    I'm indifferent on it as of now and I highly doubt AJ would do it anyways. I just figured I'd throw it out there since he listed the Chargers as one of three teams he'd want to play for.

    I'd bring him in. He'd add "attitude" to a soft defense.

    I'd be against him more because of his age.

    I could care less that he's a **** talker. Who cares? As long as he backs it up it's fine by me.

    I'm just not fully sure if he can still back it up.

    I'd take porter any day. He could really help develop our young linebackers and get us some much needed sacks. Please Porter come to San Diego!!

    Too bad because there are 3 problems Joey:

    1. We don't want you
    2. We already have better and
    3. We don't need that big mouth of yours either. :no:

    Joey Porter past 2 seasons = 26.5 sacks

    Merriman, Phillips, Tucker, English and Applewhite past 2 seasons combined = 26.5 sacks


    Not saying I want him, but that's mainly because of what it would cost to get him. Don't have a problem with the trash talking, didn't stop the Jets from over preforming.

    But seriously "The gloves is off" really?

    I'm not advocating we get Porter, but great teams need guy's like Porter. He doesn't just talk it, he backs it up, and there is nothing wrong with that.

    Take the Saint's for example, their defense won them their trip into the Super Bowl during the playoffs. How many hit's did they record on Warner and Favre. How many flags for late hit's did they take, how many more should they have gotten that weren't called?

    That's the type of football I love, and I give the Saint's D all the credit in the world for getting after it. Inflict the pain, take the flag because in the end it's a gain. Both Warner and Favre were battered and bruised, believe me they knew they were in a game for day's after the fact.

    Maybe it's time the gloves to come off?

    I don't disagree with 1&3 but I don't know if Phillips or Merriman currently are (and I know English isn't) better then Porter

    I definitely disagree with 3

    Who cares how much trash he talks as long as he backs it up?

    "The gloves is off," Porter said.

    Shouldn't that be "The gloves are off," ???

    Way to go, genius. Another Harvard Grad, no doubt...

    The coach was doing the talking. Not the players.

    Porter was yacking up a storm prior to the Pats game and he had:
    0 Tackles
    0 Sacks

    He was a complete non-factor in that game after talking **** all week.

    He was yakking up a storm prior to pretty much every game he's played in and has a great career to show for it.

    One bad game doesn't change that.

    The only question is: Does he still have it at his age?

    The **** talking is irrelevant IMO

    AJ is not going to pay this loud-mouthed fool what he's going to want, period. Nor should he.

    If he wants to play for the league minimum, then I might endorse it.

    I think the **** talking is relevant and as a fan I am tired of it.

    That **** talking has really served the charges well in their playoff games.... Yeah I want more of that....

    You can't just isolate games where they sucked and directly attribute the **** talking to that.

    They (Chargers) **** talked just as much in the regular season when they were winning division titles every year.

    edit: and please don't go all B4L on me and take that statement as me saying I'm fine with division championships and nothing more.
