71 out of 80...ouch!:icon_eek:
That ranking is justified, IMO.
We weren’t the best team in the AFC that year, but we got all the breaks and really rose to the occasion in Pittsburgh.
I still think that getting to the Super Bowl set our franchise back. The players had overinflated opinions of themselves; many of them stopped buying into Bobby Ross. And Bobby Beathard started to operate as if the team had already arrived as a perennial contender, when in fact we were still a young team that needed to continue rebuilding.
If Stoyanovich had made that field goal, the Chargers would’ve come back in 1995 hungry and focused, the rest of that decade might have turned out much different.
If the decline after that happend because of overinflated egos and cocky attitudes I doubt those same people would've done much better with the team under your scenarios.
How stupid do you have to be to think the Chargers were perennial contenders after that season?
Well said TK. I'll never forget that feeling when we beat the Steelers in thier house.
I'm more inclined to believe we would've just been as bad if not worse because Bobby Beathard would still have run us into the ground. The Super Bowl and ego aren't the reasons we never replaced our OL or found new receivers or kept defensive talent or made all those mutha****ing beathard draft trades
I'd say that's about right, seeing as how we were on the recieving end of one of the worst asskickings in SB history.
Didn't Stan get hurt the next year?
add to it that butthurd unloading our top draft picks and you have a recipe for disaster
**** stan was hurt that year, how can you forget the huge arm pad he wore that season? 71 is justified, too bad this years teams couldve been ranked in the top ten.
There have been worse asskickings. The Donkeys, Faiders & Queefs have both lost Super Bowls by bigger margins. Pats & Bills also.
