    With the current OLine in place, his career has gone from long and full of prosperity, to one, almost past the point of no return.

    To say 2013 is a "make or break season" would be a huge understatement.

    I can't believe it took you 2 days to find that ????..........................you really are getting slack.

    In fact, if Im not mistaken, that comment from a Cason - Lover I posted the other day ( #40385 ), was from this very article above........ ;)

    Ohhhhhh, and as far as the article itself !!!! .......................seriously, what decent journo would even have to ask such a question to begin with ?

    my advice to him ...................find another occupation, you suck at your current one. :whistling:

    I saw it two days ago, but didn't bother then...... so sue me. ;)

    Lets see, the guy was a 1st round pick, but when his deal is up, his original team doesn't even try to resign him. Instead, he takes his 1st round abilities to the Cardinals and signs a whopping $2 million one year deal.

    Yeah, there's really room for debate there......... B......U......S......T!!!! :tdown:

    Oh I'm sure there are a few desperado's out there willing to jump oon those baby's too ...........

    Turdle rang me last week and was telling me about some Company out of China he and his buddies were using ............ they are paying like $18 AUD for top class jerseys and that includes shipping ...... you can't beat that, he said they were in excellent condition, although obvious fakes and you'd be hard pressed to tell the difference from the one's sold at the Charger shop for $350/$400......

    The most you can say for Cason was he played..... he avoided injuries.

    But that's easily done, when you play 10 yards off the receiver, and shy away from contract. Your worst concern is a pulled muscle. ;)

    I believe my Merriman jersey was a fake...... the price was too good, and I got it from Ebay.

    It's only fitting really, since he was a fake too. :laugh:

