Guess Ferguson and Turbin aren't impressing our coaches. Would love to see us upgrade our running back situation, but Ridley isn't the answer IMO.
Damn, I wish we had Darren Sproles like five years ago.
It really isn't much of a private matter when both the Chargers and Bosa's agent are making press releases about the situation. If the Chargers and Bosa wanted to keep it private they should of continued the holdout and kept out of the press. Really they fueled their own fire.
Just one more thing & then I promise I'll drop this, when a guy says "this is what I would do if I were in his shoes" is really a veiled threat or backhanded slam symbolically shamming that player thru a guilt trip to fall in line. Now, I respect peoples opinions different from my own & they have every right to make them sure...Except for 1 thing: this contractual crossroads concerns 2 entities--the Chargers front office & Joey Bosa & it's his decision to walk away from the table or not not Jackson's.
Guilt trips have never worked on me ever since I was little so whenever I see a player or franchise engage in nonsense like this...I always call them out.
From my perspective, and Defjams26 is one of my compadres on here most of the time unless we just disagree on an issue which happens from time to time. I don't think the RB spot is Neglected. Turbin is fine for short yardage/goaline , inside zone types of plays. He also gets better with increased carries running behind the Starters which he hasn't gotten to do much of this preseason. He can also assist in the passing game/screen game. But he's not a wiggle type of outside zone runner and that's the other element we need from that 3rd back. I think we need a competent 3rd RB so that all the styles complement each other. Ridley has the skillset to me, but I don't like this guy when it comes to ball security. Got to show me something there bro.
Hey there Amy,
Nice to meet ya & don't be shy. It's an awesome mixture of deep thinkers, jokesters, & diehard horseshoe fans here. All opinions & perspectives are welcome here. We have football fanatics, causal observers, & just curious people on here who like to vent, blow steam, broaden their horizons, & just chuckle at stuff the regulars always say. All team allegiances are encouraged to express themselves politely & peacefully here, which is pretty cool too.
I just watch the games at home on Direct TV Sunday ticket by myself usually.
