Chargers Cut Chambers to "make room"

Today, the San Diego Chargers cut Chris Chambers to make room on the roster for a replacement Linebacker. With backup Tim Dobbins going down with a knee injury, the Chargers need to find a fill in. It really is a shame, about Dobbins of course, because he has been looking really good while playing for the injured Kevin Burnett. Hopefully he did enough to work his way back into the lineup once he is healthy again.

Back to Chambers, though, I honestly couldn’t be happier. Last week was kind of the last straw for me, with all of the dropped passes. I used to think of him as the guy who caught everything and a steal for a second round pick, but these days he couldn’t catch the swine flu if he hung out in the Duke locker room. I can’t count the number of times I have screamed at the TV that Malcom Floyd should be getting the reps instead. Though, if you count the amount of drops Chambers has, that is probably the number. From now on we should see a good dose of Rivers to Floyd, at least a higher prescription than before.

Whether it was to make room or not, this fan is happy to see him gone. The next question is, does Craig BUSTer Davis get some reps, or is he next on the block?
