Thank you for the opportunity! I can't wait to be in San Diego and help this team compete for a Super Bowl!!!
Don't y'all want TWO teams in LA who have Super Bowl Rings? The Chargers don't have any. Keep em in San Diego.
Chargers can kiss the playoffs, Super Bowl, and kiss San Diego goodbye!
San Diego's stadium plan for the Chargers includes planning ahead for a future Super Bowl.
"San Diego was once a city where there was talk that the Super Bowl should be held here every four years". Oh.the days those were
Packers prevail against San Diego, 27-20, to stay undefeated. Green Bay is 6-0 for just 2nd time in Super Bowl era. http:…
Go to San Diego man, they will get you closer to the Super Bowl anyway. Not all about money.
Welcome to San Diego, Cant wait till you're doing this for the in the Super Bowl
1 positive if the leave San Diego is it would pretty much guarantee the Chargers will win the Super Bowl.
There's a Super Bowl ad for Turbo Tax I saw being filmed in San Diego. Thinking it was a Boston Tea Party theme.
The NBC Sunday Night Football promotions bus was on the USD campus earlier today. The bus was in San Diego to promote the Chargers' game against the New England Patriots. A long line of USD students and community members took turns going onto the bus. Among the items inside was the Vince Lombardi Trophy, which is given to the Super Bowl champion each year. Among those who took part were USD freshmen Owen Sullivan and Colin Whitney (pictured, left to right).
I'm not sure exactly when the winter meetings turned into an agent-fest. Or a free-agent-fest.But sometime between the Curt Flood verdict and the founding of the Scott Boras Corporation, the good old-fashioned blockbuster eight-player mega-trade at the winter meetings almost became an endangered species.Well, not this year. As pretty much the entire sport gears up for next week's annual winter meetings yakathon in San Diego, there's more talk about trade rumors than free-agent rumors, for the first time in years. Check out these comments from assorted general managers and assistant GMs in the past couple of days:From an AL GM: "There's a lot brewing, a lot of trade talk. I would expect next week to be busy."From an NL exec: "Have you seen the free-agent list? There are no bats left on the market. So if you want a bat, you have to make a trade."From an NL GM: "We could see a lot of trades. That's a definite possibility. There's been a lot of chatter."Of course, with virtually all of the prominent free-agen ...

...he does not get the benefit of the doubt like other players do since he plays in San Diego and has not won a Super Bowl
I hope are ready for this San Diego *** Whooping cause nobody tryna see ya hopeless *** in the super bowl this year
In 2018, the Super Bowl will be played in Minneapolis. San Diego's reaction? "Brrr."
I just booked my flight to San Diego in September to go watch our Hawks smash the Chargers in there house. Dang I can't wait. Super bowl champs baby. Lets do it again!!
Tiaina Baul "Junior" Seau Jr. (January 19, 1969 – May 2, 2012) was a linebacker in the National Football League (NFL). He was a 10-time All-Pro, 12-time Pro Bowl selection, and named to the NFL 1990s All-Decade Team. Originally from San Diego, California, Seau played college football at the University of Southern California (USC). He was chosen by the San Diego Chargers as the fifth overall pick of the 1990 NFL Draft. Seau started for 13 seasons for the Chargers before being traded to the Miami Dolphins, where he spent three years before four final ones with the New England Patriots. Seau retired from pro football after the 2009 season. A standout on San Diego's only Super Bowl team, he was later inducted into the Chargers Hall of Fame and the team retired his number 55. Seau committed suicide with a gun shot wound to the chest in 2012 at the age of 43. Later studies by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) concluded that Seau suffered from chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), a type of chronic bra ...
RIP Ralph Wilson. One of the original members of the "Foolish Club" ( the eight members, included Lamar Hunt who started the Dallas Texans before moving the team to Kansas City and becoming the Chiefs, formed the AFL and then merged with the NFL to give us the Super Bowl), Wilson invested $25,000 to start the Buffalo Bills franchise. The only surviving member is Barron Hilton (LA Chargers, later moving the team to San Diego after Jack Murphy, a newspaperman, helped him get a stadium built). That's right Paris Hilton's grandfather! Wilson's $25,000 investment is now worth $870 million, much more than a $10 million Barron Hilton sold his team for in 1966. (Since then the Hilton family has struggled.LOL!)
Bruh. come win a Super Bowl in San Diego
To the other side, AFC AFC West! Denver Broncos: Grade A Denver loaded up. Adding Talib, Ward and Ware on defense definitely jumps out as them understanding what it'll take to get that elusive Super Bowl. The Oakland Raiders: Grade B- Letting their LT walk was costly but with the defensive acquisitions of Tuck and Woodley, they made a better move. Making a couple more moves will continue to move them in the right direction. San Diego Chargers: Grade C San Diego didn't make many moves, but they didn't lose anyone either. Look for San Diego to remain quiet and get better through the draft. The Kansas City Chiefs: Grade D- The chiefs have been underwhelming to say the least. Most notable signing is Hussain Abdullah, while losing the left side of their line and Geoff Schwartz. Serious moves need to be made in the draft to continue the success seen last year. Projection: Denver: 11-5 San Diego: 9-7 Kansas City: 8-8 Oakland: 8-8
Brees signed a five-year, $100 million contract extension in July 2012 with the New Orleans Saints that included a $37 million signing bonus. Brees was rewarded for six Pro Bowl selections and a Super Bowl title since he joined the Saints in 2006. Brees has become one of the NFL's most successful pitchman with a dozen endorsement deals, including Nike, Procter & Gamble, Verizon Wireless, PepsiCo andWrangler. His foundation, Brees Dream Foundation, has contributed $17 million to charitable causes and academic institutions in New Orleans, San Diego and West Lafayette/Purdue communities.
At the Starr house in San Diego on Sunday, there was screaming during the Super Bowl when Malcolm Smith , a 2007 Woodland Hills Taft gradate, returned an interception of a Peyton Manning pass 69 yards for a touchdown.
For the first time in my life, my favorite team wins the Super Bowl! I rooted for the Buffalo Bills when I was a kid only to watch them lose 4 Super Bowls in a row. I got on the Andy Reid bandwagon and watched the Eagles lose to the Patriots. Since being in San Diego, I have become a huge Seahawks fan and I couldn't be happier!! Go 'Hawks!
The first time Jay Glazer landed a big Super Bowl scoop, he was in San Diego in a limousine headed to a Styx concert, drinking beer and surrounded by about ten women.

