*** Official 2019 Chargers Thread ****

Recommended Posts

What's funny is they embarrassed themselves so many times before that EVERYONE watching said to themselves : how will they lose this one? Ball on the one plenty of time 4 downs ....what's going to propel them to this loss?

The $$$$15+million dollar man took it into his own hands and not once but twice fumbled away a sure victory in pure Charger fashion. No one on that roster could do it better. Gordon made sure he will be forever known as the 2 fumbles no yards guy that held out for more money that he will never see. I would like to say I was surprised when it happened, but really I was not.  I thought to myself: yep. Of course.

I love how it's almost impossible to distinguish Chargers fans from Charger haters. This organization has a way of ruining a person's psyche.

Sure, and if Ron Mix, Lance Alworth, and LaDainian Tomlinson were all playing at the top of their games, we'd be happy to have them suit up also. You fought pretty hard to make this very obvious point.

We got off track and I'm not fighting, you might be. 

I'm not sure I understand the connection with guys retired and from previous eras but if it makes sense to you all the better.  

-I thought I read someone wanting to play whatever is sitting behind Rivers and I couldn't even name the back up QBs in Los Angeles. First of all, I don' think Rivers will be sat down no matter what the Chargers have in terms of wins and losses. 

-I understand Mondays after tough losses, fans get frustrated, easy to point it at non-fans of the team but I think most NFL fans think Los Angeles was a lot closer to a playoff team than a potential changing of the guard or Draft 2020 by Week 8 for the Chargers. 

The other team in Los Angeles made several moves last week, the Patriots are rumored and have been involved in moves, we're not hearing any of that from a team that had big expectations.

Let's imagine that everything MOP pre-supposes occurs. Rivers continues to perform at a Hall of Fame level for two to three more years after this one. Management somehow is able to fix glaring weaknesses with the offensive line (and maybe the interior defensive line) while keeping every other unit more or less intact. For arguments sake, let's say they somehow correct their tendency of getting crippled by extensive and long-term injuries across the board.

Then what to do this year? Why risk Rivers' terribly valuable future over what now have to be considered meaningless games?

Remember, it was only two years ago that the Chargers started off 3-6, only to win six of their next seven, miss the playoffs, and lose out on possibly drafting Denzel Ward, Quenton Nelson, Mike McGlinchey, Minkah Fitzpatrick, or Da'Ron Payne. They ended up lucking out that Derwin James was still on the board, but he shouldn't have been. I'm not encouraging a tank job, but when the best possible outcome of continuing to start Rivers is to hopefully get hot and just miss the playoffs, I struggle to see the upside of not seeing what's behind him on the depth chart.

Edit to add: I'm not sure this squad is talented enough to start 3-6.

They definitely need to be planning on spending speculative 2nd and/or 3rd round picks on a QB of the future to see if they can luck out with a Russell Wilson, Jimmy Garappolo, etc. There are no guarantees you become that successful with those, but the guys they have behind Rivers now probably aren't going to cut it.

As always, they need to address the lines, and their training staff.

@Ministry of Pain - they've been playing the "rebuild the OL quickly" game for years now, with average to bad results. They need to commit some major draft capital in improving the line, assuming they have talent scouts who can actually assess who is worth drafting.

Understood Gr00vus and I agree on them finding a QB of the future. I just feel like there is still some "right now" left and maybe some Chargers fans feel like it's even more reason to ship him to a team that is pretty good but needs a QB to take them over the top. Not many but the Bears seem like a team that could use a QB upgrade desperately. 

You're right about OL, Miami did that a few times under Marino with mixed results, it's never worked under anyone that came after him. We were looking solid when Jake Long was our LT but his career was short and even when he was a Pro-Bowl level player there were detractors.

I read an article before the season that said the Chargers had the most talented roster in the league from 1 to 53. I highly doubt that that was ever the case, but even then, it failed to take into account the player 40 on down all played offensive line and defensive tackle, many of whom were tabbed to be starters. Most Chargers' fans realized they were unlikely to avoid the injury bug like last year and that last year's team won an inordinate number of close games (just the opposite of what Charger teams normally do), and that this team had GLARING weaknesses. Don't believe me? Check out this thread.

You're delusional if you think that this current team is the equivalent of last year's Super Bowl competitors.

Is it time to see what Taylor can bring to this offense

Taylor is a known quantity. He is a bottom caliber starter/top caliber backup. He is not the long term answer, and, frankly, isn't a good short term answer, either, as a starter. So IMO the answer is no.

4 hours ago, Despyzer said:

or see if Stick has any real potential

This is the answer if the Chargers reach the point - now or later this season - that they are ready to push Rivers into retirement even if he doesn't want to go. I say it is the answer, because I fully expect Stick would be a complete flop, and the team could end up with the #1 pick in next year's draft by losing out.

But I sincerely hope the team does not want to push Rivers out. I think Rivers expects to sign a 3 year deal after the season, planning to play at least 2 seasons in the new stadium. He is easily one of the top 5 Chargers of all time and IMO he will be a HOFer. I would prefer that they give him that new deal and ride him until he is done.

