Today will be a sad day in Charger nation with one of the best offensive lineman hanging up the pads and cleats. The Chargers started a twitter tag #ThxKris so that fans could share their appreciation for Kris. First I will list a few of the players thoughts and then follow it up with some of the fans thoughts:

Gonna miss my friend and teammate kris dielman. Good luck brother to you and your family.