“They do a great job! The Super Bowl should move here permanently.” -Al Michaels, during ABC broadcast of 2003 Super Bowl in San Diego. Let’s Build The “Super Bowl” Here: Whether the Chargers stay or go, San Diego should be the home of the “Super Bowl”, a stadium specifically built for the purpose of hosting that event each year. It would be the NFL’s dream building, bought, paid for, and owned by the NFL, designed from the ground up for television, equipped with sky boxes, computer-ready seating, and every excess a football owner could want or imagine. Yes, the Aztecs would play there also. Yes, it would be rented for concerts, conventions, and political gatherings. But it would be their football showplace in a setting of year-round natural beauty, and a big and continuing source of local jobs. But The Super Bowl Is Always Held In Different Cities. The Owners Want it That Way, Right? Unless somebody comes up with a better idea that will make them more money. And that's what this proposal ...

Browns near Super Bowl Need one more after beating Colts Browns 38, Indianapolis Colts 21 Cleveland Municipal Stadium January 09, 1988 By Tony Grossi Plain Dealer Reporter Sixty minutes of football - and a victory - separate the Browns from their first Super Bowl appearance. Again. Yet, after turning back the stubborn Indianapolis Colts, 38-21, to reach the AFC Championship Game for the second season in a row, the Browns did little celebrating in their dressing room. "It was no big deal," said linebacker Eddie Johnson, who chewed out his defensive teammates at halftime. "There was some barking, but basically it was very relaxed. We expected to be here." Linebacker Clay Matthews described the post-game atmosphere as "reserved." Tight end Ozzie Newsome, whose 65 yards led nine Cleveland receivers, said the celebration "wasn't half as big as it was last year." The Browns will learn who stands in their way to Super Bowl XXII in San Diego this afternoon. If Denver beats the Houston Oilers, the Browns will play ...
NEXT on CBS: Philip River and the San Diego Chargers kick off against Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos at Mile High Stadium with Jim Nantz, Phil Simms and Tracy Wolfson calling it. Can Denver make it to the next round, or will San Diego upset their Super Bowl aspirations?
Trivia Time II: The last time the 49ers won the Super Bowl was in 1995 against the San Diego Chargers (both still alive in the playoffs). SF's team included Steve Young, Jerry Rice, Ricky Watters, John Taylor and Brent Jones.Who was San Diego's quarterback?
Saints-Chargers: Drew Brees and Philip Rivers would take center stage all week, with the rest of us getting to revisit the eventful quarterback decision San Diego made in the middle of last decade. After taking Brees with the first pick of the second round in 2001, the Chargers swung their high-profile trade with the New York Giants in April 2004, landing Rivers in exchange for Eli Manning. Brees continued to start for San Diego in 2004, taking the Marty Schottenheimer-coached Bolts to an AFC West title and a playoff berth. But then the Chargers slipped to a 9-7 non-playoff finish in 2005, Brees injured his shoulder in the season finale as free agency approached and San Diego turned the reins over, as planned, to Rivers in 2006. Brees signed with the Saints in 2006, won a Super Bowl in 2009 and has gone on to break a bevy of NFL passing records while making New Orleans a near-perennial playoff team. Rivers has had success in San Diego, but not on the same level as his predecessor. And if we got tired of h ...
Demand increases for Whisenhunt Posted by Mike Florio With five NFL coaching jobs open, one name continues to emerge on the various wish lists: San Diego Offensive Coordinator Ken Whisenhunt. At a minimum, the Lions, Redskins, and Titans are interested in talking to Whisenhunt. He’s now available to interview, with the blessing of the Chargers. But the Chargers have a game coming up on Sunday at Denver, and there are only so many hours that Whisenhunt can spare from his current job. At some point, the Chargers surely will say, “Enough.” The former Cardinals coach, who led the team to a Super Bowl in 2008, remains regarded as the favorite to become the next coach of the Lions, the only team with a franchise quarterback in place. And that’s a good thing for Whisenhunt, given that his most success in Arizona came with the franchise quarterback he inherited from the prior regime. Of course, Whisenhunt first had to realize that Kurt Warner would be a better option than Matt Leinart, a first-round p ...
ALL I KNOW ABOUT THE 'CHEFS' Since 1970 (when they last won a Super Bowl), the CHEFS are a dreadful 3-13 in the playoffs. Two of those wins came in the 1993 campaign, making them an astonishing 1-13 in all other years. And THAT lone remaining win was against the RAIDERS in 1991. Meaning that all three victories took place under Head Coach Marty Schottenheimer. You know, the one who couldn’t win the big games. Nothing here to be proud of, really… An astounding fact: since 1970, EVERY SINGLE TEAM in the old AFC West has been to at least one Super Bowl. Except for the CHEFS, naturally. *** Denver has been to SIX, winning two! And Oakland/Los Angeles has been to three, winning two. (San Diego and Seattle made one appearance apiece; neither won.) Another astounding fact: Pittsburgh has won SIX Super Bowls since 1970; San Francisco has won five; Dallas has won four; New England has won three. *** the expansion CAROLINA PANTHERS went to one (they lost). And I’m not even counting the Tennesse ...
The NFL Divisional Playoffs are set! It'll be New Orleans at Seattle and San Francisco at Carolina in the NFC, San Diego at Denver and Indianapolis at New England in the AFC. Who do you think will be in the Super Bowl?

Growing up as a Saints fan living in Mississippi sucked, but they still showed up every fall. I'd pretend to be guys like Aaron Brooks, Ricky Williams, Joe Horn, Donte Stallworth, and Deuce McCallister out in the yard. Then 2005 brought Hurricane Katrina and another terrible season and obviously it was time for a change... There were talks of the franchise leaving NOLA and moving somewhere above sea level in case of another natural disaster. Eventually, though, the decision was made to keep the Saints in New Orleans, and major changes were made to the coaching staff and roster. In came Sean Payton and Drew Brees who NOBODY knew what to expect from after a near career ending injury in San Diego. In the Saints return to the Superdome, they beat rival Atlanta Falcons 23-3 and bring some hope back to the city. 3 years later, with a city on their backs, the Saints beat the Indianapolis Colts to win the first ever Super Bowl for the city of New Orleans. Tonight, having never won a road playoff game, the Saints ...
