    Don't thank me, they were from McRugs. He just got back from a long day (work in am, then drove down to SD from LA, camp, then drove back home). He just sent out a quick note with the pics, mostly said he'd have a lot to say tomorrow, and that the Chargers really put on a nice shindig for Seau.

    As far as what happened to Oben's foot, I'm still not clear on it. Sounds like they tried to just let it heal on it's own, and when that didn't work they did surgery. It required a second surgery in the offseason, I guess because it didn't respond right.

    No word on if he had a limp either. Hopefully McRugs will do a thread tomorrow on his day at TC.

    Hopefully Oben gets better quickly, and can play Week 1.

    The UT said the same thing about no noticeable limp from Oben.

    thing is,

    this shouldn't be a damn story!

    they knew he was going to need time to recover. they should have signed someone, anyone, to spell him until he gets healthy

    No ****. If we open the season with that dude as the starter - Rivers better be ready to run his *** off or he will get clobbered. :yes:

    Trumpie -

    Take off your "I hate Leander" goggles for a minute and go rewatch the game.

    Is Jordan the answer at LT? No. But McNeill didn't block ANYONE in the running game. McN also nearly let a scrub 3rd string DE beat him on a speed rush (if it had been KGB the QB would have been splattered).

    Jordan is the best answer - and NOT nearly as bad as people say - until Oben can get healthy. McNeill looks like a one year project to me.

    Although that article did have one incorrect thing, stating that Rivers wasn't sacked. :icon_confused:

    What the hell do you expect from Bernie Wilson? He's the dumb bass that said Cro got toasted by VJ at pre-camp, and VJ was at the house. I think Bernie was at the house too. Maybe he had his runner do this story as well......

    He is worse than what people say. Leander Jordan is no where close to being a starter. I would rather take my chances with the raw rookie I saw in McNeill.

    I think it will be all academic when Oben surprises everyone and starts in Oakland.

    As sonorajim said, the only time they would get to Rivers is when he would take a 5,6, or 7 step drop and hold the ball a while.
