    I was excited for Dan Williams, and I threw my head back in disgust when they announced Ryan Mathews.

    We gave up way to much to get him- when we traded up I was thinking Dan Williams

    No we didn't.

    We swapped 1st rounders with Miami, and to do so, we gave up the 2nd rounder we got from Seattle for Whitehurst.

    We swapped 4th rounders with Miami, and got a 6th rounder, in exchange for Tim Dobbins.

    So, what it all boils down to is giving up Charlie Whitehurst, our 3rd string QB, to GUARANTEE getting Ryan Mathews, the 2009 NCAA leading rusher and our new franchise RB.

    we had a 2nd rounder before we traded whitehurst, so technically we didnt need to get a better one in that trade cuz we gave it away anyways

    Wait......so we have NO 2nd round, or 3rd round pick on friday???

    I couldn't follow the details of the trade when Bermann announced it. He got flustered when Denver and Philly announced their trade so quick after the Bolts picked Mathews.

    I don't like giving up the 2nd round pick at #40 :no:

    No 2nd rounder but we do have a 3rd (91st pick). I smell another trade to get us back into round 2.

    I can't say the Chargers are really that much improved over what they were at the beginning of the day yesterday. Time will tell when they strap em on and do a little hitting, then we'll all know.

    I was pissed!!!!!! Not that I dislike Mathews. With Dan Williams on the board, and with this draft being so deep at RB, I thought giving up a 1st and 2nd for him, was WAY too much. I am afraid we are going to have the career backup, all 303 lbs of Garay as our starting NT.

    We may score 40 points a game. I just hope our defense doesn't give up 41

    I was pissed too on that one, I thought it was Dan Williams. And at this point when the video is shot, we had no idea what had been given up. It could just be rationally assumed that trading from 28 to 12 that you would need to give up alot. Now knowing what we gave up it was surprisingly light

    so a defense with a patchwork Dline that didn't get in the way of going 13-3, having a full year to work together, letting young guys get experience, will suddenly give up 41 pointa a game?

    DAMN, I bet it sucks being such a pessimistic "fan" :tdown:
