Philip Rivers: A True San Diegan

February 9, 2017

The first round of the 2004 NFL Draft was one to forget for San Diego sports fans. Prior to the draft, and after being ordered by his daddy, Eli Manning decided that he would not play for the San Diego Chargers even if they drafted him. The Chargers did what the Chargers do, and chose to draft Eli anyway. Eli stood at the podium, looking like an upset seven-year-old who…

Phil Mickelson Insults San Diego Charger Fans

January 28, 2017

Although Phil Mickelson is one of the most beloved athletes in San Diego history, he was caught up in some bad press last week at the CareerBuilder Challenge in La Quinta, California. When asked about the Chargers recent relocation to Los Angeles, Mickelson said he wished “the people in San Diego loved them the way I do and fought a little harder to keep them… What’s disappointing to me is…

Would you Support the SoCal Chargers?

January 20, 2017

It comes as no surprise that the San Diego Chargers once again dropped the ball when it came to doing the right thing. The Chargers’ owner is a douche bag, we all know that. There is no debating that fact. There is no “family” feeling among Chargers fans and players, and the all-mighty dollar has always ruled since the Spanos family took over the team in 1984. Countless players were…

The Chargers ARE Dead to Me

January 15, 2017

  It is said that a writer should never write while feeling emotional. It’s been over 24 hours since the Chargers announced they were leaving San Diego and making the trip up Interstate-5 for Los Angeles. I said I would put my thoughts into a written piece about yesterday’s events. I spent the day reflecting on what had happened, and looking back on all the years I’ve spent supporting the…

Four Quarters & The Hail Mary That Wasn’t

January 15, 2017

  It is a beautiful day here at Balboa Stadium. The sun gleams off the faces of locals, interested to see what this new franchise here in America’s Finest City has to offer. As head coach and general manager Sid Gillman leads his team onto the field, fans stand and cheer, aroused by the anticipation of this so-called “American Football League.” Finally, it’s time for kickoff. It’s a decent return…

There Is No Longer A “Next Year” for This Former Chargers Fan

January 14, 2017

  It was September 1978. I was turning 11 and starting 6th grade. As my grandmother and I came out of the grocery store one day, we passed by those little machines full of gum, candy, and various trinkets. Although I had always liked them, and never failed to miss an opportunity to beg a penny off her for a gumball, or a dime for a handful of Boston Baked…

Why This Hurts (Goodbye San Diego Chargers)

January 12, 2017

My largest challenge today is to not exaggerate. Literally my first thought when I went to write this column was that I would be bleeding onto the paper (keyboard). Then I thought that was too strong. But that’s how I felt and how I still feel. Maybe I’m going a little too far with the metaphor, but at this point I’m not sure I care. I disavowed the Chargers a…

Bringing Back Melvin Ingram Should Be Top Priority for Chargers

January 11, 2017

The 2016 season was just a mess for the San Diego Chargers and their fan base. The constant injuries and inept coaching were just the issues fans had to deal with on the field. The stadium fiasco is in full form at the present time and the future of the Chargers in the city of San Diego is still very much in doubt. Despite all the drama, the business aspect…

Joey Bosa’s Rookie Season Was Productive

January 7, 2017

Last spring, the Chargers had the 3rd overall pick in the NFL draft and many pundits thought San Diego would pick either Ronnie Stanley or Laremy Tunsil. But Tom Telesco and the Chargers’ front office ended up drafting Joey Bosa from “The” Ohio State University. The former Buckeye had a stellar college career as he ended up with 26 sacks and 51 tackles-for-loss during his time in Columbus. When he…

The San Diego Chargers “Can’t Call It”

January 4, 2017

Week 17, January 1, 2017, was potentially the San Diego Chargers‘ “last” contest in San Diego, one year after going through the same song and dance in 2016. Even Philip Rivers made comments about it not being quite the same as before. I don’t disagree with him after attending both games as a fan. Personally, I didn’t allow it to destroy me like it did in 2016. I also wasn’t…

January 4, 2017

We are no more than a week into the San Diego Chargers‘ search for a new head coach after Mike McCoy proved unable to get the job done over four disappointing campaigns and was consequently let go following the Bolts’ final game of the 2016 season. With the rumor mill already spinning faster than many can keep up with, the search is beginning to offer a truly dizzying array of possibilities for…

A Mike McCoy Eulogy for the Former Chargers’ Head Coach

January 3, 2017

The San Diego Chargers find themselves searching for a new head coach after another dismal season. This team had the talent to make a playoff run and even a run at the division. The AFC West was one of the toughest divisions in the NFL this season. Instead, the Chargers finished in last place with a 5-11 record, four games behind the third place Denver Broncos (9-7). The team under-performed….
