Looks like another great AJ move. In all fairness he WAS he best pure running back in he draft and I really loved the pick.

But if it quacks like a duck... It's a stinky duck.

I'm not saying I wouldn't rather see some of those guys in Chargers jerseys, but the fact the team only has four rushing touchdowns is a symptom of problems that go deeper than who the running back is.

The team doesn't run the ball enough, period, and it's running it even less in scoring position. Touchdowns require opportunity.

Count me in the camp that would have kept Michael Turner (or Sproles in a slot/receiving back role), but I think Turner especially would be having a horrible season here this year.

EDIT: To wit, players with more than 4 or more TDs rushing this year --

Shonn Greene
Beanie Wells (2.8ypc and 231 total yards)
Mike Tolbert (39 total carries)

No one who's far and away more talented than what the Chargers have (or more productive from a pure numbers angle). So is the deficiency in the Chargers players, or the situations and play calls?

That's it. I am hiring a few select CMB memebers to be apart of the Chargers Organization. The one with the most hindsight will be the GM, the one that coached their kid's little league football games will replace Norv and we have psuedo which is going to be our new running back. God speed psuedo.

Funny as he's never had a run longer than 39 yards.

Unlike most, i think he's "due."

He'll be entering his 4th season as a vet. He will be out from the shadows of being known as the "fumbler." I can't say that his contribution this season was amazing, but there were some moments where it seemed like he was "figuring it out."

A new vision should help him find his fullest potential. I am quite certain that the incoming HC (and OC) will spend a lot of time thinking about ways to maximize Mathews.
