Default How much bonus money do the Chargers save by not letting Gordon get 1000 yards? None.

Seems strange. Gordon seemed pumped earlier this week, to have a chance to play this final game against KC. So close to 1000 yards, which is something of a standard milestone for rushing backs to try to exceed. Then McCoy announces that Gordon won't play.

So, does Gordon really not know his own body, or do the Chargers not want to pay a bonus linked to Gordon getting 1000 rushing yards?

I wish he was playing in week 17. Sucks he isn't.

According to over the cap it has nothing to do with bonuses, as his contract was guaranteed and devoid of any kind of bonuses...

another failed conspiracy theory.
anyway 1,000 yards over 16 games is not an accomplishment, it is pretty ordinary and below average actually. 62 yards per game.

I think MGIII has potential to be a good back, but as mentioned by DHA, 1000 yards is NOT an accomplishment...sadly he will average 3.9 YPC, which is also below average.

The line is surely a problem, but this is another excellent example of what is wrong with our FO. We cannot prioritize...

Gordon says he's not at 100%.

Contract has no bonus.

Gordon isn't 100% and there is nothing to gain. Last thing we need on Sunday is another surgery with 9-10 mointh recovery to a key player.
