    Feeling bad for the guy doesn't mean you can't take pleasure in his departure.

    All i'm saying is that i'd feel very ****** if I've been coaching for that long and got so close that many times, but never won it...even if a lot of the blame belonged to myself.

    I just figured he was like most liberals who can complain but have no alternative plan or in this case, no opinion on who the coach should be..

    No worries, its always good to shake L about every now and again. With his luck at betting you might even get some good change. But then again, his betting gives him the money to hire thugs like me to lock you in the ACF...:icon_twisted:

    I don't know if Shelmon has signed his OC contract. He is still listed as the RB coach on the website coaching link. Also interesting is that neither coach that Marty hired is listed, and Marty's name and resume have already been deleted.

    well all the pressure is on AJ so if the chargers dont make the playoffs or get bounced in the 1st round again. will you all start calling for AJ's head or will everyone just give him a free pass.

    Wow........ I wake up to this news. Amazing.

    First impressions

    1. I'm happy Marty is history (always thought, like Brees, he would never be able to get us where we want to go).
    2. I just hope the timing doesn't bite us in the ***.
    3. Let's hope AJ has a 'plan'.

    OK so we had more wins in the last 3 years than we ever had in a 3 yr period say, but he is a big game loser period. I truly believe nice guy and all that he might be, he is a spoofer. You just have to look at his press conferences where he waffles on but says nothing. It also became clearer as the season went on that he was a complete passenger when it came to gameday. Cam and Wade worked sunday, Marty was a spectator like the rest of us.

    Go AJ go get us a coach with some fire in his belly who will use this massively powerful team annihilate all in front of them, take no prisoners and give LT what he deserves, a ring.:tup:

    A.J. had to know that meddling with Marty's choice would stir the pot...

    Yeah, but AJ insists on having some input on coaches. I think he's earned it. He's the reason we got Wade.

    Sometimes the GM and President need to step in. If Marty was really going to hire Kurt over those other candidates, he needed to be overruled.

    No matter who the next head coach is the Chargers will be considered real contenders. With Marty as the coach, they could be 16-0 and still have no credibility going into the playoffs just on that fact alone.

    I agree 100%

    but I think that this is what A.J. was waiting for. to fire marty after a 14-2 season requires more than a playoff loss. it requires something like losing you coordinators and then trying to hire your brother...:yes:

    A.J. knew that if he pushed Marty on this he would take a stand.:yes:

    now...who is the [​IMG] choice for HC?

    I don't give a rat's *** why Marty is down the road, AJ better have a plan and a clue. He wants this team to be his signature mark in the NFL, the team that AJ built. He should go with new blood, No Tuna, No Hair, they suck ***. Go with Chow, Cottrell and Shelmon perfect blend and balance and let it grow.:bolt2:
