So there is apparently a pretty decent LT available in this year’s supplemental draft. Isaiah Battle is supposedly a second round talent if not for his off field issues that got him kicked out of Clemson. I’m not familiar with his issues, but what are your thoughts?

Dorsey likes taking tackles and moving then around the line. If he really is a second round talent, and Reid can straighten him out, maybe he can play RT or RG? It never hurts to turn over rocks at the position we were the weakest in last year. I’d consider offering a third our Read more…

At one point in the life of the franchise tag, the window for negotiating long-term deals with franchise-tagged players reopened on July 15. It now closes then. Which means that, after July 15, the five players on whom the tag was used in 2015 (Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant, Chiefs linebacker Justin Houston, Giants defensive end Jason-Pierre…

Yup….ANOTHER Alex Smith thread….

I recently watched this video www.youtube.com/watch?t=90&v=GwxAqvHjIc4 of Alex Smith 2014 highlights but instead of just watching it and enjoying it, I decided to really study the damned thing and see if I could actually learn anything about Alex from it.

The big complaints about Alex have been that he can’t or won’t throw balls more than 5 yards beyond the LOS. I think most will agree that in a West Coast the offense’s bread and butter pretty much comes down to the 5-7 beyond the LOS pass play with yards after catch being crucial. So Read more…

The “Houston Question” is bugging all Chiefs fans. No doubt about that. So I will try to offer some thoughts on the situation…

#1) Nobody knows what Houston is demanding in terms of a long term deal. But it seems to be safe to say that it’s at LEAST somewhere in the range of $16 to $18 million per year (cap hit) with somewhere close to 50% guaranteed.

San Diego Chargers tight end Antonio Gates has been handed a 4-game suspension by the NFL after testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance.

Welp.

In what will very likely be Antonio Gates’ final season with the San Diego Chargers, if not his last season in the NFL, the San Diego Chargers future Hall of Fame TE will miss a quarter of the team’s games and get marked down as a user of Performance-Enhancing Substances.

Because this offseason couldn’t get any worse for Chargers fans, right?
