Hi-ho hi-ho, it’s back to work we go! SIGH!!! Let the countdown till a new head coach BEGIN!
SAN DIEGO — Eliminated from playoff contention and with their coach and general manager possibly headed for the unemployment line, all the San Diego Chargers can do now is try to ruin rival Oakland’s season and avoid their first losing record since 2003.
SAN DIEGO — Norv Turner’s latest press conference was a strange one. It was surprisingly short, with long gaps between questions from media members that seemed generally unsure of what to ask.
It will be a dizzying week atop the Chargers power structure, and the possibilities only keep getting more intriguing.
The first order of business for team president Dean Spanos is whether to retain General Manager A.J. Smith.
Dec 27, 2011 – The San Diego Chargers have been the class of the AFC West for the last decade with the addition of Philip Rivers as starting quarterback and the savvy drafting of A.J. Smith. However, Kevin Acee is reporting that changes might even be coming to the division’s powerhouse team as Dean Spanos, the owner, might clean house of both head coach Norv Turner and general manager A.J. Smith. Consequently, Smith might already have a new home with the St. Louis Rams, a move that might come with a head coach in tow with Jon Gruden being the new rumor.
Possible first-round picks: Alabama safety Mark Barron, Arizona State linebacker Vontaze Burfict, Alabama linebacker Courtney Upshaw, Stanford guard David DeCastro.
