    OK, what is your impression of the Chargers so far this preseason? I think that we have a lot to be hopeful and happy about.

    What is your take on the team?

    1 word: Inconsistent.

    Dominating at times, horrible at others.

    True, is part of that due to preseason, and the team not being on the field at the same time?

    I like everything except the damn penalties.

    Run blocking the last two games has been excellent.

    I don't even take the backups backups into consideration when evaluating, since most of them will be cut anyways. I pay attention to the first half, to the starters, their backups, and let me tell you this: Although I have great confidence in PR, we have a very, VERY good chance of sucking *** this year.

    But we could also win the whole damn thing. Inconsistency.

    I think Clinton Hart has been a huge disappointment this season, he looked out of place a few times and just did not step up like i thought he would......

    I try and be a positive guy.

    If I expect perfection I am bound to be disappointed.

    There obviously could be some improvement.

    Pass blocking, return game.

    I just watched Hardwick whiff on picking up Winstrom on a stunt that allowed a sack.

    But overall, like I already stated, I am happy. Hopefully everything gels when the regular season starts.

    I was serverly disappointed with Trumpet Man, he hseems to have lost a note, as he gets older the sound is not as clean. The consistancy that folks grew to expect from him has servrly fallen off. I am hoping that the bolts might be able to trade him for a first day fan draft pick.

    My impression is that we may be on the verge of having a dominating defense...the kind of defense that regularly holds opposing offenses under 17 points and is capable of completely stifling an offense on any given Sunday.

    I don't know what to think on offense. We look awesome except at the two most important positions--quarterback and OLT. I think our offense may end up resembling the '02 offense the year we went 8-8, but skill-position players and the defense will be better which will be enough to put us into postseason.

    I think the defense and those skill positions at the so important TE and RB will help carry us. I think that teh Bears in 01 or the Panthers in 03 would be better role-models to follow

    I'd rather follow the 2000 Ravens model, if we're going defense-dominant. :icon_mrgreen:

    Using the preseason to get the kinks out.... Defense is dominating. OL looks a bit shaky.... LT and Gates playing barely if any (the former).... Looks like 13-3 to me!
