    Fawwwwwwwwwkkkkkk ... Dobbins traded, Butler down.

    I sure hope that Burnett has decided that those screws in his neck are good to go & no reason to be timid.

    Man I wanted Cooper to get beat out of his job ..... :icon_evil:

    The Chargers will now look to James Holt, Antwan Applewhite or even undrafted rookie Kion Wilson to fill the void left by Butler, who had been running with the second team and was expected to push Kevin Burnett for playing time.

    “He’s a heck of a kid and a talented guy that I think was going to be a part of what we do,” Norv Turner said. “Obviously, we’ve been through this. We’ve got to find a way to get the other guys involved. I think we have enough guys in there."


    bad news What's about Darry Beckwith ? AJ has to sign Merriman.

    Crap about Butler. I was really excited to see him perform. Get well, Donald!

    What's this with Buster? Man, if he can't even make it through training camp, our depth is shrinking away fast if VJ is gone.

    Not really. Right now we are deeper than ever at WR. Of course many are UDFAs who are camp fodder... Wait, that is basically what Buster is...

    Ne'er mind... We are good.

    Thats to bad, i was looking forward to seeing the kid go, he looked like he had potential. On the other note Cooper has no chance of being unseated this year folks, hes the capt. of the D and he is coming off 3 straight years leading the team in tackles so for all u cooper haters get over it.

    Buster, if healthy, is going to out perform a rookie UDFA on the field.

    Are you good with just Malcolm, Legedu, and Josh Reed as your starters then? Having Gary Banks, Jeremy Williams, and Seyi as the backups is not what I envision as being super deep. Plus Malcolm and Legs both have histories of getting injured.

    If VJ is out for 10 games or traded, trust me we will all be happier if Buster is in the mix.

    There goes some of our Pass Rush. :(

    The Chargers need a lot of Pass rushers and right now I do not see much on the roster right now. :(

    There was a #59 on the team once that led the team in tackles too, and that didn't turn out so good.

    Waters was injured from the get go, even when we drafted him
    Butler has been healthy all his college career

    Super bummed about this. I was really excited to see this kid in pre-season and thought he had a chance to be an impact rookie. Hope he makes a full recovery and comes back strong in 11.

    just to clarify on Buster, Darren Smith latter said that he did finish practice so it must have been a cramp or something like that.

    Sorry, didn't have time to post this

    Our season was NOT riding on Butler performing.

    However....with no real depth at WR, we will struggle. Our season could be jeopardized because of the WR position.

    just sayin'..........:icon_shrug:

    thanks for the update. Losing 2 borderline starters in one day would have suuuuucked. Man, I am bummed about Butler.
