    <blockquote>By Nick Canepa

    The Chargers football men who have been around the bases a few times talk about it, even those who mix about as well as a scotch and Pepto cocktail. It's called the window of opportunity. And it's a fickle thing, this window. It can slam shut on your head before you know it.

    Once, in the days before free agency-induced player movement and the salary cap, the window remained open for many years for some NFL organizations. It wasn't as tricky. Wise franchises such as the Steelers, Raiders, Cowboys and 49ers were able to keep it from closing by hanging onto their best players while sprinkling young talent on the meat.</blockquote>
