    Anyone heard anything like this? From some fantasy football website I've never seen before (yeah, consider the "source"). I googled "Chargers Gates knees" and nothing else like this shows up besides this article.

    The guy who wrote this article is a moron.

    Theres no credible source that says anything about Gate's health as a concern.

    This peice says that his knees were the reason he didn't play the last preseason game, but why then would he have played so long in game 3? This logic doesn't add up. Sounds like BS to me.

    He also says that Rivers has absolutely nobody else to throw to? Also not true.

    Yeah. Knees?

    Gates' knees looked perfectly fine when he outjumped that Rams DB several weeks ago to catch a 28 yard pass from Rivers.

    Hmmm, getting some background info on this Paul Eide cat that wrote the article:

    http://www.steelersfever.com/columnists/paul_eide.html

    Dude's a fuggin Squealers fan and is wishing Gates has bad knees so his own team's TE Heath Miller can be pumped up as elite. He probably still has the butt hurt from his team's *** whooping last year.

    Nice that Paul Eide has inside sources that no one else does.

    Gates sure looked great in his last preseason appearance. And has he even missed a practice? Don't you think he might have missed a practice or two if he were injured?

    He lost me at "absolutely no one to throw to outside of Gates".

    Obviously made up tripe.

    There is not 1 blurb anywhere in the Fantasy news on the Network sites about any injury.

    CBS, ESPN, NFL, FOX. nada.

    Guy is full of shet.

    Yup.

    I'm thinking he puts out a "LT cracked his ribs again, this time in practice" ** INSIDER ** article just so he can grab LT while others fight over Larry Johnson, Steven Jackson, and Shaun Alexander. :yes:

    His resume´says ESPN and he's a fantasy football talking head. I'll write and ask him if he knows how to cure my jock itch. i'm sure he'll come up with something.
