Are you tired of all the crazy trade talk?  I am.  I can’t wait until draft day gets behind us and we can move on from this.  It’s amazing how a few pieces of information have gotten blow up into this huge story.  So what, the Chargers are working out Mariota.  They have also met with Petty and are working out Hundley.  What does this tell us?  One, they are most likely going to draft a QB.  Two they are looking for a successor to Phillip Rivers, which is not surprising considering Philip’s age and the pounding he took last year.

As I see it, someone is going to have to do something stupid to make this happen.

BUT LETS NOT JUMP TO CONCLUSIONS!!!!  Just because we work out a QB and Phil is in a contract year does not me we will trade him.

But if it were going to happen I see three ways that it could happen and they all are flawed.
