    Is it because we have bad players? Is it because we have a bad head coach? Is it because we have a bad GM? A bad Owner? Could someone give be a reasonable answer? Cause I have no clue.

    You play how you practice, plain and simple. Every coach good and successful coach I have ever watched run a practice, harped on that constantly. There was no half a** just because it wasn't game time ( of course with the exception of killing the QB). If the kids slacked off, didn't complete plays, or looked lackadaisical, they payed for it. Up downs. Laps. Longer practice, extra practice.

    The Chargers reflect their lack of committed, hard practice time. They not prepared, mentally or physically. Some of that is on the players, but if the coaches don't make them accountable (and believe me if the kids I was around played like the Chargers, there would be repercussions come Monday afternoon) then the problems will only get worse and spread through the team. As we have seen over the last seven weeks.

    They are pros. They shouldn't need punishment beyond the fear of getting cut, but apparently, the Chargers must. However it is dealt out.

    Norv doesnt hold anyone accountable. That is where the rub is. I am all for firing him, but at the end of the season who would you promote to take his place? He is the head coach and the offenseive coordinator, that 2 shoes you will have to fill.

    O.K this thread seriously getting off topic. I thought we could discuss "Why we are so bad?" but now am seeing that all we want to do is insult each other. I for one will not partake in this. I don't like insulting people and I won't start here. If any mods are reading this Lock this thread up seeing as it could lead to some bans.

    I like how S.D. Love thinks he's being clever by throwing "my" words back at me when I was doing that to him. :lol:

    Your words, not mine buddy. You're the one who originally posted that request to someone in the same post you called him a "slimy little prick" in. :lol:

    because for some reason our players are forgetting everything they have learned since they started playing. Not putting 2 hands on the ball. Not playing through the whistle. For some reason, the fundamentals have been forgotten.

    I don't think anyone should be promoted. I think we should hire a guy from outside the Org, and let him hire his own staff rather than AJ telling him who he has to hire like he did with Cottrell

    Get some linemen who can play and everyone looks like a superstar. Even Norvs face.

    Very true. Passing on Oher to get English still drives me nuts.

    Instead, we drafted a guard from a college that never ran the ball, yet they try to sell us on a story about Norv wanting to run the ball?

    I am all for getting rid of Norv also. We continue to try and build through the draft, which is falling apart now, we do not bring in any big name free agents, and now the whole mess with VJ and MM. Things are not right top to bottom. We had a Ferrari out there, and they tried to race this season with used recapped tires which came apart on the first lap.

    the people around here do not eat beef they like sushi. They would rather draft a wide receiver or a defensive back. Someone that has some flash.

    Most of this board wanted a running back to ease the LT withdrawl symptoms.

    Where the hell was an alledged healthy Ryan Mathews after the first half ?

    Fans better start wishing for linemen and only linemen and leave the flash at the door.

    AJ didn't tell anyone to hire Cottrell. He hired Cottrell when there was still a HC vacancy.

    I agree with your base argument that the HC should choose the staff, though. But...why can't Rivera be granted that same permission?

    And, on the opposite extreme, Trumpy wants to field a team of 25 offensive linemen, 26 defensive linemen, and Philip Rivers.
