Although in that 1978 season, Prothro retired in September (if you believe him) as he said he was planning on retiring at the end of the season. One of the losses that sent him out of the game? The Holy Roller.

The Chargers also managed to lose a game against the Packers when they recorded 10 sacks. How do you lose when you have 10 sacks? 11 turnovers will do the trick.

It's pretty rare and that was before the Spanos regime.

What is with the hate from you ?


A losing record will cause change in HC, say 1-5 or so and he is toast.

We've already seen what McCoy can and can't do... Same for Pagano. Don't forget Spanos and TT... Its ridiculous that PR does not have an all-star oline by now.

Fire them all... Start over (again).

Not too sure about the burn the building down approach......

McCoy is clearly the weak link.....the others might flourish with solid leadership from the HC.

TT had his best draft this last draft.....


I am all for losing anyone named Spanos in the decision making chain, but it isn't going to happen, no matter how many bad decisions.

You gotta appreciate a French Canadian hockey fan who is absolutely certain that a Southern California football coach sucks, and that every person named Spanos sucks, too.

Especially when the same French Canadian tells us how the Montreal Canadiens are the marvel of excellence -- even though they haven't won a Stanley Cup since the Bronze Age.

Your Favoriteness, I warn you against letting such insolence go unpunished. Such vocal rebellion can have serious consequences, Your Favoriteness.

Soon, all the peasants will want to voice their displeasure with their lot in life. Is it Your Favoriteness's fault that they know nothing but how to steer an oxen through the Royal fields? That their life's work consists of cutting Your Favoriteness's wheat when ready?

May I suggest slapping him in the stocks?

Perhaps, a swim in the moat with some cement sandals?

Maybe he can be put to better use as a target for the Royal Infantry's archers, and their flaming arrows?

What is thy bidding, Your Favoriteness?
