    Not at all certain that either is a true 'starter" at the NT position - guys who can play there for the majority of game snaps at a high level are rare. If they can succeed in a rotation then that's success for the team IMO.

    Agreed. Not many Jamal-like NTs in the NFL right now. Aside from Poe, Ngata, and Cofield do any 3-4 NTs play more than 2/3 of the snaps?

    How has Lissemore been going? I don't get to see that many Chargers games.

    Lissemore has been pretty good. They were back to splitting pt last week. Out of 58 total plays on D, Thomas played 17, Lissemore 16.

    I am not sure if the two go together, but since it happened the D has been improved.

    It coincided with getting our 4 starting LBs back and benching Cox for Marshall. Pretty tough to separate all that out, but those changes together have definitely been working a helluva lot better.

    Excellent points. Te'o seems to be getting better game by game. Though I would like to see him go 'Seau' a bit more, and anticipate and jump the gap more. Ingram is good. I would like to see Pags get one more season with a healthy D.

    Te'o isn't and never will be a Seau. I think he'll become serviceable, maybe more, but I seriously doubt he's going to be a HOF'er.

    He had his best game against Oakland. Saw him meet the guard in the hole a couple times, stack him up and shed him. He's going to be good. Fans expected too much, too soon.
