    <blockquote>By P.S. Hamilton

    <img width="163" height="233" align="left" alt="Antonio Gates" title="Antonio Gates" src="http://blog.chargers.com/images/AP_Gates.jpg" />Air Coryell was one of the most exciting offenses in the history of football. Opponents knew the pigskin would be flying – they just didn't know what to do about it.

    Quarterback Dan Fouts commanded respect and was fearless in the pocket, despite a bum knee that made him a sitting duck.

    Air Coryell was all about getting rid of the ball fast and keeping defenses on their heels. Every play had a man going deep. If you didn't get to Fouts, he would hit the deep man for six points. Charlie Joiner, John Jefferson and Wes Chandler all averaged over 16 yards per catch, and no one could cover Kellen Winslow. They had so many options that defenses were confounded. Teams had to expect a pass on every down, which opened up lanes for Chuck Muncie on the ground.</blockquote>
