that Jean-Francois guy is still available
Are the videos on chargers.com working for anybody?...
Specifically the Martin one and the English presser?.
naw dude aint workin for me
now let take jennings at 224
another LSU WR
dood!! he was just in a car wreck - i heard he was gonna be OK tho - he's good kid, very talented too - let's hope he gets healthy!
WR - Byrd, Demetrius
good scouting report
last and very much least :icon_tease: WR demetrius byrd
For some reason this was boring draft compared to the last few.
For the Chargers or in general?.
I thought the 1st round was gr8 craic.
C'mere anyone know why these freakin videos ain't working at chargers.com?.....
i cant even get to chargers.com right now... saying "access denied" :icon_eek:
It just wasn't a deep draft.
My man, go to NFL videos for the pressers
It was more of a fan drama then an actual drama, everyone runs around like the sky is falling
After checking out our 7th round choice Byrd, it seems that AJ thought we didn't have enough dreads on the team.
8th fastest WR at the combine, not too shabby
Jennings the RB is still there, as is Cadogan the OT from Penn St.
Might we nab em as free agents as soon as the draft has ended?.
only 3 mins but better than nada from chargers.com
if we're really lucky, still a good few teams left to pick....
and also theres been a hell of a lot of RB's been taken before Jennings, maybe he just isnt that good??
this guy has been forgotten about, no?.......
we'll know in 10 picks time!
Yeah, this kid was a mid-rounder who slipped because of a car accident he was in a few weeks ago. Sounds like he wasn't too seriously injured though. Good value in the 7th.
your OT is still there tho
Thank you and goodnight!:flag:
Sounds like y'all are happy with the Draft.
Quick synopsis on D Byrd.
Dude is fast! He's also talented as hell.
Potential to be a game breaker.
But he also could be a attitude problem sometimes.
in '07 we only got to see flashes of his potential (mainly because we were really deep at WR).
in '08, his attitude got in the way sometimes. Our QBs really struggled last year, so he wasn't getting a lot of balls he could do anything with. But then he started dropping balls that should have been caught. It may have all just been a snowballing of a terrible season in the bayou.
We expected a lot out of this kid last year (rumors of him being a 1st rounder in the pre-season). But with no decent QB, his performance really dropped.
Seems to have a decent head on his shoulders. Was kind-of a goof off in high school, so his grades weren't exactly great. Having to go the JUCO route apparently woke him up a bit. Dude busted his *** to become eligible for D1 ball. By all accounts, he's a hard worker in practice as well.
This pick could go either way. Getting him in the 7th is probably pretty good value. If his attitude doesn't get in the way, y'all got a steal. If he never "gets it", not a huge loss.
As far as his accident last week, details are still pretty sketchy.
Some were reporting he was "stable" and in intensive care.
His mom, coach , and agent all said it was just scrapes and bruises.
One paper said they confirmed he was in ICU, another said no hospital in the Miami are had any patients by his name.
So who the hell knows what is status is as far as this is concerned.
Reports I read had him in Good condition now and expected to fully recover. I guess his tire blew-out on the way to church and he hit a telephone/light pole. Had head and shoulder injuries but is doing just fine, up and around and walking.
He was initially in ICU in Critical condition right after the accident tho. I hope he comes out alright :yes:
Thanks for the insight I read about the attitude thing too this avo, good thing is he said he knew he had to grow up and be better. That he got frustrated last year b/c the QBs couldnt get him the ball. We shall see if he's really learned his lesson soon enough...
In AJ I trust.
I'm happy to see all these guys being described as "nasty" in some form or another. Puts a smile on my face.
