It's being reported that the Chargers owner has finally seen enough from these two, and will fire them both at the end of the season: http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2012/dec/06/smith-will-join-turner-out-door-end-chargers-seaso/
somewhere vincent jackson, shawn merriman and ladanian tomlinson are shaking their heads
Shawn Merriman robbed the Chargers blind. Once he got off the performance enhancers his playing ability declined dramitically. He refused to get a surgery in an offseason and then decided to get season ending surgery right after the first or second game. He set that team back a couple of years at least with his attitude and behavior.
No. The Patriots set the Chargers back on their heels, permanently...by beating them at San Diego, 24-21, in 2006. The Chargers, then coached by Marty Shottenheimer, were the best team in the NFL by far, that season. But...they gagged against the Pats: http://scores.espn.go.com/nfl/recap?gameId=270114024
In the aftermath of that game, the Chargers whined like spoiled children about how they were disrespected by the dastardly Pats...fired a coach who had led them to a 14-2 season, and replaced him with Norv Turner, of all people.
With the parting of disciplinarian Shottenheimer, the Chargers gradually came apart at the seems, to the point where they drowned in a sea of penalties, and turnovers.
