#imjustsaying
hahhahah

Im predicting right here, we dont win any games against teams over
.500. Three of our four wins are teams below us in the standing.
2 on KC, a 1-9? team.
And then the hapless waiders once again.

Funny how people are so critical on who we get as a coach, like we honestly think Spanos will make the right decision for the sake of the team. I try to be optimistic, but were lucky if we get a top teir coach.

Keep Norv?

It simply isnt going to happen. Under NOrv, we may very well lose thee next four games. I dont see anything more than one win in those games even if we have some improvement, (not likely under Norv)

The rest of his tenure in TB notwithstanding.

Sort of like the "Norv's time in Washington can't be held against him because he had a meddling owner in Daniel Snyder and no one could have a lot of success in that situation" line. Always brings a chuckle.
I give full credit for both the superbowl and his running the team into the ground aftereward

I don't either. I think best case scenario is 7-9 with wins against the Jets, Panthers, and Raiders.

I figure we'll be eliminated from serious playoff contention in the next couple weeks, and the Chargers always play their best when there's nothing on the line. So wins in those last 2 weeks I can see.

I just thought it would be funny. The CMB would splinter if we went 10-6 and missed the playoffs cause a 9-7 team got an automatic entry. It happened to us a few years go, the other way.

Would you take running the team into ground for a SB win?

I think so. I think I would.

One step further.

We finish with a record that gets us a wildcard.

We win our first PO game, then lose the following week.

Keep Norv and AJ? Let 'em build the OLine in the off season?

No, I still want them gone. But if that happens, they will be back.

Right on Cason
Right on Clary
Right for Chargers
When you are outside that many boxes, you wind up inside the inner box.

Of course.

I'd argue that that Bucs team was primed, this Charger team not so much. My issue with Gruden is that I don't trust him to make the right personnel choices to get us in the right direction and he'll likely demand lots of control
