    Man sports guys are being really bad about NFL firsts for the Chargers. In the Ravens game after Floyd caught his TD, they put up a stat on the TV that said it was his first NFL TD catch (it was his first since he caught Rivers first TD pass back in 2004).

    jUst a guess. But they're gonna have to give mcniel more vitamins or something to strengthen his bone system. We want this kid around for at least 10 more years.

    McNeill is play with no paws, and is still dominating.

    McNeill, Oben updates
    Left tackle Marcus McNeill had surgery yesterday to place a pin in his broken right hand but is not expected to miss any practice time or a game.

    McNeill broke the hand against Pittsburgh on Oct. 8 but played Sunday. He had surgery in August to put a pin in his broken left hand.

    I'm glad McNeill isn't Fonoti. Fatnoti would have already been on IR .... for the last broken bone in his hand.

    I can't imagine surviving more than a day or two if BOTH of my hands were broken.

    Yes, he also ran in a TD. USA Today is dead wrong. They also say that because he took the kneel down he has held off Volek for the backup QB spot. That isn't true either.

    Fonoti would have sued for workman's comp and retired.

    I honestly wonder how dominant McNeill is going to be when he finally gets to play with two working hands. I mean, it's not like the guy has struggled...

    :icon_eek: McNeill is dominant now.:icon_eek:

    :icon_eek: It is going to be very scary to see what he can do with both of his hands intact and 100%.:icon_eek:

    Just amputate his hands and replace them with 24" extensions.

    McNeil playing at this high level with two broken hands is remarkable.
    He is the steal of the draft.
