It’s Christmas and the Los Angeles Chargers are going to be in the playoffs!
It sounds like fans have already received a great Christmas present but let’s be honest, after all the food has been eaten and all of the packages have been unwrapped, you’re always hoping there’s at least one more underneath the tree.
The Chargers have had a blessed season. Despite being dominated in the season opener and starting the season 1-2 following a tough loss to the Los Angeles Rams, they’ve turned the ship around and sit at 11-4 with one week left in the regular season.
They were gifted Derwin James as the No. 17 overall pick of the draft and he could very well end up being the Defensive Rookie of the Year.
They found a kicker who can put the ball through the uprights after having a virtual turnstile at the position for over a year.
They have a second-year coach who is quickly becoming one of the better sideline generals in all of football, one who isn’t afraid to take chances, as he did by going for a two-point conversion to beat the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium.
But like most people around the holidays, we want more. Whether that comes in the form of time with family, packages under the tree or days off from work, it has to be more.
So here are four things the Chargers should be asking Santa for if he drops down the chimney at team headquarters in Costa Mesa.
