He sucked at the end of the year, and in the playoff game. I believe he has a slight case of Rex Grossman syndrome, which is letting rip the deep ball.
    Rivers had two bad games, KC and OAK. He didn't play as well as he did in the beginning of the season, but he didn't suck in the end of the year. I thought he played great in the playoff game, and as far as letting rip the deep ball, I'm a little confused where you got that idea from.

    I believe Cotrell did his best work in Buffalo using the same 3-4 defense that the Chargers currently utlilized. When he was in a different system with the Vikings and the Jets, he struggled greatly.

By getting rid of Marty all you lose is the actualy overseer of the two. The hiring of Turner is essentially replacing Cam, with a better version of him, as Cam is essentially Norv Jr. To deal with the departure of Wade, which I feel was the biggest offseason loss, You have Cotrell, to keep continuity on the 3-4, and Rivera, to strenghten the defense overall. I see it as an even, if not almost beneficial swap for the Chargers, who can now expect an even more potent offesne with Rivers' full development, and a defense taht should remain on par.

    Rex Grossman syndrome, letting rip the deep ball? haha sorry but that's just funny. River started to regress the moment his wide receivers started going down with injuries. Vincent Jackson was the only one who wasn't injured through the whole ordeal. It's funny since Rivers regressed at the same time that Brees did.
    Also, Rivers had a decent playoff game. He looked absolutely calm out there. If you bothered to watch the game you'll notice that his stats were horrible because his receivers had problems catching perfectly thrown passes. Rivers did make mistakes in the game though. The interception and the last minute to be exact. But give this guy a more reliable target to throw to and he'll be even deadlier.

    Denver will see a slight gain IMO, they really upgraded and Cutler is ready IMO to be a good-great QB. Anywhere really from 9-7 to 12-4, depending on injuries. I hear people say all the time this team needs a DE, but they actually don't need one as bad as they need a DT. They need DE for depth, yes, and upgrading wouldn't hurt, but if they can get a DT that can get a push from the middle, this team gets instantly better.
    Kansas City is in trouble IMO. They add little pieces here and there, and in the end they just make the team older and older. This is an average team, and can go from 6-10 to 9-7. Tons of starters over 30 on both sides of the ball, they need to start the rebuilding phase. Gonzalez should've left.
    Oakland, if it can get an offense, will be a decent team. I see 4-12 to 7-9 from them this year. A lot of guys on defense are young, but Sapp, who played like a beast last year, just how much does he have left? Maybe by the time the offense gets around, the defense will be average-mediocre again.

    I don't think that LT has to carry this team as much you seem to believe. In fact, one of the main reasons he had such a good year was because he had an improving oline and because Rivers was his QB as opposed to Brees. With Rivers there the 8-9 fronts that was in 2005 decreased greatly. With Dielman resigned and Rivers only getting better due to more reps with Vincent Jackson and Malcolm Floyd as well as our new receiver, I can see him having a much better year. Which in turn will open up more holes for LT.

    The Raiders could have easily won 4 games this year [they pretty much gift wrapped home losses to Houston and Cleveland] and almost upset the Chargers in San Diego. They are better than 2-14.

    Anyways....

    San Diego - [11-5] You don't think they will be motivated after last year? Come on....Norv Turner isn't that bad of a coach....is he?!?

    Denver - [10-6] Lots of big name acquisitions, but how will the egos mesh?

    Oakland - [6-10] Take a big step forward and the defense is developing into a dominant unit. Unfortunately the offense is still in the bottom 10 of the league.

    KC - [6-10] LJ runs enough for them to continue to be successful at Arrowhead, but they are on the way down. The rebuilding process starts in 2008.

    I didn't say he wasn't in his prime, I said he just had 410+ carries last year. You don't think accumulating nearly half of your career carries in one year will somewhat hurt a player? Who knows how he will respond to it, I didn't say it was necesarily bad, but it could be trouble. That line continues to get worse to, and when you look at LJ's YPC its good, but its getting much worse as that line gets older, and not as strong.
    Do I think 410 carries will hurt him sure but IMO not for a few more years LJ wants to be the best ever will he be no but the guy is going to bring it for a few more years. If you watched the Chiefs all year you would know that LJ made a lot of yards on his own making something out of nothing we picked up a starter at LT if we draft a RT we will be fine on the line.

    i think it will be denver with out the homerism aside....the offence is only going to get better and with bates our D should finally be as good as advertised.....we will draft a Defencive player most likely DE.....but bly, henry, graham will only help out....and I have read reports about DJ williams how he played less then 70% of the snaps...and bates said having one of the most talented lbs not stay on the feild was dumb...so i expect him to play more which should help.....i can only see us getting better...and playing for darrent will help also
