  1. Chargers fans don’t want Brady, secretly or otherwise. And he doesn’t make sense for them if you go more than a centimeter deep from surface level.
  2. I don’t think Tyrod’s numbers can scale like that. One of the reasons his career numbers are what they are is because he has never had a season with more than 436 pass attempts. His 2015 season is also an outlier for him that skews the numbers somewhat. But, yes, Lynn would probably be happy with that, provided he also had a running game and defense strong enough to win games with it.
  3. He wants a mobile QB who doesn’t turn the ball over. It’s not a secret, he has talked openly about his belief that today’s NFL requires QBs to be mobile and about hating turnovers. He wants Tyrod, and that’s why they signed him last year. I’m sure he would prefer a better version, like Mahomes, Jackson, Watson, Wilson, Rodgers, but with none of them available to him, I think he is happy enough with Tyrod.
  4. I don't think there are as many real options as it seems. I would rule these guys out for the Chargers: Brees - has said he will either play in NO or retire Brady - still expect him to return to NE; more importantly, I really don't think he makes any sense for the Chargers Dak - IMO will not reach UFA (will re-sign or get tagged) Tannehill - IMO will not reach UFA (will re-sign or get tagged) Rivers - he and team announced he won't be back If I were the Chargers, I would also eliminate these guys: Bridgewater - JAG, not a real QBOTF IMO Dalton - JAG, not a real QBOTF IMO, would require giving up assets in a trade Winston - cannot see the Chargers parting with Rivers and signing a guy who had 50% more turnovers Newton - not a real QBOTF IMO, doesn't seem like a good culture fit, would require giving up assets in a trade Brissett - you didn't mention him, but it seems possible he will get released if Rivers or another vet QB signs with the Colts; but he is a JAG, and not a real QBOTF IMO That leaves only a few choices: Carr - doesn't really seem like a fit for what Lynn wants; if Gruden doesn't want him, not sure the Chargers should Stafford - see my earlier post Tyrod - not a real QBOTF IMO, but Lynn may have a man crush on him; on the other hand, a subpar season in season 1 in the new stadium might get Telesco and/or Lynn fired Draft a QB at #6 - possible high ceiling, possible low floor (bust) I think they will ultimately go with #4. It is the choice with the greatest upside out of all of those listed. It is also probably the safest choice in terms of Telesco/Lynn job security, since expectations for Tyrod/rookie at QB will be very low. This is not to say that my opinions reflect those of the Chargers' decision-makers. They could certainly go for one of the names in that second group that I would rule out.
  5. Doesn't seem like Telesco's style to trade away high picks for an expensive veteran. Stafford also doesn't seem like a fit for the type of QB Lynn is perceived to want. I know Stafford is more athletic than Rivers, but I don't know that anyone would characterize him as mobile. Going this route is safer than drafting a QB, but it also has a lower ceiling. Stafford is average to above average in today's NFL. There is no reason to think he will ever break into the top tier of NFL QBs.
  6. Tyrod was so good in BUF that after 3 years of starting there, and after helping them to the playoffs in that 3rd year for the first time in 19 seasons, BUF traded him to CLE for a 3rd round pick, even though Tyrod was just 28. He started 3 games there and moved to the bench. Then he became an unrestricted free agent last offseason and signed a contract to be a backup QB. IMO that recent history tells youa ll you need to know about Tyrod. He is not an NFL starter caliber QB. He is fine as a veteran backup, though he was grossly overpaid by the Chargers for a backup of his caliber. Don't disagree about Herbert, Love, Fromm. I think Mariota is undesirable. But agree that the Chargers should have kept Rivers. In retrospect, pairing Lynn with Rivers was a mistake. If they wanted Lynn, they should have convinced Rivers to support a trade sooner. But really they should have hired Arians or someone else other than Lynn when they made that hire. All it did was waste 3 years of the Chargers franchise and Rivers' career to force them to work together.
  7. I'm perfectly capable. Throughout our exchange, I have said multiple times that Rivers did not perform well when targeting Williams. I have said that Rivers made ill-advised throws to Williams when he wasn't open. I have specifically assigned blame to Rivers. You seem to want to argue my points about Williams, not Rivers. So I cited a scouting report that literally said exactly what I have said in this exchange about Williams, yet you still won't concede anything about him. So I agree to disagree and say we'll see, and your response is to say I'm not capable of rational conversation about it. Whatever, dude.
  8. They have $86M in available cap space. They can release or trade Brissett and save another $9M. They could sign Rivers for $25M, release Brissett, and still have $70M to spend to improve the roster for a Super Bowl push. I am the biggest Rivers fan in this forum, but I don't think Rivers is just a one year guy. I think he could give 2-3 solid seasons. I think it is viable for them to release Brissett and worry about their QBOTF next offseason or the year after. I don't know the Colts roster, so I don't know how much they need to spend on internal free agents, but that makes it appear like they could sign Rivers, release Brissett, and improve multiple other position groups. They were 7-9 last season but lost 6 games by 1 score. They could easily be a turnaround candidate with Rivers over Brissett, and if they use that $70M wisely and make a push, they could potentially push for a top 2 AFC seed.
  9. I specifically addressed it in the post you just quoted. To repeat the same statements point by point: The article attempts to make a case for another team to trade for him, but correctly points out that his 2021 roster bonus becomes guaranteed in a few weeks. The author makes a vague reference to offset language possibly canceling that out, but admits he doesn't know that to be true. I also don't know for sure, but I have to assume if a team trades for him, they are committed to paying him his 2020 salary and his 2021 roster bonus. If true and he doesn't perform and they release him after 2020, they will have spent $10.5M for 1 season of poor performance, and they will also have $5M in 2021 dead cap space. That undermines the case the article makes for it being a low risk investment.
  10. It is clear that you place 100% of the blame on Rivers for his 2019 poor performance when targeting Williams, and I don't. I guess we'll see how it turns out in 2020.
  11. Not a case for the Rams to trade him. The article never mentions that trading him would increase his 2020 cap hit for the Rams by $2.9M. The article does not explain why the Rams might think that is in their best interest. I don't see how it would be... not trading him preserves that $2.9M in 2020 cap space and gives them Gurley to lead their RB group. The article attempts to make a case for another team to trade for him, but correctly points out that his 2021 roster bonus becomes guaranteed in a few weeks. the author makes a vague reference to offset language possibly canceling that out, but admits he doesn't know that to be true. I also don't know for sure, but I have to assume if a team trades for him, they are committed to paying him his 2020 salary and his 2021 roster bonus.

That undermines the case the article makes for it being a low risk investment. But, again, even if I'm wrong about that, that is only helpful to the team that would notionally trade for him. It isn't helpful to the Rams. Like I said previously, it is a really bad contract for the Rams. They should not have included these triggers that guarantee future year roster bonuses. The one last year that triggered guaranteeing his 2020 salary and roster bonus is the reason the team is unable to release him this offseason. The one that triggers in a few weeks is the last one that does this, which is one reason it will be much more feasible for them to release or trade him next offseason.
  12. As I posted just a few posts up, trading Gurley would actually increase his 2020 salary cap hit for the Rams by $2.9M. They don't have a lot of cap space to work with. I can't see them doing that. Maybe next offseason, when trading or releasing him would actually save cap space.
  13. They have had a subpar pass blocking OL for more than a decade, and, more importantly, for the entirety of current GM Telesco's 7 year tenure. Why would you expect them to reverse that now?
  14. He is clearly not a NFL starting QB caliber option. He is a placeholder at best.
