A Look at Past Chargers' Drafts

38

A detailed look at the past decade in Chargers' drafts. Has there just been a steady decline since the early years or are they starting to improve?

Five things to keep in mind while watching preseason games

+

by Mike Lombardi. This is really one of the areas where Lombardi knows his stuff as a former NFL front office guy. (my 3 point summary of his 5 point article) 1. Coaches should control the roster through 50. Spots 51-63 should be under the control of the front office. 2. the practice squad should really be for the future, not really for day to day practice (although they will need to help out there every week) 3. I like what he has to say about backup QBs

It's complicated: How to get to the final 53-man roster

12

Michael Lombardi, NFL.com Great article from an experienced front office guy. Interesting things to keep in mind, from the article: - [E]ntering Week 3 of the preseason, teams have essentially a core of 40 players making up the offense and defense who are secure with their starting and backup positions. All that is left is the final 13 spots, along with formulating the practice squad. - Teams don't want to keep a veteran who will not dress on the opening day roster [that is, a vet who won't make the 45 man active roster on game day] - The last few spots must be flexible. Ron Wolf, when he was the general manager of the Packers, always had an agreement with coach Mike Holmgren that the 51st to 53rd players could become expendable if he saw someone on the waiver wire that was better. - The Rams, with the first claiming order at the final cut, can add a few players who can significantly improve their roster. (Expect them to make many moves, including adding some receivers) [this will affect our ability to get someone like Williams, Ajirotutu, or Goodman to our practice squad if they don't make the 53 man]

Ex-Bear Vasher headed to San Diego

Former Pro Bowl cornerback Nathan Vasher is close to signing a contract with the San Diego Chargers, according to a source close to the player... In San Diego, Vasher will be able to reunite with former Bears defensive coordinator Ron Rivera. He went to the Pro Bowl in 2005 after his second season with the Bears playing under Rivera.

SDSU’s Wallace, Sandford make their case at pro day

6

Two Aztecs, wide receiver Roberto Wallace and safety Nick Sandford, made a case for themselves on Friday with solid workouts. Wallace (6-foot-3 7/8, 223 pounds ) ran a 4.53 (against wind) and 4.41 seconds (with wind) in the 40-yard dash, had a 36 1/2-inch vertical, 10-foot-3 broad jump, 4.12 short shuttle, 6.80 three-cone drill, and did 19 bench presses at 225 pounds. Wallace worked out after the pro day, as well, and displayed great athleticism but didn’t show very good hands in catching. Osgood Part Deux??

2010 Class of Unrestricted Free Agents

+

All 235 Unrestricted Free Agents. They will be available for signing on March 5th. These all fall under the restrictions of the final 8 plan the Chargers are subject to, since all their contracts expired. Guys like Joey Porter, who were (will be) waived/cut don't, even though they are also unrestricted free agents.

"I would beat Shawne’s head in right now," said Ochocinco yesterday, asked about his feud with the Chargers linebacker. "This is not in fun. This is not in fun. It’s personal, you know? It is what it is. I think he might be one of the only people I don’t really get along with. I wanna fight. I’m not sure how to get the fight on with him without him suing me.

SDUT - Ochocinco calls out Merriman I can't tell if this is serious or not... I suspect it is a bit like the pre-fight posturing that goes on in boxing. I guess we'll find out on Sunday.

Downtown S.D. site set for stadium site

14

The city of San Diego’s downtown redevelopment agency is poised to hire a New York consultant for $160,000 to study how to pay for a downtown football stadium. The hiring of sports finance consultant Mitchell Ziets and Evolution Media Capital LLC is a sign San Diego is moving quickly three weeks after a rare private meeting between Mayor Jerry Sanders and Chargers president Dean Spanos to discuss the team’s desire for a new stadium.

Chargers, S.D. discussing downtown stadium

49

Outside of staying at the Q, I think the downtown site makes the most sense. Sounds like there is some momentum here. Escondido has broken off talks because they see Downtown as a more likely destination. The mayor sounds optimistic and they are getting creative on the financing front. Let's get this thing done!