Ken Whisenhunt, Offensive Coordinator, San Diego Chargers Whisenhunt, 51, spent time under Pittsburgh Steelers coach Bill Cowher, first as a tight ends coach, then as the team's Offensive Coordinator. He knows what it takes to be a consistent winner from his time in that organization. Following the Steelers Super Bowl win in 2006, Whisenhunt took over as Head Coach at Arizona and lead them to the Super Bowl in 2008. Whisenhunt currently serves as the Offensive Coordinator in San Diego, where he’s had a hand is resurging quarterback Philip River’s career and helping make the Chargers one of the more explosive offenses in the league
HEY DTOWN LIONS PICK ONE. ANY ONE. Ken Whisenhunt, San Diego Offensive Coordinator: It would be surprising if he isn't one of Mayhew's top candidates. The two were teammates in Washington in 1989 and 1990. He is primarily an offensive guy and has worked with both Ben Roethlisberger in Pittsburgh and Philip Rivers last season. He also has prior Head Coaching experience, running the Arizona Cardinals from 2007 to 2012 -- and taking the Cardinals to Super Bowl XLIII. If a coach can take Arizona to the Super Bowl, he could fit well in trying to take the Lions to the next level. SmithLovie Smith, former Chicago Bears Head Coach: Smith has all the characteristics Mayhew would want in a coach. He runs a 4-3 defense, which would fit well with what the Lions already have assembled. He has Head Coaching experience, having led the Chicago Bears from 2004 to 2012. He knows how to build culture as he has taken a team to the Super Bowl and would be a strong hire for the Lions. However, Insider Adam Schefter is reportin ...
I want Ken Whisenhunt, took the cardinals to the Super Bowl, made Kurt Warner young again, helped San Diego get to the playoffs. EXPERIENCE
Wow! What an exciting final day of the regular season in the NFL. it doesn’t get any better than yesterday with games with playoff implications going down to the wire. Aaron Rodgers is back and Green Bay is in the playoffs. I don’t see the Packers getting to the Super Bowl, but if I was a fan of any other team in the NFC, I would be afraid, very afraid! To its credit San Diego gets to the playoffs, but it really had a tougher time than expected against Kansas City. Kansas City was resting most of its players and still could’ve won the game. I don’t have any problem with what KC did by the way. If you clinch a playoff spot, you earn the right to do whatever you want. How about Miami? Buffalo and the Jets on your schedule to wrap up the season and you score just 7 points. Where have you gone Larry Czonka? I don’t see the Patriots getting to the Super Bow either.I just don’t trust that defense especially against a prolific quarterback. You either win the Super Bowl or you don’t and that’s the ...
So, the Dolphins reality is as follows. The Dolphins are fine. They did great considering that Brandon Gibson, Dustin Keller, Dimitri Patterson, R.J. Sanford, and 40% of their offensive line are all not playing due to injury or some personal issues. They beat half of the playoff teams. Tannehill was sacked over 50 times and still fell just shy of 4,000 yards in passing. If Hartline wasn't injured early today they would probably have won and advanced but not deservedly so. San Diego is the rightful 6th seed whether they get there or not. Even though we beat them. Miami should trade Cam Wake. Big value not needed. Not a fan of the coordinators but would keep them for continuity. The Dolphins won when Dimitri Patterson played and struggled when he didn't. The future is very bright. Super Bowl is near. Now Gooo Heat!
It's my favorite time of the NFL season. If the Bengals win and San Diego, Jacksonville, Seattle, Tampa Bay and the Titans lose, then the Bengals are in. If Detroit wins and the Raiders, Thunder, Bruins, and Raptors all win, then the Lions get a first round bye. If Denver shows up for their game, they are in the Super Bowl; if Peyton Manning agrees to host SNL again, they automatically win. If the Redskins win, no one cares, and the NFL inherits the BCS. If Bama wins the Sugar Bowl, they get a shot in the conference of their choosing. If Jimbo Fisher goes to Texas, then the state will secede from the union, form their own Oil Barons Bowl, play it at Jerry World for all eternity, and broadcast it on the Longhorn Network. If Lou Holtz reaches his hundredth birthday and still knows what year it is, he gets to create the Catholic Bowl. If Danica Patrick wins her next race, then she gets to choose who plays in the Super Bowl for the next three years. It's all quite simple.

BALTIMORE (AP) -- The best thing the Baltimore Ravens could do after being humbled by the New England Patriots was to box up the loss, cast it aside and immediately forget about it. Needing a victory to remain in the hunt for the AFC North title, the defending Super Bowl Champions came up with a dud of a performance and fell to the Patriots 41-7 Sunday. Baltimore committed four turnovers, yielded four sacks, fell behind 17-0 in the second quarter and gave up three touchdowns in the final 125 seconds. The rematch of last season's AFC title game was quite the mismatch. "You know, we're used to going out there and playing well when we need to when the playoffs are on the line," said Baltimore quarterback Joe Flacco, who threw two interceptions. "We come out today hungry and ready to go get ourselves into the playoffs or make that next step toward it, and we just didn't do it." The loss eliminated the Ravens (8-7) from contention in the AFC North and dropped them into a tie with Miami and San Diego for the fi ...
If Rex Ryan is fired at the end of the season, the New York Jets are sure to have the following names on their radar: 1. Darrell Bevell, Seattle Seahawks, Offensive Coordinator: After five straight defensive-minded Head Coaches, the Jets figure to pick an offensive guy to oversee the rebuilding of that side of the ball. Bevell is an obvious candidate because he worked with general manager John Idzik, a former Seahawks executive. Bevell's stock has soared with Russell Wilson's rise to stardom. 2. Ken Whisenhunt, San Diego Chargers, Offensive Coordinator: Whisenhunt was the Arizona Cardinals' coach from 2007 to 2012, working alongside then-general manager Rod Graves, now Idzik's right-hand man in the Jets' front office. He was only 45-51 in Arizona, but he won an NFC Championship. Whisenhunt, who won a Super Bowl Ring as the Pittsburgh Steelers' Offensive Coordinator, has helped revive Philip Rivers' career in San Diego. He's a former Jets player and assistant coach. 3. Greg Roman, San Francisco 49ers, offe ...
I'm on board with getting Ken Whisenhunt in there as Head Coach once Schwartz is axed. He helped make Ben Roethlisberger as the OC in Pittsburgh. He brought Kurt Warner back from the dead to lead the Cards to a Super Bowl appearance. And now he's rejuvenating Phil Rivers' career in San Diego as their OC. He makes too much sense to me as the next Lions Head Coach.
After Monday nights loss it's time to get ready for a new coach for the Lions in 2014. I am pushing for Ken Whisenhunt a great coach with great roots. He lead the Arizona Cardinals yes the Cardinals to the Super Bowl as their Head Coach. He was on the staff of Bill Cowher in Pittsburgh winning Super Bowl XL (Played in Detroit) as their Offensive Coordinator. He is currently the Offensive Coordinator for San Diego and doing a great job. So, lets get this done Detroit!