I did not like either the Tyrod signing or drafting Stick exactly because I do not see either of them as the answer. Tyrod is okay as the backup, but not at his contract price. They quite obviously needed to spend that cap room elsewhere

3 hours ago, Despyzer said:

the Chargers need to plan for a post-Rivers world or end up mired in the Mark Malone/Babe Laufenberg/Mark Vlasic/Jim McMahon/Bllie Joe Tolliver/John Friesz era all over again.

I think this is the most likely outcome whether or not they play Tyrod or Stick this season. It is exceedingly rare for a quality NFL starting QB to end up in free agency, so they will likely have to find their next quality starter in the draft. But the draft is a crapshoot. The hit rate is pretty poor. Even with the #1 pick, the hit rate is probably 50% at best.

Which is why I think they should ride Rivers as long as he wants to play.

3 hours ago, Ministry of Pain said:

If I were the GM tomorrow, I likely wouldn't trade Rivers although i might call Chicago just to tease them and see what I could get. 

-I would rebuild the OL quickly

Right, because it is just that easy? Rivers has been playing behind bottom tier OLs for more than a decade.

Rivers is going nowhere. He has a no trade clause and has a huge family he didn't even move from San Diego area when the team relocated. IMO he will never play for any franchise other than the Chargers

We've seen Tyrod Taylor before, but not in this offense. We've seen him lead outmatched Bills teams to two winning season (including a playoff birth) and a seven-win season. We also saw him flop with the Browns when no one could have been successful. But we agree on a couple things regarding Tyrod - he's likely not the long-term answer, and his contract eats up way too much space.

I'm not ready to say Stick is going to suck when there are guys like Tom Brady and Gardner Minshew out there. Let's recall that the only QB who has ever led this franchise to a Super Bowl game was drafted in the 6th round. Is Stick likely to look more like Luke Falk than Minshew? Oh yeah! Why not give him a ride though? What's the harm in a lost season?

I think you come at discussions much the same way you clipped my quote. I pointed out exactly why that columnist was just as delusional as you, but if you prefer uninformed or ignorant, I'm willing to comply.

Just to set the record straight though. You do honestly believe that the Chargers are in equivalent circumstances this year as the Rams and Patriots?

Someone stepped on a trigger that lead to the holly roller to the great fumble in tom town and now to the 2 fumble no yard rb carry that cost a sad man a few million a year. Not to mention any chance Rivers had to be viewed as something more than a choker in crunch time. I keep trying to tell myself it's LA's problem now. It's still hard. Because Rivers is still there I'd like them to win. When he leaves...It's over. For me at least.

I understand where you're coming from. At the skill/sexy positions they do have talent. But both interior lines suck and have sucked for a long time. Plus the continuous injury problems for years. Those two things are stuff that non-fans probably don't fully get, so I understand how it's surprising when the Chargers struggle for non-fans. For fans, it's very predictable. Every year we have these threads and the Charger fans beg for help on the lines. Every year since Jamal Williams left we have problems there that inevitably limit the team's success.

Yes, that is the point of my post. My friends who root for other teams think I'm being needlessly pessimistic. I tell them with the Chargers' history, I have no other option. That's why I said "This organization has a way of ruining a person's psyche."

So this unnamed guy wanders into a thread and wants to argue a point that no one made. When he gets called out on it, he makes statements that strain credibility and keeps trying to shift his argument to something he thinks he can defend until he's defending the most obvious point ever made. He makes comments like "If I was the GM, I'd rebuild the offensive line" as if no one's ever thought of that before and was as simple to execute as it was for him to state it. Seeing he can't simply leave a conversation without having the final word, he keeps making ridiculous comments that fail to make much of a point. In desperation, he makes a claim so ridiculous that even he can't defend it, so instead he clips responses so he can argues against that and tries to make the conversation about the other person instead of the stupid things he said.

Use any adjective you think is appropriate, but at this point I'd try out "embarrassing."

There is no arguing with you...it's not even a debate. You just want someone to help you re-charge your batteries. 

Sorry Desp,  I seem to remember you in a positive light, I've been away for a while and maybe things are a lot different. I wish you would focus more on Xs and Os with me but you have been vocal that you want to bench Rivers at this point and anyone who thinks otherwise is delusional and ignorant to use your words and terminology. 

I've been a lot nicer than most, haven't called you a single name or name called/classified any of your posts with derogatory terms like you have done repeatedly. 

I would have enjoyed just reading your insight but that was not to be today. It became a whipped up argument that was one-sided on your end. If you need the last word, take it. I let it go but you can't get my name out of your mouth or hands at the moment, maybe in a week or two maybe we can re-visit. 

JWB and I argue a lot but we usually know when to hit the brakes. I'm not mad, wish you weren't either but we're not making anything positive in these posts so maybe we should stop. 

