Morning Dump (Don’t Open If You Are Tired Of LA Talk)

At this point in time, it’s safe to assume that one NFL team will move the Los Angeles in the next few years — it’s just a matter of which team, and when. As reported by Sam Farmer of the Los Angeles Times, the Los Angeles City Council voted 12-0 on Wednesday to approve the framework for a privately-funded downtown football stadium in conjunction with the AEG corporation. Progress on that funding is now contingent on an NFL team moving to Los Angeles. And it will be an NFL team moving to L.A. — the league is not going to expand and provide a new team for that market.

Quentin Jammer thought for a moment about going to the receiver’s back shoulder, taking his usual route to simply break up the pass. It’s what he does best, about as well as anyone over the past several years.

Odim spoke with Eyewitness Sports on Tuesday afternoon in between team meetings and afternoon practice. Two weeks into training camp, Odim says the biggest difference between Division II football and the professional level is not so much the speed, but every player is very good at what they do. At this point, the top guys are getting most of the reps, but he is taking advantage of every minute.

There was a mourning period following the running back’s departure for New Orleans after five years with the Chargers. Players publicly lamented the loss of their resident spark plug.

It was a long, twisting road that led Ed McGuire from the ball fields of Riverhead High School to a high position as a National Football League executive. That really should not come as a surprise, though. As McGuire pointed out, there really is no blueprint for the career path he has taken.

The Chargers crowd at Qualcomm Stadium jeered at San Diego resident Jason Ensign at a game nearly two years ago because he was wearing a Kansas City Chiefs jersey and rooting against the home team.

Los Angeles specializes in eccentric owners, everyone from Georgia to Donald to Jim & Jerry and now the McCourts, so the Goofs ought to blend right in anyway.
