    Was that the year that Jr tackled Turner the Burner for a loss to keep SD out of the endzone in the AFC Championship?
    A few years later....Jr was no longer starting on New England.
    Maybe 2009

      I wonder what Belichick was snorting?
      Ya well. OK. Just saying a lot of short term signings and eventual releases weren’t of Jr. Seau’s (or Rodney Harrison’s) caliber. Far from it.

        Historically the Chargers have made some terrible choices.
        Under Staley, TE Cook was a luke warm success / failure 1 yr hire. Fackrell was 1 & done.
        They met a short term need, didn't cost a lot, were allowed to leave.

          The Cook signing was the classic case of a vet familiar with the offense to help ease a young QB's transition into it. Nothing wrong with that and he was never going to be here long. It wasn't an earth shattering success but did what I think they wanted it to, even with the drops. But clearly it was time to move on from him and we did.

            Agreed.
            I should have made a more obvious distinction between "historical" and last year. I see no obvious issues with Staley era FAs and give him kudos for Linsley, an excellent signing. Hopefully this year's top FA is as good or better. Khalil Mack is a freak of nature.

              The one year Staley was in Denver Callahan was out for the whole year. He's like Jason Verrett and Trevor Williams. A good contributor if he can stay on the field.

                With Staley bringing in vets he knows, has worked with and has a good relationship with seems to be an advantage.
                That said, it's all just talk until the pads go on.

                ps: Herbert's calming goat, Daniels may not be a clear win to everyone but I for one would not mess with whatever it is Chase provides.
                I don’t think Staley brought in any vets he doesn’t think will contribute on the field. I tentatively partially agree with Caslon on the overstatement of mentoring. Having some been there done that guys in the locker room obviously helps vs a team entirely green and new. But if they can’t or don’t perform on the field, they won’t be respected by the young Turks in a hyper-testosterone world of pro football. I know because I saw that movie

                Which brings me to Sir Daniel. I don’t think much about Daniel holding Herbie’s chi latte in the qb room while herbie displays his MONSTER EPIC. So biggest picture i don’t care. But I don’t see anything on his resume that brings any degree of credential or expertise at all. He’s never been a starter, never been worthy to lead a team, never led a team, he’s never done shit. He’s just been there, big deal. He can’t teach Herbie how to lead a team, win a championship, or be a HOF performer - he hasnt done a single thing in his career.

                i don’t think he’s a necessary piece to any puzzle though and all things equal would rather have a QB2 that can play QB. But if Staley and crew get comfy fuzz balls having him around, i don’t care. Playing QB in NFL is very very hard, there are not even 32 guys in the world that can do it well. Not like just picking another great QB2 is like picking the #9 at Jersey Mikes or something. No guarantee a different QB2 can play either.

                    I can't imagine that finding a QB better than Daniels at being a 'QB' would be all THAT hard. The undrafted rookie we brought in might be able to do it.

                        About a year ago now I could have been more down on Mr Stick. then he came out and soundly outplayed Daniel the entire PS imo. I agree with you on this, and will be watching to see if he repeats.

                        I found 2 things fascinating here
                        1. Stick took some huge steps from when we last saw him the prior PS.
                        2. Daniel’s entire reason = Lombardi-whisperer, the key guy to mentor the Lombardi design to our Golden God. yet Stick, in just a couple months, mastered it more effectively than Daniel could after many seasons of exposure to it?

                        maybe the PS game tape was too small sample size bad data and every day in practice Daniel was outplaying Stick? Idunno.

                          If we need to replace Herbert for one or more games, Stick is the better QB.
                          Meanwhile Daniel is the better player / coach.
                          We're entering year 2 of Lombardi / Staley / Saints / Chargers Offense and I suspect that Daniels with his NO exoerience aids the process.
                          Just my 2 cents.
