    I've been hearing about this guy for years but never once listened to him/heard him on the radio. These last few days when I jump onto the XX1090 app, he seems to be on around midday your time in SD. Is it just me or does the guy appear to be begging people to call in/interact with him?, is it just me or does it appear he has a v small audience?. I can't believe this guy is getting paid to waffle on the way he does. Unreal.

    He's spouting on about us going after Asomugha. I disagree. We don't need him, we have bigger needs than CB, esp one like he that will cost a fortune, money that we should be spending on the likes of VJ.

    Asomugha is one of the best corners in the league...don't you think we could do with one of those? Cason has yet to prove himself worthy of being the number one opp Jammer and also Jammer won't be around forever.

    If we can afford it, it would be a great hire! Time and time again we see how effective defences are with two top corners in your team sgutting down the passing game.

    Hacksaw is a very professional radio talent, moreso than anyone else on 1090, but his whole shtick is to stir up controversy to boost his calls and ratings. He was on the evening drive, but got moved to mid-day which is a poor slot, a demotion. Personally, I find his act to tired and dated, just not fresh, and very contrived. I have trouble listening to him.

    he's a hack, plain and simple, and, unlike Old school, I think he's unprofessional, tinme and time again he misquotes or misrepresents facts to stir sh1t up, example: an article (from espn or something like that) said "..I [the writer] half expected him [AJ] to say 'we don't negotiate with terrorists' [in regards with the VJ negotiations]...", Quaksaw, when talking about AJ keep doing his "QUOTE...AJ...we don't negotiate with terrorists...

    I think Cason is a stud and that's the point 'if we can afford it'. We can't, we need to spend the $ elsewhere i.e. on VJ/D line/O line imho. Aso is a great talent, just saying in terms of needs CB is well down the list. If Jam moves to safety then it is a whole different ballgame. Wouldn't it be great to find another McCourty in the draft.

    I agree. Cason is doing fine. People are picking on him because of a few high profile blunders... the same way Jammer got picked on by fans before they realized they had a really good corner in him.

    We have too many other places to put our money. If this wasn't true of most teams in the league *all* teams would be going after Namndi. Just because someone is a great player doesn't mean he is a fit for the team. Fans wanting him is more fantasy football than actual football.

    He has the only professional radio voice at 1090, he has a very polished schtick he puts alot of time into, I just like you think he's all about stirring up controversy for ratings at the cost of reporting accuracy.

    How is it you are defining professional radio voice? Seems to me by definition if you are getting paid to talk on the raidio, that makes yours a professional radio voice... What am I missing?

    Last off season he was making a HUGE deal about how the Chargers screwed up by franchising Sproles, which increase his RFA price. He was going OFF about how they "should have tendered him with a lower offer instead of franchising him". I called to correct him and let him know that the only 'lower' tender option they had was transition tag, and had they used that, they wouldn't have received any comp if another team came in and signed him.

    Like he does everyone, he cut me off and didn't let me get out what I was trying to say. So I then emailed him to explain it to him, and he responded "My listeners don't care about the in depth details". So basically, he is blatantly lying to his listeners because they aren't smart enough to catch him on it.

    Quacksaw is not legit, dude sucked doing the Charger games years ago and has hated the team since he was fired.
