  1. Which trade do you think is the most ridiculous?

    Let's see how Freddie Kitchen does as your HC. There's a lot of pressure on him if he doesn't deliver a deep postseason run.

    Risner seems to be more of a tweener from what I hear. He may play inside at the pro level. Adderly is more of a traditional FS, Rapp has great intelligence to make up for his lack of ideal athleticism (sounds like 2007 Weddle), while Chauncey seems more comfortable as a nickle corner than a traditional safety.
  3. He gets in easily with a Superbowl MVP. It'll take longer given the way things are. Shame that he never got the MVP for the 2008 season. If the defense hadn't blown the Panthers/Steelers game, and Hoculli hadn't blown the whistle against the Broncos, he may have gotten it.

    I don't see it unless something comes up. They don't play the same positions.

    Perryman makes sense since he's injury prone and hasn't played a full season in the NFL yet. Phillips is interesting because he's very scheme limited in the sense that he's a weird safety/linebacker hybrid in Bradley's system (can't really play FS or SS in the traditional sense). I suspect that both are using this season as prove it deals to get richer contracts next offseason.

    Apparently it was good enough snake oil to get TT extended again. http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/26276208

    As long as he doesn't reach, I'm fine with building up the trenches. I would rather have Liuget back on a cheaper deal than Philon actually. Though given our inability to get someone like Gipson or Thomas in FA, I also wouldn't be surprised if he goes that route at the 28th pick either.

    What have the 2nd rounders netted us over the years? Should we get rid of those as well? '13 Teo, '14 Attaochu, '15 Perryman (can't stay on the field), '16 Henry (can't stay on the field), '17 Lamp (never go on the field), '18 Nwoshu (at least got on the field). Same thing with the first rounders until recently. Heck, MW looked like a bust until this season, and MG will probably not be a Charger after this season due to the under valuation of RBs. The point is you can't look at things in a vacuum like that. There's a 50 percent bust rate in the top 10 alone, and the probability goes down more and more the deeper it gets into the draft. You still want to hang on to as many draft picks as you can because it gives you more of a chance to hit on a draft pick, which is crucial since they help your team at an affordable salary cap. Trading up is a risky proposition, at least when TT does it. And it's his willingness to do it so much early in his career that annoyed me greatly. His drafts have gotten better now that he's stayed put IMO.
  9. Raiders sign Tyrell Williams

    His main problem is his inconsistency. Even though 2016 was his best year statistically, he did a much better job of running routes and using his length to high point the ball compared to previous years. With that being said, he also completely disappeared in the 2nd half of the season. Some time after the Titans game.
  10. Raiders sign Tyrell Williams

    He would have been the #3 receiver on our team and while it would have been nice to keep him, it's hard to pay that much for a #3.
  11. Chargers sign QB Tyrod Taylor

    We need a backup QB and this was the best one available. Makes perfect sense given the Lynn connection. He'll at least give us a chance in the game if Rivers ever somehow misses a game or two. Unlike Geno Smith or Cardale Jones.
  12. Chargers sign QB Tyrod Taylor

    He'll get his extension in preseason. Just like the last 2 times.

    I was referring more to LBC and his willingness to give up a 3rd to move up. I would not do that and I don't think TT should either. I understand where you're coming from and if it was a couple of late third day picks like a 6th and 7th to get a quality future LT, I would be for it as well. There's really 2 reasons why I prefer to stay or move down: 1) We have a lot of needs outside of just oline including LB, S, and DL. 2) Guys like Peter King and Albert Breer feel that this draft is deep in certain positions that we need, especially in the 2nd and third round. I would try to trade down if possible to pick up an extra 2nd and 3rd. If we need to move up, then it should be within those two rounds. Of course, this whole situation could depend on how well Lamp does. If he can solidify at least one side of the guard position (either LG or RG), we just have to worry about the other OG. Pouncey at least has a backup with Quessenberry. And a tackle isn't as important for a pocket passer like Rivers. He's like Brady and Brees in his ability to evade the outside pass rush as long as he has a pocket to step up into. It's why I feel that we can delay getting a tackle if we can improve the interior line first.

    Because Benji hasn't been released yet? It still could happen. Part of the problem is that he's the only true burner we have on the team.
  15. Into the Offseason - 2019

    Ingram and Bosa are Free Agents at the same time. They will want to extend Bosa soon though. And TT hasn't given up a pick to move up since 2015, and never anything higher than a 4th. This is the draft where you want to stay put if you're low enough in the 1st or try to trade down.
