    next years draft is really deep in RBs,

    ringer, greene, moreno, coffee, wells, and 6 other backs are ready to make an impact their rookie year. yah you wouldnt have to draft a 3 year project of a running back, that would be silly...

    How does any of this tell me how trading LT gets us a ring?

    I'm not interested in getting LT a ring, I'm interested in getting the Chagers a ring.

    When you have Steve Young waiting in the wings it's one thing, when there is NO heir apparent, let alone even a solid replacement that's different.

    A ring without LT wouldn't mean as much to me as a ring with him. At least not in the near future. Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't be all pissed off about it - I'd be ecstatic! But there would always be a part of me that was sad and a little unsatisfied that LT wasn't a part of it. Especially since right now, I still believe he has more to offer than any potential replacement ever could. But that's just me :icon_shrug:

    I get being a fan of the team and not a fan of the players in the uni's but I also don't see them as mutually exclusive. So no, I wouldn't trade LT now for a guarantees championship b/c I believe we can earn one with him, and without a guarantee.

    First off, let me say that I feel we've seen our last game with LT in a Charger uni. Sad, but it's what I feel. He'll either retire, be traded, or ask for a trade. If he's traded, don't expect more than a 2nd. Not every GM is as dumb as Matt Millen. :no:

    Would I trade him if it GUARRANTEED a SB? Of course - and any other player on the team. This is all hypothetical, as RTL said.

    Last but not least - Steve Young doesn't make a pimple on Joe Montana's ***. He THINKS he's better than Montana. BS. He's a Curious George-looking phuckstick. :tdown:

    I'm afraid this will happen... but hoping it does not.... just being honest :icon_shrug:

    The writing appears to be on the wall tho... :icon_sad:

    :icon_rofl: Accurate! I should have said he was capable of taking over the reigns in SF, not that he was equal to or better than Montana :D Still, we don't have anyone here who is capable of taking over the reigns from LT imo. Not yet anyway.

    Conc, I'm curious...under your avatar it says, "no hair until we win a Lombardi."

    Just for the sake of discussion the Chargers don't win a Lombardi until 2016....what do you expect your hair to look like when you grow it back?

    Could you be disappointed, or are you confident those locks will be like those of your youth? :D

    I understand it's a business and for the most part I'm ok with it (we cheer for laundry)

    Believe me, if LT is traded then I won't care what he does as a player, my loyalty is 100% with the Chargers, I'm not like one of those Breesians (remember them?)

    But (I know it's a hypothetical question) but it sound to me like it says "LT, where throwing you off the boat so we can go faster (to win a SB)" and that's why I answer no

    If he's traded so be it and let's see which RB we get, but it would be a sad day, LT should retire a Charger
