    In late November I wrote a letter to Dean Spanos. I outlined my frustration as a Charger fan and my desire for not only a coaching change but a new GM as well. On December 2, 2011 I received the following response:

    "Thank you for caring about the Chargers and taking the time to write. I completely understand your concern about our current record. Losing hurts, particularly after so many fine seasons.
    Once the final game has been played, we will evaluate everything and everyone here at the Chargers, including myself. And I vow to make the necessary decisions that are in the best interest of the Chargers and our ability to win for you and all Chargers fans."

    Again, I appreciate your comments and thank you for writing.

    Sincerely
    Dean A. Spanos (accompanied with a blue ink signature)

    I think the flood gates have opened and I hope Mr. Spanos is genuine.

    I thought this the case until I saw the signature in blue ink.

    I would not be surprised if he wrote you personally. I remember back when I was posting at the UT he came on there and responded to one the people there asking questions.
