San Diego just can't get enough of Leaf

When I moved to San Diego, I learned real quick how much everyone here hated Ryan Leaf. It is not dislike either; it is a visceral, seething hatred, which everyone seems to have. They treat him here as if he went around killing children, instead of being a lousy pro quarterback. Today, the San Diego Union Tribune felt the need to point out he’s moving away, and getting a divorce. C’mon, does it really matter? The Chargers have been terrible since he left; they have a bright shiny new QB of the future. Let us just get on with our lives. I won’t ever defend him as a person; he’s a jerk and always has been. I will say this though: Ryan Leaf was the best college quarterback I have ever seen. He did what was thought to be impossible: took the Cougars to their first Rose Bowl in 67 years! As a Coug, there will always be a soft spot in my heart for Ryan Leaf. So please people, just move on.

Look-you're not from San Diego. You can't tell us to "get over it" when you can't get over things like the ken Griffy Jr. trade or A-Rod being a Yankee. OK? Deal.

That Rose Bowl game was outstanding! Back and forth the whole game... based on that game, I would have bet that both Griese and Ryan would have been great NFL QBs... I still think that Griese is under-rated... Ryan just flacked out for some reason... too bad...
