Hot Routes 5.12.11: Chris Harris is just awesome

Posted by Will Brinson

  • Chris Harris of the Chicago Bears is a pretty chill dude, from what I know about him on Twitter. (Also, he was a Panther for a few years, so I was always a fan.) He seems to "get it" when it comes to online interaction, and if you hit him up on Twitter, he'll usually hit you back. Anyway, what he did for a Alex of Cheesehead.TV's father is pretty ridiculous. As you might guess, Alex is not a Bears fan. But his dad is, and via Twitter, page/GB">Packers+Lounge)">Alex was able to get Harris to ring up his dad on the old man's birthday.

Legedu Naanee gets drunk, then arrested

Posted by Andy Benoit

Chargers wide receiver Legedu Naanee was arrested Saturday in Indianapolis for public drunkenness and resisting arrest. The 2007 fifth-round draft pick may have sealed his fate with the Chargers, according to Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune.

The account of Naanee’s arrest is, quite frankly, hilarious:

According to police, Naanee came across an active crime scene at about 3:20 a.m. and was told he would have to turn around or go in another direction. Naanee, who according to police had a “strong odor of an alcoholic beverage on or about his breath or person,” asked the officer why he was being “such an (expletive).”

The police officer said after several attempts to get Naanee to leave the scene failed, he told Naanee he was under arrest. Naanee “actively began to pull away” and the officer used pepper spray but Naanee continued to resist.

Eventually he was handcuffed and as he was being walked to the police car, Naanee said, according to police, “Do you know who I am? I am an NFL player and I’m going to sue your a**.”

Naanee is a free agent (once the CBA gets figured out, of course). He has never fully blossomed into his potential as a slot receiver, but his versatility makes him a viable plug-in option off the bench.

Naanee denies involvement in brawl

After he was inactive for Sunday’s game vs. the Chiefs with a hamstring injury, it came to light that Chargers WR Legedu Naanee had been accused of taking part in a bar fight that sent a 21-year-old man to the hospital with serious head trauma.

According to the San Diego Union Tribune , witnesses said Naanee was at the scene of a brawl outside a Pacific Beach nightclub.

“I was not involved in nor did I witness a fight or altercation of any kind Sunday night,” Naanee said in a statement released by the team. “Period.”

The fight apparently happened at 2 a.m. Monday, but Naanee told reporters, via Rapid Reporter Don McLellan, Naanee said he left the club at 1:30.

He also said other teammates were with him before recanting that statement and saying he was with friends.

“I wasn’t keeping attendance,” Naanee said.

Said San Diego police Capt. Chris Ball, via the Union Tribune . “We don’t have enough information at this point to really determine with any degree of certainty what happened. Everyone is giving us completely different descriptions of what occurred and the challenge for us is to wade through that.”

The unidentified injured man is in a medically-induced coma.

Week 12 injury news and analysis, part IV

Posted by Josh Katzowitz

Rams at Broncos

Denver LB D.J. Williams, who’s not had such a great past few weeks, is questionable to play with a concussion. Following his arrest on a DUI charge two weeks ago, he was knocked out of Monday’s game after a blow to the head. But he returned to practice two days later, so it looks like he’ll probably play. LB Robert Ayers is probable to play.

Three of the four St. Louis players on the injury list are probable. That leaves only WR Danario Alexander as questionable. Apparently, he had a great practice Wednesday, and it looks like he’s ready to make his first game appearance since Oct. 24.

Chargers at Colts


The biggest star for San Diego, TE Antonio Gates, is questionable with plantar fasciitis, but it seems highly unlikely he’ll play, because he’s still in a significant amount of pain. WR Malcom Floyd is questionable with a hamstring problem, but Chargers QB Philip Rivers will be happy to welcome back WR Vincent Jackson to the team. Also, WR Legedu Naanee, who hasn’t played since Oct. 3, is probable.

The Colts list seven players as questionable. Since TE Brody Eldridge, LB Gary Brackett and LB Clint Session didn’t practice all week, we’ll just assume those three won’t play.

