    Take it for what it's worth, but I find this helps put things in perspective. Take a look at the forums of a few of the most popular examples given at Bolt Talk as NFL organizations that the Chargers should emulate.

    Pittsburg Steelers = one & done, fans ready to "fire everyone" http://forums.steelersfever.com/showthread.php?t=83512

    New Orleans Saints = gone, fans pissed at their lack of defense and are ready to replace the DC (some want Wade Phillips!): http://saintsreport.com/forums/f2/your-position-gw-coming-back-next-year-saints-221489/ and questioning recent drafts: http://saintsreport.com/forums/f2/our-drafts-sufficiently-productive-213027/

    Green Bay Packers = one & done, fans hating on specific players and are ready to replace the DC: http://www.packerforum.com/threads/i-for-one-hope-capers-gets-a-job-elsewhere.34308/

    Considering the fact that these teams have been rather more successful in the last several years than the policy that has been pursued here maybe they should be emulated in some way, if that is possible.

    FYI - Last 10 years - W-L - playoff appearances

    Pit 105-54-7
    GB 99-61-7
    SD 94-66-5
    NO 90-70-4

    I'm not so sure this makes a glaring case for emulation.

    Haven't been on this board in a while, but I can see that this AJ/Norv thread is pretty much like all of the other ones on the internet:

    An overwhelmingly large majority of fans who realize that AJ and Norv should have been fired and are taking the team in the wrong direction, and one really stupid "fan" who is defending them for no other reason than the fact that he has been blindly doing it for years and doesn't know how to do anything else.

    Funny stuff.

    Quite the impressive bit of necromancy, bringing something that's been dead for a month back to life...

    I prefer to believe he was referring to Conc here, but if posting a few facts to hopefully lend perspective to the issue makes me "really stupid" and "blind" then give me a cane, dark glasses, and a GED.
