Most despised Chargers: Marlon McCree

The name Marlon McCree will make any Chargers fan who was supporting the team in the mid-2000s shutter. McCree has become a boogeyman of sorts in franchise history as he has the single most impactful "what if" moment in franchise history.

The 2006 Chargers were an absolute wagon. LaDainian Tomlinson had the greatest season that a running back has ever had as the Bolts were humming on both sides of the ball. The Chargers went 14-2 that season and were considered by just about everyone to be the best team in the league.

San Diego was proving that to be true against the New England Patriots with an eight-point lead in the fourth quarter. With just over six minutes remaining, it looked like the Chargers had the victory in the bag as Marlon McCree intercepted a rogue Tom Brady pass.

Instead of just getting down, McCree attempted to make a lateral cut and got the ball stripped. The Patriots would recover, go down and score, eventually take the lead and eventually win the game after Nate Kaeding's tying field goal missed.

It was a calamity of errors for the Bolts and McCree has become the figure head for it. If the Bolts would have won that game then there is a very good chance that they would have won the Super Bowl that season.

And worst of all, McCree showed no remorse for the mistake and if anything, justified his actions. Following the game, McCree said "I don't regret it because I would never try and just go down on the (ground). I want to score" (h/t San Diego Tribune).