Ravens proved why they are Super Bowl Champions. That had faith in kicker Justin Tucker who hit a 61 yard Field Goal with 38 seconds left to give the Ravens a 18-16 lead. On Detroit's next possession Stafford gets intercepted by Elam with 30 seconds. Detroit has 3 times left. Once Ray Rice got a Ravens 1st down that killed Detroit and they elected to not use any of their 3 timeouts they had left. They just absolutely quit while the Ravens did not. The defending Super Bowl Champions will now look to take on the New England Patriots on Sunday. The Ravens are riding high and look to keep that momentum going on Sunday. Presently the Ravens hold the 6th seed in the AFC Playoff race. They Ravens can clinch that with a win on Sunday AND losses by Miami and San Diego.
Beating those over-rated, soft, whiny, crybabies from Denver just NEVER GETS OLD! They will be watching the Super Bowl on TV, just like the rest of us, LOLOL! Meanwhile - "No team in the AFC wants to play San Diego in the playoffs, they are extremely dangerous." Steve Mariucci (last night).
I've been on the Phillip Rivers bandwagon since he was at NCST. I was hoping PIT would've taken him. So I'm all aboard the San Diego to the Super Bowl train
Record: 12-4, first, AFC Central Points scored/allowed: 421/304 Coach: Forrest Gregg Summary: In yet another example of the imponderable karma of sports, Bill Walsh handed his old Cincinnati team a 21-3 regular-season loss Dec. 6 in a prelude to Super Bowl XVI. With a legend at the helm and a new uniform, the Bengals realized the promise their mid-’70s teams could not, sweeping the Steelers, then beating Buffalo and San Diego for a berth in the big dance. In round one of their two Super Bowl battles with San Francisco, the Bengals fell just shy of a ring thanks in good part to the Forty-Niners’ epic goal-line stand. Offense: 44 Offensive line: 21. Hall of Famer Anthony Munoz’s 5 caps this gang of 4’s. Guard Dave Lapham (center 3) is the only J-4. Munoz also gets a 4 at end, while guard Max Montoya gets a 3 at OT. Best nickname goes to tackle William “Moon Pie” Wilson. Receivers: 11. Rookie Cris “Cadillac” Collinsworth hits the ground running as a 4, A and J-0 — ratings he shares with TE ...
Predicting the AFC West race By Adam Teicher Kansas City, Mo. – As I predicted three weeks ago, the Kansas City Chiefs and not the Denver Broncos will be the undefeated ones on Nov. 17 when the teams get together for the first of their two Annual Meetings. The 9-0 Chiefs are heading into their bye week. The 7-1 Broncos are coming off theirs and play the Chargers on Sunday in San Diego. The race for the AFC West championship will be a fascinating one and the stakes are huge. To the winner goes, most likely, a first-round bye and home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs. The loser gets far less-desirable path to the Super Bowl: three games on the road. The Chiefs have, for now, a 1.5-game lead, so they have some margin for error. But they won’t have much if the Broncos win in San Diego on Sunday. Let’s look at what it might the Chiefs might need to do to win the division. The remaining schedules for the Chiefs and Broncos are similar. They will meet twice, the rematch coming on Dec. 1 at Arrow ...
NFL quibble~ as a 3rd year NFL defensive end I ran across one of my idols the great Bruce Smith of the Buffalo Bills at Keyshawn Johnson's Super Bowl party in San Diego. I thought here's my chance to learn a thing or two from the greatest. I introduced myself to Bruce & asked him if he can tell me the secret to playing defensive end. Bruce, without a word, gestured me over to walk with him. He led me straight to the bar, handed me a drink, and said "that's the secret". Lol!!! We toasted each other & I drank what was some god awful gasoline tasting drink in one gulp & After that I became I darned good defensive end. Must've been some magic juice in that drank. Lol!
Well Bill Callahan looks like you went back to San Diego and called the same offensive game you did in Super Bowl '03...And coach Rod Marinelli and Coach Kiffin you definitely had a better defensive showing last time you visited Qualcomm...but that's a totally different personnel!! Shout out to the '03 Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Week 3 of the NFL season is almost in the books, Denver and Oakland play tonight, but I think we know who has that game in the bag. Here is what we know: The Giants, Steelers, Vikings, Buccaneers and Redskins have to hit the panic button. The Redskins know what it is like to not start off a season very well, but RG3 looks like the average ghost of himself. The New England Patriots got their first solid win today over the Buccaneers, or did they? The Bucs offense was atrocious and the Patriots only scored 23 points with their running game still in trouble. Tom Brady looked better, but not that great. They are 3-0 against mediocre/bad teams, the real test comes against Atlanta. The Houston Texans proved to be a fraud. Last year, everyone thought they were a Super Bowl contender, until they played New England twice, and were crushed both times. Barely beating San Diego, Tennessee and getting destroyed by the Ravens doesn't help your cause this year, and I think we can all agree that Matt Schaub is an average ...
FIVE BEST MOMENTS 1. Speaking out, fall of '93: "The time I complained in the paper about us not blitzing enough. Ray (Rhodes) called me into his office. I wasn't being bad, I just thought we needed to be more aggressive. The next game was one of my best. I blitzed and had a sack and forced a fumble." (Tie) 2a. Coming of age, Jan. 6, 1996: Packers 27, 49ers 17. "Everybody was saying we were going to get beat by so many points and us beating them pretty good." 2b. Super Bowl sack, Jan. 26, 1997: Packers 35, Patriots 21. (Pulling down Drew Bledsoe with one hand): "It was a situation where they thought they had the blitz picked up. But I was real relentless on the play and didn't give up." 3. The last hurrah, Dec. 21, 1991: Packers 27, Vikings 7. "We beat Minnesota in the final game. It was Lindy's (Infante) last game and the last time we beat them up there." 4. Out of nowhere, Dec. 12, 1993: Packers 20, Chargers 13. "We went to San Diego and won that game. We were in a zone defense and Tony Martin ran a hit ...
Did you know this, Todd Badger? "San Diego, which won at Philadelphia, is now the favorite to win the Super Bowl. The Eagles' four most recent home-opener opponents, the Saints, Packers, Giants and Ravens, all won the Super Bowl that season" (espn.com).
Ed Reed focused on playoffs for Texans, not Ravens The Houston Texans signed Ed Reed to be the missing piece in their secondary. So far, the decorated safety has simply been missing. Reed, recovering from offseason hip surgery, sat out both Texans' wins to start the season, and remains a question mark with his old team, the Baltimore Ravens, up next on the schedule. Reed was a call-in guest Tuesday on "The Rich Eisen Podcast," where he explained why missing a game against the team he won a Super Bowl with seven months ago wouldn't be the end of the world. "It's nothing that urged me to play this week, you know I didn't circle this on the calendar," Reed explained. "I said it earlier in the offseason that with my rehab I'm not preparing to play against San Diego or Tennessee or even the Ravens. "It's about being there for the long haul," Reed continued, "being there for the team when it really counts, and that's playoffs, the Super Bowl, AFC Championship Game." Sunday will provide some extra nostalgia for ...

