The San Diego Chargers Big Start To Free Agency

The San Diego Chargers jumped head first into free agency today. They seemed like they were just itching for the clock to strike 1 so that they could just snatch up all the talent. As soon as free agency struck 1, the Chargers got TE John Phillips signed. They may have misread the name on the paper and thought they were re-signing Shaun Phillips.

I had to look up John Phillips. Forgot he was the lead singer of Mamas and Papas. He sung CALIFORNIA DREAMING!

Also, right after we brought over John Philips, we claimed Fozzy Whittaker! FOZZY! WOCKA WOCKA WOCKA!

I am sure the kids are  going to love this signing. The Muppets may be pretty pissed that we took him away, but he is ours now. I didn’t even know Fozzy Bear’s last name, but it is good to know.

We are freaking set to jet right now! While other teams are picking up players like Andy Levitre and Louis Vasquez, we are rocking out with the top notch studs!

On the real:

John Phillips is a tight end from the Dallas Cowboys that is a blocking tight end. He is similar to Randy McMichael, but younger and probably cheaper.

Fozzy Whittaker is a transplant from the Arizona Cardinals and I am sure that Ken Whisenhunt had his input to bring over this way. The dude is 5-foot-10 and plays runningback. He is so awesome, he doesn’t even have a picture in the Cardinals website.

Get excited!

    • Ernie Padaon

      it looks like today is another day on the don side of our rollercoaster

      • Stefanie Smith

        Yep. I was so hopeful. When these clowns go home tonight and cannot point to how they made the Chargers better or improve… then we have problems.

      • Preston Niedert

        Erine what is happening here every team is making moves to get better. While the chragers are signing low level players. I hope the chargers sign RT Eric Winston That would make me feel better about oline and how bad it is right now.

        • Ernie Padaon

          Ha… Just was writing a post about this! Should be up in a bit… And Winston would make things so much better

          • Preston Niedert

            I’m think there are more moves on the way that might give the chargers hope cause today was bad one.

          • Ernie Padaon

            We probably should have expected a bad one today

    • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

      Fozz better be a practice squad dude and not Ryans backup buddy

      • Ernie Padaon

    • tubbs45

      Mulligan please!!!!

  • Rob Base

    Oh man your killing me!! Thanks for the good laugh I needed it!

  • Craig Hammond

    Love the sarcasm. Seriously, that’s how I feel right now.

  • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

    Oh good he has past torn his ACL and was injury prone….but when healthy he sounds good. Nice highlights at least.

    • Stefanie Smith

      he can share the cart with Gaither.

  • veazy

    That picture is fucking hilarious!

  • davacho

    i am laughing and crying at the same time!

  • RussinSactown

    Go Fozzy! Time to show them what #14598 can do!

  • Stefanie Smith

    This about says it all when it comes to Vasquez. I am quoting Acee.”
    “Denver Broncos give Louis Vasquez $13 mil guaranteed. Chargers were never serious players. Said they were, but they weren’t.”

  • Happee_Bumpee


  • Carlos Rivas

    Are they going Money Ball on us????

  • JoseSD

    Again everyone is ready to jump off the bridge, its been 3 hours. Based on the comments by Vasquez’s agent he wasn’t too happy he wasn’t extended earlier. Vasquez “im going to explore all options” is code for I won’t be back. Levitre was out of their price range. Looks like they’re trying to fill the depth with cheaper options Philips for McMichael, Dunlap to back up at tackle. The big name high priced guys are going fast, as things settle down let’s see what other moves they make, the draft is still 6 weeks away, looks like the plan of building through the draft is in effect

    • Stefanie Smith

      Dunlap is downright ridiculous. They do not value Rivers in the least. This is what they think of their franchise QB. They didn’t need to sign these guys today. Not like they were hot commodities .

      • JoseSD

        This is exactly what im talking about, this Guy isn’t gonna start but behind Gaither and Clary there’s only Mike Harris, you really think they are gonna pay 10+ for Jake long? Based on some of Acees tweets it looks like Vasquez didn’t want to come back anf the Titans threw money at Levitre that the chargers don’t have. Look at all the money they spent last year everyone was so excited, it didn’t yield results on the field or wins. Telesco already said he wasn’t gonna spend big on free agents. The draft is his main,plan and again its the first day of free agency we’ll see what the plan is

  • JoseSD

    Dolphins signed ellerbe and dumped Karlos Dansby, maybe they.could pick up Dansby to play next to Butler

    • Ernie Padaon

      that would be nice
