    WIth things going poorly on Defense and on O line and running the ball, the chargers passing game has been the only thing keeping them in games!! It has been the second best behind IND and the 3 time mvp Manning... Anyway, Rivers is having a phenominal year considering the circumstances. Putting up top notch stats despite no run game, and no protection at all. On top of that he only has 1 receiver and of course Antonio Gates. The way Rivers is playing as a 1 man team, If he got some another good or perhaps great receiver he would could have a record breaking year and a passing game rivaling the 07 patriots. With may holes in Defense and O line getting 1 more good or great receiver could make the offense unstopable, able to put up 28 points in a Quarter. WIth the trade deadline days away, this might be the best chance to make a superbowl run this year. No matter how pourus our defense is if rivers can just chuck TD's and make ton's of completions, We will be able to do great against any D. He already torched baltimore and Pittsburgh who have great D's. I say get another receiver, like a slot guy or another big play guy and The chargers will be that offensive Passing Jaugernaut no one wants to play! We could deal sproles(since he will likely leave 4 money) and chambers! What WR could we trade 4 to become a jaugernaut? TO(ewww)? Santana Moss? Brandon Marshall(maybe 4 Merriman)? Dwane Bowe? Calvin Johnson?

    The passing game is the only part of the team that doesn't need help so why should that be what we trade for?

    The WRs behind VJ aren't superstars but they're still getting the job done as a unit.

    I think you should stick to analyzing how much Norv sucks.

    I appreciate your creativity but if you think that the Chargers are going to trade Merriman or Sproles to a division rival you must be nuts....The Lions are NOT going to trade Calvin Johnson for anything short of a Herchell Walker type deal. The WR corp is fine right now, if we trade for anybody it should be for help in the trenches. Everything else can be added through the draft/FA. Unless we improve defensively it doesn't matter if we bring in any of the WR's you mentioned we still won't be a playoff caliber team--bank it.

    Yeh but merriman will cost too much or leave anyway... Sproles may too. I didn't say the Calvin Johnson or Marshall trade would ever happen. It would be sick though? We'd get better getting Marshall than the Broncos would getting anyone.

    Rivers is awesome but he only has two good targets so we need to trade Merriman, Sproles, and/or Chambers for another WR.

    Because if it were just a little better we probably wouldn't have lost those games, at least baltimore game...

    Rivers threw for 436 yards against the Ravens.

    What they needed in that game was a head coach who would trust his QB who's thrown for 436 yards on the day with the game on the line instead of running up the gut with his 5'6" RB against a team that hadn't allowed a 100 yard rusher in 2 years.

    listen man put down the xbox 360 contoller and eject madden '10 from the system asap...we are not trading ANY one for a WR before the deadline... My chances of scoring a date with Megan Fox are better than this.

    Just to be clear, I do not agree with the original poster. I was merely clarifying what he said in the long winded run-on sentence.

    I understood that, maybe it's because I read the entire thread :icon_shrug:

    EDIT : PS no trading for another WR, a NT yes, but not a WR

    I do not think that we need a little bit more help with the WR's ranks.

    WE need the BIG BEEF BEEFY BEEF on the O-Line. :tup:
    That will solve a lot of problems offensively.
