” as opposed to “re-tooling.”  I’ll be the first to say I am completely sick of being the “best team on paper.” Not so much this past year, I know. But if A.J. can continue by adding some depth on both the offensive and defensive lines then I am …I am…realizing that the sickness in my stomach comes from far too much Busch light and cheap hot wings!

Listen, this is my first article on here and I hope it’s not the last. I realize that I have not provided an answer to the lack of pass rush or a legitimate strong safety. In fact, I haven’t even touched on what the draft should look like for our Chargers. But, I will be submitting my Chargers Mock draft tomorrow…..or in the next 3 and a half or four hours. Thanks for listening!


P.S. Royal, really glad we picked you up but don’t even THINK about the number 19!!

    Don’t be scared, I’m ready for all takers!!  Mock draft with comments will be done in about an hour or so!

    • Calum

       @BoogaP Looking forward to it. and good luck with your articles! :)

      • BoogaP

         Thanks Calum!!  I will do my best to entertain….Oh, wait!  And inform!!
        Nite everybody…Mock in the morning pacific time! 

  • CindiSpears

    I’m pretty sure I just hate him.  Too much history to make me forget with a couple good moves.  That said, how do you feel about most of the mock drafts showing we pick a Tackle in the first round?

    • BoogaP

       Cindi-  Thanks for your inquiry.  And, btw, i love your stuff, mostly. 
       Being a stay at home dad, I have had more than ample opportunity to “research” what other websites predict we will take in the upcoming draft.  Tackle has been a position that has been, and should be, left in the dust….. Why, you ask? Just an opinion….. Or fact. As of late that includes Mike Adams, Jonathan Martin, etc. I get it.
        Even the most novice of mocks have had us grabbing a guy in the front seven on defense.  Pass-rushing LB mostly. Courtney Upshaw????  No, thanks. I believe that in a Nick Saban defense, he may have already reached his potential.  Not solely due to Saban’s coaching ability, but, he happened to be surrounded by some of the best athletes in FBS.  I have watched the Senior bowl and was NOT impressed by his lack of explosiveness and being dominated by Mike Adams…..Elite comp should equal elite performance.  Big players make big plays on big days. 
      That being said…… Adams is also not a guy I want.  19 reps on the bench most likely means that it will be difficult to contend with DEs with a strong bullrush.
      I know about Clary and hope for a healthy RG Vasquez, as all do.   I am just not sold on any tackles at #18.  I want to be.  I know where Clary “ranks” so to speak.  My mock comes out tomorrow….. Yes, Harrison Smith will be on there…. When and where though?
      Thanks again!!!!

    He should write this to the song of “Camp Granada”

    • BoogaP

       Forgive me for doing my research.  This has nothng to do with your silly reply.  You were “unable” to see the Texans letting Mario go.  You also requested that we bring in Brandon Flowers… Benefit of the doubt, meaning you meant Carr….We, possibly, need another corner.  Yes, i looked at your other comments/replys.
      I did happen to find what u said to be a lil funny…..As long as spoken/sung by George C. Scott!!!
      How many farms are you betting on us keeping VJax??? 
      Have a  great night!  I’m about to as well!

    he is still a dick. still cant stand him. his ego the past 3 years has got the team going backwards and now he wants to play the game like his job is on the line(oh yeah it is) when he should have been working like this for years. i will always be a Chargers fan, but you dont get time back in this world. even if we do win the big one this year. it doesnt change his past failures. this year is the wake up call for him. once he feels he has success he is going to turn back into the same old AJ. he got lucky Manning didnt want to come to town. if u think about it if we did get manning then we wouldnt have had that draft and we would still be going in circles and most likely he would have got cut years ago. the Rivers trade is the only thing that has kept this thing a float. He still aint shit. i like the moves he made so far but its still to early to say that anybody forgives him. this aint what have u done for me lately, this is what have done for me my whole charger fan career lol. he is a nut case that knows talent but doesnt know when to pay the men. instead he tags them then lets them walk the next year after the player has another break out year. Since no one got tagged this year it looks like we may actually be able to keep our best players after this season. wow, lol. 

    • BoogaP

       Deep breath….deep breath….I have read some of your comments since this one and I understand the frustration. 
      Watch your mouth homey!!  :0) Richard works just fine. LOL!!  You have some very valid points.
      Thanks for commenting!!
      P.S. The franchise tag is only going to become that much more of a joke than it already is presently…. Used to be used to keep the BEST guy on the team while being unable to sign him long-term…. Now it is just a way to save cap-space!! 

      • 619chargers4life

         @BoogaP lol ur right,my bad, i mean Richard. lol
