NFL.com never fails to to give me something to write about! They have been beating on this Chargers team all offseason, but this time one of their analysts selected us to be at the basement of the LEAGUE!
I can listen to the argument of putting the Chargers in the basement of the AFC West, but the very bottom of the NFL? Here is what former SDSU Aztec, Akbar Gbaja-Biamila, said on NFL.com:
If the Colts can get rid of Peyton Manning, the Chargers can get rid of Philip Rivers. Remember, it wasn’t that long ago that Rivers was drafted to replace Drew Brees.
The first half of the season will be challenging without wide receiver Vincent Brown, who broke his ankle and is hoping to return after Week 8. Running back Ryan Matthews could miss some time, too. The AFC West is a more competitive conference than in prior years, and San Diego is on a sharp decline with no major roster upgrades from last season. Consider the Chargers on the clock. – Akbar
I won’t even lie, I would love to have Matt Barkley, BUT he won’t be an option when we select in the draft. Thanks AGB for the laugh. If we had the number 1 pick in the draft, could we even trust AJ to take Matt Barkley?
