Sorry, no link because it was from a football magazine I picked up in August. I think it had Moss on the cover, anyways, I love reading predictions and looking at them at the end of the season.


1.QB Drew Brees won't put up the sane stellar stats, but he will have another solid season before being given the franchise tag and traded in the next off season.

2. Rookie OLB Shawne Merriman will step in quickly and make a positive impact as a pass rusher, but it wont be as dramatic as the Chargers would like. Merriman will have a break out season in this second or third year.

3. CB Drayton Florence will establish himself as the clubs top CB, ahead of QJ, a first round pick in 2002.

4. The chargers will be a better team, but won't have 12 wins due to the difficult schedule.

5. The offensive line will struggle under new head coach Marl Mauck, who is more of an exitable and emotional and less of a technician then Hudson Huck, previous Oline coach.


1,4,5 were all semi-right

however 2 was WRONG

I hope 2 is true and he has a break out in year 2 or 3. like 20sacks?

"The Chargers can't even sign their #1 draft pick. They will have the #1 draft pick again. They will go 0-16 and they will move to another city."

My favorite from the start of 2004. :)

I got your PM Boltman19 and I have to say it was quite rude and disrespectful.

This thread was a bit confusing and somewhat pointless (check the off-topic responses), so perhaps if you had no way of backing it up, you shouldn't have posted it in the first place.

Secondly, you could have scanned the magazine article. You could've linked to the magazine's website, maybe YOU COULD HAVE provided a title of the magazine! :rolleyes:

Your post looked appeared like it was made up and you have done nothing to disprove that appearance except attack me in your sig and my PM box. I still think you made it up and now I'm believing that even more because of the way you are overreacting.

Just chill out. :Beer:

notice how in the article they credit drew's good season in 2004 in part with not holding the ball as long and trusting his recievers and not being afraid to turn the ball over, yet when we look back on 2005 we can remember some instances where he totally held on to the ball too long and ended up fumbling. some of that was the crappy oline, but also some of that was drew just not having a quick release at times.

both seasons he had about the same number of fumbles , but we lost alot more of them in 2005 than 2004

he was sacked 9 more times in 2005 than 2004 but only fumbled 1 more time than 2004, but he lost 3 more fumbles in 2005 than he did in 2004, and of course threw more ints in 2005

seems to me the oline had a lack of hustle that they possessed in 2004, that's the only thing i can think of to reason the huge increase in loss of fumbles
