    SAN DIEGO ---- Martyball, in the lexicon of sports terms, is considered a negative among Charger fans.

    Most think it refers to head coach Marty Schottenheimer's penchant for being conservative with his play-calling, usually by running the ball rather than airing it out.

    Some go so far as to call him "Coach Roadblock" because, under his guidance, the Chargers have not won a playoff game.
