    LT!!!!!!

    Im kinda pissed, my 2nd all time favorite chargers wasnt on the list (Rodney!!)

    Also a little surprised that LT has only gotten 6% of the votes. I mean i know hes still young and has many years to go, but what he has done in 5 years is simply amazing and is on record pace to becoming on of the greatest of all time

    Gotta go with Fouts, but put this poll in 10 years down the road with LT's projected accomplishments, and I believe the resultss'll be different.:)

    In person, as a kid.

    Still, at that time, he wasn't my "favorite" Chargers when I was little. Speedy Duncan was #1 in my book. I also liked Gary Garrison too, mostly because my G'parents knew him and Gary always took time to say "Hi" to me.

    I prolly woulda went with that had I seen him play more. I was overseas quite a bit durin the Alworth years, and back then AFN and AFRTS sucked the big one.

    In the fall of '70, we gotta 3 week old Chargers-Browns game...Hadl threw a long bombta Alworth for a TD. this game was broadcast on AFRTS, onna Sunday. For the next 3 Sundays we saw the same game!!

    So I could literally count on hand the number of times I actually saw Alworth play. :icon_eek: :no: :icon_sad: :icon_shrug: :icon_huh:

    He's a 7 time Pro Bowler. Look at what he did for 7 of the years he was with us (seasons 2 - 8), and with the freer rules allowing DBs to "rape" the WR. Plus, there were fewer games in the season than the modern 16 games.

    Just think what Alworth could have done with today's rules that make it easier for a WR, and an extra 2 games in the season.

    Look at what Mix did. I think TWO holding calls in TWELVE years - and that was back when OL had to keep their arms inside their bodies.

    First AFL player in the Hall of Fame.

    My bad. Oh well, Mix is still a stud OT from his era, and worthy of being mentioned on that list.

    Forrest Overin told me a story that I do not think ever got published anywhere or at least I did not hear or read about it..............It was during the Coryell era and Dan Fouts was shot with a gun in the fleshy part of the arm over some sort of dispute........I was pretty lit when he told me the story so I am sketchy on details. :icon_eek:

    Ditto.

    That fish wrap was a lifeline for me as well.

    I always had one in the bathroom to read while taking my ceremonial dumps.

    I'm not old enough to have seen Lance play so I went with Foust. although I think for most Winslow ranks higher on an all time TE list than Foust in a QB list
