Shocked and disappointed because they didn't cut the other players in time for the Saint's to offer him a contract and Franchise Tagging him instead?

By THEY said you also mean YOU, right? You, along with every single member of the national AND local media, have been so down on the Chargers that no one noticed what the Bolts were building down here in the Southwest corner of the continental U. S.
The first thing US CHARGER FANS noticed was that Rivers was back because he actually had a good O-line in front of him. King Dunlap has thrived in Joe D'Alessandris' scheme. Great pick up by Telesco. DJ Flucker, who I thought was a TERRIBLE pick at the time, proved me and the national media wrong. If not for the stint at LT, because of Dunlap's injuries, he would have been a top ten Tackle (according to PFF). But where he really shines is in the locker room. He brings a certain effusiveness that the rest of the Chargers lack. Very addictive. And he also has a mean streak in him that we haven't seen in our O-line since Dielman retired. While Chad Rhinehart has been steady at LG the only weakness that is left in the line is RG Jeromey Clary, a weakness that will be replaced by Johnnie Troutman, Rich Ohrnberger or a future draft pick. That being said, from week 2 to week 12 these guys were shuffling their lineup every week because of injuries.
That line has also helped Ryan Mathews to his second 1,000+ yard season. Instead of no running lanes all Ryan has had to do is pick and choose which one he'll run through and even if there are no running lanes he still has had a better knack at getting positive yards out of a play. And now we get to Danny Woodhead. What joy Philip Rivers must feel to see a mighty mite back in our backfield. He reminds us of our ex-back that went down to New Orleans. Danny is simply a football player. Always picks up the blitz, always picks ups extra yards when there are none and almost always picks up the first down.
And while you mentioned the loss of Floyd, you forgot to mention the loss of Danario Alexander, last year's #2 receiver. No problem for Philip because, as he has shown in the past, given time he can find anyone. At the beginning of the season it was Eddie Royal. Since Floyd went down he has depended more and more on our amazing OROY candidate Keenan Allen. And when that fails he can go to either the trusty Antonio Gates, who still gets double teamed a majority of the time, or the up and coming Ladarius Greene. I expect next year to be a full blown coming out party for Ladarius. And although Vincent Brown hasn't had the breakout year most of us fans expected he has come up with some big plays all year.
And what about our beleaguered Defense? First and foremost injuries. Just after the draft we lose our promising young OLB Melvin Ingram for the season or so we believe. Our stud of a D-lineman Corey Luiget gets hurt in the preseason game vs. Chicago and still isn't 100%, if you ask me. While Telesco hustles to get Dwight Freeney off the FA market to replace Melvin, he soon goes down to injury himself. With Luiget hurt and the likes of Antonio Garay and Jaques Caseaire let go because of cap issues our D-line struggles mightily. While Takeo Spikes was let go in favor of draft pick Manti Te'o, Manti is hurt at the beginning of the season and starts out WAY behind in the learning curve. Then Shareece Wright, Donald Butler and Jarret Johnson get hurt and miss portions of the season and Cam Thomas, Kendall Reyes, Daryl Stuckey and Marcus Gilchrist go through their own growing pains. Even Eric Weddle begins the season like a chicken with his head cut off trying to cover too many things at once. Players off the street, such as Richard Marshall, Crezdon Butler, Reggie Walker and Thomas Keiser are given starting roles at various points in the season. So far, a recipe for disaster. And it was, it was.
Fast forward to week 13. Our O-line is finally the original 5 that were penciled in at the beginning of the season. Manti, who seemed a step slow at the combine and in our defense, is starting to show flashes of what he was in college. Still not there yet, though. Butler and Johnson get over their injuries and are together again. Wright is healthy again and the secondary, which now adds UFA Jahleel Addae to the mix on a regular basis, starts to play better. Keiser, Lissomore and Reggie Walker are now permanent parts of the mix. But the straw that stirs the drink seems to be the unexpected return of Melvin Ingram. Incredible job by this young man to get back on the field on such a short span of time. While he only has 1 sack since his return it's amazing what his pressure on the QB means to the defense. The defense is now getting more three and outs and turnovers. Our secondary no longer has to cover receivers for 4-6 seconds on every play. Pagano can finally use that defensive imagination of his now that he has the pieces to play with.
Mike McCoy, while none of us seem to like his play calling or game management at end of games, is the Real McCoy. He has not wavered in the way he has coached since day 1. Players need a coach they can believe in and they have clearly gone all in with Mike. Although he'll never be a Rex Ryan at the podium, he still is a step up from Norv.
While Mike McCoy has certainly been a breath of fresh air, could any of this happened without Tom Telesco? I think not. He certainly knocked it out of the ballpark as far as the draft goes and we still haven't seen Stevie Williams because of him being placed on IR in the preseason. He has also brought an openness and lack of ego to the GM position that the Bolts were sadly lacking the last 7-8 years. Without Tom Terrific this does not happen.
So, are we a complete team? Not even close. We have holes you can drive a fleet full of Hummers through in ur roster. Will we roll over Denver? Also, probably not (although I give the Chargers a better shot at it than most). And even if the Bolts beat the Donkeys the national and local media will start talking about Peyton's 9th one and done more than they will about the team no one respects.
And that's fine with my Bolts. Just like Joe says.

Get used to feeling disappointed, Rex. You're going to feel like that a lot this year.

Best mock I've seen. Of course, any mock that has Eric Fischer going to the Bolts would be my favorite mock.

Chance Warmack is way to good a player to wind up all the way down to the Cowboys. If he's available at 11 the Chargers will leap at the chance to get him.

Incredible that we all have to listen to all the hyperbole for the last 4 years about Rex "Happy Feet" Ryan and how he and his happy cast of Jets are just "different". I still remember last year when NFP breathlessly reported that they were trying to find out what Rex tattooed on his leg. Why isn't Rex being held accountable for all of this? Isn't he supposed to be a defensive genius who can do wonders with anyone in the lineup? Shouldn't he shoulder the blame for his locker room's implosion? THAT would make for some interesting reading instead of this mess of an article.
BTW-Comparing Mark Sanchez to President Barrack Obama has to go down as THE most idiotic illustration by similitude in the history of NFP.
