    I remember back in the days when at the begining of the Chargers seasons we would hope for a non-losing record...

    I just realized that I am back there...

    LET GO BOLTS! 8-8 YOU CAN DEW ET!!!!

    It really wasn't that long ago. I don't think 8-8 is even a real possibility at this point.

    The goal of any franchise is to win a Super Bowl. All or nothing. Right now I will be satisfied with the highest draft pick.

    Unfortunately an 8-8 might tempt ownership to maintain the status quo. That is clearly unacceptable.

    We likely have to fall face down in order to get up and move forward.

    Why? Given AJs recent track record with round 1 picks, he will probably screw it up.

    So long as the number in the L column is less than or equal to 8 it is a real possibility.

    That being said, I'm not overly enthused about rooting for that. :roflmao:

    Because ownership has shown in the past that they're fine with 8-8 and missing the playoffs two years in a row by firing a HC who finished the year 14-2?

    Are we even sure that AJ will be making the picks?

    That's assuming AJ still has a job next April.

    Chances are good. The Chargers owe AJ and Norv a lot of duckets....

    When we finished 8-8 a couple of years ago, the Chargers played their typical strong late season football. We have yet to see them play 1 good game of football through 11 games.

    I don't see 8-8 the way this team is playing.

    My last name isn't Spanos so I have as much idea as to what the brass will do as anyone here, which is to say "none".
    Just making the point that a 4-12 or 5-11 type finish is going to be a much more powerful argument for change than 8-8. Take it for what it's worth.

    I highly doubt finishing 14-2 is why Marty was fired, lousy analogy and epic fail on your part.

    You're right.

    It's because AJ tells Dean Spanos what to do.

    I'm learning this in another thread. :roflmao:
