    Gaither could be an all pro tackle if he wasn't a lazy pos. He got his money, and I think he's done playing.

    Re: Chargers place Jared Gaither on IR

    I really just don't understand it. He has the skillset to be a top LT in this league, AND get paid for it. He's tossing away millions and millions cause he's a lazy pos. I just don't understand. Hope he hasn't bred yet, what a oxygen thief.

    Is anybody REALLY surprised? Come on...

    One of my co workers is a huge Chargers fan and he told me that the word out there is Gaither will likely be out the door with several other players, coaches and staff.

    Apparently there are also rumors out there that Phillip Rivers has asked to be traded or released after this season.

    It all depends on the health of his bck, I would never contract someone with back problems, no way to know what you're getting. Feel bad for everyone involved, he's not lazy, he's hurt. He needs to retire.

    Fixed that for you! Seriously, you are entitled to your own opinion, but many Raven fans believe he is as lazy as they come.

    Id agree and thats why a great tackle like mcneill is still available. Why theyd take a chance on one back injury vs another kind of intrigued me. As much as i blame injury i cant say its not without some fault of his own however.

    Oh I don't disagree with you. Gaither had so much talent and had some great games as a Raven. He has something that Oher will simply never have. You just can't find 6'10, quick feet, and brute strength out there, he is truly the definition of a dancing bear. However, if he really wasn't a head case, hypothetically speaking, he would have probably been a top 15 pick in the draft, because he was that good in college. He didn't enter the regular draft because of his stupidity. We wouldn't have had a chance to get him if he wasn't a head case.

    Had he really changed while playing for us, I am sure we would have extended him. Him at LT, with Oher on the other side would have been great, especially with Yanda and Grubbs on the inside. We could have had the best Oline in football today (KO would have replaced Grubbs), and as pointed out by someone else, I think we could have still kept Yanda. After all, we did invest like 3 million in Bryant McKinnie last year.

    I think the Chargers had a lot of guaranteed money for Gaither in the contract he signed, it was around 13.5 million I believe. Yes he could have had a lot more than that had he actually played week in week out. But if he really wanted to, he could hit the road and take that 13.5 million and do whatever he likes with it. While guys like you and I bust our asses off in the real world and will never see anything close to a million dollars let alone 13.5 million for doing nothing.

    True he can walk away with 13M, however just did a quick look at the likes of Long and Thomas and Trent Williams. Long has a 5 year 57M deal, Thomas 7 year 84M, 6 years 60M. Maybe I'm just greedy but to go out and play a game he's tossing away lets just say 40 or 50M by being a pos. THAT's what I don't get. And thats only one contract and I'm being conservative with it.

    Realistically, he has been a waste of space for the majority of his NFL career. If you are irrepairably hurt [the mythical bad back] then get GTFO of the NFL! The real dofusses in this saga are KC & SD. Fool the Ravens, shame on you; fool the Chiefs & Chargers, shame on them!
    I love that the SD beat writer alludes to the rest of the Chargers' seeing through Gaither's act.
    Betcha Suggsy, saw thru it, too. Maybe IR is the safest place for JG on Sunday?

    btw: props to SDS for stickin' by his guy in this rage-filled thread - dance w/ the one what brought you!

    you obviously are forgetting the nearly two years of solid- to - great play he had here, as well as the 5 games for San Diego. He certainly wasn't a waste of space the FEW TIMES that he was a top 10 left tackle playing for peanuts.

    Listen, I understand he's a Lazy POS, and Baltimore fans were watching the O's game that night, but anyone that saw him get hurt in the second to last snap of that game(it was sunday or monday night, can't remember the opponent right now) would KNOW FOR SURE the injury is REAL. Dude is hurt. Sucks to be him, and anyone on his team paying his salary. There is absolutely NOTHING mythical about his injury.

    And Suggs didn't see through anyhting last year when they played, he didn't get past Gaither once all game.

    I get it, we're supposed to hate him, but geez, he could have been one of if not the best LT in football. He ISN'T and almost certainly WON'T, but he could have and we had him here for peanuts. It's a missed opportunity.

    He's a lazy pos. if he wasn't he would be an all pro tackle right now. I don't get how people defend him. There was a reason he was in the supplemental draft. The knock on him out of college was that he's lazy.