Can Gates still contribute big numbers to the Bolts? -- Ann by Dave Thomas Editor's note: This is a continuation in a series of looks at some of the key Chargers heading into the 2013 season. While he is all but certain to be enshrined in Canton one day, San Diego Chargers tight end Antonio Gates still has some unfinished business on his plate. The former Kent State star is undoubtedly thirsting for a Super Bowl Ring to close out his career, a career which has seen many highs and a few lows as a member of the Bolts. Coming off of San Diego's third straight season without a trip to the playoffs, Gates and Co. are hoping that new Head Coach Mike McCoy can help the team get back to where it once was, that being the dominant player in the AFC West. In 2012, Gates, 33, finished (played in 15 of 16 games) with 49 receptions for 538 yards and seven TD's. While those numbers are not going to blow anyone away, they are not by far the worst for tight ends in the league. Gates, however, would undoubtedly like to ex ...
AFC WEST: Eight in the Box: Secondary status check -- Ann By Bill Williamson How does each AFC West team look in the secondary, and what still needs to be done? Denver Broncos: The Broncos are set in the secondary. Denver added key pieces throughout the roster as it tries to make a Super Bowl run. It signed Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie -- who joins a strong group of cornerbacks -- and former San Diego standout Quentin Jammer, who will be moved from corner to safety and play sort of a roaming role. Denver believes Champ Bailey, who turns 35 on Saturday, can still play at a high level. Helping Bailey and Rodgers-Cromartie are the underrated Chris Harris and Tony Carter. The team also has third-round pick Kayvon Webster and 2012 fourth-round pick Omar Bolden. That’s a pretty deep group. Right now, the starting safeties are Rahim Moore and Mike Adams. But in addition to Jammer, Denver has David Bruton, who was getting first-team work in the offseason, and Quinton Carter. As with the cornerbacks, this is a .. ...
Dwight Freeney sees Peyton Manning in a new light -- Ann By Tom Krasovic When the Chargers and Broncos meet this year, it'll be like a family reunion given the number of former teammates and coaching colleagues. Difference is, if Dwight Freeney embraces Peyton Manning, he plans to drop his former Colts teammate to the turf. Freeney said on San Diego's XTRA Sports 1360 that after years of going against the perennial Pro Bowler in practice, he's looking forward to opposing him without any restrictions. "It would definitely be great to get after him," Freeney said. "He's a great competitor, I'm a great competitor. How many times have I envisioned hitting him during practice, when he had that five-yard halo around him and you couldn't go in that circle? Millions of times. So it would be fun to get after him a little bit." For Broncos pass-rusher Shaun Phillips, it'll be a chance to sack Philip Rivers after practicing against him at Chargers Park since 2004. Phillips, who led the Chargers in sacks last year, . ...
Phillip Rivers as a "middle class" quarterback -- Ann By Tom Krasovic The NFL's collective bargaining agreement isn't a friend to Philip Rivers and other quarterbacks of his ilk. Teams that can win with a young quarterback, I wrote on April 1, will reap gigantic value under this CBA. Here's an excerpt: "Because the NFL labor pact reached in 2011 slashed the salaries that players can make in their first several seasons, teams that acquired worthy quarterbacks from the classes of 2011-12 are able to better reward other players. It's only one reason, but a compelling one, to be bullish on the Colts (Andrew Luck), Seahawks (Russell Wilson), 49ers (Colin Kaepernick), Dolphins (Ryan Tanehill), Redskins (Robert Griffin III) and Panthers (Cam Newton)." Rivers this year will consume 13.9 percent of San Diego's salary cap. While the number should dip in 2014, the lowered salary floor for incoming passers raises questions about how the industry will value the veterans with big salaries, especially in a "flat cap" e ...
I did not know this but yesterday the Denver Broncos picked up Quentin Jammer from the San Diego Chargers. Hopefully maybe this is our year to go to the Super Bowl.
Interesting NFL facts - Johnny Unitas is only Super Bowl winning QB to have died. Unitas ended career in San Diego & Dan Fouts replaced him.
Two weeks of instructing down; three more to go...Really enjoy San Diego, and the coast. Stopped by SD Zoo ($5 to get in for one adult) and Balboa Park too. Fond memories of Corpsman school in 1977. Little chilly again today, but temps heading back up for next weekend. I miss my 3 little friends...Oh yeah, found out I won one of the Super Bowl squares pools I was in...Sweet $500...Lucky, lucky, lucky...Enjoy your Sunday everyone.
I had homemade Chinese dinner, which included goose. I never had goose before in my life, but it's like eating duck. There's a Crazy Buffet in Florida, which sadly closed down. It had offered duck, and that duck is delicious. I had an egg-breaking game once today, and I had luck, but my stepbrother was luckier. Today was the start of a new lunar year, and fireworks had popped around in China, but not in San Diego. The familiar attractions during the Lunar New Year celebrations in California included party music, YouTube Remixes, Tivo'd competition shows such as the Super Bowl and the still-ongoing reality shows such as Top Chef and Project Runway, and sometimes, the acknowledging of the doggy culture (of which the Dog show is coming in the next two days). But the Lunar New Year Party is still going on on our soil. I may have to entertain you with some videos that I am going to share in soon. Also, be aware of my scrambled posts, as I am upping the ante!
FB friends, need a little help & want to ask a poll question. "In your opinion, What is the best city in US to host a Super Bowl"?? FYI, New Orleans(10) , Miami(10), Los Angeles(7), Tampa(4) & San Diego(3) are the top 5 cities in hosting. ATL has hosted (2). I'm in NOLA for my 15th Super Bowl. Just bought my souvenir football. Awaiting your response. Please vote!
Day five of Kody's Super Bowl week: January 29, 1995. The 18 1/2 point favorite San Francisco 49ers faced off what some called the Cinderella San Diego Chargers in Joe Robbie Stadium in Miami, Florida. San Francisco was in their 5th Super Bowl, but their first with someone other the Joe Montana at quarterback. San Diego was in their first ever appearance in the Super Bowl. Steve Young, two time Super Bowl backup, made his presence fast by throwing touchdowns on the teams first two drives. The Chargers were able to respond to the 49ers' second touchdown making it 14-7 but they never were able to slow down San Francisco who took a 28-10 into the half. San Francisco started the second half scoring 14 unanswered points until San Diego scored and converted a 2-point conversion making it 42-18. Both teams scored in the fourth making this the first Super Bowl were both teams scored in each quarter of play and the game ended with a 49ers 49-26 win. Steve Young famously got the monkey off his back by winning MVP t ...
road trip to Vegas for Super Bowl weekend tomorrow! Going to see Cirque De Soleil The Beatles Love tomorrow night, then watch the Niners bring the Lombardi Trophy back to Cali Sunday, been away too long. Maybe one of these days the Bolts will bring it to San Diego. I do like the direction the team is heading so far this off season.
