They’re baaaaaaa’aaaaaaack!

The Chargers just announced that they will both be back.  Like it or not, that’s the deal.  Get ready for another maddening season in 2012!  The Bolts better win the Super Bowl next year!  Jesus, what a mess.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results.  Holy crap!

I’ve been in San Diego my whole life.  I’ve never seen outrage like this directed towards any of the sports franchises.  If AJ didn’t act like such a pompous prick at every opportunity, he would have plenty of job security… or at least enough for another year.  San Diego is not tough to figure out… Be cool, relax, get your shit done, enjoy; wash, rinse, repeat!  People in San Diego just don’t like nor want to deal with Pricks.  We strive for excellence and happiness!  I’m sure you Boston pricks are laughing because you could give a shit about being happy or having warm fuzzy feelings… that’s what living in a hell hole does for your psyche; You do have Scoreboard though… and AGON!

I digress… AJ, don’t let the door hit you in the ass!

PARIS: Time for Spanos to give Smith the boot

Great article Jay!  Thanks!

PARIS: Time for Spanos to give Smith the boot.

If Chargers president Dean Spanos fires coach Norv Turner and general manager A.J. Smith, might he try to lure former Pittsburgh Steelers coach Bill Cowher out of retirement? Associated Press file photo

AJ Smith fired?

At 9:57AM on 12/1/11, XX1090 reported that AJ Smith has cancelled his end-of-year press briefing.  Does this mean that the Spanos family has heard San Diego in regards to terminating the volatile GM?  We can only speculate at this point, but why else would a pro-football GM cancel his end of year press conference?  It might just be that he’s afraid of getting stoned at season’s end, but this seems like the most plausible explanation.

Bill Cowher to Chargers Rumors!

Please, for the love of everything holy… Let this be true!

Is this a face the Chargers need or what?  I feel like every Bolt fan in San Diego has had this look on their face for the past 5 years when the season came to an end.

“Good morning,

All (good) stuff today:

Have picked up two strong, separate rumors, one on the West Coast and the other on the East Coast that Bill Cowher could be the next coach of the San Diego Chargers. It has everything he wants: A team with talent, a quality quarterback and an owner who will allow him to bring in his own management people. A bonus: His eldest daughter, now married, lives in Los Angeles. Of course, San Diego GM A.J. Smith will have to go and someone Cowher knows would take over that job. Cowher loved quarterback Philip Rivers before the 2004 draft and there the Steelers might have drafted him instead of Ben Roethlisberer if he were not picked before them.”

The Fantasy Community chiming in on the Chargers woes…

• In a world where fumbles and injuries don’t exist, Ryan Mathews(notes) is King. The maddening San Diego back has nine fumbles on just 345 pro touches, and he’s missed time due to injury in each of the last five seasons — two at San Diego, three at Fresno State. This is the very definition of unreliable, friends. You can’t hitch your offense up to a back like this, not in the current form.

I do believe you can cure a back of fumbling, though — look at what Tom Coughlin did for Tiki Barber. But I doubt the solution to the Mathews Matrix is currently on the San Diego coaching staff. If the Chargers don’t completely clean house before the 2012 season, it’s an insult to all of San Diego. (While you were reading this paragraph, Norv Turner wasted a couple of timeouts, then looked up at the sky with that “where did I park my car?” puzzled look on his face.)

Mike Tolbert(notes) should see an increased role down the stretch (against a mixed bag of rushing defenses), but the Chargers know he’s really not suited to be a featured back. Assuming Mathews is back in town next year, look for the club to bring in a significant runner to challenge him for the starting gig. Players with multiple-year injury histories don’t turn into Iron Men overnight. (The McFadden Youth is solemnly nodding along.)
