    I saw a site going thru teams' 'Mount Rushmore'. The Chargers is pretty easy I guess - Fouts, Tomlinson, Alworth, Seau? Anybody make a case for anyone else?

    Top Ten would get a little hairy for sure. Mine would be...
    1. Fouts
    2. Tomlinson
    3. Alworth
    4. Seau
    5. Gates
    6. Winslow
    7. Lowe
    8. Hadl
    9. Wilkerson
    10. Joiner
    10a. Jefferson (short tenure but he was THE best at the time)

    note: no player who went on to play for Raiders or said he would play for Raiders would make my list (Mix, Harrison)

    The first four on your list probably would be it. Fouts, Seau, Tomlinson, Allworth. They were the most noteworthy players of their Charger eras. Can a case be made for Coryell over Allworth? I am not sure if coaches come into play.

    Who would be the anit-Rushmore. AJ, Norv, ?, ?

    But does anybody actually know anything about that Precambrian Lance guy?

    Seems like it should be someone a little closer to the iPad era...you know, a Humphries or Sproles

    I would definitely open it to coaches...add Sid Gillman and Don Coryell at least for consideration. One or both of these men has to be on there IMO