Tim Mcgraw is set to release his highly anticipated Big Machine Records debut, Two Lanes of Freedom, on Feb. 5th with performances kicking off on location at the Super Bowl in New Orleans on Good Morning America this Friday (Feb. 1). From New Orleans, fans can catch McGraw over the weekend on Austin City Limits (Feb. 2) and CBS Sunday Morning (Feb. 3). He heads to the West Coast for The Ellen DeGeneres Show (Feb. 5) and a special live stream Ram Country on Yahoo! performance later that night aboard the USS Midway in San Diego at 7:30 p.m. ET. He will guest on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (Feb. 6) and Jimmy Kimmel Live! (Feb. 7), pay tribute to friend and MusiCares Person of the Year Bruce Springsteen (Feb. 8) and wrap up with a visit to Chelsea Lately (Feb. 11).
I just found a vinyl copy of a Fred Waring album on amazon.com, containing a cut by the guy I used to play for in San Diego, Chuck Nelson. He was such a great baritone, but I never got him on tape, for some reason. I played for him off and on for about 12 years. He was a sensational singer, but schizophrenic, so he never hung around long in any one place. It will be interesting to hear him from the early years. I remember hearing him on a tape he had, once. Terrific, but different from the darker, more mature voice we knew. He was good enough for opera, and was always being courted by the big guys, but he'd never stay around long enough to do them any good. Someone once said you could fix it for him to sing the Star Spangled Banner at the Super Bowl (and you could have, too) and he wouldn't show. A shame, that illness.
Now here comes the first brother vs. brother coaching matchup in Super Bowl history. John's Baltimore Ravens dismantled New England 28-13 here Sunday night. Just hours earlier Jim's San Francisco 49ers outlasted Atlanta 28-24. Their two teams will meet Feb. 3 in New Orleans for the NFL championship. It will be the pinnacle for America's first coaching family. John is 15 months the elder and is a coaching lifer. Jim enjoyed a 15-year NFL career as a quarterback before becoming a Head Coach in the college ranks at the University of San Diego and Stanford.
I love my Super Bolt Chargers and today a Era begins with a new GM and HC. Philip Rivers is a great QB. Hopefully, he will get the opportunity to reach and win that elusive Super Bowl for San Diego and help get a new stadium to keep my Chargers in town.

Many people think that their city might by cursed because of the lack of success of local sports teams. For example Buffalo, Cleveland, Phoenix, San Diego. These cities haven't one any major sports championship in over 40 years/ ever. I'm sure there are many more unfortunate cities as well. In my opinion Buffalo is the most cursed, " no goal", "wide right", " Music City Miracle", 4 straight Super Bowl losses, lost grant for MLB team, lost NBA team, 0-4 Super Bowl, 0-2 Stanley Cup. WHICH SPORTS CITY DO YOU GUYS THINK IS THE MOST CURSED? - Jordan
Week 14 and we start with the BIG Game. A possible Super Bowl preview between the Cowboys and the Bengals! I'm not kidding. If playing hot football as winter swirls catapults you into a Roman Numeral Game these two teams fit that formula. The Bengals have roared off 4 straight wins. Dallas has won 3 out of 4. How'd that happen? Actually the Cowboys can really dig themselves out of a hole with a win since their next two games are at home. Maybe that's NOT a good thing for the Pokes who still haven't adjusted to playing in their new ranch. The Stripes are just as unimpressive at Paul Brown. Only 3-3. Cincinnati is a pretty balanced football team on both sides of the ball. Even plus minus is 0. Solid football team playing good team ball at the right time. First half of season Dalton was an interception machine wit ten. Since the Bengals bye, he's thrown 3, 2 came last week against San Diego. Ben Jarvis Green-Ellis is also starting to carry the rock. His time of year. Dallas is barely breathing and the Bengal ...

The Ravens generated some heat by practicing indoors on Turkey Day, the better to get used to the unseasonable heat in San Diego. Also, a look at Philip Rivers, the latest Super Bowl odds board, trivia and more at
It's NFL Week 10-Byes this week include-Arizona, Cleveland, Green Bay and Washington. The team I am calling out this week is the Super Bowl Champion NY Giants-Hopefully they bounce back this week and beat Cincinnati. My Saddest Game of the Week is Dallas at Philadelphia. Basura Game of the Week is Kansas City at Pittsburgh. Game of the Week is Houston at Chicago. Here are my picks this week-Jacksonville over Indianapolis, New England over Buffalo, Tennessee over Miami, Seattle over NY Jets, Baltimore over Oakland, NY Giants over Cincinnati, Denver over Carolina, Tampa Bay over San Diego, Philadelphia over Dallas, New Orleans to shock Atlanta, Detroit over Minnesota, San Francisco over St. Louis, Da Bears over Houston and Pittsburgh destroys Kansas City!!!
On Sunday, ESPN reported that suspended New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton was in further coaching limbo after having his contract extension voided by the NFL. Barring a new agreement with the Saints, Payton could become a free agent at the end of the season. Although Payton has been tainted by the Bountygate scandal, you'd have to think that there still would be plenty of teams willing to hire a Super Bowl-winning coach, a man who owns one of the game's most brilliant offensive minds. Owners and general managers would trip over themselves to make him an offer to come to cities that could have vacancies — Philadelphia, San Diego, Kansas City, Cleveland, Jacksonville and Tennessee seemingly among the options. Let me see, did I leave any possibility out? Oh, yeah ... Dallas — which happens to be the place I believe Payton will end up in 2013. I think Payton and his agent, or someone close to Payton, leaked the story to ESPN for a number of possible reasons: to squeeze the Saints by putting public pres ...
Guten Tag, That's Good Day for the German language impaired. I hope all are safe from the recent weather related events. I wanted to spend some time on a topic that bothers me. The National Football League (NFL), has two conferences; The AFC and The NFC. The American Football Conference, which consists of teams like Miami, Baltimore, Cleveland, San Diego etc. do not have any starting Black quarterbacks. The National Football Conference has teams such as Washington, Seattle, Philadelphia, Tampa Bay and The Carolina Panthers. All five of the teams I've mentioned have black quarterbacks. Why doesn't the AFC have any? A few years ago the Chicago Bears and The Indy Colts played in the Super Bowl. It was the first time two teams were represented by African-American Head Coaches; Lovie Smith for the Bears and Tony Dungee for the Colts. The uproar that follwed was not advertised but was broadcast quietly and in hushed tones. Do you think that in 2012 the NFL would purposely put all of the African_American quarter ...
