Definitely the biggest injury so far. Unfortunate, but we can only hope it doesn't happen to our guys.

 

Question though: If you were Ballard, would you offer Swoope to the Chargers for a 5th round pick and see if they bite now? Their starter at TE is now Virgil Green.

I doubt they would bite on that.  

 

Also as pointed out, they could also try and get Gates to come back for one more season.

I'd be surprised if Gates came back. If he did, he'd be a shell of himself and it'd be for sentimental reasons more than anything. I'm giving the Chargers the benefit of the doubt for now that they aren't that dumb.

 

They could bite on that, I think it's about all we could offer, but I'd love if Ballard took a shot like that to add another draft pick for 2019.

Wonder if they try Fleener if his head is on straight yet?

It looks like the Chargers might be open to bringing Antonio Gates back.

Sad....its that time of year for this stuff....but yes I would expect Gates back. I wouldn't blame them for being interested in a young guy though...that's an old TE group.

Julius Thomas is still available. He might get a look, IMO.

Ouch.. I really thought he’d emerge as top tier TE this season. 

 

Gates back to cheat Father Time for another season it is.

And it begins..

 

ACL injuries, unfortunately, yes.  From monitoring previous years, I expect up to 20-25 more of these in the league by the end of training camp.  Certainly distressing, but likely a fairly accurate projection .I hope none of our top 53 suffer one.

 

BTW - people here often complain about the number of Colts injuries, but it seems to me the Chargers get bit even harder most years.

I read it was around 30 ACL tears before the season starts on average. So about 1 per team on average. That won't be perfectly even though, so the Chargers theoretically could get a couple more ACL tears as well, or another team could easily get multiple ACL injuries as well. It's a bad luck injury as most are non contact. Just have to hope for the best.

I went and looked it up, here you go -

 

 

We've only reached 30 one time recently, 2013.  Interesting numbers... pre season vs. the regular season, yet about 50% of the ACL injuries.  Larger rosters, less games.... similar numbers.

    • I'm actually dropping the jags D in favour of the patriots D. I don't like the jags D versus the new bills that have two weeks to prepare.    Right now I've for Ari for this week, Mia for 12,  KC for 13, NE for 16 and backup on all my weeks except for 15. Which I plan on getting Den or Buf for 14 & 15.
    • Gurley already got that, $45M actually. You need to do some research.
    • Luck is 9-0 vs the Titans let's make it 10
    • We've talked about it a lot this year.     Especially in August and September.    Ballard brings in all these kids and he has to see what he has.    How do the kids do in real games?   This past week,  we had Smith make a rare penalty in the 3rd quarter and suddenly we're facing 1st and 20.   The very next play works to perfection...   the J'Ville defense clears out and Hines is all by himself in the middle of the field.    Luck's pass is perfect but Hines turns his head to run with the ball before he catches it.    Dropped.     If he caught it,  he might have run a long, long way.   The next series,  a well conceived pass play finds Luck hitting Allie-Cox with a great pass.     Allie-Cox looks the ball into his hands,  but it goes through his hands, off his chest protector, bounces off and gets intercepted.     The perfect play works perfectly right up to the moment where it doesn't.   That's what kids do.     They make mistakes under pressure in big games.   This is the bad with the good.     If you're looking for Reich and Ballard to bench these guys --- you're going to wait a long time.   The kids still need to play.     The more experience they get this year,   the better they will be NEXT YEAR.   And that's what this year is about.     Making next year,  and the years after them,  as good as can be.   So, if we see more mistakes from the kids Sunday,   don't be too surprised and don't get freaked out.    It's what happens when you play the kids.   And Ballard and Reich know it.   Should be a great game Sunday!!  
    • Of course you wouldn't mind.    Problem is,  it wouldn't happen.   What has Hooker done to warrent trading a 1st or a 2nd round pick?      Not nearly enough.   Right now,  we'd be lucky to get more than a 4.   Hooker isn't going anywhere...