    In this series of pieces, Pro Football Focus is hammering into the value of players. To us it’s a “Performance Based Value” number, telling you what players were worth (by our grading) in 2012. You can read about the work we’ve done to create it here, but in short:
    • It’s solely about what a player did on the field in 2012
    • Players are grouped by positions so their play essentially earns them a portion of the positional salary pool
    • It’s all about cap hits (these values are approximate)
    Here are 2012′s most undervalued and overvalued San Diego Chargers:
    (* Denotes player missed significant portion of time through injury)
    Undervalued
    1. Corey Liuget, Defensive End
    After something of a disappointing rookie year, Liuget looked a lot more comfortable in the NFL in 2012. He ended the year our eighth-ranked 3-4 defensive end, finishing with a healthy 33 quarterback disruptions, 28 defensive stops and eight batted passes. Incredible production as the Chargers benefit from the rookie wage cap.
    2012 Cap Hit: $1.9m
    2012 Performance Based Value: $6.2m
    Value Differential: +$4.3
    2. Donald Butler, Linebacker
    Butler established himself as the leader in waiting of a Chargers defense undergoing something of a transformation in personnel. His work in the run game earned him the 15th-highest grade of all inside linebackers, hardly earth shattering but at such a small cost Butler represents tremendous value.
    2012 Cap Hit: $700k
    2012 Performance Based Value: $4m
    Value Differential: +$3.4m
    3. Louis Vasquez, Offensive Guard
    Vasquez is getting ready for free agency and after the year he had it couldn’t come at a better time. Our 13th-ranked guard in 2012 didn’t exactly ‘wow’ us with his run blocking, but with teams needing guards to prevent pressure up the gut, it should be noted he gave up only 22 quarterback disruptions on 584 pass blocking snaps.
    2012 Cap Hit: $1.5m
    2012 Performance Based Value: $4.3m
    Value Differential: +$2.8m
    4. Danario Alexander, WR – Cap: $300k, PBV: $2.5m, Value Differential: +$2.2m
    5. Malcom Floyd, WR – Cap: $3.3m, PBV: $5.2m, Value Differential: +$1.9m
    6. Eric Weddle, S – Cap: $7.6m, PBV: $9.3m, Value Differential: +$1.7m
    7. Ryan Mathews, RB – Cap: $2.4m, PBV: $3.9m, Value Differential: +$1.6m
    8. Cam Thomas, NT – Cap: $600k, PBV: $2.1m, Value Differential: +$1.5m
    9. Ronnie Brown, RB – Cap: $1m, PBV: $2.5m, Value Differential: +$1.5m
    10. Aubrayo Franklin, NT – Cap: $600k, PBV: $2.1m, Value Differential: +$1.5m
    Overvalued
    1. Philip Rivers, Quarterback
    There was a time when a $15.3m cap hit for Rivers would look like a bargain. Now it’s looking like one of the biggest wastes of money out there. Rivers would finish only 16th among quarterbacks for his adjusted accuracy percentage on deep balls, with his 637 deep yards only 18th. He looks and plays like a shadow of his former self.
    2012 Cap Hit: $15.3m
    2012 Performance Based Value: $5m
    Value Differential: -$10.3m
    2. Antonio Gates, Tight End
    No longer the league’s premier tight end, Antonio Gates picked up just 1.03 yards per route run. Only Kellen Davis and Anthony Fasano had fewer amounts, and at least in the case of Fasano he can be counted on to deliver the goods with his blocking. Gates has battled injuries the past few years and while this contract made sense when he was at the top of his game, now it represents horrible value for money.
    2012 Cap Hit: $6.4m
    2012 Performance Based Value: $1.5m
    Value Differential: -$4.8m
    3. Shaun Phillips, Linebacker
    It’s no surprise the Chargers are prepared to part with long-time outside linebacker Phillips. The most familiar face on their defense, Phillips’ play fell off a cliff this year as he managed just 39 quarterback disruptions on 403 pass rushes. Couple that with some horrible run defense and you’ve got our second-lowest ranked outside linebacker on the year.
    2012 Cap Hit: $5.6m
    2012 Performance Based Value: $900k
    Value Differential: -$4.7m
    4. Quentin Jammer, CB – Cap: $4m, PBV: $1.1m, Value Differential: -$2.9m
    5. Robert Meachem, WR – Cap: $3.8m, PBV: $700k, Value Differential: $-2.7m
    6. Jeromey Clary, OT – Cap: $4.5m, PBV: $2.2m, Value Differential: -$2.4m
    7. Eddie Royal, WR – Cap: $3m, PBV: $800k, Value Differential: -$2.2m
    8. Jared Gaither, OT – Cap: $3m, PBV: $1.1m, Value Differential: -$1.9m
    9. Nick Hardwick, OC – Cap: $3m, PBV: $1.2m, Value Differential: -$1.8m
    10. Takeo Spikes, LB – Cap: $3.6m, PBV: $1.9m, Value Differential: -$1.7m
    Summary – Team Value Differential: -$15.2m
    Is anyone surprised that the Chargers’ old regime walked away getting such poor value for money? You get the feeling this team was in some ways built in a similar fashion to the old Indianapolis Colts. Overly dependent on their quarterback, and when something happened to him (such as a drop off in his play) they hadn’t built the support to make a postseason challenge. Overall, 31 players earned positive values and 37 negative.

    Oh, OK, very good.

    Well, things are pretty quiet at the moment, but this place gets plenty of action once the draft hits and the season gets under way, so be sure to join in anytime, good bunch of peeps and plenty of willing discussions to take part in.

    Exactly ....... Yeah he was "durable" in that he never missed games, but shite, why should he ???? ...... He never got close enough to the action to ever get an Owieeeee of any significance, so Im not sure how that qualifies anyone as being worthy of a gig.

    By the way, I think it was more like 15 yards to 20 off his man ....... Both he and ScareCro were both allergic to contact moreso than the Flu....... Fargin Pussies !!!!

    Didn't do squat last season..... look up his stats. Barnes had one big year, but otherwise, he was strictly a situational player. We can do better.

    Yeah, he's not wrong about AJ's lack of people skills. That didn't help us retaining players, but I don't think we made the wrong decisions regarding when to dump Cro and LT.

    Couldn't agree more ........the entire LT situation was an absolute disgrace, from both camps, sounded like two 5 year olds arguing over who's turn it was to eat out of the Clag bottle next ......... Embarrassing.

    He is totally off base in regards to ScareCro though, the guy is nothing but a total jerk, he knows it as much as the next guy, but admitting it would make him look a complete wanker for obtaining him, so Ol Sexy would never go down that path because he's the type that has never made a bad decision in his life if you asked him.