Can't sleep.. Thinking the last time we were here at my-step son Frankie and family was for the Super Bowl party and Frank was sick not knowing it was his gall bladder until he was hospitalized in Santa Rosa two days later. Today were gathering together with more family members and friends in his honor... He loved Frankie's BBQ's at the two acres ranch in Paso Robles one of his dreams to move away from the sub-division and have peace of mind. He was jealous of families that lived in the country. Heading to San Diego to my nephews Francisco Jauregui house tomorrow!
You know, as a fan of San Diego teams, let me tell you how much I LOVE watching the Chargers dumped Brees and he won a Super Bowl, and Bruce Bochy once led the Padres, is now playing in a World Series, and won a World Series. San Diego ownership is dumb.
The Broncos may be more fearsome than they appear. If there's a favorite team to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl this season, it probably would be the Houston Texans. They have the best record in the conference at 6-1, they just waxed the next-best team (Baltimore) 43-13, and their only loss came at the hands of an NFC squad (Green Bay). Is there any reason to think they won't be hoisting the Lamar Hunt Trophy in January? Actually, yes. The Texans are not the highest-ranked AFC team in Football Outsiders' latest rankings. That honor goes to the Denver Broncos, perhaps the league's most underrated team. The Broncos are only 3-3, but that mediocre record is not an accurate reflection of this team's performance this year. Their three losses have come against three division leaders (Houston, Atlanta and New England) with a combined record of 16-4. And it's not as if the teams Denver has beaten are pushovers, either. Pittsburgh, San Diego and Oakland have a combined record of 8-10. All in all, Denver's opp ...
Here goes all these people hyping Payton Manning up again. Everybody knows San Deigo defense is weak. What happen to Manning in big games? Yes, Big Ben throw int in first game to lose. But Payton Threw an INT to lose the Super Bowl. Ben through a touchdown pass to win a Super Bowl.i would talk Ben and Eli anytime over Payton any day. Remember Tim Tebow had a winner record with the Denver last year. Tebow beat San Diego in San Diego last year in a came back. Tebow is playing special teams with Jets. So what Manning did last night is not that special.
Peyton Manning and Broncos down by 24 came back and kicked Phillip Rivers and The Chargers. By the way San Diego thanks for letting Drew Brees go way back when and he took the Saints to a Super Bowl win. You said Rivers was ya'lls ticket to the Super Bowl when you let Brees go. Well Brees is wearing the ring.
Here's my fearless NFL Picks after a 2nd straight 10-5 week. Arizona d Buffalo; New England d Seattle (Brady & offense too good despite West Coast travel for Pats); San Francisco d NY Giants (Niners at home and revenge from last year's playoff loss); Minnesota d Washington (if RG3 healthier, I would actually pick the Skins!); Houston d Green Bay (we'll see if Houston is worthy of Super Bowl talk!); Denver d San Diego (winner could control AFC West - Money on Peyton!); Tampa Bay d Kansas City; Indianapolis d NY Jets (LUCK says Indy wins! He is a remarkable QB!); Cincinnati d Cleveland; Philadelphia d Detroit (loser out of playoffs); Atlanta d Oakland; Miami d St. Louis (tight one to call! Miami QB & Reggie Bush playing well and at home); Baltimore d Dallas (same for Ravens - to be in Super Bowl talk, they must knock out Jerry's Cowboys!) ... 5-Week Record: 43-35.
At the conclusion of the Week 4 NFL slate of games, not much is changing at the top of the charts. As for the bottom, the rest of the season will probably be a coin flip for those anyway as teams go through hot and cold streaks plus injuries. One thing for sure is I won't have to make room for the Browns or the Saints this year. So here it is.Jaybee's AFC/NFC Power 6. Jaybee's AFC Power 6 1. Houston 2. Baltimore 3. San Diego 4. New England 5. Cincinnati 6. Denver I didn't want to put Denver back on the list but the three teams I considered was Denver, Pittsburgh and Oakland. Since the Broncos beat them both, this seemed like a no-brainer. Jaybee's NFC Power 6 1. Atlanta 2. San Francisco 3. Chicago 4. Green Bay 5. Arizona 6. Minnesota As for the previous 3 weeks, I feel very strongly about my top 3 and am not even completely sure that a list of 6 is even necessary. If I had to bet the farm tomorrow, I would bank on the Super Bowl winner coming from one of the top three on the NFC list.
So the San Diego Chargers are a humiliating 2-1 as of Sunday evening. After getting their lightening Bolt colored *** run out of their own stadium, the Q. Phillip River 175 total yards offense, of course 2 interceptions. My Chargers got dogged by the Atlanta Falcon, with former Charger and back up too LT Michael Turner. So Norv Turner and Aj Smith are at it again. "Hey fellas we beat this bunch...they have to fly across the country to beautiful sunny San Diego!" Said Al Smith before that serious *** kicking. We got royally served! Okay I am over it. Power ranking is way down. Study harder guys it was just one major loss not the end of the world...Remember Aj and Norv no Super Bowl...No jobs for you too! Enough already do your jobs and win games no more excuses! Steven how about them miners? Oh Raider fans don't get too happy you won against a hurt Pittsburg team you still suck and as sorry as we are we still beat you at home. Don't cry. Them Cowboys...What about Seattle Seahawks teaming up with the repl . ...

Our focus remains prevalent here in San Diego. It will continue to be Super Bowl or bust for us!!! It's not about winning the NFC South or just making the playoffs!! This season is a waste without a Lombardi Trophy!! Our 5 year plan for a Championship is in it's 5th year. It's time to Rise Up and get this done this year!! 2012 is the year of the Atlanta Falcons!
X-Factor's Inside the Huddle Healthy secondary is critical for Chiefs If there’s one truism in the NFL it’s that you can’t have success as a one-dimensional team.I’m talking about more than just a running attack or an aerial assault.I’m talking about defense and offense.Despite all the gaudy numbers put up in the Air Coryell days at San Diego, they never won a Super Bowl. They never even won the AFC Championship.And despite having one of the best defensive teams in the NFL year in and year out, the Baltimore Ravens have only one Super Bowl appearance (2001) and one Super Bowl Ring to show for it.Right now, the Chiefs don’t have an offense as prolific as San Diego’s under Don Coryell and they don’t have a defense that compares with Baltimore’s, but we may be closer than it appeared in our 40-24 loss to Atlanta.For one half our defense looked as solid as any team in the NFL.But we needed defense. And without a secondary there was nothing we could do to slow down quarterback Matt Ryan and h ...
