Maybe I wasn't paying close enough attention since it was actually an AFC team on the west coast, I just remember Brees playing quite well Rivers rookie year and then getting released for nothing. Like I said I wasn't pouring over the medical reports on the injury so if you say it was considered unusually severe and risky I'll accept that, I am still skeptical of the notion it might have been the primary determinant, but regardless the obrien situation you brought up is a better illustration of the kind of thing we're talking about anyway, so if I'm wrong, pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.

*whistles innocently*

Good article, thanks for setting me straight. I only recalled the young qb has injury dumped by GM for guy the GM drafted without being given a chance to prove he could overcome version, but as you say there was more to it than that. I've never been wrong about anything before, but I guess there's a first time for everything.

Well it was 15 fuging years ago, so memories aren't the best for events that didn't have a direct relationship to your own team. I was in college during the Philip Rivers years, so I remember that whole saga pretty well. 

It was pretty much view as a very non-controversial move by the Chargers. It was a big gamble that paid off in a huge, huge way for the Saints, Sean Payton and Brees.

Related Note: The Chargers are one of the worst run teams in the league.

Name a franchise that has squandered more talent and good teams. I'll wait.....

They deserve to be lumped in with the Bengals and the Browns on that front.

The Bengals and Browns have rarely built good teams, the Chargers have relatively often.

I don't think you'd get a lot of pushback if you said that the Spanos family are terrible owners.

(sure as hell wouldn't get any from anyone that lives in San Diego)

He has a clue. That definitely rules him out of being Sanjay.

If you find somebody else with my posting style, you let me know. I'm nobodies alt and never posted to these boards til a few months ago. I did peruse them on and off over the years, and I *think* I have this vague memory of Igo inviting me to join his newly formed community years ago because at the time I posted to some boards hosted by the Observer, but I got away from sports oriented boards for a long time. I was posting pretty regular to the boards for a game I was playing but the game turned into a flaming dumpster fire and I gave it up as a bad cause.

So now you're all stuck with me. Feel free to bask in the warm glow of my brilliance til Kungfoo dude points out the next thing I'm wrong about.

You posted on the Observer boards?

I'm surprised you still have a desire to surf the Internet.

We'd be talking circa late 90's early 2000's. The only thing I can recall that would help put a time frame on it is for some reason I remember posting about a young free agent DT the panthers had for a year or two that everyone called "The Pig Farmer". Kid had to quit football because of some medical condition, if you can remember who and when that was. How come no one ever tells you what cocaine does to your memory? Maybe they did and it didn't help...

Plus if you think the Observer's boards were bad, you should see some of the gaming message boards I've seen, although there is a certain entertainment value to be had in Korean and Chinese gamers trying to talk smack in broken engrish with a very limited profanity vocab. You haven't lived til you've been told to go suck a mule prostate by a 12 year old posting from Seoul.

Jordan Carstens.

He was good. Potentially really good.  I think he got injured, though.
