    We could make a run, no doubting that. I just can't shake this feeling that it's coaching. Bad play call's lose games also, Lt was visibly upset, that's straight up coaching.

    We have talent, I don't see that as a problem. I also know we're hurting on the O & D lines, why don't they tweak the game plan to match the player's abilities?

    There were some nice free agent lineman out there these past couple of years, and they were on both sides of the ball. Our defense goes as Jamal goes, if he has a great game, the Chargers have a great game. If he doesn’t, we don’t win. Our running game is in shambles, and we still have not scored an offensive touchdown on our first possession to start a game now in what 24 straight games.

    The last #1 draft choice spent on an Offensive lineman by the Chargers was back in 1994 and he was Issac Davis, and on the defensive side of the ball was Chris Mims in 1992. In 1994 our #2 was Vaughn Parker, and as luck would have it, we went to the Super Bowl that year.


    We don’t spend high draft choices on lineman, and we do not bring in high caliber free agent lineman, and we can’t score touchdowns, nor can we get a pass rush or stop the run.


    There must be a correlation there somewhere.



    And your right about the coaching, just a couple of years ago we had 8 players qualify for the Pro Bowl, where are they now?

    They didn't seem to have a problem building a line without using top draft pick on them earlier this decade.

    I agree that the line is the most important part of the roster but that doesn't mean it can't be built without using the top draft pick.

    That's not to say I'm against using the first round pick on it, I just don't really draw the line from "we haven't used a top draft pick since '94" to "this is why our line sucks".

    Luis Castillo was drafted in the first round.

    How about this? I am one of the few that didn't want Marty gone at ALL COST. Especially in mid April! That was retarded!!!

    Then I knew that Norv was a step in the wrong direction. Most here felt he was better than Marty. I disagree for this simple reason... IF NORV CAN GET US TO THE AFCC, THEN ANY AVERAGE COACH CAN GET US FARTHER!!! :yes:

    PROBLEM: NORV IS BELOW AVERAGE!!!

    Thanks Chuck!

    Most posters in here made up their own trophies for the 3 playoff wins and could care less if we ever get a Super Bowl title. But there are those of us that live in the real world and realize that 3 playoff wins are nothing more than just that.

    We'll win a Super Bowl next season with a different coach and all the Norvys in here are going to argue with me saying "bu bu bu but Norv's 3 playoff victories." :yes:

    Exactly what I have been saying for 2 seasons now....My opinion is Norv doesn't know how to adjust. Someone on our team needs to think outside the box. :yes:

    so if we do not use our #1 draft choice on a stud lineman, and we still continue to not bring in free agents that are worth anything. And if we continue to not be able to stop the run, nor can we run it.

    How do you intend to build it?

    I'm still not bowing to you because I was on Marty's side until the day he was fired.

    Do a search, both here and at the UT, if you don't believe me.

    As I said, I'm not against using top picks and free agency signings on it, I'm just saying it can obviously be done because it was done in the earlier part of this decade.

    McNeil - 2nd round
    Goff - Free Agency
    Hardwick - 3rd round
    Dielman - UFA
    Clary - 7th round (I beileve)

    Castillo - 1st round
    Jamal - Supplemental draft
    Igor - 2nd round

    So, I guess your argument is somewhat vindicated because there's a 1st rounder and a free agent in that bunch.

    Yep. Most of us were... until we realized the old kraut orchestrated his firing so he could get paid and make AJ look like the dikhead in the whole thing.

    But B4L will just keep putting everyone into the same category of "Norv Lover" if they don't want to back his lunatic rants 100%.

    He likes to think he was right all along... when we all know the truth. He knows the truth too, but he's in denial. The truth is... he was right at first... then he was wrong... and now he wants to be right again.

    This is why I'd love nothing more than to see this team, with Norv at the helm, defy all logic... and win a Superbowl. Not only would I have to eat crow... but I'd at least have the luxury of eating that crow while watching B4L's head explode on some Youtube video. :lol:

    EVERYBODY who posts in here knows the reason. If there were any doubts, now it's spelled out.

    I also know the answer I'm going to get. A certain Mod will tell me about name calling and/or insults as that Mod CAN'T tell me about it without calling me names and throwing insults my way.

    Call it what you will (as whining, cry baby, etc. are your favorite words), but ALL it is is cold, hard, facts! :yes:

    Read the post listed above.

    I would also suggest some anger management. A forum poster should not have that much control over your life.

    Considering the size of this thread and that mutiple threads have been merged into one - I think it's unreasonable to expect every single post you deem inappropriate will make it into the Flame War section.

    That said - your MULTIPLE requests from this afternoon will be reviewed and handled appropriately.

    Sell that to somebody who just started posting in here. The reason is known. It's not a new thing either.

    Alan - you push buttons on purpose specifically to get a rise from people - it's been going on for YEARS. You are not innocent of questionable behavior either and as you well know the only reason you're still here and able to participate in this forum is because of the many many exceptions made by the very people you are complaining about.

    So please, spare me if I don't buy the "oh poor me" act. Your reported posts are being reviewed and will be handled as always by committee. Not all the mods are here right now - so take a chill pill and stay tuned.

    I don't claim to be innocent and what I am talking about has is NOT about me.

    It all just comes down to that I don't believe the reason you stated is the real reason. Not saying you are personally responsible. It's been that way before you joined. It's just the way it is.

    With that said... keep up the good work!