49ers at Cardinals


K Joe Nedney is doubtful with a knee injury, and he’ll likely miss his second-straight game. San Francisco signed Shane Andrus to replace him Nov. 17, but since the 49ers were shut out last week, he wasn’t needed. It’s likely that won’t happen two games in a row.

For Arizona, DE Calais Campbell is questionable with a bad ankle, and he’ll be a gametime decision for Monday Night Football. Though LB Clark Haggans hasn’t played since Week 7 and is questionable, it sounds like he’ll be ready to play. As will RB LaRod Stephens-Howling, who also is questionable and very well could play.

Analysis: Chargers need V-Jax's services

V. Jackson will return this week, and San Diego really needs him (US Presswire). Posted by Josh Katzowitz

The Chargers officially added WR Vincent Jackson to its roster today (and, in the process, released K Kris Brown), so it’s time to figure out what this means for San Diego.

Obviously, his inclusion will help the Chargers. Or, at least, it should.

QB Philip Rivers has been awesome this year – he’s on pace to break Dan Marino’s record for most passing yards in a season – and as a result, the Chargers average 418.2 yards per game, tops in the NFL. San Diego, by the way, ranks 17th in the running game, so the fact the Chargers are No. 1 overall is an impressive accomplishment for Rivers (and TE Antonio Gates).

Let’s assume for a second that Jackson will perform somewhat close to what he’s provided on the field in previous seasons.

The past two years he’s averaged 63.5 catches for 1,132.5 yards and eight touchdowns – that equals four catches, 73 yards and 0.5 TDs per game, respectively – and if he can provide his team that kind of production, the Chargers offense will get even better.

For now, Jackson will have to be as good as advertised.

WR Patrick Crayton, who’s having one of the best seasons of his career, will be out for the next couple weeks because of the wrist injury he suffered Monday, WR Malcom Floyd is still dealing with a hamstring issue that’s affecting his playing time and WR Legedu Naanee can’t kick his hamstring problem. Plus, Gates’ plantar fasciitis continues to hamper him.

The other question, though, is whether Jackson can perform at the same level after not playing all season because of that nasty contract dispute. According to teammates, he’s practiced at a very high level for the past three weeks, and judging by Sidney Rice’s performance last week (three catches, 57 yards), it’s possible for a WR who hasn’t played all year to be effective after missing 10 games (or, in Rice’s case, nine games).

At this point, though, Jackson’s effectiveness has become a need instead of simply a nice addition for a Chargers team who, once again, is thinking about the postseason. And Jackson will get his chance to prove he's worth the extraordinary amount of money that he feels he deserves.

Chargers getting scary again

Posted by Andy Benoit

For the first eight weeks of the season, everyone was trumpeting the Kansas City Chiefs as THE TEAM in the AFC West. The past two weeks, THE TEAM has become the Oakland Raiders. M. Floyd (US Presswire)

The optimistic chit-chat is nice. After all, it’s chic to say that the Chiefs are a young club with a few explosive playmakers. And it’s wise to say the Silver and Black are pounding the rock and finally turning things around.

Unfortunately, it’s all just verbal foreplay. We’ve reached that point in the season where the San Diego Chargers become dominant. This year, the Chargers used a creative mix of special teams gaffes to propel their annual slow start. Injuries in the passing game also put a pebble in the offense’s shoe, though Philip Rivers’ MVP-caliber performance has nullified most of the potential problems through the air.

And now those problems are about to vanish. Tight end Antonio Gates did not practice Wednesday (foot) and has a 50-50 chance to play against the Broncos Monday. But, for a change, Gates is Rivers’ only missing weapon. Vincent Jackson practiced this week and will return to game action in Week 12. Also practicing this week are Malcom Floyd and Legedu Naanee, both back from hamstring injuries.

The Chargers, at 4-5, are just a game back of the Chiefs (losers of two straight) and just two games behind the Raiders. And both teams must still travel to San Diego in December.

We see this every year from Norv Turner’s club. Never before has this club added a plethora of weapons right before its stretch run. And never before has this club had the league’s top-ranked offense and second-ranked defense (in terms of yardage) at this point.
