Smith is very busy this time of year." src="http://i1.chargers.com/assets/217/38655_282wh.jpg" alt="" width="166" height="248" /></a>This is not an article about urban legends like the Bunnyman, or a tale of horror where in a darkened room you call out Candyman three times and a murderous spirit appears behind you to end your life in some brutally graphic manner. This is not even about the latest Hollywood flick where some ordinary looking Joe with an instrument of death comes out of no where to play havoc on the standard American family in Suburbiaville USA.

    No this is about the figure that haunts NFL locker rooms every year form mid August to early September. This is about the Turk. The horrifying figure that is responsible for players to disappearing from NFL Rosters from sea to shining sea. Many of us will never know the dread that his visitations bring but many a young player has found out- the hard way.

    The month of August winds down and the Turk goes hunting:
    Lets face it, the Chargers entered the preseason as arguable the most ‘set' team from a standpoint of having it's roster set and ready to go. The competition this preseason has been for back up spots, nickel position or filling in for injured or suspended stars. There were very few starting rolls which could have been considered up for grabs. This makes the Turk's (*1) task of hunting down the players who are to be cut a little easier, but by no means an easy one.
