    Do the Chargers keep Turner?

    Chargers running back Michael Turner is due to become an unrestricted free agent in March. As a result of his solid performances in the 2007 playoffs, his market value likely has increased.

    So what should the Chargers do? They could use the franchise tag to keep him around for a guaranteed $6.99 million in 2008. With LaDainian Tomlinson showing signs of wearing down, it might be money well spent if after next season it appears that Turner is in his prime, and that L.T. is past his.

    Besides, Tomlinson's stardom has arguably created a monster. Much of the media ignores it, but L.T. has a tendency to apply double standards and to engage in sideline tantrums that would make guys like Randy Moss or T.O. the recipients of writers' wrath. Eventually, his ability won't justify putting up with his attitude.

    "Eventually" could come sooner than anyone in San Diego realizes. The challenge for any franchise is to part ways with a key player not after his production drops off, but right before it happens. For Tomlinson, that might be after the coming campaign.

    Usual ******* media trying to divide and rile up the fanbase, while creating a story where there isn't one over the offseason.
