@michaelboldiga yea they will wait until Monday when all the media is in Foxboro

Chargers finalist for DC job that went to Gus Bradley was their DB coach Ron Milus. Had Bradley not opted for Chargers, Milus was their man.

Gus Bradley was big defensive coordinator domino multiple teams were waiting on. Now that he's a Charger, other teams will move quick.

    Faulk had 4 fumbles in his last 6 years in New England. And in his last 2 years he had a total of 40 touches. Touches per fumble in his career:

    1999 - 43
    2000 - 43
    2001 - 54
    2002 - 123
    2003 - 60
    2004 - 52
    2005 - 28
    2006 - 58
    2007 - 111
    2008 - No fumbles
    2009 - 110
    2010 - No fumbles (14 touches)
    2011 - No fumbles (26 touches)

    Rethink your facts.

    OK, i'll rethink..

    First 5 years 10 fumbles, next 8 1 fumble, 2 if you want to count postseason and no I'm not looking at receiving, everyone gets popped while not seeing it coming and loses a few. But if you want to go there. 15 lost in the first 5 years and 5 for the next 8

    Point still stands, fumbling is curable. If I remember right he was made to carry a ball around all the time and people would randomly try to smack it out of his hands. Give ridley a ball to babysit 24/7

    Hopefully, his fumbling is somewhat curable, because I think we all see the obvious talent that exists with Ridley otherwise.

    I still expect him to fumble next season, but if he can limit that to one/two fumbles that could be spread out and justified (as Belichick agreed to when Polamalu hit him), it will show improvement. That improvement could allow us to retain him next spring at a reasonable cost, and go a long way towards putting his problem in the past.

    OTOH--if he does not improve on this, it could seriously doom his career, and hurt his chances on the open market come next March.

    Ridley is a really good player and I think he is going to have a great season. I would love to see them get an extension done early with both he and Vereen.
