Bleh. I don't like uncertainty/kind of pessimism.
Hard to say what others expectations should be. However, my current expectations don't even contain the word "playoffs". IMO, this team lacks talent in too many positions with potential to lose even more talent via vet FA's. That seems unavoidable to me at this point, but doesn't take into account how the new GM will want to start his building process.

Change can bring about great things if done properly, no reason to be pessimistic yet. Being realistic about what happens with big changes like this is important, but at this point all there is is speculation. Just remember it's only speculation and you should be good.

@ Ski - Good point, I guess. I also don't see playoffs as a realistic expectation. Especially at this point, not knowing anythying about staffing/rosters.

@ FA - That's pretty much all speculation, I wouldn't read into that at all. Especially from Yahoo Sports. They phish for clicks. Same speculation could be applied to Jax, or even say that the Raiders are keeping this coach another year to change before the move to LA in 2014.

Yeah, me too.

The possible move out of SD is a way bigger deal to me than who the GM or Coaches will be. Every year without getting the stadium issue figured out is another year closer to losing the team entirely. It bothers me that the NFL hasn't stepped up to try to help keep the team in town. Seems I read a story about the NFL saying they are going to financially help the Raiders get a stadium built, but no word about an SD stadium from the league.

Cole seems like a decent reporter, but yeah they do like to entice you to read their articles.

Looks like we have another year in San Diego. Hopefully more.

Thought of something strange yesterday. What if the Chargers move to Los Angeles and the Raiders move here.

Its extremely troubling. Hope its a false rumor.

I don't realistically see the Chargers moving to L.A. It might make geographical sense, but with teams like Jacksonville and St. Louis (STL especially since they used to be in L.A.) out there in failing markets, I can't see how the Chargers are frontrunners.

From a marketing prospective, it would be more of a shift of fans than a creation IMO. But what do I know, I'm just an undergrad.

You can fix that pretty easily.

Just go get some two part JB Weld, and use that to fix it. The break will be stronger than the rest of the manifold.

Once it dries and you have it back together, then build you some kind of bracket to support the carb.

By the way, sweet air.
