    Yep, he's in that group also, just didn't mention him because he was already mentioned in one of those tweets Dave.

    Look, let's be honest here, some guys are "career College coaches" and that's it !!!!! ......some will be able to make the transition also and deal with the totally different scene that is Pro and College.

    I believe College is more about "teaching" than Pro's ........ In my mind, if you haven't learnt the game by the time your 22/23, then your pushing shite up hill, whereas in the Pro's, it's more about building team chemistry for success.

    Ofcourse, there's always a little give and take in that process and success at the lower level, certainly doesn't guarantee the same at the next, as many players can attest too.

    The perfect example BLEW ..... They have had some excellent College QBs, but as Pros, they totally sucked the Big One.

    So, your saying we probably should draft Barkley as a backup in case Fillup sucks again !!!! :)

    Pump, you're really starting to worry me ........

    Are we gonna need to explain every post in GREEN when we are being a little sarcastic or what ???

    If these diets and workouts and NO Zin are gonna effect you to that point, I say just go back to 3 Cray and 3 bottles of whatever a day, it's not worth it.

    Hell, if the Jets don't call him, at least he's knows its time for that hammock on a beach in Hawaii.

    Ayup - time to switch over to who is our DC - OC - and just as important, Special Teams Coach?

    Going to be an interesting week or two as MM puts together his coaching staff - after those "prime" decisions have been made, it would be a very good time for the team to also look at the medical staff, and conditioning staff. If changes are to be made there - this next month is the time to do so, unless they want to defer until after the draft... (which is what, only 98 days or so away?)

    As a fan, my main concern will be to see if McCoy and Pags are a match. Hope John got rid of the "pigpen" look after the season. <sigh> Love the guy, but "scruffy" is not the way to do a job interview.

    Don't forget the pepperoni! ;)

    Setting here hoping that Stanford offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton is on McCoy's short list for O/C. <sigh> (He has to hurry up and put together his staff so Jacko and the rest of us can talk about where he went wrong). ;)

    I am going to just sit back and wait for some games to be played! A year late but I finally got what I wanted from the Bolts. I do hope the JP stays as DC, I like the younger fresh guys to work with Johnny boy down the road!

    If I get a job with some good $ I'll would even like to pick up some seats!

    I am very selective on what I apply to, at my age its a last shot to make some good money!

    Went to West Marine to look at fish finders and the one I like is $2300 :rolleyes:
    This could change how my job search continues ...............
    Just had the resume redone the lady could really add in the BS! :D

    Wonder if Russ Grim might follow? You just never know...

    ~~~

    Speaking of the O-Line, I keep forgetting - we do have a young fatboy named Johnnie Troutman I keep forgetting about. Can't wait to see what he's got now that he has had a full year to recover from that torn pec/surgery... Could turn out to be one hell of an investment if he can unseat Green as starting OLG.;)

    At times like these, I need a pizza. Damn you, Pump.

    Anyway, I'm actually very excited to see what's to come for the Chargers. I assume they're keeping the same DC?

    So far, it sounds like it..... if they wanted somebody else, they should've released Pags by now.

    Pags, being under contract, was less important to set down with than getting in the O/C they wanted I would imagine. Won't be surprised if they offer our D/C an extended new contract as part of keeping him. Of course, all of that is supposition on my part. ;)

    I know Jack wasn't impressed, but for a 1st time DC, I thought Pags did a decent job overall. If it takes 3 years to evaluated a player, I think it takes more than one to decide if a guy can become a quality coordinator or not. Manusky had experience, and he was much worse. A lot of our break downs were player f'ups, rather than a matter of calling the wrong defense.

    He and Kimmy should get along like a couple of Zorro's while taking a piss at the urinals I bet.

    I really didn't see that much improvement in our D overall to be honest, we still lack penetration ability and passing pressure and although the blitzing seemed a little more often, not sure it had the desired effect all that often on opposing teams.

    We need personal first and foremost, hopefully Ingram can improve on what he showed his rookie year and Butler can keep improving, but the front 3 need to get more push at the LOS for our LB and safety's to have the influence we'd like to see.

    Don't care who the DC is, but as long as we have the likes of Jam and Cason as our last line of defense, there are going to be problems, that area needs a massive overhaul NOW........I'd still move Jam to safety and see what he can bring, what's to lose ?

    A lot will depend of who stays and who goes ofcourse, fair chance we lose at least 4. starters from last years team and there aren't to many of our backups that have shown they are ready to step in......so either the FA market must be scoured hard or a top draft pick spent on finding a quality guy to start .....

    Time to cut the likes of English, Mouton etc, just don't cut it and never will, tying up a roster unnecessarily has been a trait of this franchise for far to long and needs to change, said it before, 3 years to show you belong or on your horse.

    I have no worries if Pags is retained, but I do want to see a different attitude on the defensive side of the ball, maybe he was under strict Norf instructions to play a certain way ?, well now that has all changed so show us what YOU can do.
