    Hey look, this thread again.

    Another year, SOS. You would think people would be used to it by now.

    though you agree with me that its not surprising, you would like to see some movement by the Chargers anyway no?

    Complaining about it on an internet message board isn't going to make it happen. :icon_shrug:

    Exactly. We didn't sign Peppers therefore we are not doing anything in free agency.

    :yes:

    You think they would learn that AJ never jumps into the first wave of FA. :icon_shrug:

    AJ's MO is build a team through the Draft.

    Very rarely does he go into Free Agency to sign the Big Names.

    That is my broken record going on and on.

    Since I was not on this board for the oast years of this topic, humor me, why would you like to spend big money on a Band-Aid FA instead of signing our players who we rosk losing over the next 2 years. We have 4 guys right now that need to be signed and atleast that many next year. VJax, McNeil, Floyd, and Merriman.

    So who would you have signed now in the first 5 days of the FA period, who would you have sat so they could play, and which one of our RFA's and next years FA group do you not want to sign to fit this new player onto the roster.

    Remember, we can only sign one guy here because of the Final 8 rule over $5 mill.

    AJ will sign smart stopgaps after the hype dies down, like Burnett last year, and DT Tony Brown and CB Lito Sheppard this year.
