    BFTB_Chargers: Woah. RT @matthewsimila: @UTKevinAcee just called Jared Gaither a lazy bum who is faking injury on @DSmithShow Uh-oh! #calledout(4 minutes ago from TweetDeck)

    Ooooh burn!


    EDIT:

    Aww... maybe not so much burn :p I didn't hear it live, anyone else?? Interested to know what he actually said. Gaither situation is stressing me out :eek:

    UTKevinAcee: @BFTB_Chargers I did not say those things. Called Gaither out for sure. but that tweet was a mischaracterization. (1 minute ago from Twitter for iPhone in reply toBFTB_Chargers)

    Well, if rumor is true, the Ravens fans called him "Jared Game Day", because he only showed up for games, never for practice.

    He has been calling him out for a little bit, namely that he needs to get his *** out there and start practicing. It's not quite the burn it was being suggested but it doesn't change the fact Acee is calling him out again

    Unless Gaither can really show he's in pain and needs it, he's been called out and has to show what's going on

    Edit: The interview Acee makes it sound like the team is absolutely going to call Gaither out, that they think he's pulling the same garbage that he pulled in the past and that if he doesn't show he can play at all in the pre-season that there will be "hell to pay" about this. There appears to be nothing out there suggesting that Gaither really is risking injury if he plays (but admits information isn't solid on that) I don't know what the team will do but frankly for as great of an off-season as AJ has had, this is a MASSIVE MASSIVE mistake on his part not to prepare a backup plan for a player with an injury/laziness history

    This figures, arguably the most important signee of the entire offseason and it looks like its going to blow up in AJ's face.

    Not if he shows up on Sunday and plays like he did last season. Gaither basically got off the bus and started.

    Maybe, Jared knows he's only got so much energy to expend, so he conserves it for game day (just a thought).

    Just wondering if Acee is related to AJ... It seems that whenever he says anything, the masses are drinking out of his jock cup...

    Gaither answered some tough questions. Said it would be "foolish" to question his motivation. Doesn't want to put rivers at risk (cont)

    Scott Bair@NCTchargers
    Cont: ...by coming back too soon.

    He has a point

    Because, Rivers is much safer with a UDFA rookie protecting his blindside. ;)

    Gaither has been very quiet and cryptic about this whole thing up until today, he's been asking for this kind of reaction.

    So Acee is the new team doctor now?? Gaither went to three doctors and I'm sure they reported their findings to the Chargers, If you know what those reports state then please share or STFU.

    To play devils advocate though, how often do you hear about back spasms keeping a player out 3 weeks? Usually its something more serious than that.

    No one has stated the cause, so I'm not taking any wild guesses or calling him out. If it turns out he's just laying out then he'll deserve the heat he gets not only from the club but the fans as well.

    Anyone got access to Acee's column in the UT?, he's written one about Gaither. The only interesting thing I got out of the interview was how heated Acee got when talking bout what might happen if Gaither is not playing against San Fran. I'm taking it that the brass are real pissed at the guy. You have to wonder what his fellow O linemen think... this guy had already dug himself a big enough hole (even if he filled it with 8m dollars), he had better stop digging and man up and play. We're in trouble if he chickens out.

    On a sidenote, anyone else like the look of Davis sat nite?. I thought he looked ok and strangely might be a better option than Harris. What's up with Henderson? didn't he play left tackle for the Raiders? ok so he is not fantastic but surely he has more than Harris at this point in their careers?

    I think as long as dim-wits keep piling on Gaither his back will never get better. ;)

    Leave it to the folks who know his condition & are communicating with him. If there's really an issue, I'm going to rely on the MEN who work with him to address it.

    The word on Henderson is that he's not going to make the team.

    I disagree that with that statement. AJ did what was best for the team and JG choose not to live up to his end of the deal. JG blew up in his own face.

    This is all Pre-Season Gossip, if he can deliver on gameday is all that matters.

    No problem with that as Schilling will make the team now!
