    Thank Steve Ortmayer, who came from Oakland, for that one. He systematically destroyed the Chargers franchise by trading away all the good players, little by little.

    I think that dikweed Steve Ortmayer's final straw in the Chargers dismantling was firing Coryell midseason. That caused Fouts to retire a year later, realizing he had no more good players to work with.

    A year later, Ortmayer resigned as the Bolts GM and suspiciously went back to the Raiders.

    That he's not in there continues to astonish me. :icon_huh:

    I know people will point to his never winning the Super Bowl, but his contributions to the modern passing game should override that. After all, Barry Switzer won a Super Bowl, and I doubt anyone considers him a better coach than Coryell.

    Not to be in the HOF is a crime. Was a true revolutionary.
