With so much discussion revolving around the inherent flaws with the Chargers offensive line, fan concern increased when news spread that Louis Vasquez was on his way out of town. That Vasquez had signed with division rival Denver made the news all the worse.
I like people who bring a voice of reason to matters such as these. But I also love those who go batsh*t crazy and sing:
Team by team, reporters baffled, trumped, tethered, cropped
Look at that low plane, fine, then
Uh-oh, overflow, population, common group
But it'll do, save yourself, serve yourself
World serves its own needs, listen to your heart bleed
Tell me with the Rapture and the reverent in the right, right
You vitriolic, patriotic, slam fight, bright light
Feeling pretty psyched
Clearly, at one point in his early life, Michael Stipe had been jilted by free agency.
Let's see how the twitterverse responded to the news that Louis Vasquez had . . . bolted!
I like the Broncos move to sign Louis Vasquez… He's very respected by NFL coaches

We've got some disappointed fans here. Has Denver even announced the signing?
We've agreed to terms on a contract with guard Louis Vasquez. He is a big, powerful player who adds a physical presence to our OL.— John Elway (@johnelway) March 12, 2013
Shove it horse mouth! "@johnelway: We've agreed to terms on a contract with guard Louis Vasquez."

Haha. That's kind of funny.
Cock. Louis Vasquez to the Broncos. That's a monstrous kick in the entire face, not just the teeth. #failPeytonfail— Matthew Wood (@mwood1712) March 12, 2013
So we sign TE John Phillips and let Denver steal Louis Vasquez? Nice one Tom. @chargers— Jeff McKinley (@Jeff_theRef) March 12, 2013
HOW DO YOU LET LOUIS VASQUEZ GO AND SIGN FUCKING KING DUNLAP— Chase Oliver (@ChaseOliver68) March 12, 2013
Great start @chargers, letting one of the best young guards in the league, Louis Vasquez walk to a division rival. Recipe for failure...

I always thought of Louis Vasquez as being a very solid member of the line, no superstar, but very solid. How solid was he?
In 3,435 career OL snaps during his four-year NFL career, Louis Vasquez has been called for just one penalty. #Broncos— Patrick Smyth (@psmyth12) March 12, 2013
I honestly think the @chargers are the worse NFL team, even the new guys in office can't retain are best FA? Wow Louis Vasquez protection PR— LakersAllDay (@DMorrisFan1) March 12, 2013
The Chargers lost Louis Vasquez to the broncos. Damn, a terrible o-line got even worse.— Derek Carranco (@HiDerekC) March 13, 2013
When all said & done, seems Louis Vasquez was interested in leaving more than staying. But bottom line: SD wasn't gonna pay him $5.8/yr.

I enjoy the visceral reactions of fans during moments like these. It's the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine should become a series. Future installments will be concisely referred to as ITEOTWAWKIAIFF . . .
