If my memory serves me, it was also Brinkley who caught the 2-point conversion in the KC game?

Even if it wasn't, I do believe he can do a good job as a #2RB, but it might just be wishfull thinking.

The one shot this kid has has on O he smashed it and helped us out. I think he only played one game if I remember right which is hard to base/judge anyones performance on. But still time on field looked great.

That was the only game he played a lot in and he looked good.

Baker will have to be a standout on STs to make the team. But even he probably is a better RB than Tolbert. He certainly is faster and from the video I've watched he's decisive where Tolbert would be dancing and hesitating. Baker had issues catching the ball so he would have to improve in that area and show good hands or he won't make this team.
I have to dissagree. AJ has publicly stated that he wanted Tolbert to remain a Charger. And Tolbert was the leader in ST's. Rather you liked his endzone celebrations or not doesn't matter. Tolbert caught the ball well, and was tough to bring down. Many times he ran over the linebacker to make that extra yards.

To say as a fact that Baker is clearly better than Tolbert is wrong, just yet. He hasn't played a snap yet. Tolbert was a fullback converted to RB that pounds the ball. Baker is not.

Most people are correct. Smith was referring to Tolbert; they wanted him back. It's well documented that they offered him a richer deal than the one that he got in Carolina. I am sure they would not have done that if the whole time A.J. was thinking he had a better option in Brinkley who happens to be dirt cheap.

He was also the main back in the raiders game. His stats that game:
16 attempts for 52 yards and 3 receptions for 12 yards... Also, he's never fumbled

Don't forget that McClaine can run the ball too. He can fill in for Tolbert too, with Hester at FB.

Gotta love Leron McClain - from his blog on the front of Chargers.com

http://blog.chargers.com/2012/09/13/...leron-mcclain/

Iím proud to call this city home and wear that lightning bolt across my chest. Itís an amazing blessing to wear it with these teammates. We have some high caliber players and awesome people on this team. To be in the same huddle as Antonio Gates, Malcom Floyd and Philip Rivers, itís a real blessing. Iíve gotten real close with Ronnie Brown too. We have the same agent so Iíd seen a lot of him. To get him out here on this team is a blessing too. We sit next to each other on the plane and joke around a lot. I really love a lot of the guys on this team and Iím going to do whatever I can to help us win and get us to that Super Bowl.

We got off to a good start with the win in Oakland. Itís awesome to win on the road in a stadium like that. The black hole is a ridiculous environment to play in. Man, those fans are NASTY. They love their team, but they really got on my head and were calling me out. They got on my case the first time I came to the bench, so to look up at the stands and watch them walk up those stairs and leave with three minutes left felt great! To go out there, take care of business and get back on the plane with a win was big for us. It makes me hungry for the next one.
