Jetsfan0099 Icon : (18 September 2014 - 07:04 PM) FIRE IDZIK
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (18 September 2014 - 08:35 PM) Should have signed Hester.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (18 September 2014 - 08:36 PM) this game might be the worst game I have ever watched, pretty pathetic.
azjetfan Icon : (18 September 2014 - 09:31 PM) With our complete disaster of a secondary I am a little surprised we have not either signed a guy like Samuel or made a trade
azjetfan Icon : (19 September 2014 - 04:06 PM) Milliner also has a quad now. It really makes sense just to sit him until he is 100%. Lets get healthy instead of risking injury or letting Marshal go 80 for a TD.
azjetfan Icon : (20 September 2014 - 03:53 PM) Looks like Milliner will sit this week. Has not practiced this week.
santana Icon : (20 September 2014 - 04:20 PM) WOO! Real! 8-2 shooting practice
santana Icon : (20 September 2014 - 04:21 PM) boo Liverpool
santana Icon : (20 September 2014 - 04:21 PM) FIRE RAUL!
santana Icon : (20 September 2014 - 04:21 PM) idzik for admin! Milber for moderator!

HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:14 AM) RIP Rob Bironas
Canuck Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 08:02 AM) Could some enlightened person explain why our secondary is such a mess despite tons of cap space? It's a passing league, better fix that soon or we'll see the Packers game all season.
greenandwhit... Icon : (Yesterday, 10:21 AM) Grew up watching bironas... Good kicker RIP.
greenandwhit... Icon : (Yesterday, 10:30 AM) Well as one aspiring to be an analyst on football i would say it's because we're trying to save up to makes some big moves next year. If you look at next year's potential free agents they're top of the line. If Ryan and Idznik can keep that cap room... Some great things can happen defensively.
greenandwhit... Icon : (Yesterday, 10:30 AM) and offensively as well.
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 01:32 PM) Dude bironas was solid that really sucks
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 02:30 PM) Sunday kinda sucks without jets football
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 04:50 PM) So who's having JETS withdrawls?
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 04:50 PM) I didn't even watch any 1pm games cause all they had were the CHEATriots on
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 04:50 PM) now I'm flipping between the Den/Sea and the Az/SF games
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 04:51 PM) http://cdn.nextimpul...lbergstoned.gif
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 04:52 PM) HILARIOUS!!!!
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 04:56 PM) kraft is a pathetic troll
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 04:56 PM) and even a "fan" of the CHEATriots doesn't even give him any attention
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:28 PM) I still can't believe we lost to the packers and they go and lose to Detroit
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:28 PM) we lost that game they didn't beat us
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:55 PM) I really hope Decker is able to play tomorrow
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:55 PM) but without risking further injury cause we are going to need him later in the season
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:56 PM) and our running game better go off tomorrow night
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 08:51 PM) some good games today
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 08:51 PM) manning 4th quarter drive was pretty sick
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 08:52 PM) so was russels OT drive
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 08:52 PM) cousins looks legit for the skins
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 08:52 PM) eagles another 4th quarter come back they seem really well conditioned

This is the guy who suffered a concussion against the Jets yet was kept in the game - he even fell backwards at one point without any explanation - then on the flight back to San Diego suffered a seizure. It's a cruel game sometimes. Hopefully Dielman can have a good quality life away from the game too if he doesn't come back.

INDIANAPOLIS — Kris Dielman is close to announcing he will retire, people familiar with his intentions said.

Neither the Chargers nor Dielman will confirm it, but even as many close to the team and Dielman seemed convinced he would continue playing, sources confirmed in Indianapolis over the past two days that the All-Pro left guard will reveal his intentions "soon" and is "leaning toward" retirement.

Team sources and people close to Dielman have indicated for weeks that Dielman has completed his medical research and said he appeared ready to play again. Dielman finished 2011 on injured reserve and had for several months been considering retirement following a concussion and seizure he suffered in October.

Sources said he wants to play but on the advice of doctors, with an eye toward quality of his life several years from now, he will walk away from the game.

Dielman and his agent have not responded to requests for comment.

Chargers General Manager A.J. Smith insisted on Sunday he did not know what Dielman's decision was but said Dielman knew the team needed an answer soon, even indicating it would likely come by the end of the week.

Smith declined to comment Monday, other than to say: "We will announce all of our football business in a timely fashion as we begin to build this year's team in different stages."

The decision by Dielman, a four-time Pro Bowler who is due a $1 million roster bonus next month and $4.5 million base salary in the final year of his contract, increases the anxiety about the Chargers offensive line.

Nick Hardwick is an unrestricted free agent, though the Chargers plan to try to re-sign the player who has started 103 games at center for them. They will also try to bring back Jared Gaither, who was signed in December and played at an extremely high level the final five games of 2011. It is rare that quality left tackles get to free agency, and Gaither is considered the best available this year.

While Smith said the team is still evaluating left tackle Marcus McNeill's medical situation, numerous sources continue to insist the decision has been made to release McNeill in advance of the free agency period. McNeill's $10 million salary is guaranteed if he is not released by March 16.

What the hell were we doing when Jared Gaither became available?