I don't really have a good feel for this NFL season, so I'll play it kind of safe and say New England over Philly in the Super Bowl. Biggest surprises - Carolina and Buffalo. Biggest busts - Denver and NY Giants. Playoff teams, AFC: NE, Pittsburgh, Houston, San Diego, Baltimore, and Buffalo. NFC: Green Bay, Philly, New Orleans, San Fran, Chicago, and Carolina.
Kiss my *** Raiders Fans Super Bowl XLVII is scheduled to kick off on February 3, 2013 in New Orleans. If Peter King of Sports Illustrated is correct, the Broncos will be there playing for the Vince Lombardi Trophy. In this week’s magazine, King predicts Denver to win the AFC Title and face Green Bay in the Super Bowl, with the Packers edging the Broncos by a field goal in the Championship Game, 33-30. “Fifteen years ago John Elway won a 31-24 shootout with Brett Favre in the Super Bowl,” King wrote. “This time Elway will be watching from a Superdome box, not helicoptering over tacklers in San Diego.” On their way to New Orleans, the Broncos are predicted to defeat Baltimore 27-25 in the Wild Card Round, then the Texans 23-20 in the Divisional Round before topping the Patriots 19-17 in the AFC Championship Game. All three hypothetical playoff matchups would be rematches from Denver’s regular-season schedule. The magazine has the Broncos finishing tied atop the AFC West at 10-6 with Kansas City ...
My SUPER EARLY NFL Playoff Seeds [Version 2.0]: AFC_NFC 1.) Houston.1.) Green Bay 2.) New England.2.) San Francisco 3.) Baltimore.3.) Atlanta 4.) San Diego.4.) Dallas 5.) Cincinnati.5.) Chicago 6.) Buffalo.6.) Detroit Super Bowl: Baltimore 17 v Detroit 14 I got a lot of complaints about Pittsburgh not making the playoffs. Big Ben with a new offense, torn rotator cuff, and a disgruntled Mike Wallace...it's not happening people. I've moved New England to the two seed by proxy of their easy schedule. The AFC is clearly the weaker conference. I think with solid QB play the Bills are a sleeper team, I also think that Peyton is going to get injured with the Broncos this season. Even without Suggs the Ravens are still my current favorite. The NFC has a lot of quality teams that will be fighting for playoff spots. The Bears were a Super Bowl caliber team before Cutler got hurt, and they've only gotten better. Only one team will make it out alive in the NFC east, and I think it will be Dallas. I don't particula ...
Your boy Gus Johnson predicted Detroit v San Diego in the Super Bowl on the radio show.
I hope next year time permits so that we can make my friend Doug Williams Celebrity Golf Tournament that helps our babies , I was blessed to see and spend some time with Doug Williams before the Super Bowl XXII Game in San Diego they were beating the *** out of him in the San Diego and the national media because he had the nerves to be a Black Man not only trying to play in a Super Bowl but had the nerves and thought to fix his mind that he could win. My meeting with Doug Williams was poolside at the host hotel for the Redskins he had his frontline with him they were all trying to cheer him up cause the media was beating the *** of him and I told Doug Williams don't worry about what the white people are saying about you, you are the Original Man and anyway Dougee' Fresh and I started beat boxing and his fronline join me beating boxing and I will never forget the big smile that came over his beautiful Black face and the rest is history We must tell our stories of our greats because We should know by kno . ...
Most Unlucky Professional Sports Team Ever... Junior Seau's apparent suicide stunned an entire city and saddened former teammates who recalled the former NFL star's ferocious tackles and habit of calling everybody around him "Buddy." "I'm sorry to say, Superman is dead," said Shawn Mitchell, a chaplain for the San Diego Chargers. "All of us can appear to be super, but all of us need to reach out and find support when we're hurting." Seau, who played in the NFL for parts of 20 seasons, is the eighth member of San Diego's lone Super Bowl team who has died, all before the age of 45. Lew Bush, Shawn Lee, David Griggs, Rodney Culver, Doug Miller, Curtis Whitley and Chris Mims are the others. Causes of death ranged from heart attacks to a plane crash to a lightning strike.
Those 1994 Chargers, led by former Citadel Head Coach Bobby Ross, remain San Diego's only Super Bowl team, but football disappointment keeps giving way to tragedy. Junior Seau, the victim of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, on Wednesday became the eighth player on the Chargers' Super Bowl roster to die young. “Junior Seau meant an awful lot to me,” Ross said Thursday from his home in Richmond, Va. “It was just a privilege for me to have the opportunity to work with him. He was such a pleasure to work with. Just very, very special.” Ross has been to funerals and hugged crying fathers. He is 75 and suffering from skin cancer. The old coach should be getting cheery calls from ex-players, not phoning them with condolences about the loss of yet another teammate.
San Diego, the NFL, and the world lost a football legend and icon today RIP Junior Seau! Wish he coulda won a super bowl for San Diego, or *** even New England. Its ok tho he won so much more than a rimg, he has left his mark, will be remembered forever, and missed deeply!
Wow...praying for the family, also the families of all listed below...(San Diego, CA) -- Junior Seau is just the latest in a disturbing trend of player deaths surrounding the San Diego Chargers. According to the "Washington Post," the former Pro Bowl linebacker is the eighth member of the Chargers 1994 Super Bowl team that has died at a young age. Linebackers Lew Bush, Dave Griffs and Doug Miller, running back Rodney Culver, center Curtis Whitley, defensive end Chris Mims and defensive tackle Shawn Lee all passed away between 1995 and 2011. The causes range from car and plane crashes, drug overdose and even a lightning strike.
The 1994 Chargers won the AFC title, bringing San Diego its only Super Bowl appearance. But ever since, the roster has produced an eerie stretch of tragic losses. Junior Seau committed suicide on May 2, 2012. Shawn Lee, a star defender on those '94 AFC champs, died in Raleigh, N.C. of cardiac arrest in March of 2012. "Not again," former Chargers running back Natrone Means told the San Diego Union-Tribune. "It's crazy, just crazy, that we've had so many guys who have fallen. I can't make any sense of it. I've given up trying. You just hope you quit getting these random messages out of nowhere that another teammate has passed away." The odds are already stacked against NFL players - life-expectancy rates are 53 to 59, depending on position, according to one study. But the '94 Chargers have suffered through an unusual string of young casualties - with each player dying under a variety of circumstances. Five months after the team lost to the 49ers in Super Bowl XXIX, 28-year-old linebacker David Griggs died i ...
