    WTF is going on with the cHargers? Since Norv and AJ can't seem to get it figured out maybe you can... 2-4 against some of the weakest sisters in the NFL sdhould be sounding some alarm bells now that the heavy part of the schedule is coming around.

    I just don't see anyone trying to fire up the players on the sidelines, nor do I see a leader emerging on defense or special teams. It's like they are going through the motions of playing just so they can clock in on Monday morning and pick up their paychecks.

    I'm ready for Norv to be gone, he was hired to develop Rivers, thanks, now the pumpkin pie hair cutted ****** can get the **** out.

    Its time to change the culture of this team from the top down. I still want AJ around because he's great at finding talent, but we need to find a coach who can insipre men. Its a ****** shame there is still 10 games to sit through, I'll surely get my hopes up again if we managed to fluke a win out of N.E. or Indy.

    One will lead too the other.

    I can just imagine Norv walking out of the tunnel with the team last January saying...."ok lets go out, and uh, uh, give 110%, and play good, ok...dr...where's my pocket protector?"

    Why does AJ get a pass? Our depth is a joke and that's his job.

    Sadly, 6 is starting to make more sense all the time.

    L.T was right all along. But I picked Coaching just to give a point.

    I'd guess the player's are more concerned with what AJ thinks than the job at hand. There is no self-discipline on the field, it looks like they are just collecting paychecks. The player's need to be kicked in the balls and driven hard everyday, no more days off until they earn them. Norv's job is on the line, so should the player's be held accountable.

    Norv doesn't hold himself or any of his assistants accountable, why would he hold the players accountable?

    All I know is that LT and Cro are smiling right now! They appear to be in a better place right now.

    Wouldn't you be happy if you no longer had Norv as your HC?

    Since I'm not present at any meetings held within the Chargers compound, I don't have a clue as to what is said and done. Thanks for the inside info.

    The Chargers have lost to bad teams because they are even worse. There's no point in denying it anymore. It is a systemic culture of mediocrity that has infected every facet of the franchise. There is no way to eliminate it. I have tried to tell myself differently for years. I thought they had made a recovery, but it was a lie. LT was right. Heck, Eli was right.

    As a fan, it is my fate to suffer. But I know, I will die long before the Chargers will win a championship. I think, probably, the NFL will dissolve before they win a championship and football will be a long forgotten footnote in some history book. Either that, or the team will move to LA and the franchise will cease to exist. I am sure there are former Oilers fans or whatever, who have watched their teams suck for a lifetime and then someday, they just go away and you have nothing left. So sad, this is what the future holds.
