Now, I'm not writing this season off just yet, basically cause I'm a homer. But a 4-6, with only 2 teams with a winning percentage above .500 right now we have left to play, looks like another 8-8 season to be honest with you guys. But we all know the Ravens absolutely suck on the west coast, so could we actually finish 9-7 and make the playoffs? That's hard to do, go 6-1.. But the Chargers have done it before. Either way, we would be playing the Patriots or Broncos. So if we did make it to the playoffs we'd most likely be one and done. But focusing on next year.. What will we do at the HC position? GM position? If we make the playoffs I see AJ here but Norv not (could be wrong). Honestly I like David Shaw. His team went on the road, against #2 ranked Oregon and an explosive offense and played hard, physical, smart football, won the game and held Orgeon to 14 points. And similar play between Shaw and Schiano's teams. Shaw has been around the NFL as well. He's under studied Harbaurgh. Shaw plays the 3-4, I'm pretty sure at Stanford. And quite honestly I'd like to see the 4-3 here in San Diego. I think we have the defensive front to do it, just not the linebackers to. Butler lacks that 4-3 speed and Spikes we all know is declining, but is here for a year. So if we do change formations on the defensive side, I'd like to see us bring in Daryl Smith or Justin Durant. But say there are no defensive formation changes, lets just focus on the team as is and see what we can do to improve. 1st thing is to improve the offensive line. Shocker. We've all seen how bad it is this year. Last year it was pretty bad, but this year its even worse. Which is leading to Rivers' ****** play. But some mistakes fall on PR as well, so I am not making an excuse for him. But improve in FA. 2nd thing is to improve the secondary. Cut ties with Jammer at Corner, and move him to Strong Safety on a 1 year contract. Cut ties with Cason as well, wave him good bye. We have to sign a corner in free agency, and draft a Corner in the first round of the draft. Re-sign: Danario Alexander, Antwan Barnes, Ronnie Brown, Aubrayo Franklin, Quentin Jammer, Vaughn Martin, Nick Novak, Louis Vasquez, and Mike Windt. Draft: 1. Xavier Rhodes (CB), 2. Eric Fisher (T/G), 3. Shayne Skov (ILB) 4. Montee Ball (RB) 5. Brandon Jenkins (OLB) 6. Caleb Sturgis (K) 7. Tyrann Mathieu (CB)* *If he already isn't taken. He will most likely enter the draft since he was just caught with weed again and LSU probably won't let him back on the football field. I think the talent outweighs the cost. A 7th round pick won't hurt us. Heck I'd spend a 6th rounder on him. I think once he gets to the NFL, with good coaching, he could be a solid nickel corner. Roster, QB: Rivers, CBJ RB: Mathews, Ball, Brown, Baker FB: McClain WR: Floyd, Brown, Alexander, Meachem, Royal TE: Gates, McMichael, Green LT: FA*, Gaither LG: Dombrowski, Troutman C: Hardwick, Molk RG: Vasquez, Fisher* RT: Harris, Clary *Fisher, if we can draft this kid int he 2nd it'll be special. So versatile, can play Guard and Tackle, and is quick. Something we need facing Miller & Dumervil twice a year. FA*That could be either Brandon Albert if he's not franchised or Jermon Bushrod; move Gaither to RT. Or Sign Vollmer at RT and keep Gaither and Harris at LT. RDE: Liuget, Reyes LDE: Martin, Reyes DT: Franklin, Garay, Thomas ROLB: Ingram, Barnes LOLB: Johnson, English, Jenkins MLB: Butler, Spikes, Mouton, Skov, Gahcker RCB: FA*, Gilchrist, Mathieu LCB: Wright, Rhodes SS: Jammer, Taylor FS: Weddle, Stuckey FA* Marcus Trufant, or Sam Shields, Mike Jenkins, and Cary Williams. P: Scifres K: Sturgis Young but experienced as well..
