DaFace and I were just talking football, and we looked something up and remembered this little fact.

Not only was Ryan Leaf a colossal bust with the #2 pick in the draft, but San Diego traded up to get him. The Cardinals held the #2 slot and the Chargers held the #3 spot. To move up one spot in the first round, the Chargers gave the Cardinals...

the #3 pick in the first round in 1998 (Andre Wadsworth)
their first-round pick the next year (#8 - David Boston)
their second-round pick in 1998 (#33 - Corey Chavous)
kick returner Eric Metcalf
linebacker Patrick Sapp

I didn't remember that the Chargers traded into that spot. Ouch.

In some parallel universe, Ryan Leaf is running off the field after his fourth straight Super Bowl victory, sweat streaming down his face and a three-breasted Suzy Kolber chasing him for an interview.

I dont recall that.

I do recall being the best 9-7 Team ever back in 2005 though.

Is that like being the world's largest midget or the world's smallest giant?

I think that was when you guys were the "best team to not make the playoffs" Then the next year, you were the best team to not make the superbowl.

How about this, this year you can be the best team under .500, and the best team to have a bottom ranked defense.

Sounds good to me.
