    Today is the first day of next season.

    Today I am NOT going to repeat the past of pissing and moaning for 7 months as I impatiently await another TC opening.

    Today, I am asking all of you, My fellow Chargers Faithful, to get it all out of your system, flush out all the anger, the hate, the sadness, the frustration, and join me in this thread as we look FORWARD to the new season that is upon us.

    Same as before, keep the trash talking and the hate somewhere else. This thread is for positivity only.

    GO CHARGERS!!!

    I agree on Merriman and Cromartie but I wouldn't get rid of Jackson.
    Do you really think somebody will give up a first rounder for Merriman?

    i like him as a player, but that was a dick move.

    in lieu of the events this season, i've learned a lot about this team. don't count them out, but don't count them in either. life certainly does move on but hey, **** it, what can you do? i see ourselves in a position for a championship very soon. :bolt:

    I think Jackson will get his contract. When depends on the resolution of his DUI case.

    Cromartie...DONE. I've got two of his jersies hanging in my closet. Dumb move by me. Ship him out. Cut him loose. Had one incredible year and done.

    Merriman? I'm torn about this. While I don't think I've heard him or anyone from the Chargers say he was 100% healthy, I don't think he's worth the long term fat contract that elite LB's get. We've all seen what he can do when 100% healthy. Maybe tag him and sign the others? But I'm not an expert on how money & contracts work in the NFL.:icon_shrug:

    I am a CHARGERS fan first and foremost. The Dodgers have absolutely NOTHING to do with this discussion, though you've been proven to be lost in the wrong thread already and are obviously grasping at straws.

    I'm not telling you to leave the forum, just keep your trash outta THIS THREAD.

    Dude... absolutely sick table. I'm considering hitting you up about that...

    Alpenbolt, I get your point about mourning last season. It's almost like watching a really great show for a season that ends on a really bad note (any Dexter watchers on here?) But like the poster said this is a positive thread, we are trying to raise some spirits here.

    That said, since we've been talking about VJax's behavior I just saw this link: http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.co...ckson-was-arrested-again-before-playoff-game/

    Dude was arrested right before a playoff game? Says his music was too loud, kind of a dumb thing to get pulled over for but... for a guy I thought had a fairly high character level its starting to raise some doubts in my mind. Talent-wise I think we'd be insane to get rid of him but he needs to stay out of trouble. Didn't his DUI happen right before the Steelers game last season?

    Argh... it gets better: http://www.signonsandiego.com/news/2010/jan/18/bn18jackson/

    I have to say it is very disheartening. The negative vibes guys are having a field day. You try to post something positive and its like shark attack day. Old Bolts4LIFE IS having a field day. I think sometimes he lives for misfortune so he can be MR I told you so. He reminds me of the guys on the corner with the world is ending sign. His disciples are jumping on and it's not even safe to post anything postive except here. The Sharks are in a blood frenzy and the lynch mobs are forming. Maybe I'll stay out of here for a while. You guys don't have it perfect, and this team has problems, but it not that bad. These guys have had to be nice for so long it killed them. Now they are back on their crusade. Well here's to next year and laying low, so I don't get hung..........

    Dude, don't be afraid of them.

    You're always welcome in this thread as long as you bring the positiveness which we so desperately need right now.

    It's always darkest before the dawn.

    Although I think it might be a little too soon for anything positive, the only thing I could come up with was at least Rivers, and Gates will be back in 2010. :tup:

    I've been a Chargers fan for 40 years, and even though we've wandered in the wilderness all that time, I'm confident of seeing us reach the Promised Land before I die.

    They just better make it soon........people in my family only live into their 50s and 60s, and even though I'm going to be the one to break that mold, I really don't want to wait that long!!

    With a due respect RTL the Chargers are a hobby for you.

    I don't know the reason you have adopted the Lakers and the Dodgers but it probably has something to do with them winning during your youth. (If you are a 1960 Charger season ticket holder than my apologies.) Possibly you started rooting for the Chargers after LA lost its teams.

    Whatever the reason it doesn't matter because your other teams have won 12 championships since 1970. You know what it is like. You have tasted the glory.

    An across-the-board San Diego fan never has. The truth is unless someone is over 60 years and lived in San Diego all their life they have never experienced a championship season. That is a very small elite crowd.

    For you the Chargers are the runt of your family and it would be cool if they finally won one. But you always got basketball season to look forward to and a 25% chance at another title.

    So yeah for most Charger fans losing in the playoffs with one of the best teams we have ever had really does suck and is a bit more than just a loss that should be shrugged off in a day.

    For me your relentless positiveness is kind of a slap in the face to true SD fans and I emplore the mods to shut this thread down.
