Stop right there. This is the whole problem that I have been saying all along. We shouldn't have to look for the next VJ when we had the original VJ to begin with.

Lets see if I know Tom better than people think I do: Tom, we drafted VJ, you liked watching him play, and in a perfect world, you would have loved to see him retire a Charger ?

Honest Abe now Tom...

The nest head coach?

Clearly Freak, you are choosing not to see the entire truth.

I've supported the Chargers for years, not just AJ and Norv.

And as of last year, if you had done your due diligence, you would have noticed that I was of the mind that if the Chargers didn't make the playoffs this year, then it was time for AJ and Norv to go.

Not even a giggle over the pictures? A snicker? Nothing.

I am disappoint.

I've let VJ go, and moved on.

Isn't it time you do the same?

I would say yes. But only because I don't have a choice. He has moved on, so I must too.

The reason I cling to him is two-fold.

1. It all started with our debate where I said "You do not JUST give up your Number 1 Pro Bowl WR and think everything is going to be ok." My point there has now painfully been proven.

2. VJ comes, VJ goes, but the story sheds some direct light on our GM. How he handled the whole affair tells us a lot about him, and it ain't good either.

Does this mean there is a place in your heart for DX?

Will he get some Freak love now?

Freak, I was asked to forward this note to you.

Dear Freak,

Why no love for me, Mr. Freak?
I need to feel you kiss my cheek.

I do my job with utmost grace,
Waiting for your warm embrace.

I stand before you, humble, proud.
I need to hear you cheer me loud.

I run routes, I catch the ball.
You sit and lurk this darkened hall.

I didn't know that VJ guy.
But it seems the Chargers told him "bye".

I'll do my job, I will not falter.
Now won't you walk me to the altar?

I'll do my best, to you be true.
My heart is painted Charger blue.

Comparing me to him just isn't fair,
So please get up, out of that chair.

On your feet, scream my name.
And I'll help the Chargers win the game.

All my love,

DX

Yes, AJ could've handled the Jackson problem a whole lot better. But so could've Jackson and his Freaking agents. Oh yeah its easier to go and blame someone from the Chargers. But not the player. Not the people who are representing him.

Freak. He made that decision to sign somewhere else. He chose his path. He got paid. He's gone. I'm over it. Nor will I use hindsight to try to make me feel better.

We should have just fired AJ and Norv, brought LT back for a farewell tour, paid VJ and hoped for the best from new blood. I would've purchased tickets and driven the 1,500 miles to see one of LT's final games in Charger Blue, and I don't think I'm alone. It is poor management brought on by the entire atmosphere created by Albert James and the Yes Men, where players are treated as useless commodities and loyalty is left by the wayside.

AJ has made millions while destroying the team, his firing will cause no suffering. Perhaps that's why the dissidents yelled so loudly as the ship began to sink. We, the fans, are the only ones left to bear the burden of what has happened to the team over the last five years. The fans are the only party involved who invest and are not guaranteed some type of return. Well... in January I hope we at least get the satisfaction of seeing it scroll across ESPN that The Mighty Wizard of Qualcomm has been vanquished and we can return to the pursuit of the NFL sponsored, non-profit, "entertainment" trophy.

Gil Brandt- Draft Expert football Pro says:

Biggest position of need: Left tackle. Quarterback Philip Rivers hasn't had a quality blind-side protector since Marcus McNeill suffered a career-ending neck injury in 2011 and replacement Jared Gaither failed to stay healthy in 2012. An argument also can be made at wide receiver. It's now obvious Smith made a huge mistake letting Vincent Jackson leave to Tampa Bay in free agency, then compounded the error by trying to replace him with a stiff like Robert Meachem. The ex-New Orleans Saints wideout has 14 catches and barely plays after signing a four-year, $25.9 million contract with $14 million guaranteed last March.


LOL
