    He's playing like a beast on the nose. Three tackles for a loss and a sack when we were otherwise getting pushed around. He's bringing his A-game.

    Antonio Garay found the fountain of youth (reads "the clear") it appears. Good for him. If you ain't cheating, you ain't trying.

    I could be wrong but T man may be suggesting that Garay may be doing a Merriman circa 06. Having said that, for me, Garay has been a massive (literally) surprise. The guy has been great. I've totally forgotten Jamal. I was at Wembley and believe it or not I though Jamal looked small and did not seem to be making any impact at all. Another (double) good decision by AJ.

    I know Garay personally and there's no way he's doing anything of the sort.. if you followed his career, you'll know why he hasn't been great up until at this point...

    Well, first of all, he never was in to lifting weights.. he was always naturally gifted as a national champion wrestler.. I was on both his HS wrestling and football teams.. He just assumed that his natural abilities would get him to where he was.. and let's not take away the injuries.. He's had an injury every year.. the years he played w/ the Bears.. he was behind Tommy Harris, all pro dtackle, as well as alfonso boone, whom was just cut by the Chargers.. Finally, Tone was healthy and he dedicated himself in the gym and put on his weight to 330lbs w/ muscle when historically, he was in the 305-310 weight and for a dtackle, just not suffice..

    Oh yeah, i was at the game where he got his first career sack.. week 4 vs. the Cards.. you have no idea how proud we were/are.. you should have seen the look on his father's face when he got that sack.. btw, his dad played for the Rams...

    Dude has been one of the most impressive nose tackles in the game this year. I know the Chiefs get handled by teams with dominant NTs. Garay was a big part of that butt whippin we took.

    Garay is the man. 71 will be my next jersey as soon as AJ locks him down.

    Then tell Antonio that most of us thought he was not worth a SH IT and this year he has proved a lot of fans wrong.

    Oh and if he ain't cheating - he ain't trying.

    Tell the brother that it is not cool to jump on another dudes back during field goals to elevate his enormous as.s. That was hilarious.

    If you remember Sunday Night Football, he didn't say BC or Boston College, he said, "Rahway High School."

    if you watched the play closely, he actually never used leverage.. he had already leaped over the snapper, but the way the position ended up, it looked like he was using the other player as leverage.. either way it was a bonehead play but it worked out.

    and that may be the dumbest thing anyone has ever said, if he's not cheating, he's not trying.. cheating and getting caught is worse than not cheating.. i hope the rest of you chargers fans aren't as dumb as this guy.

    He plays hard and dominates players left and right. I think he'll be even better when Rivera decides to rotate him more effectively with Cam Thomas (NOT OG!) which will keep him fresher throughout the game

    Garay is the new monster in the middle. Oh and hey, that pen did give us the chance to shutout the 9ers. Gotta look at the bright side. He didn't get much leverage anyway.
