Morning Dump: San Diego Chargers News Around the Web

SAN DIEGO — Coach Norv Turner said nobody from the San Diego Chargers used Stickum in a Monday night loss to the Denver Broncos on Oct. 15 or in any other game.

He also said it’s a towel, not a substance, being investigated by the NFL.

Nate Kaeding showed up for work Monday intending to start preparing for San Diego’s game at Cleveland on Sunday.

The Denver Broncos made it through their treacherous front-loaded schedule undeterred if not unscathed.

Of Denver’s 10 remaining games, just one is against a winning team, and that’s the reeling Baltimore Ravens, who don’t look so imposing with Ray Lewis and Lardarius Webb on injured reserve.

Obviously, the good people in Los Angeles are very different from you people in San Diego.

Or, as Bill Johnston, the director of public relations for the Chargers, put it in a recent blog to folks in San Diego: “What’s with you people?”

The Chargers fell apart last week against Denver despite suggestions now that they were using a sticky substance.

The Chargers returned to work on Monday, and has that ever sounded better?

After a week of marinating in some of the worst losses in franchise history, the team punched the clock instead of another wall

There is no minimizing the shame of the past week.

I proffer that a team that has never won a Super Bowl, has suffered its share of playoff meltdowns, essentially paid Ryan Leaf $12 million simply to be an embarrassment and during an eight-year stretch from the mid-1990s to early 2000s had the NFL’s second-worst record has never been more humiliated than it has in the preceding eight days

Perspective. When assessing the past week and where it ranks amid Chargers misery, you need perspective. For that, This Just In reached out to retired U-T scribe Jerry Magee, whose Bolts coverage dates back to leather helmets.
