Lying Season For The Chargers and the NFL


It is lying season in the NFL. All general managers and coaches are keeping their mouths shut and when they speak about players in the draft, you can’t believe a word that they say.

Kevin Acee helped prove that point with his tweet yesterday. Acee shared that AJ Smith was really impressed with Michael Floyd’s performance during his Pro Day. There is no reason that we should be looking at wide receiver that early in this draft. We just brought on Robert Meachem, Eddie Royal, Roscoe Parrish and had other guys on the roster. We all know that he was there taking a peak at Harrison Smith… or was he?!

This is the time in the season when we start over-analyzing  everything that the Chargers staff does. AJ Smith was at the Notre Dame Pro Day and we all think that he was there to see Harrison Smith. What if AJ really wants to draft Mark Barron out of Alabama and he was making an appearance out to Notre Dame to throw other teams off? If the Chargers don’t show interest in Barron, it could stop other teams from trying to trade ahead of the Bolts.

Top draft experts don’t know what to expect out of the Chargers. Some have us taking an offensive lineman and others have us taking a pass rusher. AJ loves it.

AJ loves the idea that he is unpredictable! As unpredictable as AJ wants to be, the Bolt faithful know that this draft has to be all about the DEFENSE. If we go any other route, we might line up at Charger Park ready to break the gates down!

Pass rush, safety and depth on the offensive line! If we go in any other direction, then AJ likes the idea that he is unpredictable too much.

    lol you tell me when its go time and we can all meet up at the gates to give him a piece of mind if he does some crazy offensive 1st round pick madness. every one knows his job is on the line.
    He shouldn’t  get to fancy unless he goes on a trading spree. and even then he better go D. i cant wait. and unlike last year, if Dean Spanos cuts me off at the fan fest again this year in his fancy benz, i got a tough Camaro. im not going to just wave an let him go bye. i might just stop him and petition him to Cut AJ. i shouldnt have to do that . AJ knows what he gots to do. he has done good so far this off season. we all know that u cant have the best of the best on our team for long before they feel the need that money out weighs the ring. Ive regained my faith in AJ so far(still dont like him)lol Please AJ dont get Fancy in the Draft. Keep this thing rolling and get that D you and i and all our Chargers Nation believes we need. 
    if he trucks the whole off season off with a bad draft, Dean and the whole city will never forgive him especially if there isnt a AFC championship in the mix.

       @619chargers4life can i push LIKE 3 times on this!!1 if you run into Dean on Fan Fest, then you should just spin him out… and we will all attack him like zombies!
       
      AJ has done alright so far and he can all put it to waste by going in the wrong direction in the draft.
