    What if the reason we've heard nothing is that AJ is lobbying to fire Marty and Dean doesn't want to? Remember there was a time when Dean sided with Beathard over Ross. Could that be entering Dean's thought-process now? And if Dean ends up having to choose one or the other who do we keep?

    I gotta stick with AJ as this is the best team we've ever had.

    It's going to be a busy offseason and I pray that AJ signs a FA stud at WR.

    we've been thru this before, AJ will not sign any big free agents, they might play well, but will not be considered studs or big names

    I think we reconstruct Martys contract until December 31st 07' then Let Cam Cameron take us through the playoffs without Marty's playoff curse. LOL!

    I just realized AJ's master plan.... Dean and AJ both wanted to fire Morty last year and said "hey, let's keep him one more year and go 14-2 and then trade him to some ****** franchise desperate for a proven regular season winner for tons of compensation".

    Morty to the lions for three 1sts :abq1:

    Marty agrees to step down?

    More like Marty gets traded, we get comp and we pick up half of his 3M salary for the final season of his contract.

    hmmm.....let's see....

    A) Fire the playoff choke.

    B) Fire the guy who has built the best talented Chargers team to step onto a field? (That I have seen play. 79 & 80 squads come close).


    Answer: A

    It would be a mistake to choose Marty over AJ...probably equal to the mistake of choosing Bethard over Ross.

    And another factor, aside from AJ's apparent skill as a GM, is at Marty's age how much longer is he even going to want to coach.

    NO NEWS IN SAN DIEGO

    The Chargers have yet to fire coach Marty Schottenheimer.

    But they also have yet to declare that he'll be back in 2007.


    We've confirmed that no press conferences are planned by the team for Tuesday, which means that there is nothing to formally announce. Yet.

    The fact that there has been no statement from the team strongly implies that no decision has been made. Though it can be inferred that the absence of a declaration that Schottenheimer has been fired means that he'll be the coach next season, the rampant rumors and speculation regarding his future cries out for a definitive statement as to his status, one way or the other.

    Many league observers expect Schottenheimer to be fired. Whether he deserves to be is a separate issue.

    So if AJ announces tommorow that he will keep Marty as coach, will you guys start hating on AJ? Or will you back him on his decision?

    MARTY, A.J. MEETING TUESDAY?

    A reader tells us that there are reports coming out of San Diego that Chargers G.M. A.J. Smith and head coach (for now) Marty Schottenheimer will meet on Tuesday.

    It's unlikely that they'll be bowling or fishing or doing anything that two people who, you know, like each other might do.

    John Czarnecki of FOX Sports reported last week that Schottenheimer would be fired if the Chargers lost on Sunday at home to the Patriots. The unlikely defeat, in which the Chargers arguably outplayed the Pats in every aspect of the game expect the one that actually matters, featured blunders from the players and from the coach.

    But will you have the same faith in Marty as AJ will have to have for him next year?

    I will back A.J. if he keeps Marty.

    A.J. has something up his sleeve because we all know, A.J. wants to roast Marty's nuts.
