Im kinda pissed, my 2nd all time favorite chargers wasnt on the list (Rodney!!)
Also a little surprised that LT has only gotten 6% of the votes. I mean i know hes still young and has many years to go, but what he has done in 5 years is simply amazing and is on record pace to becoming on of the greatest of all time
Still, at that time, he wasn't my "favorite" Chargers when I was little. Speedy Duncan was #1 in my book. I also liked Gary Garrison too, mostly because my G'parents knew him and Gary always took time to say "Hi" to me.
He's a 7 time Pro Bowler. Look at what he did for 7 of the years he was with us (seasons 2 - 8), and with the freer rules allowing DBs to "rape" the WR. Plus, there were fewer games in the season than the modern 16 games.
Just think what Alworth could have done with today's rules that make it easier for a WR, and an extra 2 games in the season.
Forrest Overin told me a story that I do not think ever got published anywhere or at least I did not hear or read about it..............It was during the Coryell era and Dan Fouts was shot with a gun in the fleshy part of the arm over some sort of dispute........I was pretty lit when he told me the story so I am sketchy on details. :icon_eek:
When I was a teenager pre-internet days living in Hemet-tucky without access to the SD paper, I used to subscribe to Chargers Football Weekly. I planned my whole week around getting that rag and come to find out FO was either the editor or one of the writers so Dude is the man.
