    A second round pick is pretty darn high, but this is a good trade for both sides. Its obvious Chambers has not grown into the player he could potentially be at Miami and they need all the draft pick they can get to start rebuilding. On the other hand, a fresh start could allow Chambers to develop a little further (and he certainly has quite a bit of talent) so perhaps SD will finally find a good, playmaking catcher for their QB.

    So now they don't even have much of a receiver threat this week - What is the betting line going to be now this week - 21 points?

    Regardless this is the best reciever the chargers have ever had under this team with L.T. on it imo and is a great move for them. Im sure the dolphins will use that pick to draft a kicker or something.:p

    As the Chargers continue to gain experience with the new staff, I see them becoming a force by season's end. I see the Chragers being the #3 seed in the AFC. Which will have serious implications for the #2 seed in the AFC.

    It is going to be very difficult to play 8 or 9 in the box against them with Chambers and Gates running free in the secondary.

    This is a GREAT trade for the CHargers! They will win the AFC West (unless anyone here thinks that Oakland, Denver, or Herm's CHiefs are going to outwin for the rest of the year).

    Listen to BB on the sidelines during the game this year, and he tells his DBs that Gates is the only one who can beat them!!!

    Great move by the Charges, nice to not have to face Chambers for either Miami game this year, however, I have a funny feeling that we will see him in the playoffs.

    Definitely a good move for the Chargers, and considering how weak the league seems overall this year, they could make some noise the rest of the way.

    Hard to get past that coach of theirs, though.....

    Maybe they can use the 2nd round pick to draft a good WR. :)

    That sucks. Let's just hope they don't trade freaking Jason Taylor to the Steelers or, especially, the Colts...

    I know you were mostly kidding but you're already short a first round pick in the upcoming draft so I doubt the front office would want to part with and 2nd or more even if both JT and Thomas weren't cap prohibitive.

    It's a good trade for both teams.

    I have been watching alot of Miami lately since I have Ronnie Brown on my fanatasy team.

    I noticed alot more Tedd Ginn last week I wonder if that had anything to do with it.

    Miami should just forfeit the game. Brady could tell Miami's defense exactly what they are going to do each down and they still woudn't be able to stop us.

    I'd give a 2nd for JT in a heartbeat. Only reaosn I wouldn't give a 1st is that he's already 33 years old.

    Wow, good trade for both teams. SD gets a receiver while Miami inches closer to the #1 pick overall in next year's draft.

    A 2nd for Chambers is a freakin' STEAL. I used to be one of his biggest fans, and he's a good, solid player but he has THE WORST HANDS of any receiver in the NFL. A 2ND??!!! Holy Cow.

    looks like the white flag on the season

    Miami is no longer competing

    They are rebuilding

    again

    I wonder if they still have a direct line to Wannestadt? I miss him. He and Wayne f'd that franchise for DECADES...

    They should surely win the weak division they are in, but then...
    they wont get higher than a 4 seed, Pitt is 2 games ahead of them already.
    they will probably be one and done in the playoffs again.

    Chris Chambers isn't going to fix their OL or defensive problems, and he won't fix the biggest problem of them all....terrible, terrible coaching staff.

    They will win the AFCW at something like 10-6 or 9-7, then lose to a better team that grabs the WC from the N or S.

    Chambers is a very average Wisconsin wide receiver. They make them a dime a dozen there. He has crappy hands and isn't particularly fast or really all that good. He's lived off a reputation that comes with being productive in the Big 10 in college and being a high pick. That said, Chambers-Jackson-Davis isn't a bad three WR combo, but it still isn't scary at all compared to, say, the Patriots or Colts.

    Dolphins come out the winners here. Chambers is highly overrated, getting a 2nd for him from a team that may not make the playoffs is a coup.
