Morning Dump

It is not fun watching the playoffs without the Bolts playing in them!!!!

The San Diego Chargers fired defensive coordinator Greg Manusky, and linebackers coach John Pagano will take over the job.  San Diego had the NFL’s number one ranked defense during the 2010 season while allowing 20 points per game under defensive coordinator Ron Rivera, who left the team following that season to be the Carolina Panthers head coach.  Manusky was hired after being the San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator from 2007-2010.  San Francisco had the NFL’s 25th ranked defense in 2007, the 13th ranked defense in 2008, the 15th ranked defense in 2009 and the 13th ranked defense in 2010.

Even if Vince Young hadn’t dubbed the Eagles the “Dream Team,” expectations were extremely high for the most active organization in free agency.

LaDainian Tomlinson, one of the greatest rushers in NFL history, admitted in a radio interview that the thought of retirement has crossed his mind.

Chargers outside linebacker Antwan Barnes bumped an official in Sunday’s regular-season finale. That was a big mistake.
