Goin’ Off the Rails on a Crazy Train!!!!


So, Tom Telesco just dropped a HUGE Ping Pong Piddly of the Nuclear Sub BOMB on our Charger asses!!!!If you are Mike Mayock… you are not as surprised.

DJ Fluker will now replace Philip Rivers right side, instead of overpaid, roller skates, “what’s going on here” Jeromey Clary.FINALLY he’s gone!!!!

It wasn’t a popular pick, AT ALL… hahaha… … dead last in our BB poll, actually. Lot’s of “UGH’s”, “WHY’s”, and “I’m going to vomit’s”.

As expected, the elite tackles, and guards were all off of the board, before Fluker even strolled up. I was in the defensive mind-set… but, let’s be honest. This O-Line was atrocious last year, and a lot of it had to do with Clary… 49 sacks people. 49 sack!!! With all of the pressure for TT to fix this o-line… I can’t believe we all resisted this. Obviously, fixing this o-line, and drafting the best o-line player.. right side or left… seems to be TT’s prime directive. There are still 6 picks on the board.

So, Sergio Q commented… “chargers better not put a poll on chargers.com, doubtful they would get anything more than D”

I don’t give a crud… let’s poll it!!!!

So, without any further adieu… Place your vote….  Is Philip Rivers happy about this Pick?

Naw… just messin witcha….

Is DJ Fluker a sensible pick?

    Kind of a reach but at least Clary is gone. The question now is will Armstead be gone(Long and Pugh r gone already) and do we reach for Quisenberry, too?

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      Seems about right

    • Julien Bélair

      he is a reach because you didn’t have him on your mock draft. BUt if you look at the board and the way o-linemans went off the board last night. Fluker becomes BPA and position of need. And to people who says that he can’t block speed pass rusher, go see the game vs LSU where kk mingo(#6 overall) got suffed all game long by Fluker

    how can you folks not realize how much of a gay ballerina athlete clary was? the right side of the line bled and no sanitary napkin could have contained that bleeding

    • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

      I think they do… look at the poll… and billions of comments since the day he was picked up.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/James-P-Derrick/1654577989 James P Derrick

        yeah I saw that also on Facebook on the Chargers post for getting Fluker a lot of fans and they were disappointed but we needed him

        • http://www.signonsandiego.com/ Ambitoos

          We needed him because AJ wouldn’t replace him. Everything AJ and Norv did was for the passing game. AJ was in over his head at GM.

          • boltingindiego

            well they didn’t do everything for the passing game because the o-line is the biggest key because if your qb’s on the ground or running for life he’s not completing passes. he never put any depth on the o-line and gave rivers a quality rt.

    • RussinSactown

      I think you insulted gay ballerinas by comparing them to Clary. Ole!

        HA!

        every time I would see him surrender on a block on all I could think of is that he was wearing a ballerina outfit…… extremely soft……

  • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

    I can see Rivers whispering in TT’s ear over the last two months..

    “Tom. Get him OUT of here… Clary is going to get me killed…. ssshhh, sshhhh… here he comes… act cool…. Hi Jeromey = )”.

    Or, something pretty close to that.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/James-P-Derrick/1654577989 James P Derrick

      Rivers said to Clary spell “me” so Clary Spells It, m-e-D…. River says no there’s no D in the word me and Clary says yeah, but I play like there’s a D In me…
      Here’s from UT…D.J. is a guy that, day in and day out, will go get it,” Fluker said. “He’s a guy that you’ll go to war with for 60 minutes … (and) a guy also that’s a leader of his offensive line. Me personally, I want to be the Ray Lewis of my offensive line and my team. I’m a guy who’s going to lead my team to victory and be the high-energy guy. Being on the field is my playground. I enjoy it.”

        Ain’t that the truth. We still have some cap space.

      So good!!!

  • blu3ny3llow

    Nah man a lot if y’all got it wrong….y’all would be happy with warmack or cooper…..right????….what if he 3 time better at guard and/or RT

    • http://www.signonsandiego.com/ Ambitoos

      ??????????????????

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      If people would have been happy with Warmack or Cooper, than they should be fine with Fluker

  • Rob Base

    I’m undecided on this pick seemed like a reach. Guess we will se what happens. Telesco thinks he’s a great fit. No more Clary hopefully!

