Morning Dump: San Diego Chargers News Around the Web

Owners meetings are happening this week in Arizona. Teams will decide on new rules for the league and probably take away some of the things that we love about the sport, but we still will end up loving it anyway. One of the rules on the table is the infamous “tuck rule.” Expect to hear a lot of Raiders fans quanging about that lost to the Patriots and how they would have won the Super Bowl if it weren’t for that.

The weekend was boring for the Chargers football front. Let’s see if we can build up more excitement again this week with some signings. Looking for that offensive tackle! Someone else mentioned it here in the comments section also, but I almost want to set my eyes on Sebastian Vollmer now for tackle. Why not go big? Why go for Winston when we can have Vollmer? Not as likely as Winston, but we can hope.

Chargers, NFL descend on Arizona

Under a cloudless blue night, around cacti and palm trees and finely-cut grass near colorful orchards that, together, belong on the pages of some gardening magazine, the NFL has arrived. About noon Sunday, the Chargers‘ team plane touched down in

THE BEST: 4. Antonio Cromartie, CB. Smith took a huge chance with the No. 19 overall pick of the 2006 draft, given that Cromartie had missed the last year of his career at Florida State with a blown-out ACL and not taken part in the NFL Combine. No

    Hoping we sign max Starks or some ther tackle today

    I wonder if Bolts will get a comp pick?

    • Ernie Padaon

      probably not

    I was settling down then read reactions to the Charger off-season. Not sure what I think but still hoping for the best.

    Opinion 1: “My synopsis: so far Telesco’s answer to the team’s offensive line problems has been to create an additional problem by allowing one of the two only decent lineman (Vasquez) on the team to leave via free agency. Now, instead of three holes to fill they have four. Telesco has also unnecessarily created holes in the secondary, by getting rid of three adequate starters and replacing them with one average guy (Cox) who gets hurt all of the time.”

    Opinion 2: Here is another observation: “The Chargers, with needs and cap space, have spent the week shopping on the 99 cent aisle in the NFL Free Agent Store.”

      ha…. love it. aint even done yet. we still got plenty of work to do for sure.

      • Stefanie Smith

        I don’t agree about the FA acquisitions. We don’t have to run out and pay what Miami paid to Mike Wallace to get that caliber of player.

        And this is just my opinion, I think this Woodhead is going to surprise people. Going to make more of an impact than we expect (and be a lot more durable than Matthews).

        • Ernie Padaon

          yea… miami been wasting money on some of those players… ellerbe was overpaid also

    • Supercharger77

      The 99 cent comment can be seen and heard from hacksaw who doesn’t know anything about football. Its not about the big name. Does the player fit the scheme is what teams are asking. Those big names may sell a few more tickets but does it show on the field is the real question. Ask Philly. Lol

    What’s up with the “One Man’s Opinion” author, and article? He seriously looks like a washed up Rip Taylor with that awful creature that died on his upper lip, and the dutchboy haircut!!! LMAO!
    Not to mention he says “Cason is next to vacate the roster”. He was already cut, and signed with AZ on Friday, moron! His article was dated today. He almost acted like cutting one of the league’s worst CB’s was a horrible move.. lol. I am not super-thrilled with how things look right now, but he acts like we are on the same footing as the Raiders! I know things ain’t purty, and I’m not sugar-coating anything… but, we certainly aren’t as bad off as the Raiders. I guess they let anyone be a football columnist these days.
