Vincent Jackson knocked out early against Colts

V. Jackson1

The Chargers waited 12 weeks for Vincent Jackson to return and take part of two plays.

Jackson left the game quickly after injuring his calf, then was seen stretching it out on the sideline.  After the Chargers initially said he would return, Jackson was ruled out for the rest of the game.

San Diego leads 13-7 early despite the injury to Jackson and tight end Antonio Gates hobbling around the field.  Peyton Manning has been picked off twice, including a pick six by Chargers linebacker Kevin Burnett.

    LOL!

    Jackson is not hurt. I believe he is required to be active for 6 games this year in order to be eligible for unrestricted free agency next year. I have a feeling he will find ways to be active, but not play the final 5 games this year (and playoffs, however far the Chargers get).

    I would be shocked if this is a legit injury. This guy is a bad and bitter person.

    Jackson reminds me of Merriman.

    Love the Manning face as the Bolts are kicking the Dolts a**es!! Last week we got two Manning faces, but this week only one.

    He’s really doing a great job of proving he’s worthy of his contract expectations.

    I’d love to see any other quarterback operate behind the Colts offensive line

    Its easy for u losers to talk sh*t when your QB’s sit in the pocket all day and throw to wide open receivers!!

    Colts SUCK!! Peyton is the only player on that team

    Good for VJ, because I wouldn’t pay for 65K a game. No way. Yes that’s alot of money to me and you, but it’s pennies for a WR in the NFL.

    If I found out that another programmer was making 150K, and I was making 50K. You think I would bust my butt for 50K? I would want to be compensated for what the average programmer makes or I would want to be able to find another job that would compensate my skills.

    You know what this is what you get when you hold out, if he has a calf injury they can sit him work him on the side keep him questionable, and if they want don’t activate him and keep him another year and go through the drama again in 2011.

    *****************************

    1) He was offered a much better offer before the season started and he refused it,

    And

    2) In his short career, he’s already gotten 2 DUI’s and a third would mean an even longer suspension than he’s already faced. You’re not looking at the bigger picture.

    You can’t just glance at his stats and offer him 10 million a year without factoring in his troubles on and off the field.

    He obviously should’ve taken the 3.5 million tender before the season started and play his heart out one more year. If he’s has good as he thinks he is, at the end of the year he would have 3 possibilities;

    1) He gets franchised for a boat load
    Or
    2) He gets the long term deal from the Chargers
    Or
    3) He gets a long term deal from someone else.

    He will be paid decently by someone next year, but not anything near what he thinks he’s worth. He’s now seen as a toxic, selfish A-hole who dogs it when he’s upset. And wherever he ends up won’t have a Phillips Rivers throwing him the ball, so I see a rough road ahead for VJ.

    obsession55, that you, Pollian?

    10 bucks says VJ gets arrested for DUI tonight…

    Hilarious, he should give his agent a raise if he ever gets a new deal.