    • http://www.signonsandiego.com/ Ambitoos

      This is just the first step in rebuilding our O line. This should have been done by AJ three years ago. Clary has always been below average. I think it’s a great pick with the players that were available. We still may be able to pick someone up in the second round to cover the left tackle position.

    • boltingindiego

      with all the reaching by other teams in the 1st round on o-line he couldn’t risk it and maybe they had no trade partners also.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jason.collett.96 Jason Collett

    wonder if we can get manti or cyprien tomorrow?

    • http://www.signonsandiego.com/ Ambitoos

      Filling those positions is not our priority.

      • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

        Who is our middle backer tho?

        • http://www.signonsandiego.com/ Ambitoos

          Donald Butler can play the position but they can pick up a linebacker easyer that a left and right tackle. They have to find a way to protect Rivers because we don’t have a backup QB that can throw straight.

          • boltingindiego

            we have 3-4 d so we need 2 middle lb’s. if we cut clary and sign a vet fa lt then we don’t need a lt.

          • http://www.signonsandiego.com/ Ambitoos

            Chargers Sign LB DJ Smith

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      I wouldn’t mind that at all… But doubt it

      • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

        Hopefully he doesn’t get picked too early in the second, because I want more Hawaii beach scenes!!! Seriously though…did you catch his “Faith Family Football” line? I was like…HEY, THAT’S ERNIE’S!!!” Priceless!

    • boltingindiego

      i wouldn’t mind teo being their or if were able to get nt jenkins or williams because our lack of depth at nt.

    • Julien Bélair

      i think they are looking at armstead or watson
      tep two OTs in the first two rounds

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/James-P-Derrick/1654577989 James P Derrick

    Reach? Hell Clary never even reached….Every time he gave up on his blocks, the only thing reached was a higher sack count for Rivers…. For those that haven’t read the Fluker exclusive…

    My fingers are crossed this kid walks the talk….Make it nasty and wear out the opponents DJ!!! Welcome to SD! Go Chargers!!

  • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

    So, does this mean Clary is cut? I sould post that poll too… hahahaha!

    • http://www.signonsandiego.com/ Ambitoos

      He’ll probably be the backup.

      • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

        It depends… what if they draft an LT right now.. or sign a FA left tackle. What happens between Clary & Harris as backup RT? TT wants youth, and Harris at least stood up straight while he got his ass handed to him, after being thrown to the wolves.

        • http://www.signonsandiego.com/ Ambitoos

          You have a point.

        • boltingindiego

          cut clary have harris back up rt.

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      Wondering if he Willie to guard right now. May post something about it tomorrow

      • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

        He’s almost too expensive to let go. I always thought he could play guard. People said I was crazy talkin.. what now?

    • RussinSactown

      Troutman was injured last year. He could be awesome at guard.

    • nativesandiegan

      Troutman deserves a fair chance, and Rinehart can be solid. With Hardwick at C, can sign Starks (or McKinney) for LT this year and draft Quessenberry in 3rd as future LT; can also play G & C. We’ll probably not get a better shot for franchise LT as we had this year; will be drafting in our normal 16-25 range. IMO should get future LT asap so we can develop him starting now. I believe we should either use our 2nd round pick on defense or preferably trade down for two 3rd rounders; or a 3 & 4. Then we can get cb, rb, & Quessenberry.

    • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

      Because when all is said and done… we are Chargers fans, and we are 100% behind change. And Clary being gone is a step in the right direction. Maybe they do have McKinnie locked up. Winston is out of the picture though.. lol.

    • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

      Who is better? Winston or Fluker.. =]

      • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

        or least expensive?

      • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

        Good call

      • http://www.signonsandiego.com/ Ambitoos

        If the Chargers trade up in the second round, they could get them both.

        • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

          Winston is a FA.. I think you mean Warford, right? Who I am also good if they took him.

  • RussinSactown

    If you don’t think this was a good pick, tell me who on the roster now is a quality NFL “Starting” tackle.

    Choo-Choo!!!!

  • Sergio Quintero

    Too nice a poll: A, B, C, D, F, Z(are we sure this 20 year old looking guy knows what he’s doing).

