  1. Excuse me. She is to be referred to as The Witch. Her death does not change anything she has forever been branded.
  2. This should end Benjamin’s career here... although I said the same thing many times about Clary and somehow he was always back. This will have little to no impact on the team because he can’t catch the ball anyway.
  3. QB Brock Osweiler retires

    I always thought Whitehurst was the best. 25 million for 400 pass attempts. I was wrong. Still Charlie had the best hair.
  4. Titans name Ryan Tannehill starting QB versus Chargers in Week 7

    Titans trying to screw up their draft position here. Tannehill will do great versus the Static's tired out defense.
  5. Los Angeles isn’t even in the top ten for viewing markets for one of their own teams. Rams are selling seats but also are dealing with a lot of traveling fans. I don’t believe a rebrand does much more then drive the stake in the heart of the few Charger fans left. I think I’m left with best case scenario: 1. The NFL contracts the Chargers. Spanos family loses all their money. 2. Spanos Family is forced to sell the team. New ownership isn’t bags of monkey poo. 3. Chargers move to London and become the first international team. It is my revised position that Los Angeles can financial support two football teams. It can emotionally support one football team and the Rams are leading that race with the Chargers limping behind like a one legged zombie.
  6. Have you given up on Winston?

    I can't imagine you will get many defending him. Hey maybe he can sign in New England and learn from Tom for a few years... I don't see anyone giving him a clear cut starter role, or bringing him in to bridge for a rookie. He's done, barring some major rehab somewhere. Best scenario for him is to go sit behind Russell Wilson and learn from him but I'm not even sure if he brings enough to the table in the film room to earn that spot.

    To that I would say you are overating AJ Smith's ability to draft Philip Rivers; given a draft that had Roethlisberger, Eli and Rivers in it, and underrating the impact Butler's scouting regime did in identifying UDFA Kris Dielman, and Antonio Gates. AJ Smith added talent early on, and I'm not as big of a hater on him as some but I can't ignore that the core of this teams success came from Tomlinson/Dielman/Gates. Now this all becomes a moot argument if you're giving AJ credit for 2003. AJ/Butler are pretty even with their overall contributions and it really comes down to who you credit with 2003 in any comparison between the two. AJ Smith hit big in a loaded 04 draft. Hit in 05, 06, and I will even give him 07 despite "Bust"er Davis. 08 was horrible, 09 was perhaps his biggest miss, 10 was meh, 11 we got one solid starter, 12 looked good but then went to crap but we still have Ingram on the roster so overall a win. Pretty much 50/50. not bad but not great.

    So the problem I have with this comparison is Oakland, Chicago and Buffalo haven't had the consistent franchise QB. One could argue that they still don't. Turner, Mccoy and Lynn all had a hall of fame caliber player for their entire tenure here and the best we can claim is a single AFC Championship game appearance. I'd argue that single appearance was still the result of the work put in by Scottenheimer/Butler. It's inexcusable what has been profitable for the Spanos family to put out as a product. This organization is run worse then the Bengals/Browns, we just got lucky and hit on Rivers. Trust this organization to hit again on a QB, and one of three things must be true: you weren't here for the Ryan Leaf saga, You haven't paid attention to the return on 1st round picks for the Chargers in the last decade, You believe Mike Williams has lived up to #7 overall.

    I'm not even going to lie. I miss you posting on the board.
  10. Rams Forum Welcome & Introduce Yourself

    Who is your favorite Rams player? Past or Present?: SDSU Alumni Marshall FaulkWhat do you do?: Currently back in college retraining for a career in computer cyber security after retiring from law enforcement. What other teams are you a fan of?: Chargers, Aztecs, Ducks. Do you play sports? If you've hung up the cleats, inform us of your glory days when you used to be able to throw a pigskin a quarter-mile.: I played high school ball as a tight end, and a Hybrid corner/linebacker. We weren’t sophisticated enough to have opponents they always had a wide receiver on that side so I’d move inside a lot. Who is your dream girl? (those that are married, go ahead and say your wife! That way she doesn't beat you senseless when she browses through you history): This has changed so many times over the years. My first celebrity crush was probably Denise Richards though. What do you like to eat?: I’m a recovering carnivore trying to transition to being an omnivore. I struggle getting enough vegetables in my diet and generally hate them though. What other hobbies do you have?: I train Jiu Jitsu under Royce Gracie, I’m also really good at doing laundry. Why did you choose your username?: I limited myself to things that could be shortened to BS. Name one really cool event in your life.: I’m going to say the first time I ever went to the Aria Buffet. It was legendary. There was crab legs, lobster claws, prime rib, steak. I could have died happy that day.

    Anyone else think Lynn has lost the locker room? Coming out flat the last two weeks like we have is inexcusable.
  12. SNF - Pit @ L.A.

    Hopefully to embarrass Spanos on prime time. It should be obvious there is zero home field advantage. This franchise is done. They moved to Los Angeles assuming they’d be welcomed and no one gives a crap about them. The stadium situation sucks. The few fans from San Diego are getting sick of supporting a team that puts this steaming pile of monkey poo out on the field. To be completely honest the banners being flown by the spurned San Diego fans are the most support this team is getting. Spanos is a blight on the NFL and ownership needs to step in and remove him. He’s a turd.
  13. SNF - Pit @ L.A.

    Have a good night guys, I’ve got better things to do with my time then watch this excuse for a professional team get beat up on.
  14. SNF - Pit @ L.A.

    Different team. This looks like a team that has already quit. Outside one punt return, we really haven’t done anything in three weeks. Came out flat versus a winless desperate division rival. There’s no excuse for it. Our owner is a loser and it’s infected the whole franchise.
  15. SNF - Pit @ L.A.

    No you’re absolutely right too. Tevi should have had some competition. The lack of development or impact from Feeney/Lamp has killed us. I don’t hold the LT situation against them, no way to predict an embolism and losing your starter before the season even starts. Regardless though with the way this team has come out the last two weeks I don’t believe Lynn is ever going to be successful in this league.
