Come to think of it, that's about what Delhomme did...only he under threw everything and Smith bailed him out.

I forgot about that. That was about as weak as Dhani Jones' air guitar celebration.

Some players have the win inside of them, some don't. You could see it in Brees clear back in his SD (and even Purdue) days, never in Culpecker. I thought SD was crazy to keep Rivers over him and still do. I never root for the Chargers, but'll always love'em. Specially now with Sproles here too. Maybe they can spare an OL or two...

And do you remember how half of those points came in garbage time when we were down 20+ points? People always seem to remember the numbers but not the context.

P.S. -1 Rep for vaguely insinuating A.B. might not have been that bad. Lack of proper revulsion for A.B. will NOT be tolerated.

That is acceptable... If you dress it on a mannequin and beat it with a baseball bat every so often. I'll give you the benefit of the doubt. Your rep stands.

After all we had a guy named Brooks and a coach who loved him!!
Carnally... It is still the only reasonable explanation I can think of that Hasbeen kept him for so long.

Bulger got screwed. He had a couple of seasons there where he was putting up elite numbers, but being on a declining Rams team ruined him. If he would have gotten in with a good coach and cast around him he could probably been a top 5 NFL QB. I wanted him to back up Brees a couple of years back. Whats that guy doing now?

He retired in the beginning of August. There were rumors that couple of teams were interested in signing him, but he wanted to start his life after football and declined those offers.

Why not? The Chargers seem to be ever generous lately in the past three years in giving away all of their effective players

That's exactly why I love'em, but'll never root for'em.
