Mason, Heap, McGahee.. quite a few name players. It's clear they're trying to get younger.

I've heard they may make a play for Asoumgha too. That would be scary.

Was very happy to wake up to this news this morning :D

I have an authentic white Mathews Chargers jersey on its way and should hopefully turn up this week.

I saw the Chargers play at Qualcomm last year against the Titans, one of the best experiences ever, really hope to get back next year to see another game.

Can't wait for the games to start flowing!

Unlikely, we have some great corners that are finally healthy. Plus, these cuts were to bring us down in the cap world.

Heap is a walking injury, and "clutch" is nifty, but the dude runs a 40 like I walk one....not like Mason's a walking Super Bowl ring factory anyway......hell Michael Lombardi just called them the slowest offense he's ever seen on the field in years (least the receiving corps)

You give me grief for calling them a pop-gun offense, but those WR are embarrassing, seriously.......

Well I guess NFL defenders are slower than you as Heap had 15 yards per catch last year, 30 1st downs and 5 TD's.
He is a big game player as he lead all TE's in yardage, yards per game and first downs in last year's playoffs.

Last year was the first year since his injured 2007 that Mason didn't have 1,000 yards receiving only because we had another threat in Boldin taking his yardage.

We are a run first offense so we are never going to have "big" numbers.

No way, dude. Didn't someone claim they were the best in NFL history? :P


Not that I know of.

Well sounds like McNabb's going to the Vikings for a 6th rounder this year and a conditional 6th rounder the following year depending on performance. Damn, that's hideous for what was once considered to be a borderline HOF'er :lol:

I think he will return to his status as one of the top QB's in Minny. I think his season in Washington was an aberration due to the lack of support he had there on and off the field.

I don't know how any of those number have ANY bearing on the fact that the Ravens have the slowest and most prodding WR corps in the NFL (2.2 YAC for Mason in 2010), and Todd Heap's been on the injury report for like 3 years straight now.....seriously.......but hey keep pumping out the same team that never beats the Steelers when it counts B )

Mason is a possession receiver and typically just gets us first downs. Their is a huge difference between speed and separation from defenders. Speed is meaningless if you can't get open, so on that note our numbers speak for themselves.

You are correct about one thing, we can't seem to beat the Steelers when it counts, especially in the last seconds of a game. This will change.

Wow. So does this empty the coffers for Edwards and Cromartie?

Schefter reports the Dolphins and Broncos are in very serious trade talks regarding Orton


Why? I think this trade actually damages both teams.

It makes sense. Henne didn't do much to win the starting job outright last year, Orton would definitely be an upgrade, and it's clear in Denver that the Tebow era is about to begin.

Bingo. Plus Orton had a good relationship with Marshall in Denver. This would immediately make us a better team. I do it for a 3rd, but no more.

But Henne is still learning and this undercuts his development and I think Tebow is interesting, I don't know if he the type of QB that can play a full season.

Per Schefter, Washington trades Haynesworth to NEW ENGLAND for a fifth-rounder :o

And not even next year's fifth-rounder, a 2013 fifth :P

Also the Saints agree to trade Bush to the Dolphins, pending the Dolphins getting him to restructure his deal.

This reeks of the resurrection of the wildcat in Miami.
Bush can make things happen with his legs, that make defenders look like fools. (when he's on) And most of all, he's a winner.

Not happy about this one.

Poor Clown, between having the Patriots and the Jets engaged in a Sox-Yankees type arms race, along with the Dolphins possibly adding Orton and Bush to Marshall and a good young defense, the Bills really got no chance the next couple years :lol:
