Don't thank me, they were from McRugs. He just got back from a long day (work in am, then drove down to SD from LA, camp, then drove back home). He just sent out a quick note with the pics, mostly said he'd have a lot to say tomorrow, and that the Chargers really put on a nice shindig for Seau.

As far as what happened to Oben's foot, I'm still not clear on it. Sounds like they tried to just let it heal on it's own, and when that didn't work they did surgery. It required a second surgery in the offseason, I guess because it didn't respond right.

No word on if he had a limp either. Hopefully McRugs will do a thread tomorrow on his day at TC.

Thank christ.

Leander Jordan will be the death of our QB's.
No shit. If we open the season with that dude as the starter - Rivers better be ready to run his ass off or he will get clobbered. :yes:

Trumpie -

Take off your "I hate Leander" goggles for a minute and go rewatch the game.

Just watched Jordan in the GB game agan. He had a better game than I thought. I just watched 1st half offense- Jordan only. He blocked for 22 pass plays (incl penalty no plays) and was OK to pretty good on all except about 6 where he was totally dominant. On the sack, LJ got a hand on KGB but was beaten outside and could only drive him half-wide. Meanwhile, PR took a 6-7 step drop while trying to sell a fake handoff and backed into the sack. Most plays the ball was long gone by the time KGB got there.
Don't take my word for it, watch it again. Slo-mo anything you're not sure of and iso on LJ, no cheating and assuming stuff.
Is Jordan the answer at LT? No. But McNeill didn't block ANYONE in the running game. McN also nearly let a scrub 3rd string DE beat him on a speed rush (if it had been KGB the QB would have been splattered).

Jordan is the best answer - and NOT nearly as bad as people say - until Oben can get healthy. McNeill looks like a one year project to me.

Although that article did have one incorrect thing, stating that Rivers wasn't sacked. :icon_confused:
What the hell do you expect from Bernie Wilson? He's the dumb bass that said Cro got toasted by VJ at pre-camp, and VJ was at the house. I think Bernie was at the house too. Maybe he had his runner do this story as well......

He is worse than what people say. Leander Jordan is no where close to being a starter. I would rather take my chances with the raw rookie I saw in McNeill.

I think it will be all academic when Oben surprises everyone and starts in Oakland.

Man, the speed at which Rivers releases the ball and the fact that the Chargers use a lot of 3-5 step drops, I think opposing teams would have a tuff time getting to our QB (unless they blow up the middle.)
As sonorajim said, the only time they would get to Rivers is when he would take a 5,6, or 7 step drop and hold the ball a while.
