    Although they were whipped by the Steelers in every facet of the game, the San Diego Chargers could have won the game. Nate Kaeding just missed a field goal attempt and inside the Pittsburgh 20-yard line, Philip Rivers was intercepted, losing a sure three points.

    In a strange score, the Chargers lost 11-10 and now they are two back of Denver in the AFC West. With six games to go, they can't afford another loss. They have three straight at home — Indy, Atlanta and Oakland — then two on the road before finishing the season against the Broncos at home. It's possible, but it seems to be a stretch.

    Does this mean the end of Norv Turner? Only Dean Spanos and A.J. Smith know for sure, but they already fired a defensive coordinator and they also know that LaDainian Tomlinson isn't the same.

    I hate to say this, but I doubt Atlanta would trade Michael Turner straight up for L.T. right now. I wonder what people would have thought of such talk back in August? They would have said everyone was nuts. But Turner has turned into an absolute beast for the Falcons while L.T. managed 57 yards on 18 carries against the Steelers.

    Yes, Pittsburgh is one super defense. They proved that by limiting San Diego to 218 yards of offense while safety Troy Polamalu made one phenomenal one-handed interception of Rivers. Off a tipped pass, Polamalu dove a few yards in the air and barely slipped his right hand under the ball just before it touched ground.

    There's no doubt about it. Polamalu is the game's finest safety. The Chargers need a miracle, one similar to Polamalu's one-handed grab.

    This is why I was adamant about franchising Turner, particularly with the uncertainty over LT's health. Hester and Tolbert looked real good on film and on paper, but rookies are rookies. At least I have Turner on my fantasy squad.
