Default Chargers On a Down Spiral....

I knew that this would happen to them once they hired Norv Turner. Their owner is a very foolish one for following the advice of A.J Smith. They should have kept Marty.

No wonder the Manning's wanted to stay as far away from that organization as humanly possible......Even if it meant the other side of the country.

Well, I said when the hire was made that if Turner came in and guided a team that loaded in talent to anything less than 11-5, he should not only be fired, but also never be given the opportunity to be a NFL HC again. It's still early, but his margin of error is getting thinner.

LOL, listening to Ditka on Mike & Mike this morning; "Well, Marty's gone but they still have the GM, and as we all know a good GM is the key...."

He's a good OC and seems like a nice guy, but just not HC material.

The whole thing with Marty and A.J. never seeing eye-to-eye should have been handled the same way the Cowher-Donahue drama was handled.

Ok, I think the criticism of the Chargers is overly harsh.

Their 14-2 season last year is hanging round their neck like a millstone - fact is LT had one of the alltime great seasons by a RB - most of the time he was just plain unstoppable.

Its going to take a little time for this team to adjust to the whole new coaching team, but im convinced that that, if he can find time in between chewing his QB out, LT will rediscover some of the 2006 vintage form before long and the rest of the team will follow suit.

Thats the problem with 14-2 seasons - there is very little scope to improve - and the NFl is such an overly reactionary league..and its fans are too.

They are fortunate Denver is not playing well either - both of those teams are underpeforming.

IMO the Chargers are facing what I thought might be an issue with the Steelers - going into the season the big isssue for both teams was the changes in coaching - (at least the Steelers kept LeBeau). Once you get off to a slow start the self-doubt creeps in, which is not helped if the players start jawing at one another.

The schedule helps the Bolts - Chiefs, Texans and Raiders at home + Denver & Vikes on the road before a stretch of Colts, at Jax, & Ravens.

You should be. After (personally) watching the Chargers play twice, seeing how Denver has struggled with inferior teams, and KC tank, the Raiders may have a shot to win the AFC West. 7-9 may do it, since you all have to play each other a couple times.
