Yesterday San Diego Chargers reported that Jeremy Childs was released from any further tryouts. Of course Childs stated openly prior to his release that he did not regret leaving Boise. Well, I imagine he’s sticking to his guns — but man did he ever make a mistake. 

Jeremy left BSU early for financial reasons (taking care of his family and all). That’s good enough but now what no education and no contract? 

Bronco fans may contemplate the what if he’d only stayed one more year — Boise State would have been deeper yet and Childs may have been drafted. Why wouldn’t he have been he’s a fine receiver? 

The problem for Childs was trying to go this year and with all teams San Diego? The Chargers have good receivers there thus the odds of Jeremy making that team was extremely iffy. 

Oh well what you gonna do? After hearing about Jeremy’s release I checked the forums to see what locals were saying  — nothing good was said that made any sense. One person said CFL there you go or something like that. 

Those types of comments are ridiculous, what makes people think that the Canadian Football league is any easier to break into – If that was truly the case it seems there would be far less talented football players playing for teams like the Boise Burn and other teams of that type?

The CFL is a great league and players fortunate enough to land positions with any of those teams are very good. If Childs attempts to make the Canadian league we wish him well — but we’re not so sure he can make the CFL anymore than we thought he’d break in with the Chargers. 

But who’s to say the best to him whatever he tries. Maybe he will finish his education in Cali and in the mean time play for a spring league (that’s chump change but a lot of very talented guys are relying on that to supplement their incomes in these hard times.
