Dean Spanos, You Are A Disgrace

At this point, it’s not even about whether Norv Turner gets fired.  But this “will they/won’t they” soap opera is pathetic.  First it was “No playoffs, no Norv.”  Then it was about whether they won their last 5 games.  Then it was “Detroit will decide his fate.”  I would have rooted against winning at Oakland […]


Raiders Still Suck

Bye bye, Jordan Todman.  We hardly knew you.  We literally hardly knew you since Norval never found a reason or way to use you.  Once Kevin Acee went on NFL Network in the middle of the season to try to explain what was wrong with Philip Rivers and mentioned the departure of Darren Sproles, the […]


Week 16 Rants And Ramblings

I’ve seen enough I don’t want to see any more. I can’t believe I’m referencing one of my least favorite Springsteen songs.  I know I swore to only talk about tomorrow’s game, but I almost threw up when I read Kevin Acee’s latest column about Dean Spanos reconsidering Norv’s fate based on what happens in […]


Fuck Norv, AJ and Dean

Yeah, that’s me at age 10.  My parents had gotten me some stuff when they went through San Diego.  It was 1981, the season of the “Missing Rings” Chargers but I have the look of a much more experienced Bolthead.  I’m sure you read this column by Kevin Acee today since a few of you […]


And Now, A Word From Our Sponsor

In the event you want to brave the stadium on Sunday, Average price for this game $116.52 — down 18% this week and well below the $132 average price for Chargers home games. Thanks to “Pick Your Price” from TiqIQ fans can make an offer of around $75 each for “3-star” tickets and save over […]


Norv’s Gotta Go No Matter What

“The past is behind us, the end hasn’t happened yet.  All that matters is now.”  That line comes from this season’s penultimate episode of Boardwalk Empire. I thought of that as I sat down to watch last week’s game.  For a while, those words seemed to serve me well.  I’d be lying if I wasn’t […]


Straight From The Heart, Why Can’t This Be Done?

Yeah, I’m referencing Van Hagar.  It’s nothing compared to the band with Diamond Dave, buttThey have their place–sort of like Survivor.  I won’t discuss Monday’s game, although I will end of watching.  Do I think that the Chargers could pull out a miracle and make the playoffs?  I don’t think it matters at this point.  […]


A Muppet-Themed Ode To The 2011 Chargers

Don’t ask me why Playboy Playmate Sara Jean Underwood is holding a Chargers helmet, let alone an Air Coryell era one.  But I thought it would counteract this kiddie-themed song parody for our pathetic football team. Why are there so many pickoffs and fumbles? and how can it all be Norv? That point’s irrelevant, guy […]


The Chargers Can Make Anyone Look Good…Except For Their Own Fans

It was a perfect capper to my Sunday that I couldn’t even comment on my own site.  The fact that Jay Cutler broke his thumb during Cason’s interception return is also a perfect summation of the Chargers.  Cutler shredded the Bolts, but the rest of the AFC West will get to face the Bears without […]


Are You Gonna Let Jay Cutler Be The Latest To Kick Sand In Your Face?

Yeah, I know that this week’s game has very little to do with that dour fuck of a quarterback, but I thought it would be a nice way to lead things off.  Cutler has been pretty well protected and hasn’t had make too many risky throws this season.  Sound familiar?  I didn’t think so.  By […]


Week 9 Ramblings And Rants

There comes a moment when you see your team defying the odds that reminds you why you became a fan.  You might not have seen anything that whole season to make you believe they could upset a superior opponent when it matters most, but when you realize “holy shit, they might actually do it” it’s […]


Week 8 Ramblings And Rants

In a season where it seems that something crazy happens each week, you’d think it would be the Chargers’ turn to surprise people in a good way.  How many times have we played teams (or watched others play teams) who desperately needed a win.  Those teams simply wanted it more.  It’s been a long time […]

Worst Day Ever? Don’t Forget What Team You’re On, Philip

Norv haters, you might get your wish.  I don’t see them recovering. After hearing the prerequisite “we won’t fumble the snap” jokes on Sirius, I hear Tim Ryan talk about when he was at USC, Rodney Peete did the same thing in the Rose Bowl 2 years in a row.  Did not make me feel […]
