There is no way that we can put our trust in Larry English. We have tried this before and it already bit us right in the butt. When has Larry ever lived up to our expectations? Even when we drop those expectations, he still doesn’t meet them. I have high expectations again for Larry, but I wouldn’t want to trust him to be my top starter without a backup plan.
Once Larry gets injured, who do we put in to replace him. Would we then have Tourek Williams as the starter once English goes down?
There is no depth on the roster at outside linebacker. There was a lot of trust in Melvin Ingram and Jarrett Johnson to for most of the season. Now that Melvin is likely gone for the season, the team needs to find someone to takeover Melvin’s role.
Dwight Freeney is the most logical option for the Chargers. We have to find a way to make things work financially, otherwise we will have to use Larry as the starter and sign some other vet for depth on the roster. That sounds like a scary, scary choice.
Get me Freeney or just shoot me in the frickin foot and let’s start this race!
