    Boomer Esiason almost was a QB for the Chargers. Listening to his radio show this morning in NY and he said that the year after he retired from the Bengals (before his contract was up) that Bobby Bethard gave him a call and asked if he would be interested in coming back and QB'ing for the Chargers. His agent went back to the Bengals and they refused to release him (as the Jets did for Favre) so he could QB for us. He said that they in no way wanted him playing for the Bolts.

    I little somrthing I found interesting.

    And yet many will bash our GM because they don't hear about him "inquiring" about the availability of players. And yet he could be all along.:icon_shrug:
