    Re: NFL 2017 OFFSEASON THREAD

    L.A. gets back tge team tgat played one season there in the AFL, and the team that ran to Anaheim in the 80s, while the only team to win there (the Raiders) are still in Oakland. Football in L.A. is doomed to fail again.

            Brings back memories. Pretty much everything he says applies to Bud Adams moving the Oilers to Tennessee 20 years ago:

            The commissioner said Spanos and the Chargers had "worked tirelessly" to find a solution with city officials.

            However, Faulconer and other leaders from the city and county said the team was not willing to work with the city.
            “At the end of the day, the Chargers wanted a lot more taxpayer money than we could ever agree to,” he said.

            San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer wants San Diegans to remember that we will always have the memories of so many great players even if the Chargers organization has decided to leave the city. (Published Thursday, Jan. 12, 2017)

            "The ownership of this team’s handshake and their word has meant nothing through this entire process,” City Councilmember Scott Sherman said. “We diligently put effort after effort through this entire process only to be told that’s not going to work, ‘It’s our way or the highway.’”

            County Supervisor Ron Roberts used words like “spiteful, “one-sided” and “strong arm” to describe the negotiations.

            History repeats itself. I liked what the mayor of SD said that the legacy of the Chargers belongs to San Diego, strong words, I always feel the same about the Oilers and Houston.

                Considering how well the Rams did their first year back it only made sense to put a second team in LA.

                    And now Seattle and Texas have joined us in the off-season.

                    It's very likely Vince Wilfork will retire, so Houston will probably looking to sign or draft a replacement for him. Still though that's a big chunk of veteran leadership gone right there. The big question for them will be whether or not to keep Brock or cut their losses and go with Savage. But having Watt back next year will be great for their defense to build upon.

                    Seattle desperately needs offensive line help, and John Schneider should be ashamed of himself for neglecting it for so long. Draft, sign, do whatever, but the O line needs to be fixed period.

                        If we're looking at trajectories, then you have to realize Seattle is trending down. They got so lucky this season to even make the playoffs. They were very average, but only got lucky to face a below average team in the Lions. The fact of the matter is, this team is not going to be great next season. The only fortunate thing for this franchise is they play in the worst division in the NFL. If the Rams can stun the world and bounce back next season, they could easily surpass Seattle. If Arizona plays up to their standards, they too could take over that division. Seattle is a lucky team and will more then realistically remain that way next season thanks to their division. If you think Pete Carroll will stay in Seattle once their stars get old and they start losing, you're out your mind. They are getting older every year and the big dogs in the NFC are getting younger. Seattles time is ticking.

                        As for the Texans, I think they're going to give Brock another season. He's owed too much money going into next season. He may not be the starter towards the end of the season, but he definitely will be on the team. Houstons biggest priority is getting Tony Romo this offseason. If that D remains healthy next season, this team will finish in the top 2 in the AFC seeding. Believe that.

                            Seattle will be fine. An improvement or two to the offensive line and Earl Thomas comes back healthy and they'll again be one of the three best teams in the NFC. Only the Cardinals have the pieces to challenge them in their division right now.

                                Depends if McVoy can tap into Goff and can accompany him with a Desean Jackson or some other top WR because with Gurley and that defense, the Rams could right away get in the midst of that divison.
