@Radas_cz try it and see how wrong it goes

@4RingsOrGTFO Chung drew Bell in 1-on-1 situations in passing game last time. Would expect more of same

@MikeGiardi stud, no Q. They just blew the fits & whole L side got washed, creating a pocket. The ol' use ur buddy, don't cut him off, etc

Big Chung game Sunday. Very big.

@chatham58 point being, still had him dead to rights and whiffed. multiple times

Not sure you can afford to bring this many in the box with Ben at QB https://t.co/MKQVxRGR20

@ClarenceWhorley exactly, so to get anyone to believe in the Patriots opponent they have to give them a bunch of free points.

    McNeil has signed his tender and will report to the Chargers. This leaves Mankins and Vincent Jackson as the NFL's only remaining holdouts.

    I couldn't of said it better myself. Exactly why players need to figure out what's right for them rather then just taking their agent's word for it. McNeil became less of a man today.

    yep MM was stupid, VJ is stupid

    i mean i didn't need this situation to know how stupid VJ is, the DUIs told me that

    but MM, no DUI's, just plain stupid, can't even blame it on being a drunk......

    oh well, hopefully MM signing will piss VJ off

    no, i would say he became a man today

    up to today he was just a boy, b/c he held out and got nothing out of it

    but he came back now, admitting a mistake

    I still am predicting that Mankins will be signed and on the field for the Ravens game. Just so you know. :D

    Chargers are really cheap.
    Eli was right to force a trade.

    He was more of a man when he made a decision for himself and stuck it out. Admitting he was wrong took that out of him. Now he has to live as less of a man and with less of a paycheck.

    $37K per game for 10 games vs. $200K per game for 16... 6 fewer opportunities for injury for a mere $2.75M... Let me think about it...for about 30 seconds back in August...

    There is an age old rule of thumb in warfare. Know your enemy. Jackson's agents were in a tough spot because while they knew the holdout tactic would eventually prevail in the swamp where all decisions are desperation driven and they had to know they would never prevail vs. AJ in SD. Not sure what Alvin Keels and Frank Bauer were ever thinking. Holdouts certainly elevate an agents profile. The downside is failure to manage a holdout successfully can be a career killer. Staging a holdout in this labor environment was probably the worst decision an agent could guide a player to make because whether they play this season and get hurt or play down the stretch and don't perform well or don't play at all, there is a real chance they can never make up for the lost income, which is difficult to do under optimum conditions.

    $2.75M might not sound like much in the grand scheme of things for a 27 year old LT, but if through some further twist of fate it's the last annual 7 figure paycheck you ever realize in this league you could live to regret it for half a century...
