    It is a good read, nothing we havent beaten to death before though... This paragraph puts the 'mind set' of the majority of Chargers fans into text IMHO.

    Yep - damn shame that Norv has driven this defense into the ground via neglect & an insistence to find "diamonds in the rough". :rolleyes:

    I agree. We're always best when our backs are against the wall. Though some times it'd be great to have that resilience earlier in the game and against quality teams.

    Norv hasn't driven this defense into the gorund as much as manusky has. We weren't a #1 caliber team last year as yardage indicates but we sure played better when it counted.

    Succession of draft screwups = slow defense + inadequate front 7.
    I'd put this more on AJ than Norv. That said, I'm not sure why every DC under Norv talks a big game, then goes vanilla.

    ^ Sort of proves my point that the defense in SF is a direct result of the players making the plays, and not necessarily because they are being coached by Manusky...

    ummm...so tell me again...how do we prove that Turner and Rivers are working well together based on the Cheifs game?

    Mister softee hat is a nice touch. Don't forget the granny glasses either.
    And what about TC and RR? They should all be having a vanilla get together.

    Just a thought .... maybe they buy into the talented roster part, then get here & realize what they really have to work with?

    I think everyone is part of the Chargers woes. From Spanos down to the players. No gaps in between.