    We all can justify the pick because of the massive need, but to not even try to trade down dissapoints me, part of drafting has to be to have feeling when you probably rate a player higher than most everybody, that you can drop and still get the guy you want. At worst you drop and you still get a solid guy like Pugh.

    I would have preferred to drop about 6-8 spots and probably still get Fluker or at worst Pugh and you still get an extra pick, Fluker was the best Olineman left, but I have very hard time thinking he was the 11th best player, if they were drafting BPA Star Lotuleilei & Vaccaro were consensus higher rated players.

    • Sergio Quintero

      P.S. I would have voted a D, probably deserves a C because it does cover need, but still too mad to even give it a C.

      • boltingindiego

        maybe no one tried to trade up because their weren’t any trades until the boys and niners.

        • Sergio Quintero

          They took less than 3 minutes to draft the guy, at least use 9 minutes to wait for the phone to ring.

          • http://www.signonsandiego.com/ Ambitoos

            The Chargers got a great pick, sorry your so unhappy.

    • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

      Here’s me, thinking I was overindulging by putting ‘undecided’ in there. “How to screw up a poll, in two seconds” by Peter Thompson… sheesh.

      • Sergio Quintero

        Not trying to be mean, just trying to set a poll to see how pissed some people are.
        My personal favorite for Z type score is the Walter Football special: “Millen on LSD laced Kielbasa score”, absolutely awesome way to say it.

        • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

          I would vote in that poll.

    • Julien Bélair

      to me fluker is better than vaccaro. remember RT now blocks good pass rusher ( like Von Miller). You need an elite RT in this NFL

    • RussinSactown

      Could we have dropped back and still got him the way linemen flew off the board last night? I doubt it. We need tackles plural. Clary was a swinging door. Maybe we get an LT today or tomorrow. Maybe we rent one for the year. If we cut Clary we’ll have a couple million to throw at it. The draft isn’t over and last night wasn’t an AJ “good character” pick. The line got meaner

  • http://www.facebook.com/lostkiara Stefanie Smith

    Sergio wanted to trade back..I thought they should trade up. Doesn’t mean they didn’t try to do both of these during Round 1. Personally, I think this pick was fine. It sends a signal to Rivers and tells me that at least TT is seriously looking at the O line problem.

    With trading up, I think the draft analysts said it wouldn’t cost much. I believed that until I saw what SF gave to Minnesota? to move up… something like 4 picks in various rounds. (Not sure if they traded with Minnesota). So, in the end, I think it was way different than we imagined.

    • http://www.signonsandiego.com/ Ambitoos

      Trading up would have cost us some future picks and we need all that we can get. Fluker is a great pick. Look who he’ll be replacing.

      • http://www.facebook.com/lostkiara Stefanie Smith

        I like the pick and I like the guy’s attitude…plus, for me, it tells me that at least for now, TT is not bailing on Rivers and letting him hang out there.
        I really thought Johnson would have ruled the day for Rivers. It’s a philosophical difference, I guess. I think doing whatever it takes to keep Rivers’ standing is what we should do–if that means future picks, then do it. But I know this is radical thinking for most fans.
        I am satisfied at progress on fixing the O-line situation.

        • Julien Bélair

          i am looking forward to see him block von miller

      • http://www.facebook.com/lostkiara Stefanie Smith

        We can’t avoid fixing a problem because we think it costs too much. Eventually,the costs to remedy the situation will be even larger as the problem grows worse.

        • http://www.signonsandiego.com/ Ambitoos

          Man, was I wrong. That must be hey won’t hire me.

    • Sergio Quintero

      I preferred to actually trade up, but once all the LT’s & OG were gone, time to parachute down, because I didn’t see team interested Fluker until the cowboys at 18. And yes Star & Vacarro are better players, in positions of lesser need.
      My value on Fluker was closer to pick 20, out of personal preference I don’t like drafting RT, if I’m going to draft an Olineman he better be able to pass block, its a pass driven league.

  • http://www.facebook.com/lostkiara Stefanie Smith

    I remember in weeks before the draft when people were talking on this board that Fisher and for sure Lane Johnson would be there at 11.

    They are arguing whether Fluker was the BPA at 11. Lots of people think we should have taken Star. But that is the same group that thinks that we should have traded back (how and with whom, and what would we get, and where would we be???) because they think Fluker would have fallen further down. I have no idea.
