John Butler built the franchise RIP. AJ was the pilot fish eating the scraps that fell from the sharks mouth. AJ drafted poorly in general, a few good picks, but mostly busts. And the marquee players he gets rid of, and they go on to playoff teams. Goodnight AJ.

its funny how sometimes the vivid memories are of what you missed. I never forgave my dad for taking his business partner to the KC game when speedy duncan returned an interception 100+ yards. i listened to it at home on the old stereo console. That really pissed me off.

Simpler time. When somebody was fast, they just called him Speedy!

I was at that game. The crowd was going crazy during that return - it was LOUD.

Here's the box score: http://www.pro-football-reference.co...6710150sdg.htm

He also had a 35-yard fumble recovery for a TD in the same game!

I see you were in the Marine Corps, as was my Dad. Thank you for your service Chargeroo.

Do you honestly think it's us fans having short memories? I am 39 years old I've been a fan for 34 years and in that time we have been to one SB in which we got blown out.

It's not about having a short memory it's about being tired of accepting mediocrity. And I hate to sound so blunt but hhen posters like you make posts like this, it's a perfect exams of how some fans have resorted to accepting mediocrity....all because we have a crappy history.

I have said it once I'll say it thousand more times....we are the Chicago Cubs of the NFL.....lovable losers

I'm not saying you. You've been consistent in the forums for a very long time. I like you am tired of the chargers losing. And the team playing mediocre. I admit I was super excited for this season. This has been disappointing to say the least. I look forward to the changes.

The Norv Turner era isn't the least successful... but it might just be the most painful that until this season it was "this team is better than this." The 9-7 and 8-8 playoff years together paint a grim picture. Especially in the horrible AFC West we should have been better then that. I know in the NFL you lose games you should win and win some you should lose but that many? When the team sucks and I know it... that is easier to cope with what is suposed to be a contender beating itself... something Norv's teams have been very good at.

Looking forward... as much as we have hated what has happened be it Norv or AJ a lot will depend on who we replace them with. There are plenty of teams that are looking up at the Norv Turner Era Chargers accomplishments because they didn't make the playoffs as many times, or at all (I think there are some teams in this category?), or haven't had drafts even as good as ours...

As primed as this team might be with some luck when you have players as old as we do (Johnson, Jammer, Phillips, Spikes, Hardwick, Gates etc) they will eventually become holes at some point soon. The holes will either slowly be dug with father time's shovel, or the free agency backhoe might drive it’’s machinery into the ground and pull them away leaving a large suddenly dug hole.

Out next GM might make even worse mistakes or might be a superstar... our next head coach might be a HOFer or might be among the very long list of coaches that fail and get fired.

Then there is simple dumb luck... and we have had a lot of bad luck beyond anyone's control in recent seasons.

This era hasn’t been a great one… but the OP is right saying it isn’t the worst either. If someone wants to say anyone is better than AJ/Norv plenty of teams would like to have a word with you. We need a change... hopefully it will be one for the better and not a dreaded time like listed above.

This is the first losing season i've had to endure. Really hope it doesn't evolve into an era. I don't see why a few fixes here and there wouldn't make us competitive for next year.
