    SAN DIEGO ---- It's a category in which the Chargers have made a dramatic turnover for the worse. "We have to do a better job of taking care of the football," coach Marty Schottenheimer said, sternly. "Our (turnover/takeaway ratio) is minus-three; that is not acceptable for our football team. A year ago at this time, we were plus-eight. We got to fix that, and that is the No. 1 priority."

    It always has been with Schottenheimer, especially when he roamed the Kansas City Chiefs' sidelines. From 1989-98, Schottenheimer's Chiefs paced the NFL with a plus-99 turnover ratio and led the league during the 1990, '92 and '95 seasons. From 1990-95, the Chiefs set an NFL record by being plus-10 in six consecutive seasons.

    But the Chargers are struggling this year after finishing last year at plus-15, which was third best in the NFL. At minus-three, only 13 teams are worse, with only two ---- the Redskins and Patriots ---- being over .500.</blockquote>
