    Earlier this week, the Chargers rewarded offensive tackle Roman Oben with a two-year contract extension. When the deal was announced, Oben wasn't the only one grinning ear to ear.

    "At that left tackle position, he's my best buddy," said quarterback Drew Brees. "He's big. He's a tough cookie. He's a guy who is dependable. I'm extremely pleased in the organization's decision to keep him around."

    Brees' comment about his admiration comes from the fact that Oben has provided a pillar of stability while protecting the quarterback's backside over the course of the last season and a half. Ask many personnel directors around the NFL and they'll most likely tell you that next to the quarterback, the left tackle is the most important position in an offense.</blockquote>
