    OK, so farg the Chargers, their season is over, sick of talking about the softcocks actually.

    Who has "what" happening during the PO's ????.......................should be a Bewt, I personally can't wait for it to start up.

    The Sexy-Texy's certainly didnt help their cause by dropping that last one to Indy and Cincci will be NO pushovers either, they have found some form at the pointy end of the season.

    4 really tough games to forecast this weekend ............... Really looking forward to the rematch of the Pack/Minny.......... that should be a ballbuster, though I do fancy the Pack at home.

    Indy aren't without a chance against the Ravers either .................... Luck has done everything asked of him thus far and Baltimore arent as good as past years, wouldnt shock me in the least to see Indy pull this one out.

    Man, that win by the 'Skins was something else ......................... and they get to play the Hags at Home too, thats big.

    Would love to see a 100% fit RG III go against that Hag "D", but he sure did look gimpy on the run against the Gals ........... doubt he gets away with that against this "D" though, but would love for them to win again all the same.

    No way I'm reading through all that blather, so I'll just say, I beg to differ. ;)

    Oh, by the way, I've been fighting a cold all weekend, so no bubbly for me. Luckily, I hate champagne.

    Perhaps, since I certainly haven't given her the time of day. Fizzy stuff is not to my taste.

    Norv Turner's standing ovation


    The meeting started like any other.

    Inside the team room at Chargers Park, Norv Turner stood before his players — technically, at this point, his former players — and spoke about the game the day before. He announced the recipients of game balls.

    One for quarterback Philip Rivers. One for wide receiver Micheal Spurlock.

    One for outside linebacker Melvin Ingram. One for inside linebacker Takeo Spikes.

    Then, Turner spoke about life, what they meant to him, and he gave his final assignments as their head coach.

    "There wasn't a pair of dry eyes in there," guard Louis Vasquez said.

    Turner made his final address Monday morning shortly after learning what he'd been expecting for weeks to learn. After six seasons, the last three of which ended promptly before the playoffs, he was fired.

    Players discussed it afterward with a groan, the same descriptors like "tough" and "very emotional" repeating one by one.

    "People like to throw out getting fired like, 'Yeah! Get him out of there!'" outside linebacker Jarret Johnson said. "We're talking about men's lives. We're talking about men's livelihoods, career changes. It's no small matter. It really brings to light how big of an impact the game we play, how much it affects so many people."

    Turner told them a personal story.

    There was a player whom he coached briefly on the practice squad, went by the name of Josh Whitman.

    He was a tight end who didn't have the NFL career that makes NFL fans remember. He appeared in four Chargers games in 2011, starting one. The only game stat to his credit is a 9-yard kickoff return that, almost certainly, he wasn't designed to return.

    Well, Josh Whitman is the athletic director at University of Wisconsin-La Crosse now, and he wrote Turner a letter, a letter he received last week on Christmas Day.

    "On the bottom of it, he said, ‘You changed my life,'" Turner said.

    That, he told his group, is what it's all about.

    Learn from each other. Make of the most this experience, how ever well known it is, however long it lasts.

    "The ultimate goal is Super Bowls," center Nick Hardwick said. "But along the way, you better be learning something about yourself, about being a man, about being a better man. Otherwise, you're missing the point."

    He told them to be professionals every day.

    He told them to remember him, remember how he coaches. They've seen it. The outside hasn't.
    When the next head coach arrives, show him how hard they work. Show him how they keep fighting. Show him what they've been taught.

    He told them how much he loves them, not as a coach does his players but as men do when they've sacrificed for one another.

    The meeting started like any other.

    It didn't end that way.

    The players, their eyes wet and reddened, clapped. They stood from their blue padded chairs. They voiced their support for the last time.

    Turner, a man not known for his speeches, received a standing ovation.

    I wouldn't expect you too, makes far to much sense for a Brightsider to comprehend..... :D ;)

    I have no idea how anyone can drink that cat piss, absolutely vile tasting crap.

    The Deev told me it was down around 37 F this morning and that her nipples were rather erect ....... :eek:

    Well, that made my New Years day, let me tell ya. :cool:

    Anyway, Happy New Years Lads .......................I wont go on some longwinded speech about "lets hope for a better year....etc etc.................cause I honestly dont see it happening.

    But here's to more good times in here at least and stay Healthy ...............Cheers !!!!

    The NFL isn't the Lifetime Channel. Maybe Norf and Oprah can get together and make a ladies sports network.

    We're talking about the U-T, not the NFL, but their network isn't much better these days.

    I'm certain thats how it all went down, been in many a lockeroom where the scene was identical.

    Very few times will you ever see players "happy" that a coach is sacked, there's a comraderie that just cannot be explained in detail to outsiders, that always exists between Coaches and Players, even moreso in a game as physical as Football.

    Ive said many many times, Norf has never been my favorite Coach, but as a person I've also stated, Im sure he is a quite an interesting and no doubt, affable chap who I would enjoy a chat with over a coffee or two.

    Unfortunately, the last thing Im looking for in a coach of my football team is whether or not he's Mr Nice Guy, which Norf obviously is, according to most of the players he has coached over the years.

    Well, we could have done without ever seeing that image ..............BUT, it must be said, they certainly do add a humorous element to the mix, that words can't do justice.

    Who you partying there with ???

    Still up after 2 am !!!! ...................you must have invited the entire Rockettes squad around to still be awake, you nasty Ol' thing.

    I'm gonna go ahead and put $20 on Holmgren being our next HC. All indicators point to it. Wolf Hired him in Green Bay from San Fran, where he was Walsh's OC... Making him a twig on the Gillman Coaching tree. It would be a pretty smart move IMO. He's respected, he's a winner, and he can actually manage the game as well. Who knows, maybe Deano finally figured out that winning is money, and Wolf is the guy to put winners in place?

    I just don't understand.........

    I went to chargers.com to look for season seats for 2013 yesterday!
    But, nothing for sale! The day Dean has the balls to fire Norv and AJ.... I can't get seats!
    I got my best set of season seats there and may have grabbed a pair if the right ones came up!
    Oh well, I might be better off waiting! Who knows maybe Matt Millen is on Deano's list! :cautious:

    I wouldn't be in a hurry PUMP ...................I have no doubt whatsoever you'll be able to get good seats, hell, the place was half empty by the end of the year.

    Oh and yeah, a job may help pay for those suckers too.

    Hey, with the way the great minds at Charger Park work, its not out of the question I guess, but then again, neither is probably Buddy Nix.....................they could well offer him the moon to return now that AJ has parted .........not that that was the reason he left ofcourse (wink wink, nudge nudge)

    Chargers denied in attempt to interview Broncos’ Matt Russell

    The Chargers were interested in interviewing Broncos director of player personnel Matt Russell about their general manager job.
    But the Broncos said no, and Russell sort of did as well.

    According to Kevin Acee of U-T San Diego, the Chargers went through the formal process ofasking permission, but the Broncos denied the request.

    But the Broncos’ denial may run deeper than simply not wanting to help a division rival (though that’s certainly enough of a reason).

    “I’ve got the best owner in sports here [Pat Bowlen] and the best boss in John Elway,” Russell said, via Mike Klis of the Denver Post. “I want to be part of something special in the state I love.”

    Russell played college football at the University of Colorado, and joined the Broncos in 2009 as their director of college scouting. Elway promoted Russell to his current role in May, when Brian Xanders was fired as general manager.

    So while Elway’s title might as well be “honcho” or “el jefe,” Russell is in a position not that far from the GM-but-reporting-to-John Spanos gig in San Diego, so he might as well stay where he’s comfortable, until a job with full responsibility comes along.
