Well, I won’t say it hasn’t been fun. Because it hasn’t.
The loss to Atlanta gave San Diego its third consecutive loss. They are three games behind Denver with four to go. Is there a slim chance? Sure. Denver loses out, Chargers win out and make it to the playoffs at 8-8. Right. Hey, believe that and I have some stock to sell you.
Won’t happen. Don’t start the prayers and effigy burning. Save your energy for next year.
San Diego is done. Not from lack of effort or desire. I don’t see the 2008 squad as giving up. They were hit by key injuries, but under-performed and were out-coached throughout.
The off-season prognostication was a little lofty, but mostly warranted. They are better and should not be clutching to four wins at this point in the season.
This season is baffling. Such a completely wide open division. Seemed at times no one wanted to win it. Makes as much sense as Tim McGraw hosting Saturday Night Live last week with Ludacris & T-Pain. Not to mention, who or what is a T-Pain?
Chargers are showing up but coming just short. Such will be the tale of the season. Their heart is in it, potential is there, and that bodes well for 2009. Sadly, it’s just so far away.
So long, San Diego. Thanks for a job… done.
