    give me a back that can get 3 yards all on his own. We haven't had that in years. Keep the chains moving. We have the long distance pass game now. We need a short game. And the chargers offense would be unstoppable.:yes:

    For cryin' out loud. It's got to be either Matthews or Dwyer in one of the first two picks. Anything else would be stupid unless the weirdness strikes and they are BOTH gone.

    Screw Dwyer, Ben Tate FTW! This dude is gonna be what everyone THINKS Dwyer will be. He's physical, fast, can catch the ball outta the backfield and pass block.

    He was just on XX1090 and said he's visiting the Bolts in April. GET IT DONE AJ!

    Yeh i'd take beef over dwyer 100%!:tup: Perhaps Corona dug has a future in the Chargers' front office? He seems to know what the team needs before anyone else on here does and before the team ever comes out admitting it. Watch after kaeding shanks a field goal to win send the game to overtime(where he won't be able to help the chargers lose) this year in the playoffs they will finally have to cut him!

    I just may be the Nostradomus of the Chargers!
    I was right about Kaeding.
    I raised hell when AJ drafted Cromartie and Merriman.
    I wanted us to keep Turner over Tomlinson
    I also wanted AJ to trade up and draft Shonne Greene last year.
    I thought I lost my touch but maybe it has panned out for me?:lol:

    You never want to write off guys like Jahvid Best. He may be undersized, but so was Barry Sanders (5'9 200) and so was Chris Johnson coming out of the draft.

    If he can be a patient runner, and STAY HEALTHY in the NFL (big If's) I do see the Sanders like footspeed and quickness. Imagine if he could have stayed healthy throughout college.....probably top 10, maybe top 5 pick like Barry.

    I don't see everyone's problem with Merriman, when he's healthy dude is ridiculously good and he's a leader of the defense. I also don't think that Shonn Greene is that good, he didn't really do THAT much and even then it was only in the playoffs, which if I recall wasn't that fantastic. Pretty mediocre rookie season

    The jury is still out on Merriman. I want to see him recover and have a good year off of the juice. As for Shonn Greene... He was a rookie last year. I was high on him and wanted AJ to draft him. I guess the jury is still out on him also.
