Come football season, we'll see who's laughing.


You should thank Tagliabue, Allah, Jesus and John Madden that the Chargers are still in the West.


yeah, cause the niners and the cardinals are going to be much better. ;-)

TOUCHE!

Alas, the Cardinals are finally getting their sh*t together. And the 9ers have finally ran out of Karma.

Nevertheless...I'm sorry. You have my sympathies. ;-)

Here is my take on hambrick...

I'm not going to say it was a great pick up because it wasn't. I do think though, that it was a reasonable one. At the very least he will provide a good special teams player and add depth to the running game. Another thing, Hambrick probably (and I repeat probably) isn't as bad as he was last year. My reasoning is as follows. Many players in the NFL are dependent on the type of system they play in to be successful. Last year Hambrick played in an offensive system that didn't suit his running style. Parcells' system is more conducive to the finesse, elusive, can catch coming out of the back field- type back. This is a big reason why parcells passed on Steven Jackson and Gregg Jones to take the smaller faster julius jones. Because he fits in better with his system. That said, I don't think Habrick has the stuff to be a super star back in the NFL, but he should look better than he did last season. Another thing, at one year 535k his signing wasn't exactly a big investment.

Errr...it's been my understanding, and I've read many times that Parcells prefers a bruising between the tackles RB...

Parcells had Curtis Martin for his last 5 seasons before he took his leave of absence in 2000. I hardly call CMart a finesse, elusive, can catch out of the backfield type.

Parcells prefers guys that can pound the ball, steelyeri.

Hambone is terrible... I think the season will start off w/ Wheatley as the starter, and then eventually Fargus stealing the job.
