    They probably overpaid for a below average LT.

    It's time San Diego faces facts and realizes their OL is garbage. LT goes from washed up to NFL super star by changing cities? Seriously, your OL sucks.
    **** her in da *****!

          Except that both our backs are doing better than Lt did last year. Really our main concern with them is the fumbling issue.

          So in summary, it's easier to get rid of a runningback than redo the whole line. The running game certainly isn't the problem like it was last year. Special teams and turnovers are.

            And neither of them are doing better than LT is doing this year. Now, you could say the difference is the offensive line....... and that would be the point in the first place.

              LT is pretty obviously a lot more motivated and/or healthy in NY this year as well.

                SD is also passing it a lot more than the Jets, mostly because we're behind so often in our losses. However, to clarify the point, it wasn't entirely the oline's fault last year that LT had problems. He had lost a step and needed a oline like the Jets to do better. Most specifically there were holes that he could have run through last year, but his speed was no longer there to take advantage of them.

                When our special team isn't killing us, the running game has been there and both RBs have done well behind a so called medicore line. Thus, my point is that the oline isn't garbage like descendency said. It's actually a decent line.

                  SD's line isn't mediocre at all. Watch them play, they're actually pretty damn good.

                  Im not ready to call them elite, but they are one notch below that, and that's without McNeil.

                    lol what a couple of hater comments. Seriously what's the thought process here?

                    Hey we resigned McNeill, this is great news. The O-line has been performing well and gets even better now.

                        Maybe they were elite in 2006, at least the left side, but not close to being that today. They're above average. McNeill needs to be a better run blocker ala Dombroski. Hardwick is probably the weak link, which is why I hope we get a center in next year's draft. Pressure up the middle can take any elite quarterback down, and Rivers is no exception unfortunately.

                        That being said, they're more than adequate, and get way too much grief because of what happened with LT last year.

                          LOLWUT?

                          I'd give San Diego three years of first round picks if they switched O-lines with my Bears.

                            I wouldn't go so far as to say that Marcus McNeil sucks, but he has definitely regressed every season he's been a pro.

                              His 2009 season was better than his 2008 and 2007 season. But he still hasn't captured that magic that he exhibited in 2006 as a rookie in both pass protection and in particular run blocking.