I was at the "Epic in Miami" at the Orange Bowl, you should show some respect for your elders 😉

See? This is the thing. I never said we have to bench Rivers and that anyone thinking differently was delusional or ignorant. What I actually said is that as much as we hate to even think about it, it's essential to plot it. There doesn't seem to be anything to be gained this season, so why not now? Seeing you don't seem to be able to counter that, you invent an argument that never existed. You did it from the very start, and you continue to do it now, just as you have done so throughout. How can we debate anything meaningful when you confess to not even knowing the backups?

I"m not mad either. It's more like I'm perplexed why anyone who has so little to say continues to talk. This is the fourth time you've said goodbye, and yet you keep returning. I imagine this time will be no different, "chief." You don't need to worry about me though. I spend so little time on this site that if it wasn't football season, you'd probably go months without seeing my name.

Edit to add: I do agree that we've probably muddied up this thread enough. If you wish to continue (because how could you resist?), please message me directly or post on my profile.

Agree on both points. I think some of the shine has worn off of Telesco as well.

This seems like a bit of an overstatement IMO.

Among QBs with at least 100 dropbacks, PFF grades him out at #9 for the season to date (though to be fair, Brees is under that threshold and has played better). This is despite the fact that Rivers has the 2nd highest number of dropbacks under pressure in the league. His receivers have dropped 17 passes, including a few TDs and first downs, and his kickers have missed multiple potentially game-altering FGs. His OL is terrible and he has played most of the season without key players including at times LT Okung and C Pouncey - their 2 best OL, TE1 Henry and even TE2 Green, original WR3 and WR4 Benjamin and Inman, and original RB2/3 Jackson. The offensive playcalling has been bad, and the coaching staff forced Gordon into snaps when Ekeler had been dominating.

I think Rivers would tell you he should be playing better, but I think he has played reasonably well under the circumstances.

No, but I recogize that among this team's many problems, Rivers is not one of them. Just off the top of my head, these are all bigger problems this season:

  1. Ownership
  2. Injuries
  3. Pass protection
  4. Run blocking
  5. Offensive playcalling
  6. Dropped passes
  7. Field goal kicking
  8. Interior DL play
  9. Head coach
  10. Front office/Telesco decision-making this past offseason
  11. Defensive playcalling
  12. Gordon's holdout and the handling of his return

I get your point. I really do. It's not all on phil. It really can't be given his body of work. Sure players get old and start the decline but he has had no chance. none. That o-line is beyond bad and given no time what can you do? He's not mahomes but who is? Given time you will see what is possible with rivers. I get the fact that that ship has sailed tho. Shame really. He does deserve better. Okung may be back from the dead fwiw.

Sure, and I can recall at least 4 dropped TD passes, and one of the interceptions was batted up at the line. Just off the top of my head, that would drastically improve that ratio.

Don't worry, it probably will not be much longer that Chargers fans will have him and his garbage play. That is definitely something to look forward to with optimism! :sarcasm:

No, but I recogize that among this team's many problems, Rivers is not one of them. Just off the top of my head, these are all bigger problems this season:

  1. Ownership
  2. Injuries
  3. Pass protection
  4. Run blocking
  5. Offensive playcalling
  6. Dropped passes
  7. Field goal kicking
  8. Interior DL play
  9. Head coach
  10. Front office/Telesco decision-making this past offseason
  11. Defensive playcalling
  12. Gordon's holdout and the handling of his return

So where do you slot him in on my list?

Chargers fans after a win. That dude who said we were just bummed out because it was a Monday after a loss has no clue.

Ingram's kind of a big deal, isn't he?

It'd be nice to get James back and see what this defense can do with nearly the full complement.

Still too much settling for field goals when in the red zone, but at least they didn't turn it over.

Good game but GB rolled over and took it. This game was no harbinger of what's to come . All it showed is that GB took the day off for some reason.

He should be. He is the 2nd highest paid player on the team and the 16th highest paid player in the NFL. Von Miller is the only non-QB paid more than Ingram. While I'm happy with his production yesterday, he is not returning value on that contract. I think there is a high likelihood that they release him this offseason for that reason.

I saw a funny joke on another site. Maybe the Chargers should hire Ken Whisenhunt back this week so they can fire him again...

The Athletic's Vincent Bonsignore reports the Chargers "would listen" if the NFL approached them about relocating to London.

According to Bonsignore, the possibility "has been broached among league personnel" and owners are "concerned enough about the Chargers’ situation in L.A. that they would provide the necessary support for a relocation to London if the Chargers pursue it." Tottenham Hotspur Stadium opened earlier this year with the NFL in mind and hosted two of the four London games this season after the across-the-pond series concluded this past Sunday. It seats over 62,000, and the Chargers are currently playing in a tiny soccer stadium is Carson, Cali. that seats a mere 27,000 where the Chargers are essentially the road team every week as it gets flooded with opposing fans. The Chargers are slated to join the Rams in their new $4.5 billion venue, but L.A. has not embraced the Bolts as it has the Rams. Moving to London would make a whole heck of a lot of sense, as the fans over there have totally embraced the NFL. It would likely require the Chargers switching divisions.
