    The original lightning bug


    The new, just-as-good, cheaper lightning bug



    If Sproles goes, the 91st pick seems like a match for Dexter McCluster and the Chargers!!!

    When you said "the original lightning bug" I was expecting James Brooks or Little Train James. :icon_blur:

    Letting Brooks get away was another in a long string of Chargers mistakes.

    If we get a second for Sproles, then we get Best. But this still concerns me

    If I recall, Sproles ran a 4.48 (only 2 tenths faster). And if you watch the videos, McCluster plays faster than Sproles does

    Lightning Bug (aka midget)

    In human anatomy, a person of very small stature whose bodily proportions, intelligence, and sexual development are within the normal range. Diminutive stature occurs sporadically in families the rest of whose members are of ordinary size. The children of midgets are usually of ordinary height and proportions. This term is often considered pejorative; the term proportionate dwarf is now preferred. See dwarfism; Pygmy; Darren Sproles.

    The year James Brooks left we picked up Little Train.
    Train was more Sproles like.

    I hope we don't have a repeat of Sproles leaving for McCluster like Brooks and Little Train. This franchise has done quite well with the "little guys." I hope AJ finds enough $$ to pay Sproles to keep him here a few more years.

    I am sure the Chargers would love to re-sign Sproles. But the dude wants top RB money, and isn't worth anywhere near it. IF he is a little over paid, fine. But there is no reason they should pay him 200% of what he deserves, like his agent demanded last year when he was on XX and was very clear that they wanted Micheal Turner type money

    Maybe in hindsight but not at the time.

    There were not many fans who said "goodie we got Wes Chandler" even though he was producing at a high level for the Saints. Wes had to prove himself here and he did.

    JJ (John Jefferson) started the towel waving thing for you younger fans. The brother was a cheerleader on the sidelines getting the fans to make some noise. Everyone loved JJ and when he split it was like losing the soul of the team. It would be like losing LT when he was in his prime. It should not happen but it did. Wes Chandler was every bit as good. I remember watching Wes's game where he caught for 260 yards or some ridiculous number of yards. I think it still stands as a Chargers record today.
