Schottenheimer isn't giving up on the San Diego Chargers

    Are you !!!

    Marty Schottenheimer is an optimist by nature, a man who largely has relied on the power of positive thinking in winning 200 regular-season games over 21 seasons. So it's not surprising that, as miserably as the team he coached to a 14-2 record in 2006 has looked thus far under his successor Norv Turner, Schottenheimer isn't giving up on the San Diego Chargers in 2007.
    "I really think that they'll be OK," Schottenheimer said Tuesday from his home in Charlotte, N.C. "It's a good football team, and they've only played three games. The margin between winning and losing is so small; that's what makes the NFL so great. It's a long season, and I really do think they'll get it together."
    I think Marty was holding laughter inside as he said this, mindful that the man who fired him, general manager A.J. Smith, is getting his comeuppance on a weekly basis. But if Schottenheimer truly is sincere in this belief, then like fictional San Diego newscaster Ron Burgundy, I must humbly suggest that we agree to disagree.
    Right now, they're atrocious.

    Never give up...............................

    This is essentially the same team as last year and the team is not atrocious, just the game plans thus far, and the lack of original thinking by the coaching staff, despite the hightly touted innovations, tweeks and new wrinkles that were bandied about since the mini camps.

    What else would you expect him to say?

    Though I'm sure he'd like to see good things happen for the players. Just not for AJ.

    Michael Silver is an asshat. We lose a close game to an undefeated teamon the road, and we're "actrocious"? That makes absolutely no sense.

    Anyone else think it's kinda fuk'd up to be interviewing Marty about the team that fired him? And honestly, do we even care what MS has to say about it?

    i don't care what Marty thinks about our Bolts, in fact, I don't give a **** what anyone else thinks. I know, I will be a Bolt fan no matter how bad it gets. God willing and the River don't rise, I'll see a Lombardi in San Diego. :bolt:

    I think that it's stupid that, after just three games, people are already saying the Chargers suck and won't get better. Just sit back and wait! Three games! Wait till it's been 8-9 games to actually say that they suck!

    so what if i liked him as our head coach !?! :icon_twisted:

    moving on .. i dont plan on giving up so lets just slam this door shut and make sure we introduce smash mouth football to the entire National Football League !!!

    This is exactly what Marty envisioned when he finally got his walking papers. He got in his car, smiled, and made one wish: "Please, God... let Gawd's team stumble, fall, and trip all over themselves so that I may be seen as a Martyr... Yeah... Marty the Martyr... I kinda' like the sound of that!!"

    Fuc Marty. He's a doosh.

    I bet he smiled the same way when he poured salt on snails when he was a kid.
