So... Turner and Rivers both are in the last year of their respective contracts.
The classic game that explains issues with the Chargers would be Chargers vs. Bronco's.
24-0 at the end of the half... against Peyton and the Bronco's. The Chargers were looking clean and sharp.
After half time... 5 turnovers. Rivers throwing to people who weren't there (Meachem I believe it was... ran a route, Rivers expected him to turn, he didn't, and it was almost intercepted. This was after a quick audible, which obviously was misunderstood.)
Ryan Matthews back after his injury (Jackie Battle and Ronnie Brown doing terribly in his absence for the most part), fumbles repeatedly.
Gates' career is mostly done. Year 10, he's not performing.
Floyd, year 7, keeps getting injured.
Rivers... he and Turner can't seem to agree over whether or not they should wear pants. They are seen shouting at each other on the sidelines repeatedly.
What the hell is going to happen with this team?
Either a.) Rivers and Turner get their crap together, seeing as both of their jobs are on the line or b.) next year, they're both gone. Gates retires, Floyd becomes a b string or gets shipped off somewhere, Matthews gets injured and is on IR for a full season... we're going to have one hell of a mess on our hands.
The Chargers aren't exactly a high ticket team, but I had so much hope for these guys, just to see it fall apart (and see them shred my Fantasy games to pieces.... I spent too much on Matthews during my draft this year).
I also live in California, so my choices are Chargers or Raiders? Bleh.
Los Angeles *where I live* was talking about buying the Vikings... looks like that's not going to happen.
This is why I don't root for a team. I watch teams I enjoy watching. The Ravens (sigh Lewis), the Saints (sigh coaching), the Packers (sigh offensive line and injuries), the Chargers (huge mess!)
Some of the banner teams, the Patriots and Giants, just aren't as fun for me. Dunno why.
Anyone have any thoughts on what will happen in SD?
