NFL Week 13: There’s no time like the present.
Dear Spanos family,
Just get it over with and fire Turner and Smith. Let the rest of us and most importantly, your players, move on with their lives. In a season when the Chargers were televised in my location more times than they have won this year, it’s been an exercise in slow, painful torture watching the team crumble like grandma’s apple pie topping.
Not only has Smith shown himself unable to hold on to the talent he finds, turning the Chargers into a development team for the rest of the league, but Turner’s play calling in recent games has gotten so conservative as to be stupid. You’d think he was worried about his job. Yes, it’s obvious he is.
So dump both of these guys posthaste so the pressure is off and a new coach can get in the door, start assessing, and start changing players attitudes before we lose any more of that talent. This is my sad Chargers fan wish for the holidays.
This letter is being sent to Santa next. A new coach in powder blues is high on my Xmas list, right under World Peace.
Disgruntled Charger Girl
I was shocked to see that someone doesn’t blame Norv Turner for the slow steady decline of this team since 14-2. In the spirit of fairness, and hey, to have a hearty laugh, read this dissenting opinion from a Turner apologist. This guy barely discussing the history of the team as a problem.
Seahawks over Eagles WIN
Ravens over Browns
Steelers over Bengals
Bucs over Panthers
Bears over Chiefs
Jets over Redskins
Texans over Falcons
Raiders over Dolphins
Saints over Lions
Bills over Titans
Broncos over Vikings
49ers over Rams
Cowboys over Cardinals
Packers over Giants
Patriots over Colts
Chargers over Jags (But on the other hand, this game should be a dead giveaway except for Turner-Smith).
Can I say that Thursday Night games really screw with Fantasy picks in a way I didn’t expect. You have a high caliber player who’s coming off injury but you often won’t know until Sunday morning if he’ll play. Thursday night games, even if you don’t have a single player, kills your ability to make those adjustments.
Learned a lot this season. Suffering a lot from my Chargers. But there’s always a chance.
