    1. Eric Weddle needs to be shipped to jacksonville, for picks in this upcoming draft

    2. The rams need to acquire Darren sproles so we get his round worth

    3. Vincent jackson doesnt want to be a charger and many teams could use an upgrade, he will be dealt.

    4. the chargers need to acquire linebacker depth, larry english has not lived up to his hype, tucker and applewhite are special teamers, not many starters that are young,

    5. The chargers need a true blocking tightend, jacob hester has not offered protection or the ability to catch and make plays

    6. o-line depth needs to be added at RT, C,

    7. UDFA's will be the key to we would be lucky extremely to sign Mark herzlich MLB , Pat Delvin qb, Derrick locker Rb,... all could benefit the team

    other needs Te, Wr, Cb

    1. Weddle is a free agent, so he can't be traded for picks (see #7)

    2. Sproles is a free agent, so we won't get anything for him (see #7)

    3. VJ has said over and over again that he wants to be a Chargers. Not sure where you saw that he doesn't want to be here

    4. Agree, but that can be done with free agent signings (May be what you meant by "acquire")

    5. You talk about needing a tightend and Jacob Hester in the same sentence? Hester isn't a TE. Did you mean that we need a Full back?

    6. agree

    7. The CBA will be interesting and what is determined for the number of years before someone is a free agent, but I don't see the players (nor should they) agreeing to anything more than 4 years (Going back to the way it was before the owners opted out),so there will be a ton of available free agents, including most of our players that we needlessly put a RFA tender on, that will not be upheld.

    wtf with 'depth' at C and RT? It's there. M-cow: good depth. D-ski: good depth.

    Maybe y'all mean we need starters at those positions?

    Ain't going to happen this year through FA and neither is THAT big a deal.
    That said, Hardwick is looking just as average as Clary (and by 'average' I mean 'average', not 'bad'), so I agree that those are two areas on the OL to look at. Let's go further:
    LT: How much longer you think MM is going to last?
    LG: Not sure why Dielman has been inconsistent, but if he doesn't get past it, put this up there as a priority.
    RG: Vasquez or Green? Obama or yellow dog Republican? (save the yellow dog dem **** and roll with it, history majors).

    Point being, our OL probs are about to come due and they extend beyond 2 positions. To say nothing of obtaining a TE that can block...
    But we're good for this year, and AJ sure as hell didn't focus on drafting OL, and won't be looking at starters via FA....
