  1. Chargers Offseason thread

    I don't know man, he's a unique talent. His arm has plenty of juice and obviously his legs are extraordinary. Lynn talked about having a mobile quarterback (RPO's ?) earlier in the season and again (and I don't know if he does or doesn't) if he liked Cardale Jones and Tyrod Taylor in Buffalo, it wouldn't be a stretch to see him liking Jackson. Not to mention, GM's might look at the success of Russel Wilson and Dak Prescott and wanna take a chance on Jackson. And he's a QB and we all know on draft day those guys get pushed up boards. I could see it, I'm not saying I'm advocating for it, but it wouldn't at all shock me either
  2. Chargers Offseason thread

    Anyone else think we could go Lamar Jackson in the 1st? He's intriguing to me. Just turned 21, so he's young, particularly in QB world. He could play that "slash" role for a year or two while Philip is still here (play some receiver/slot/return kicks). I think he's someone our front office might like (I mean, he's everything they wish Cardale was and they traded for him). He's also the electric type player that could put butts in the seats and possibly even ones that actually root for us lol

    The more I watch, the more I like Rashaan Evans. Can't wait to see how he tests at the combine. Ditto for Harrison Phillips
  4. Chargers Offseason thread

    I think if we're in the safety market, there's guys on the second day that we could get that could do as good or better job than Boston and won't have a 7 mil/year price tag. Bates, White, Watts, Harrison all could be options on day two if we decide to go that way
  5. Chargers Offseason thread

    There's no way I give Boston that kind of money, I'll take my chances in the draft or free agency again.
  6. Chargers Offseason thread

    This is what I was thinking. He has one year left, give him a 3 year extension for a total of 4 years. That sounds right to me. He's far outplayed his current contract and hasn't threatened to sit (at least not yet). I think he's earned it, they should get him taken care of
  7. Chargers Offseason thread

    What are everyone's thoughts on Casey Hayward? He's on the last year of his contract and due for a well earned extension/payday. However, he'll be 29 years old next season and we all know what that means, the dreaded 30 year old wall. What type of extension do we give him? Or is this the time to sell high and trade him?
  8. Joe Barksdale - Chronic Depression

    I hope he finds the help he needs as with anyone who battles mental illness. Luckily for him, medicine has made great strides in that area over the years. I wish him and his family all the best
  9. Chargers Offseason thread

    You basically nailed how I feel about all 3 guys. Smith needs to be kept clean to excel, Edmunds seems to shine in run and chase situations but I'm not sure about his ability to get off blocks and I wonder if his size makes him an easier target to block? Evans is just solid to me, curious to see how he tests. Sound ball player, physical tackler and seems to make the right read/play more often than not. You have to consider though that he played behind an outstanding D Line that occupied blockers and allowed him to flow to the ball untouched a lot of times. I like Jerome Baker too. Very athletic and I think his skill set translates well to the NFL (he has coverage ability). He gets compared to Ryan Shazier a lot around here (he's not as good as Shazier). He's raw, but has the tools to succeed
  10. Chargers Offseason thread

    I'm not impressed with this linebacker class at all. Edmunds looks like a wide receiver to me and I have my doubts about Smith as well. Anyone have any linebackers they like in the draft? I think Nwosu from USC looks promising but more in the mold of Reddick last year. I wanna amend this, I do like Rashaan Evans. But not at #17 overall. Maybe in a trade back scenario at the back of the 1st or top 2nd
  11. Chargers Offseason thread

    Some free agents who I think might make some sense for us Defensive Line Dontari Poe / Sheldon Richardson / Star Lotulelei Safety Lamarcus Joyner / Eric Reid / Morgan Burnett / Kenny Vaccarro Middle LB Anthony Hitchens Running Back Dion Lewis
  12. Jatavis Brown?

    History is on your side for sure, I'm not sold they're gonna pay him either. His usage rate was extremely high this year which makes you wonder if they're gonna run him into the ground and then let him go. Again though, it's pure speculation on my part, Connor was a name on their roster I thought maybe they could part with and we would have some use for.
  13. Jatavis Brown?

    I agree, that's why I figured a fourth might entice us because I don't think a 5-7 is going to net us a better player than Brown (situational sub/backup/special team player). A fourth doesn't sound unreasonable if the Steelers in fact liked Jatavis at one point, think he has starter potential but is stuck in a bad fit defensively. Or a player like Connor, who is stuck behind Bell therefore making him somewhat expendable to the Steelers. Of course this is all speculation and guesswork, but the OP asked what we thought compensation would look like, that's what I think sounded right
  14. Jatavis Brown?

    For trade compensation, I'd say a fourth rounder would sound about right. Considering it's the Steelers, it's darn near the fifth round. Maybe James Connor straight up player wise? We could use a quality back up to Gordon
  15. Team Needs?

    I don't think Wiggins is as bad as you make him out to be. Granted he's not Zach Martin by any means, but he's not total garbage either imo. I also don't think you need All-pro's up and down the line in order to move the ball. I think we could survive with Wiggins, sure we could improve his position, but it's not gonna make or break the season either. Maybe I'm too harsh on Barksdale. I know he had some nice games (Dallas comes to mind), I just think his position could also be improved and at the same time groom our future left tackle when Okung moves on (I know Okung had a good year but he's also been injury prone throughout his career)
