    Off to work have a great day Bolt peeps.

    Someone needs remind Tom Krasovic that we are not the 49er farm club. Just because Crabtree tore his achilles doesn’t mean we need to give them one of our best weapons. Maybe trade them Meachem for a 3rd

    Happy Friday Bolt Nation… Just say NO to a Dx trade!

    I saw an article on Bleacher Report just now called “Buy or Sell”. Teams that will be better than their 2012 record, basically.. or something lame like that. The author sold the Chargers based on the fact they haven’t upgraded, or changed anything on offense. Is he huffing glue?!!!! I’m not so blindly convinced that our new offense will make us a lock for the playoffs.. but here is my viewpoint on it.

    cut Gaither & Haslam / got Starks & Dunlap (still have Harris) = upgrade
    cut Greene / got Reinhart & Ohrnberger = upgrade
    lost Vasquez / moved Clary = OK, downgrade. but maybe not? Don’t know
    moved Clary over / got Fluker = upgrade
    cut Battle, Brinkley / got Woodhead, Fozzy, Hill / Brown / Mathews = upgrade
    got V-Brown back / kept DX / drafted Allen = upgrade
    run blocking will improve = upgrade
    pass protection will probably improve = upgrade
    strenght & conditioning = should be an upgrade
    new o-line expert coach = upgrade
    new QB coach = upgrade
    new head coach = upgrade
    Most importantly… Norv is gone / play calling will improve with Whiz = upgrade

    He said in his article that nothing has changed on the Chargers offense, so they will be middle of the pack, at best. Middle of the pack? Maybe. But, there has been a BUTT-LOAD of change & upgrades.. so many changes in fact, that this dude must have written the article before the draft & FA!

    • davacho

      #5 is a massive upgrade

    • arnie

      Pete, when people write articles, I wonder do the even bother to do a little research? What would they mean by, “noting has changed”? If they mean they are called the San Diego Chargers, and Dean Spanos is still the owner, then I guess nothing has changed.

      • Peter Thompson

        Exactly. I have seen a few articles on there, where the majority of the comments are “What are you talking about, bro?”. They list our receivers as Michael Floyd, or Roger Goodman. I just think.. who the heck are Belacher Report letting write on that site? Don’t pick east coast Giants fans to write about the Chargers!
