The San Diego Chargers ranked 16th in PFT’s preseason power poll, due largely to the fact that we’ve grown tired of their perennially underachieving act. It seems like every year the Chargers are a popular Super Bowl pick, and it never fails that they come up short.

SAN DIEGO (CNS) – The Chargers announced Tuesday that fans will be able to vote for the next inductee into the team’s Hall of Fame for the first time.

Folks covering the team were convinced late last season that coach Norv Turner and G.M. A.J. Smith were on the outs in San Diego. After a 4-1 start, the Chargers dropped six straight games in October and November. While they closed strong with victories in four of their final five, owner Dean Spanos’ January 3 announcement that Turner and Smith would be retained was something of a stunner.
