    since we have a bye week and not a whole lot to talk about I figured we can try to answer the questions we had coming into the season (I Know it's too early but WTH)

    (Using injury report terminology will play 100% chance of happening, probable 75% , questionable 50%, doubtfull 25%, out 0%)

    1. Rivers at QB - will play
    2. McNeill at LT - probable
    3. McCree as S - probable
    4. Cromartie an starting CB - questionable
    5. VJ at WR - questionable
    6. Bingham at backup NT - doubtfull

    with that in mind, what do we need for next season?

    I say

    1) NT
    2) WR
    3) OL

    and not much else

    LInebackers. Both inside and outside. They'll hopefully be able to get one in free agency and then get the other via the draft.

    you're right I forgot that we're losing Godfrey, Edwards and probably Foley

    that leaves Merriman,Cooper,Wilhelm and Phillips with Dobbins, Polk Harris as backups

    We need a stud at safety to pair with McCree.... perhaps Landry?.... I agree about our need for another NT, but I also think Castillo may be being groomed for the position.... remember, most dominant NTs didnt start that way; they were above average DTs and "grew" into the position.... I think Castillo could be that guy. Foobs is right about the LB position.... Id like to see a stud ILB selected to compete with Cooper, Dobbins and Wilhelm. I think another OT should be pursued as well to bookend with McNeill.... that way Olivea can slide inside, making our OL dominant. I am NOT concerned about WR, we have talent at the position and only need the OL to hold up for big plays to be made..... we may need to select a backup RB in the draft as well to fill in for the Burner after he moves on to start elsewhere.....

    i would think it'll be a WR, Safety, or Linebacker in round 1

    RG/RT (depends where Olivea is going to end up)
    NT (I like Bingham but he needs to prove himself a bit more)
    WR (Depends on Floyd and Jackson development)
    LB (Wilhelm might leave)
    LG (Same with Dielman)

    1. Offensive line - best player available at right tackle. A swing tackle would be killer but a true lock down right tackle is the ticket. Olivea goes to right guard.
    2. Defensive line - Nose tackle
    3. Wide receiver (or best offensive lineman available)
    4. Kick returner / Punt returner

    If Kiel continues to play hard, we won't need a safety to pair up with McCree, we'll already have one.

    San Diego splits the safety responsibility per Marlon's interview which he also said he did not have a problem whereas most teams have a FS who is "the man" (reads a lot of Cover 2 is planned in Uncle Wade's schemes).

    Some larger breasted Charger girls. Their boobs just aren't big enough for me.

    We dont need a KR/PR.. we'll have Sproles back next year. I'd rather steal away a decent ST Coach.

    When Dom Capers was fired by the Texans, and the remaining coaches' positions were in doubt in Houston, we should have gone after their ST coach, Joe Marciano.

    :tup: Oh HECK YEAH we should have gone after Marciano then just my opinion here, I thnk that our ST would be much better of a unit than what we have now with Steve Crosby as the Coach.:tup:
