    Practice resumes

    The Chargers resumed practice today.

    I really can't say enough about how good Vincent Jackson has looked the past few weeks. If 2008 was his breakout year, I can't see any reason why this isn't a jump-off year, where he makes a push to be considered one of the league's best receivers.

    Even in shorts and with Shawne Merriman on the sideline, the increased emphasis on defensive pressure really shows a lot of plays.

    I still perceive vulnerability in the middle of the defense, but there is time. Let's wait at least until the team is in pads and perhaps until after a couple preseason games before we sound that alarm.

    It is clear that fifth-round draft pick Kevin Ellison is a player. He appears healthy, is in the right spot most of the time and is similar to Eric Weddle in that he seems to know how to find the ball. Philip Rivers has been particularly complimentary of Ellison.

    The players met with new NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith this afternoon.

    Veterans practice tomorrow and Thursday before taking their summer hiatus. Rookies still have four practices next week.

    Here's to hoping that Ellison fills our need for an upgrade over Hart. :icon_toast:

    Hey Trumpy - have you contacted Ellison's GF to come to the 'gaters yet? :icon_rofl:

    Let's just take the short cut here, and introduce Hart's girlfriend to Ellison, shall we? :tup:
