NFL.com Analyst Selects Chargers As Worst NFL Team


NFL.com never fails to to give me something to write about! They have been beating on this Chargers team all offseason, but this time one of their analysts selected us to be at the basement of the LEAGUE!

I can listen to the argument of putting the Chargers in the basement of the AFC West, but the very bottom of the NFL? Here is what former SDSU Aztec, Akbar Gbaja-Biamila, said on NFL.com:

If the Colts can get rid of Peyton Manning, the Chargers can get rid of Philip Rivers. Remember, it wasn’t that long ago that Rivers was drafted to replace Drew Brees.

The first half of the season will be challenging without wide receiver Vincent Brown, who broke his ankle and is hoping to return after Week 8. Running back Ryan Matthews could miss some time, too. The AFC West is a more competitive conference than in prior years, and San Diego is on a sharp decline with no major roster upgrades from last season. Consider the Chargers on the clock. – Akbar

I won’t even lie, I would love to have Matt Barkley, BUT he won’t be an option when we select in the draft. Thanks AGB for the laugh. If we had the number 1 pick in the draft, could we even trust AJ to take Matt Barkley?

    So we’re worse than the Cardinals, Rams, Jags, Vikings, Colts, Browns, Dolphins…oh man the list goes on and on, this is the craziest thing that’s ever come out of an analyst’s mouth.

      He literally is just a hater……..

  • 619chargers4life

    Akbar Gbaja-Biamila he just a raider. born in LA played for the raiders now he mad cuz Chargers cut him after 06 season. OL the deepest draft class this coming year. i think we pull two OL out of our hats this coming draft.

    • H55dbleu

      Str8 up bro I think they should get oline first round a db second round then in the third pick another oline………..

    I am a Chiefs fan and even I think this is absolutely ridiculous.

    Let’s not forget that he played for the Chargers in 2006. A team that was great and he had absolutely nothing to do with it.
    What a moron.

      you are using the term ‘played’ loosely.. hahaha

      • H55dbleu

        Man yall really going in on that guy….lol…. Cold thing about it is he so irrelevant I dont even remember him……..

    This guy knows nothing. I’m glad you posted this so come January you can send it to him and say “mmm hmmm, how you like our Chargers now?!”

  • NoFear21

    What’s great about this is it shows his NFL IQ. Not much of a article unless you like comics.

  • Andrew

    If we had to pick first overall, we wouldn’t have to worry what AJ would do, cause I’d like to think him and Norv would be loooong gone by then.

    We need a left tackle and a safety to replace Bigby. That will probably be done by Tuesday at the latest. And that means we’re the worst? I don’t think so

  • RussinSactown

    If we have number 1 in the draft, AJ won’t be making that pick. And Norv may be chased out with pitchforks and torches.

      ^ This!

  • Charger Ed

    I’ve never liked anything that Ernie Padeon has posted before. I don’t know what his credentials are or what his education or experience is, or how he got this forum, but this one has convinced me that this guy is a complete moron and what he says is absolutely not credible from this point forward.

  • BMac

    Gabaja-Biamilla then shared his superbowl prediction. The Browns will meet the Skins and ultimately prevail behind superstar addition Pee Wee Herman. RG3 had a spectacular rookie campaign but lost the game and mvp honors to Pee Wee who went old school and played both offense and defense for Cleveland. Gabaja-Biamilla then proceeded to take off his pants, fashion a foil hat atop his head, and head out for his morning jog!

    Akbar does not know football. He’s worst then Charger fans. Just because
    Rivers didn’t play well in recent years u want to throw him under the
    bus? And besides check the tapes, how many of those pics Rivers threw really
    his fault? Arguably Rivers was actually 27 td and 14 int.
