    Best move: The situation was untenable. Even though the Chargers had a 14-2 record and won the AFC West, coach Marty Schottenheimer and general manage A.J. Smith could not get along. Smith made the tough decision to fire Schottenheimer and bring in easygoing Norv Turner, who brings in a ton of offensive creativity. If Turner can command this team with aplomb the Chargers should be alright.

    Worst move: Letting Donnie Edwards go to Kansas City could lead to a road of regret by the Chargers because he was aggressive and an effective leader. Veteran wideout Keenan McCardell was slow and not very strong, but he made a career of making big plays and holding on to poor throws.

    My team did just fine thanks...

    As I said in an earlier post...My only concern is that we lost two ILB's...But Cooper has played there a lot and MW, should do just fine.

    the best move I think was actually re-signing Dielman, he'll be an important part of this OL for a long while

    I agree w/ Senor Ant. Best move was Dielman. AND getting rid of Donnie. Addition though subtraction. The D just got stronger.

    As aggressive as a chihuahua. About as tough as one too.

    Getting Dielman back was quality, but their best move was still getting rid of Marty. Another good one was not going out and wasting cap space on people they didn't need. Standing pat will do wonders for the attitude of the players and keep the chemistry ph positive.
