    Well I guess that those complaining about Gordon not getting enough work will get what they want. I hope he's ready.

    I feel so bad for Danny... I would love if he works into some sort of media role once he decides to hang it up. I love that dude.

    If it wasn't for bad luck, the Chargers would have no luck at all.

    Wow. I'm shocked. Just no luck at all.

    I guess it is all in for CJ Spiller. The only viable option in free agency, if he's even willing to play. Joique Bell is probably the best option, but I've heard he doesn't want to move from Michigan (born and raised there, went to college there, played 5 seasons with the Lions as well).

    As for Danny, it was a big year for him. Usually 31 year old running backs don't produce, unless your name is Frank Gore, but man was he cooking in Week 1. Unfortunate, it is a contract year for him. Think we re-sign him, but we should invest in a RB via draft or free agency next year as insurance.

    I know the Internet is full of supposed experts with all sorts of credentials, so please just take this for what it's worth. I'm married to a dual credentialed Athletic Trainer who has her doctorate in Physical Therapy. She has said forever that the Chargers have way too many non-contact injuries that are preventable with the help of a good training staff. Going years back now she has said the Bolts need to clean out their training staff.

    Did you say "she"...?

    :tdown:

    Oops....sorry...forgot and thought I was posting on PFT for a second... :p


    In all seriousness, I really have no idea how we compare to, say, the Atlanta Falcons on non-contact injuries...

    I've never known Hillman to be much of the 3rd down type back we need to replace.

    I wonder if McCluster can pick up a blitz? He's not built for it, but you never know. Whiz will know. He can certainly catch.

    Been saying that for a while. Duffman, who shows up here from time to time, is (think he's almost done with his schooling) in process of becoming an AT and has worked in a such intern-capacity for the Oregon football team, and he's been echoing this for a while. Issue is, you have to pay for good trainers... or rather, the Spanos family would have to pay for good trainers, along with buyout the contracts of the existing ones. And those two things fly in the face of the motto on the Spanos family crest: "Toujours Bon Marche" (or really, it's Greek so...
    "Pánta Fthiná").

    Not that it matters much to what you're saying, but Woodhead's injury was very much a contact injury. I don't think it was the result of bad training so much as him getting trucked by a fast, aggressive LB while his leg was planted.

    Sorry to hear that Woody is lost for the rest of the season. He brings such enthusiasm to the game, and he will be missed. Who is the next man up to assume Woodhead's role? And we are talking real world here, not just someone's dream team fantasy player or FA castoff...

    So sorry to see Woodhead go down in the game. If anybody doesn't deserve this to happen to him its Danny.

    Gordon will see a ton of work now so will see his stats begin to climb as he is playing really well right now. Don't think we will bring anybody else in for Danny as we have Williams and Farrow on the roster. A lot of power in those two backs!!
