    Brinkley is shifty and good

    Brown kinda reminds me of when LT was about to hit the RB wall.

    O-line is the problem.

    Rosario is a good TE--It might be time to cut ties with Gates.

    Defense is jelling and getting better as unit.

    White uniforms is cool.

    Jr Seau .....:cry:

    Sorry but the "cut ties with Gates" statement means you have no credibility. Unless you were kidding.

    McMichael had a couple TDs when Gates was out a couple years ago, too. Doesn't mean we should've cut Gates for him.

    Gates has been injured a LOT the past few years. It is better to have consistency than have him in and out every few weeks.

    No credibility? I could say a statement like yours means you have no credibility either, since you completely discredit all of someone's opinions based on one.

    I don't think we need to actively cut ties with Gates. Even if we magically stole Vernon Davis and Rob Gronkowski from their current teams for free what would be the benefit of cutting Gates?

    That being said, I probably wouldn't be quite as concerned now if he were to go down with the way Rosario performed and the fact that I think Green is going to be good.

    Regardless of how good the other TEs are on the roster, what do we gain by cutting Gates?

    And don't say a roster spot because Rosario can get injured too.

    Rosario, the journeyman tight end whose previous career highlight was a game-winner for the Panthers in San Diego in 2008, had three touchdowns.

    He had combined for five in his career prior to today.

    Yeah, lets cut a HOF tight end with 76 career TDs for a guy with the incredible TD production of a 8 TDs. :D

    OK, so how much does it cost to buy me some credibility fo' Farg sake ?

    And whoever is responsible for taking away Ricky O' Shay's crack pipe and stash....................please return it ASAP as he and Harold would like to continue their hallucination session together.

    Cut ties with Gates, because Rosario has a 3 TD perfromance ?

    Can't we just cut Katie for missing the 3 FG's against the Jets in the playoffs?

    If we could cut Katie I would be happy to keep Gates! :D

    So you're saying boltssbbound has no credibility either, & you completely discredit all of his opinions based on one.

    Sounds like a non-hypocritical approach to me. :D

    I was sure that comment was in OP being sarcastic, if he was being serious all I can is WOW. Oh and I disagree. I'm not even going to begin to discuss why letting go of Gates is completely preposterous.

    I like all our TEs, I'm happy to go forward with all 4 of em.

    Fouts is a HOF maybe we should keep him active. While we are at it lets keep LT, JR, lets sign Rice, Singletary,etc because of what they did in THE PAST!!!!!! you might be worse than a woman when it comes to letting go of THE PAST!!!!

    If you think Gates is anywhere near done as a player, then you are either blind, or delusional. Rosario has scored a total of 8 TDs in what is now his 6th season as a player. Gates had 7 TDs last year, despite playing only 13 games. In 2010, he only played 10 games with the foot injury, but still scored 10 TDs.

    Letting go of the past....... that's a laugh. Your the kind of knee jerk fan who wants to get rid of one of our best players for a guy who has one big game. It's that kind of flawed logic that made AJ sign Tucker to a long term deal based on one 3 sack performance against the Raiders. Where's Tucker now?

    Someone that suggests the Chargers should cut ties with a HOF player because a journeyman backup had one good game should not have his opinions on football (or much else) taken seriously. I mean, how many scrubs receivers has Rivers made look like pro bowlers over the years when the starters were injured? Too many to mention. I'm not saying Rosario is a scrub, but he's a complimentary player. He's not the future at TE. And Gates is far from washed up.

    You are doubling on your idiotic statements. Fouts, Singletary and Rice are in their 50's. LT is retired and JR is dead. None of them are comparable to Gates. Even on one foot Gates was the best TE we've had since Kellen Winslow. Now that his feet are healthy, there is no reason to think that he can't regain his HOF form.

    I guess everyone is an agreement that the Chargers don't have anybody but River and Gates. If you ask people outside the city of SD they will all tell you the same thing,"All you have is Rivers and Gates"

    It's true; I have to set aside reality to continue believing this team is going to make it past the AFC Championship Game one of these years. But I keep smoking that pipe -- it's the one delusion I allow myself since I no longer believe in God or Santa Claus.

    I don't believe cutting ties with Gates is going to make us a better team, but I'm not convinced the Gates-Rivers connection continues to be as important as some make it out to be. If that's all we've got (and I don't believe it is), then we don't have a particularly well-rounded team.

    I'm not expecting many others to recognize the irony, but I'm satisfied that at least one has.
