The SB Nation NFL team sites are continuing to do Theme Weeks after starting the trend during the 2017 season. This week’s theme is: “What if?”Ask any San Diego Chargers fan (I’ll get to you http://www.thechargerslockerroom.com/authentic-justin-jones-jersey , L.A.) what the biggest mistake in franchise history was and you’re bound to hear the same answer 100% of the time: Ryan LeafWith the #2 overall pick in the 1998 NFL Draft, the Chargers selected QB Ryan Leaf from Washington State. You could hear a million arguments at the time of why the Indianapolis Colts should, and should not, draft Peyton Manning with the #1 pick. Many thought Ryan Leaf had a better future because he had a better arm. Leaf, who wanted to follow in the footsteps of Dan Fouts, had made his mind up. He worked with his agent to anger Colts Head Coach Jim Mora Sr. and worked behind the scenes to let the Chargers know that he was doing so to ensure he could be the next Chargers QB. He may have been the 2nd pick in the draft, but Ryan ended up with his #1 choice.Read here about how Leaf was not what you would call a “draft bust” early in his career. In fact, it wasn’t until he faced a serious shoulder injury followed by a serious wrist injury that things really went sideways for the former Cougar.Why is that important? After three years, Leaf’s body was so beat up that he couldn’t throw a football. A real shame for a guy who some still talk about having one of the biggest arms in college football history. A real shame for a guy that wanted to come to the Chargers so that he could show off that arm with big passes and big plays down the field.That 1-15 record Womens Kyzir White Jersey , the one that sunk Mike Riley’s career as an NFL head coach, was a direct result of an injured QB and a misdiagnosis at the hands of a reckless team doctor. It was also the end of Leaf’s time in San Diego.What if things had gone differently?The most notable difference for the Chargers, had Leaf stayed healthy, is not that they potentially have their franchise QB. That’s a minor blip...(Also, here is where I point out that it’s really difficult to predict Leaf could’ve been playing in Pro Bowls when the guy could barely crack 50% completion percentage in a league that was amping up the importance of exactly that skill/stat.)Leaf’s injuries lead to the 1-15 season that changed the team’s course forever. It led to the firing of the front office and coaching staff, replacing them with John Butler (and A.J. Smith) from Buffalo and famed Chiefs/Browns coach Marty Schottenheimer.It also leads to the team trading away the #1 overall pick and getting back a package that helped them build a core of:LaDainian TomlinsonDrew BreesReche CaldwellTim DwightThat’s two Hall of Famers and two very good NFL players that probably never play a down for the Chargers if Leaf stays healthy and is at least a league-average QB through his early 20s, which is/was entirely possible.If you’re the type to look for silver linings, as I am, don’t think of Ryan Leaf as the failed draft pick. Think of Ryan Leaf as exactly the type of player the Chargers needed to end up drafting two Hall of Fame players in the same draft class and be thankful that things turned out the way they did.What do you think would have happened? Did things turn out better or worse than they would have?

As for the AFC West, Orr predicts the Chiefs to repeat as division champs with a 13-3 and record. As for the Chargers, Orr has them making another appearance in the playoffs http://www.thechargerslockerroom.com/authentic-mike-pouncey-jersey , but still regressing slightly into a 10-6 record.Here is what he had to say about his prediction:“This division as a whole has a brutal schedule, and the Chargers, despite scoring winnable games against the Lions, Broncos and Dolphins in their first few weeks, will face some gauntlets toward the end of the season. I think they’ll amass enough of a bumper to reach the postseason again, though their pre-bye week run of Bears, Packers, at Raiders, Chiefs is tough Womens Isaac Rochell Jersey , as is a finisher of Minnesota, Oakland, at Kansas City.”A season record of 10-6 wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world but it may end up being a disappointment after the year the Chargers had in 2018, especially when they would have to watch the Chiefs win the division once again and enjoy three more victories on the season.I personally think the toughest parts of the schedule include the start of the season, with games against the Colts and Texans, and the final seven games of the year when five of those are division match-ups. The other two being the Jaguars and Vikings, both of whom boast defenses that are as intimidating as they come.The Chargers must bank on a hot start out of the gate to make sure a late-season collapse doesn’t keep them from the playoffs.<hr class="p-entry-hr" id="24Pl8o">Do you guys agree with Orr’s prediction? What would you change about it? Let us know in the comments.
