I agree, he never said she disowned him so it is a bit misleading. She just wasn't happy with his play.

I don't think it was his play as much as it was he didn't look like he was having fun

As you all know by now, I've been following this team just since Philip was signed a few months ago, and I have to say, this is as fun a team to watch and follow as any I can remember in a long, long time. And not just because of grandma above, but everything I've read, seen and heard has already brought me tons of smiles and laughs. Sure, coming off of wasting a decade and a half of my life on the "Keystone Bolts" plays a part in that, but still, there's a genuinely fun element to this team. Irsay, Ballard, Reich and the rest of them aren't kidding when they talk about making sure they bring in the "right" kind of people to this team. You can see it and hear it consistently. They must have a real blast doing what they do together, because it really does show.

Expectations around here in this city have been high since the 2003 season. Since then we have been to 4 AFC Title games (03, 06, 09, 2014) and 2 SB's (06, 09) and won a SB (06). Once Luck took over for Peyton we really didn't lose a beat for the 1st 3 years going to another AFC Title game in 2014. With Rivers here now most of our expectations are once again winning the division and at least getting back to that Final 4. We take losses around hard so what you read last week after losing to the Jags, don't let it shock you. How were the fans in SD/LA overall since Rivers has been there which was roughly the mid 2000's?

The fans I got to know were very much like fans I've known everywhere else, and most of them great people. I really miss a lot of them, too. And like I've told them before, I really do hope - for them - that they can one day enjoy what so many of us have enjoyed elsewhere, that being a championship team and season. Because they really do deserve it.

 

I mean, I went through the ridiculousness of following that inept group of losers that own and run that team (into the ground) for 16 years, yes, but so many of them have had to put up with that crap for 30, 40, 50 or more years. Just torture, utter torture.

 

But they've stayed every bit as passionate about their Bolts through all that time as any diehard fan of any other team. So yes, they deserve it. And if it ever does happen in my lifetime, I'll be incredibly happy. For them.

    • Having eavesdropped into your conversation with NCF, I agree with you, but I think you stated it a bit dramatically by saying that he said the QB position is not the most important.  Let me try to clean that up.   I think at that presser, he was laying out a philosophy that said that he is going to build the team differently than maybe what we've had the past 20 years, where the team was built around the skills of one guy PM then Luck.  He was explaining to the fans the difference between what the fans would see going forward and what they have seen in the past.   I strongly believed that he meant that.  That you can win by building a complete team around QBs like Tannehill, Wentz, maybe Foles (who is still posting a winning record at CHI despite the consistent criticism) and your salary cap and roster won't be hamstrung by one guy.....so your team doesn't fall apart when that one guy has a freak neck injury (or decides to quit mid contract).   Supported by the observation that Ballard was not as choked up by Luck leaving...at least not seemingly as eager to see him come back as Irsay and some fans....so that tends to corroborate the notion that he truly believes that a winning football team is not about one guy...which....would be the QB.   But I'm sure if he ranked the most important positions on a football team, he would list QB #1.

    • I feel Ballard has done a great job building this team's trenches. Now it's time to spend more capital on skill positions.  WR has been a sore spot on this team for way too long (since Reggie) but Ballard can't control all the injuries. DE has also been pretty bad (outside of Houston). He needs to figure that out quick.    Luck quitting out of nowhere really screwed this team, and even though I don't care for who he replaced that void with, Ballard put his head down and dealt with it. I also was not a fan of giving Brisket that much money, but hey I'm not the GM.    Or when you hire a head coach and they also quit on you at the last minute, he handled that like a champ as well.       
    • In today’s NFL, it’s almost impossible to be a championship caliber team without a top 10 QB.  Of course it’s not the only position that matters.  They all matter.  But, better or worse, the game has become so much about the ability to move the ball in large chunks.  And not all QBs can make that happen as well as the game requires.   And getting a QB of that caliber is hard.  And I would argue that it even involves some measure of good luck - like a 6th round pick out of Michigan ending up with 6 rings...or a guy like Mahomes falling to where he did in the draft.   Even getting one of the top picks while needing a QB is far from a guarantee.   Every team that doesn’t already have one of them is trying to do the same thing.  And some high percentage of the top prospects don’t ever make it into that echelon.
    • but can he win a SB with 2 different teams
