      If Leaf was nuts before then the Chargers as an organization aren't good scouts. I wouldn't want to go to a team with terrible scouts. He was arrested for stealing drugs from somebodies house not too long ago, but LT was also arrested for rape. Both of those things have ZERO to do with their playing days.

        I just read an interview from Leaf that was written by his cell mate one time from jail. They were friends... I guess still are. Leaf became heavily addicted to pain killers. I think from the interview that he wanted to escape from the world because he felt like he was being judged as a failure by too many people.

        I always think of it as, Eli didn't not want to play in San Diego, he just really wanted to play here. And why wouldn't he, with the best fans in the world?

          Personally, I'd rather he said your first sentence or Let's talk about the game on Sunday.

            I'm sure he'd like to forget about this season as well.

              Yeah. I know Favre was badly addicted early in his career as well. I feel like that's something everyone is susceptible to, if they get into them.

                  Maybe Eli doesn't remember he won 2 Superbowl MVP's.

                    I can't say whether Eli forgot or not. I know there are plenty of "Giants fans" who have.

                      Ha...Eli knows exactly why he didn't stay in SD.

                      What he probably did forget is who's blocking his left side.

                        It seems to me that saying he can't recall that significant event is like his saying he doesn't know where he was on 911.

                          I've always felt like there was maybe something personal to that decision too and it's classy not to rehash those things.

                            Well according to another journalist he said it tongue-in-cheek. If so, bad reporting by Michael David smith

                                Yup. Can't blame him for not saying anything in response to a sucker question, if history is a judge, no one can blame him (or his dad) for not wanting to play in San Diego.
