McKenzie is fine, but is Diehl really the long term answer? If you have the chance to draft a franchise LT and can shift him back inside to LG, wouldn't you do it?
I would grab a LT, but I wouldn't necceasrily play him over Diehl at LT for now. It is a need, but it isn't a pressing one. And it isn't because age. This is something I'm curious to see how it plays out as well. Word coming out after the Super Bowl is that Diehl had some torn ligaments in his hand all season. Don't know how much it affected him, but it is worth noting. He also dropped a bunch a weight as the season went on because he wasn't conditioned to play tackle. I'm curious to see how much better he can get his body in for next season.
Even before his injury, Payton wasn't deploying Deuce the same way he was back in 2006. Both Bush and McCallister were struggling, and the running lanes were not there. I'm not certain that McCallister, coming off another severe knee injury, will be enough of a force for the Saints to really rebound. That defense needs a ton of work.
Did that guy say the AFC West was pretty much "up for grabs this year"?
DUDE, what planet are you from? The Chargers have probably the best mix of talent and youth in the league. Oh and $30 million under the cap. Remember that team that went to the AFC championship game? Denver is the only team in the Division that has a chance at the Chargers and that is still very slight. I know being a Raider fan must really freaking suck balls and I totally understand I do (I'd probably take a bath with my plugged in toaster if I was a Raider fan) but how can you even have the guts to say something like that on a football website?
ARE YOU SERIOUS?
How many Lombardi trophies has that young mix of talent lead you to? None? By the way nice job finally reaching the AFC Championship game again, it only took 12 years? Did you guys win? Wow, yeah you're soo dangerous and untouchable, it's not like LT is getting older and coming off some bum knee issues, and never mind the fact that his backup is as good as gone. No, you keep living it up, only 5 more AFC West championships and you'll be tied with the Raiders. Yeah it's so dreadful to be an Oakland fan, I mean yeah we have to live off past glory right now because were in a slump but at least I have those championships to look back on while you Dolts fans are crying and beating off to Natrone Means and your only AFC Conference Championship. Give me a break.
