Chargers sign veteran tackle Jon Runyan; lose Clary for season The San Diego Chargers signed veteran free agent tackle Jon Runyan today to the active roster. Runyan replaces starting right tackle Jeromey Clary on the roster after Clary was placed on Reserve-Injured with an ankle injury. Runyan, who turns 36 on Friday, has been one of the NFL’s premier offensive tackles over the previous 13 seasons. His career statistics demonstrate a model of consistency and durability. The past 12 seasons (1997-08), he never missed a regular season or postseason start, totaling 213 straight games (192 consecutive regular season starts and 21 postseason starts). "We are very fortunate that a player of Jon’s experience and ability was available at this time," said Chargers General Manager A.J. Smith. "He is an outstanding competitor, and I have always admired the physical, nasty approach he brings to the field every game. He will be added to the mix and we will move forward." During his career, Runyan has played in two Super Bowls, including Super Bowl XXXIV with Tennessee following the 1999 season and Super Bowl XXXIX with Philadelphia following the ’04 season; five Championship Games, and the Pro Bowl following the 2002 season. Runyan, 6-7, 330, played collegiately at Michigan where he was selected in the fourth round (109th overall) in 1996 by the Houston Oilers. He played for Houston/Tennessee from 1996-99 before joining the Eagles as an unrestricted free agent in 2000. Runyan started every game for Philadelphia at right tackle from 2000-08.

[T]his week San Diego passes Denver for the first time in 2009. The Denver collapse has been quite remarkable, especially if you look at the FO playoff odds. Just four weeks ago, we listed Denver with a 98.8 percent chance of making the playoffs, including a 96 percent chance of winning the division and a 71 percent chance of getting a first-round bye. This week, the Broncos' chances of making the playoffs are listed at 57.2 percent, with only a 20 percent chance of winning their division. San Diego's win over Denver raised the chances of the Chargers making the playoffs by 38 percent, and cut the chances of the Broncos making the playoffs by 24 percent.

Just a reminder the Chargers Blood Drive is today. It’s a great cause and a good chance to meet some players. I’ve got an appointment around 1pm to try and redeem myself from crowning the Bolts too early.
