    Well I thought things were looking up for our division. With the Chiefs rebounding and the Raiders making progress this season. I guess that it is short lived. I am banking that 8-8 will win the division next year.

    Raiders: Fired Cable, let their best defensive player walk.

    Broncos: Hired a former player with no front office experience as the man in charge. See Matt Millen. Good luck cleaning up that mess.

    Cheifs: Haley (control-freak) stripped play-calling duties from Weis in a playoff game. New OC coming in.

    Chargers: Kept "Slow Start" Turner. Losing DC. John Spanos drafting talent.

    As a foot note on the Raiders, I read that they have 22 players looking at free agency (was 21 until the Asomugha mess). With their coach fired, what are the odds that even a third of those players come back?

    This division has went to hell in a hand-basket. We can still strive for mediocrity and win.

    This is good for the chargers. Because it just means a easier division title. Like the previous 4 years. I didn't even mention "You know who".

    whats sad is the indictment on our front office. They sold us on championship goals, but mediocrity is all really strive for

    This is the kind of crap mentality that our FO has adopted. And where are we sitting now?

    Bwaaaaahahahahahahahaaaahahahaa.......*deep gasp* Hahahahahahahaha!

    One season of not making the playoffs (3 out of 4 in the last 4 years) and all you 'die hard' fans and crying about the division going to hell, the FO going to hell... Dogs and Cats living together in peace, the end of the world as we know it...

    Seriously, unplug Madden guys and gals. No one is questioning why the Pats didnt explode their organization when they missed the playoffs what, two seasons ago... The mentality on display here would be humerous if it wasnt so friggin sad...

    You all want championships but want to do what every team that is not getting them is doing. Shall we chat about Oakland, most of you should go be their fans... You would get what you want. Coaches fired at the drop of a hat, players let go on a whim, changes weekly... That is what you guys and gals pine for. Its right there for you...

    *shakes head*

    Many thanks for the generous donation.

    I know, isn't it annoying?

    Hey, when we lost to Cinci I wanted to puke and punch everybody around me at the same time, but there comes a time when you just have to get over it and move on. Norv is still the coach, AJ is still the GM; both will be here for awhile. Which I am glad because I don't want to go back to square one like the Broncos and Raiders. It seems that many of the posters in here forget what our team was like before AJ took control. All I know is that since AJ has been our GM we have been a very competitive team in the league.

    Yes. Agree whole hartedly. Am I happy the Chargers are not in the post season? Hell no. But to go all eeyore and insist that a team the is competitive year in and year out even when having whole units decimated (2009 DL, and OL, 2010 WR, LB, ST), maitaining a toped rakend O and D, and want to blow that up is cutting off your nose to spite your face.

    Idiots...(no offense). This was not ALL about the Chargers. This was about the division declining and what teams are doing to decline.

    Before the start of this season people thought the Raiders would have what? 2 wins? KC? They were going to be trash right? Denver would be our only competition right? One days decline is another days exceleration.

    I'm not ready to claim the season's gone to the dogs until I see it in the kennel
    Until then I'd rather focus on getting better
