    Because Raider fans never traveled two hours to San Diego.

    Chargers have not had real home games for years, even their last few in SD. Doesn't have anything to do with Raiders fans in LA, this is a consistent thing for the Chargers.

    I knew Urban Meyer would end up involved in something and lose the locker room before the end of the year, didn't expect it to be this quick.

    That hire never made any sense to me to begin with.

    I don't know what Urban Meyer did exactly but yeah like day after I said "should we talk about him being one and done" he goes and drops an absolute egg on the organization and at least one ESPN talking head has said he should be fired midseason now.

    But yeah, turns out "bonehead in college = bonehead in the NFL" also applies to coaches.










    Also, I'll say it again, right the wrong. St. Louis Chargers.

    It amazes me that a fuck up like Meyer has been able to have such success in college.

    I still doubt he'll be fired though cause firing him over this means Jacksonville is on the hook for a fuck ton of money. I don;t think they are ready to admit their fuck up yet with that cost attached.

    If rumours are true though that he lost the vets in the lockerroom, then Jacksonville will be utterly terrible the rest of the year (as opposed to looking like they might have something there occasionally, like in the Bengals game.)

    The Bengals game was funny because the Jags seemed surprised by their own success and didn’t really have a plan for it, just a general sense of “oh shit, for some reason we’re doing well.”

    Supposedly he does have an ethics clause in his contract although I'm sure it's vague and not specific to "idiots that pass on flying back home with the team and gets recorded dry humping a 20 YO in a bar". TBH I feel that part is between he and his wife. It's the team related stuff that he needs to own.

    Patriots are apprently working on a deal with Jamie Collins. Guess they are not as impressed with their own depth as I am, or maybe the injury to Bentley is worse than they have let on so far.


    Patriots also have a COVID issue. Both Wynn and Onwenu, starting LT and LG are going on reserve/covid list. They can come off quick if vaccinated, or we just lost them for a minimum of 10 days if they weren't. Obviously assuming they are just contacts and haven;t gotten the virus themselves. If they did then all bets are off.

    I don't know why anyone thought this was a good idea.

    When an organization complains about how bad their stadium the fans believe them and stop going to such a crummy stadium. San Diego played that game for a long time and bitched about Qualcomm for years, fans grew apathetic about their whiney ownership. It happens a lot, right now Oakland fans are not going to baseball games at all between the Raiders previous complaints and now the Athletics.

    San Diego did have loyal fans but suspect ownership dampened their enthusiasm and then abandoned them. They're a year late to LA and the Rams generated some early excitement that leaves the Chargers with some catching up to do.

    The only thing going the Chargers' way are the horrible Rams unis, I know I'm never going to buy any Rams merch with their new shitty logo, meanwhile the Chargers' have their powder blues all the time.

    Chargers probably also have a legit Quarterback, which should carry them. Good QB >>>> Good Unis.

    Rams have Stafford, but for how long?

    He isn't fresh, but he has been looking really good.

    Yeah, right now the QBs are a push, but I'm a believer when it comes to Herbert long term.

    But to be fair...the Oakland Coliseum is pretty garbage. That whole "sewage backups" thing isn't a good look. Worst stadium in MLB plus-or-minus Tampa Bay?

    Jaylon Smith has been released, for all teams looking for a mediocre LB.

    Releasing a guy with a fully-guaranteed salary is such a Saints thing to do.

    only for this year. If he had gotten injured though,. 2022's would have been guaranteed as well. So...better to release before he gets injured

    Just makes me wonder what else is going on. He had tackles when he played, 3rd on our D, while only playing limited downs.

    Saw that coming. Nobody else probably wanted him, probably taking vet minimum to play out the string in NE.
