If you didn’t read a bolt ton of articles on Dr David Chao yesterday, you will see the dump is filled with Chao today. What an appropriate place for Dr Chao to be… In the dump.

It’s FRIDAY!!! My excitement is for you guys! I get the next week and a half off! I don’t know if I will ever get to sleep again though! If some of my posts start making completely no sense, blame it on sleep deprivation. If they are more awesome than normal, sleep deprivation.

Oh yea, that photo for the dump this morning is for you Pete Spinning and tubbs45.

SAN DIEGO — The NFL Players Association wants the San Diego Chargers to replace team doctor David Chao, who lost a malpractice lawsuit last summer and is facing an attempt to have his medical license suspended or revoked.

“There is a team doctor named Dr. Chao who is currently the San Diego team doctor who has been found liable of medical malpractice twice — twice,” said NFLPA Executive Director DeMaurice Smith at a news conference Thursday. “The same doctor was the subject of a DEA investigation. He’s still the San Diego Chargers team doctor.”

NEW ORLEANS — The association that represents NFL players on Thursday released a survey showing wide dissatisfaction with medical care in the league, and singled out San Diego Chargers doctor David Chao as a problem.

The NFLPA has demonstrated its general mistrust of team doctors.

Now they have a specific target.

The San Diego Chargers have hired Joe D’Alessandris to coach the offensive line. D’Alessandris spent the last few years with the Buffalo Bills running the zone-blocking scheme and it’s only reasonable to assume he’ll try installing the scheme in San Diego.

Why? Well, D’Alessandris ran a zone-blocking scheme with the Buffalo Bills after running it for years at Georgia Tech. Considering that neither of D’Alessandris’ bosses have any experience with coaching the offensive line, I can’t imagine that he was brought to San Diego to learn how to run the power-blocking system that the team used under Hal Hunter and Norv Turner.

“No matter who you are, there is always somebody who gave you the break you needed,” he said. “For me, whoever would have thought it would be some long haired guy from Annapolis, Maryland playing for some small school in Connecticut would be my key to the NFL. ; I wouldn’t be here without Bill Belichick. He truly is the guy who got me here and taught me how to be an NFL coach.”
